Eurocell Modus Maxes Energy Ratings
4 October 2015
Modus is one of two leading systems from Eurocell to achieve the BRFC’s most recent and stringent Window Energy Ratings (WER) of A++. This landmark award is further recognition of Modus’s market-leading energy efficiency characteristics. The company’s Eurologik system has also been similarly recognized. Modus designs with the new A++ rating include casement, reversible and tilt and turn; together with the Eurologik 70 casement.
These windows are among the very first to achieve the ‘A++’ band in England & Wales for WERs since the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) launched the new rating in May 2015. ‘A++ is only given to those windows with an energy index value equal to or greater than +20.
“Achieving the BFRC ‘A++’ ratings band underlines the fact that Eurocell is driving forward energy efficiency innovations that give homeowners the latest and best in high performance window windows,” says Chris Coxon, Head of Marketing.
The first PVC-U window and door system to offer a 12-year guarantee, the Modus system features a unique 75mm six-chamber profile system so it can achieve a U-value as low as 0.7 from a standard system using standard triple-glazed units.
It is available in nine solid and woodgrain effect colours, all of which are available with white internal finishes, while more than 40 solid and woodgrain effect finishes can also be ordered, with colour both internally and externally. With sustainability in mind, the Modus range consists of 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard, and so has a smaller carbon footprint than products made or recycled outside of the UK.
Perfect for new build or replacement windows, the 70mm front-to-back dimension of the Eurologik 70 enables timber frames to be replaced seamlessly while providing clean sight lines due to its unobtrusive gasket line and slim profile. Available with chamfered or sculptured ovolo beads in a range of colours, the advanced multi-chambered design of the main Eurologik 70 profiles (including the optional six-chamber slim outer frame system) and innovative PVC-U thermal inserts work together to lock in heat.
