PVC-U wins over aluminium in prestigious new-build

PVC-U wins over aluminium in prestigious new-build

More than 500 PVC-U windows were chosen for an 11-storey residential new-build, X1 The Exchange, close to the prestigious Media City in Salford Quays after the developer was presented with specification and costings that showed the material to be an economic alternative to the aluminium frames originally specified.

The windows, as well as 100 doors, were made and installed using the Spectus Elite 70 bevelled system with 8.8mm laminated acoustic glass and additional EPDM seal. The installation was completed in 4 months.

The £13.6million project was for 140 one and two bed apartments, office space and residents’ gym.

The Spectus Approved Window Contractor scheme offers specifiers access to a UK-wide network of high-calibre window contractors, trained in matters such as construction law and site management, and fully supported by Spectus’s own technical and specification teams. It also offers specifiers benefits such as a completely free design and specification service, where many other window systems suppliers do not offer such a service.
