At Three Counties, our uPVC windows are sold with Q-Lon gaskets. These gaskets will give you peace of mind when it comes to weatherproofing your home and limiting the amount of outside noise coming indoors.
Q-lon Gaskets (Q-Lon Seals)
Q-Lon gaskets are made from polyurethane foam, giving the gasket high durability and 99% compression recovery. This core is then coated in weather and UV resistant film, which is also compatible with cleaning agents. Rest assured, these gaskets will be able to withstand a lot – promising protection against temperatures as low as -20°c and as high as 70°c.
The 99% retention mentioned above allows for the gasket to keep its shape. Often, windows can lose some of their weatherproofing ability due to the gasket losing its shape and allowing in draughts and water, as well as the ability to soundproof as originally. Three Counties will provide uPVC windows with these gaskets as standard, which will ensure a long life for your windows. In addition to weatherproofing and sound dampening, Q-Lon gaskets also help prevent air leaks, dust and insects from entering your home.
The weatherproofing qualities which come with the Q-Lon gasket will increase the heat retention capabilities of your home. Heating your home faster and saving money on energy bills will come naturally, as well as the reduction of your home’s carbon footprint. And, since this gasket remembers its original shape so well, even when your windows are understandably closed throughout the long, English winters, this efficiency will remain for years to come.
At Three Counties, we give a 10-year warranty with our windows. The gasket itself comes with a 20-year guarantee, backing up its incredible durability but still allowing for a replacement should an issue arise within the guarantee period.
