Installation specialists Portico has fitted more than 100 of Pilkington’s high-spec insulating glass units (IGUs) at an exclusive, new build apartment development in Essex for Weston Homes.

Pilkington energiKare Advantage units were specified for their energy-efficient properties, which see the units achieve a centre pane U-value of just 0.9 W/m2k, helping Weston Homes exceed its target U-value of 1.2 W/m2k.  

Installed into 86 windows and 24 patio doors within the five-story development, the energiKare IGUs minimise heat loss and allow more of the sun’s energy to enter the property.

Energy-efficient specification

Pilkington worked in collaboration windows and doors manufacturer Emplas on the project, which is part of the high-end Highbanks scheme by Weston Homes in Southend-on-Sea. 

Ryan Johnson, managing director at Emplas, commented: “The new build sector has been focussed on improved energy efficiency for a long time and the doors and windows we’re supplying into it are being specified to increasing levels of performance. 

We have a longstanding relationship with Pilkington and through continued collaboration we have been able to supply a highly competitive window and door offer into the new build sector.”
