PVC-U the smart choice for Gateway student accommodation

PVC-U the smart choice for Gateway student accommodation

Around 600 PVC-U tilt-turn windows in the Profile 22 system were chosen for The Gateway, a £22million student accommodation in Lincoln.

The work was carried out in line with strict deadlines, and the project was completed in good time ready for the beginning of the academic year.

The tilt-turn windows were fabricated by Profile 22’s Approved Window Contractor, Polar Windows, using the fully chamfered system, foiled with smooth finish RAL 7016 Anthracite grey as a special order to colour match the aluminium design scheme.

As well as achieving the specified acoustic ratings of 39 Db reduction and a U-Value of 1.4 W/m²K, solar control glazing was used in the mainly east, south and west facing elevations to limit the solar gain to G-0.4. Meanwhile, the windows were further weatherproofed with EPDM membranes to ensure an airtight seal against bad weather.
