110 VEKA casements complete Sussex housing development

Lancashire-based Sovereign Group Ltd. has completed a significant project of window fabrication and installation for a sustainable home development, using industry-leading PVC-U systems from The VEKA UK Group.

Mike Ferguson, Marketing Manager for Sovereign Group explains: “What differentiates the fenestration in this project from many residential developments is the size of the windows. Suitable rooms on both the ground and upper floors were treated to casements with additional fixed sashes beneath the traditional threshold of windows in UK homes – the obvious benefits being increased light ingress and a greater sense of connection from the interior to the outdoors.”

While increased glazed areas would historically lessen a home's energy efficiency and thermal insulation, Sovereign's use of VEKA M70 profile enabled minimum U-values of 1.4 to be achieved throughout. “M70 has long been considered a 'standard' throughout the industry”, Mike continues. “Besides its crisp, understated looks – a great match for the modernistic styling of these properties – its technical and security credentials have future-proofed these buildings for many years; reinforcing the sustainability at the heart of the project.

“M70's compatibility with the highest quality hardware enabled us to fit Securistyle Defender Restrictor hinges, key-locking handles to ground-floor and other appropriate windows, and green-buttoned unlockable systems at fire and emergency egress points. A combination of toughened plain and stipple-light glazing from Cotswold completed the units, which were foiled in grey to continue the contemporary aesthetic – evident throughout the project as a whole.”

Sovereign fabricated and installed a total of 110 outward-opening casement windows into the development of two and three-bedroomed homes, with a value of around £34k.
