category the lowest price
The cheapest PVC windows for June 2019 according to our ranking is Gealan 8000 cheaper by ~30% than the most expensive profile on the market
If every euro counts, for example in the case of a tender, Gealan 8000 meets the minimum criteria set by the investor – you have the guarantee that the product from the Veka group (Gealan is part of this group, like Skoda is a part of the Volkswagen group) at a low price guarantees reliability and solid quality.
Second place went to Decco 71. Its disadvantage is the fact that with a low price we get equally low quality of the product. However, if you sell the windows to an individual customer – it’s better to spare a moment to familiarize him with the benefits of using a better product. For a little more we will get a better rated bluEvolution 73 from Salamander, the winner of category value for money.
category the best quality
The best windows in our double glazed uPVC windows ranking are Schuco Corona CT 70 and Salamander bluEvolution 73, with score 14.5 points
Schuco CT70 also obtained the same results, but it’s much more expensive. They won with the competitors because of excellent fittings from Siegenia Titan AF, as well as numerous accessories that we will receive as a standard and we won’t have to pay extra for them.
Schuco is also distinguished by the option of express production in just one week (white and external anthracite windows), whilst the cheaper competitor offers the possibility of using the package of three panes with a coefficient of 0.5.
Just behind these two is Rehau 70, which despite the lack of the option of express window ordering and Ug = 0.5, qualitatively presents equally high level.
category value for money (quality / price)
As we announced above, Salamander bluEvolution 73 is the best window in the category of good and cheap.
On May comparison of double glazed PVC windows with double gaskets due to the value for money Salamander 73 totally beats other rivals, it matches the quality of much more expensive competitors.
Gealan 8000 is in second place. On the test set, you’ll save about 100-125 euros, but you will not get a few useful additions in the standard, which increase the attractiveness of the window for your customers.
So if your company is looking for a system that is the golden mean between its market reputation, the actual quality and the price you need to pay for it, Salamander 73 in the 70mm class will be the best choice (sometimes known as Brugmann bluEvolution 73).
The calculation method was simple – we divided the number of points obtained by the price we have to pay for the whole set, and then for the sake of clarity we multiplied by 10000. The higher the score – the better value for money.

Thermal insulation of window (Uw)
All systems have a coefficient of heat transmission within the limits Uw=1,34-1,39.
To prepare this comparison we took characteristics of example window with dimensions 1230×1480 tilt and turn type, double glazing (Ug=1.1)
How important is that coefficient in fact?
We checked how it’s translated into real savings of our clients. There are many energy calculators on the Internet – we used that from www.oszczednydom.pl.
For test set of windows with surface area, 20 m2 differences on level 0,01-0,05 bring savings of approximately a few euros a year (!)
From an economic perspective, it’s not a significant difference. Therefore we gave in solidarity 2 points to six profiles.
Also, remember that in the case of a customer who is looking for the cheapest windows, the thermal insulation criterion goes to the background. So the questions become… is it worth overpaying?
Each of the tested sets of windows is equipped with the best quality fittings.

All of them will be produced with the same system from the only one producer. We gave to each profile 2 points.
