PVC-U windows from Eurocell were chosen for the prestigious Ensleigh estate, near a UNESCO World Heritage Site, by the planning authorities of Bath.
The planners originally wanted timber windows, but these, fascias and soffits would require expensive maintenance because of the scaffolding required to paint them. The PVC-U alternatives chosen not only have kerb-appeal but are maintenance-free.
The foil gives an appearance like timber and the colour palette includes the heritage type colours that fit in with a period environment such as Bath.
Coming with a 12-year guarantee, the Modus system is available in nine solid and woodgrain-effect colours, all of which are available with white internal finishes to create a light and airy living environment. A further range of more than 40 solid and woodgrain effect finishes is available, including colour both sides.
BBA certified to function satisfactorily for more than 35 years, the Modus range has a U-value of 1.2 W/m² using 4/20/4 mm sealed double-glazed units. This effective thermal performance is due to the 75mm six-chamber profile system used in the Modus that enables the range to achieve a U-value as low as 0.7 by installing triple-glazed units. This led to Modus becoming one of the very first systems to achieve the BRFC Window Energy Rating (WER) of A++. This is only awarded to windows with an energy index value equal to or greater than +20; and Modus A++ designs include casement, reversible and tilt and turn.
Consisting of 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard, this range of doors and windows has a smaller carbon footprint than products made or recycled outside of the UK.
To simplify specification, Modus BIM models are available to download for free from the Eurocell website.
