Video strikes the right note for vinyl success

By PRW Staff
Posted 3 October 2012

The BPF’s vinyls group has launched a video that looks at the savings achievable by choosing PVC products. The short animated film includes details of two local authority case studies.

One study, conducted for Stockton-on-Tees Council, found that it was possible to install twice as many PVC windows as timber alternatives for the same price while another review, conducted by Green Party lead Brighton and Hove Council, found that by swapping to PVC products the authority could £36m over a period of five years.

Roger Mottram, chairman of the BPF’s vinyls group, said: "Local authorities that have conducted detailed assessments of the cost and performance of PVC products and alternatives are to be congratulated.

“The massive cost savings achieved by using PVC products not only ensures that householders are saving on council tax bills, but also enables improved insulation and living conditions in the buildings where high performance PVC products are used."
