Klima windows and doors are made from a highly durable, 'hot country' uPVC — an environmentally-friendly, lead-free formulation.

Klima's product range comprises sliding, hinged and French doors and awning, casement and sliding windows. A tilt-n-turn window with inward opening casement/hopper sash is also offered.

Klima is rated to the maximum 6 energy stars under WEERS when used with Low-E double glazing.
