PVC-U Products For Sustainable Buildings
Supporting carbon-neutral construction.
Sustainability is a key issue for the construction industry. In the UK, buildings are responsible for producing around half the nation’s total CO2 emissions, which is why the government is setting strict targets for carbon reduction to encourage more efficient, sustainable building design and construction.
As the UK’s leading manufacturer of PVC-U building components, Eurocell has developed a range of highperformance, energy-efficient products to help specifiers, fabricators and fitters to achieve this target.
PVC-U – the sustainable building material
Thanks to advances in recycling and product innovation, PVC-U is now widely recognised as a sustainable option for the construction industry. Old PVC-U window and door frames can be recycled and repurposed up to ten times without deterioration in quality or performance. According to the Building Research Establishment (BRE), the average lifespan of PVC-U windows is 35 years, which means PVC-U can offer up to 350 years of high performance, with minimal impact on the environment.
PVC-U windows have been given the highest rating possible in the BRE Green Guide to Specification, with an A rating for residential buildings and an A+ rating for commercial projects. The main Eurocell PVC-U profile systems now contain up-to 50% recycled material. To learn more about the sustainable useage of PVC-U, find out more in this Sustainable Usage of PVCU CPD Course.
Building Regulations Part L
All Eurocell window systems comply with Part L of the Building Regulations. The performance of our window systems can be improved significantly by using very low-emissivity glazing, gasfilled units, warm-edge spacer bars and other enhancements to meet the most stringent energy-efficiency requirements.
At Eurocell, we have BFRC-certified simulators who are fully qualified to calculate U-values and Window Energy Ratings (WERs) and to advise on regulatory compliance. Please contact our design department for more information.
Approved Document Q security regulations
Building Regulations Approved Document Q aims to prevent thieves breaking into a home through lower-level doors and windows. It applies to new-build properties, which must have windows and doors that are robust enough to resist physical attack by a burglar, and must be fitted with appropriate highsecurity hardware. Door and window products that have been certified to PAS 24 comply with all Document Q requirements – and any firm with ‘Secured by Design’ (SBD) New Homes 2014 certification will also meet the requirements.
