Spectus for housing development with nearly 500 homes

Spectus for housing development with nearly 500 homes

Spectus Elite 70 system was specified for Wilburn Basin, a new high quality housing development of nearly 500 homes sited around the historic River Irwell Basin, Manchester.

PVC-U windows and doors were chosen because of their ability to deliver the aesthetics, performance and U values needed within the budget required. With a total of 1,200 windows, including stacked/ribbon windows, plus 440 sets of French doors needed, the contract was a demanding one.

The specifications were exacting too, with high levels of acoustic glazing required on elevations that were located next to busy roads into the city centre, the railway line and a retail park. The high rise nature of some of the buildings meant that complex wind load calculations were needed to ensure the products met current standards.

Spectus Elite 70 system with an Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) Smooth on White foil finish was chosen. The windows offered an overall U value of 1.2 W/m² and the company achieved the high dB ratings needed to meet the specifications by using acoustic laminate glass backed with different thicknesses of low e glass.
