Epwin Group’s Green Deal ’Tracker’
PVC-U door and window extruder and manufacturer, Epwin Group, has launched an online Green Deal ’Tracker’, aiming to offer guidance on the implications of the recent Green Deal for window fabricators and installers.
Scheduled to come into effect in October 2012, the Green Deal aims to cut the UK housing stock’s carbon footprint.
The Government plans to offer loans of up to £10,000 to encourage householders to install energy-saving home improvements, with repayments made by reduced electricity bills.
Epwin Group’s Green Deal hub has been created to outline how the scheme works, detailing delivery deadlines and advising on potential pitfalls.
The chairman of Epwin Group, Jim Rawson has been awarded with the Derek Bonnard Award for Excellence at the G13 Awards in recognition of his contribution to the fenestration industry.
Profile 22 has introduced a new, energy efficient fully reversible window that has been designed for use on both medium and high rise applications. The easy to clean window boasts a U-value of 0.8 and an A rating under the Window Energy Ratings (WER) initiative. It has a 180° pivot action and can incorporate triple seals in order to maximise thermal performance.
Doors, windows and conservatories supplier, Emplas, is now benefitting from a new website which has been designed and developed as part of the marketing support offered by its profile supplier, Profile 22. The new website features comprehensive product information, latest news, information on the Government’s Green Deal and case studies and provides access to Emplas’ technical bulletins and product literature.
A new PVCu vertical sliding sash window has joined the Profile 22 stand at The Building Centre on London’s Store Street. The new window combines the appearance of a traditional sash window with the benefits of thermally efficient modern materials. It has a achieved a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A and BES:6001, meaning it is suitable for use in conservation and environmentally conscious projects.
Select Windows, which fabricates its PVCu windows and doors using the Profile 22 system, has gained PAS: 2030. This national accreditation means that the company is one of the first in its field to be recognised as a Green Deal Installer. The family owned company endured the British Standards Institution’s rigorous training and assessment programme to attain the PAS: 2030 certificate.
