Eurocell‘s Modus flush sash casement window provided the ideal solution for a Grade II listed French Gothic hospital which has been transformed into hundreds of homes.

The Barnes Hospital, close to the village of Cheadle in Greater Manchester, was originally built in 1875 but was closed in 1999 and left to deteriorate. Developer Henley Homes is now creating the Barnes Village around it, consisting of 38 homes within the Victorian building and a further 117 two and four bedroom townhouses in the hospital grounds.

Being based near the A34 and close to the M60 and M56 means traffic can be heard from the site, therefore making noise attenuation a key consideration. Modus’ multi-chamber profile aids the window’s acoustic performance with optimum energy efficiency performance and the ability to achieve a U-value as low as 0.7.

The modus casement, reversible and tilt and turn windows achieve an ‘A++’ band in England and Wales for Window Energy Ratings – given to windows with an energy index value equal to or greater than +20. 

Eurocell is committed to sustainability, employing dual material extrusion technology that layers used and new materials, so the recycled material is concentrated in the central core of the profiles where it cannot be seen.

The Modus system is available in nine solid and woodgrain effect colours, all of which are available with white internal finishes. A further range of over 25 solid and woodgrain effect finishes is available to special order, including colour both sides.
