Are roof windows recyclable?


Fakro roof windows are made from a combination of expertly engineered parts, some of which are wood, some plastic and some aluminium. Fakro are proud to have taken the lead in making sure all elements, when removed from the roof window as a whole, are recyclable. Even the hard PVC elements in our modern window systems are recyclable, with each plastic element having a usable life of over 30 years, and the ability to recycle them up to 10 times, the PVC in our roof windows can be used for over 300 years!

We also pride ourselves in sourcing solid pine for the wooden elements too, conforming to FSC stipulations that state that for every one tree harvested for our windows two are planted as replacement.
