Profile 22 has supplied its Optima Casement solution to 62 social housing properties in Rusholme, Manchester for Arawak Walton Housing Association.
434 Profile 22 Optima Casement PVC-U windows were supplied for the refurbishment works on the homes. The existing windows had the original timber frames and glazing from when the properties were originally constructed in the 1990’s and replacing them would greatly enhance the looks and performance of the homes for the tenants.
The award-winning Profile 22 Optima range offers three options: a sculptured system, a chamfered system, and a flush casement system, making it an extremely versatile range.
Optima has a six-chambered outerframe and a five-chambered sash, which can also be used with RCM thermal inserts to increase the number of insulating chambers. With the option of additional center seals to the outerframe and sash to give outstanding insulation and weather protection. Combined with intelligent glazing innovations it means that Optima double glazed units are capable of achieving a U-value of 1.2 W/m2K. And with triple glazing filled with Argon gas, U-values as low as 0.8 W/m2K can be achieved.
Optima combines a host of features to maximise security and strength. A central Eurogroove gives the sashes greater rigidity. The secure bead system passes security tests without glazing clips and is ready for proposed enhancements to PAS24.
To assist with ease of installation the Optima window system incorporates a deeper drainage channel and features strategic local wall thickening for better screw and hardware retention. The dedicated floating mullion on the French doors and windows is self-holding on the first fix, so it can be easily clipped in, making the installation a fast and simple process.
