BRE energy efficient refurbishment using Eurocell windows and doors

BRE Exemplar Project Partner Eurocell and its approved fabricator Nationwide Windows have worked with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and British Gas to refurbish Smart Home in Garston, Watford.

Eurocell windows, The Dales Collection of composite doors and BBA-Approved Aspect bi-fold doors were specified for the refurbishment as they provide high levels of thermal efficiency, sustainability and value for money.

Calculations indicate that the replacement Eurocell windows and doors will provide greater air tightness than the existing timber windows as well as improving U values. The refurbishment aims to improve the three-bedroom home’s energy efficiency from an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of ‘E’ to a ‘B’ or an ‘A’.

The existing timber casement windows were replaced with casement and tilt & turn versions fabricated and installed by Rugby-based Nationwide Windows, using the Eurocell Eurologik profile system. All new windows incorporate the Eurocell PVC-U Thermal Inserts to improve the frames thermal performance and, being made from 100% post-consumer recycled PVC-U, provide a sustainable method of dealing with end-of-life PVC-U frames from refurbishment projects. Eurocell operates the UK’s largest post-consumer PVC-U recycling facility near to its headquarters in Derbyshire.
