Materials Recycler of the Year Award
Eurocell won the Materials Recycler of the Year (Large) category at the National Recycling Awards 2012.
The award was presented by former England Rugby star and Strictly Come Dancing competitor Austin Healy.
Eurocell was judged the winner, in part, because of its £3m investment in enlarging its post-consumer PVCu recycling facility.
The facility is now the largest of its kind in the UK with a capacity to process up to 12,000 end-of-life window frames per week.
Eurocell was also commended for its Eurologik profile system that is made using post-consumer recycled PVCu, as well as customer-specific closed-loop recycling programmes.
Closed-loop recycling involves recycling end-of-life PVCu window frames to make new, energy efficient window products that are delivered back to the same construction sites from which they were removed.
Created for Apple and Android tablets, HomeFrame is the latest easy-to-use visualisation app from Eurocell. Designed to help contractors and installers, the app enables them to visualise Eurocell doors and windows products, styles and colours onto an image of the customer’s home. The app will improve trade customer conversion rates and help generate additional sales.
Eurocell has launched a new tablet app for the visualisation of home improvements entitled HomeFrame. The HomeFrame app showcases how new building products, including bi-fold doors, sash windows and tiled roof conservatories, will look as part of a property. HomeFrame can be used to re-size individual products in-situ and images can be skewed to give a more realistic appearance.
House-builders and specifiers welcome the new contemporary looking, thermally efficient Skypod, a new PVC-U skylight solution from Eurocell. Skypod adds height, volume and natural light to flat-roofed rooms such as extensions, and new build and conversion projects such as garages. It has a fixed 20 degree roof pitch, self-cleaning, temperature controlled glass in Blue, Neutral, Bronze and Clear, with a U-value of 1.0W/m²K achievable*.
Eurocell’s PVCu Aspect bi-fold door has achieved Secured by Design status. Aspect offers ultra slim frames and is available in a range of colours and woodgrain finishes. The bi-fold door system had to be certified to BS PAS 23-1: 1999 General performance requirements for door assemblies – Part 1: Single and Double leaf, external door assemblies to dwellings to meet the criteria of Secured by Design.
The CCIEM Renewable Technologies Award recognises Eurocell’s ability to recycle over 500,000 end-of-life PVC-U window frames per year and their sustainable manufacturing leadership. Eurocell has created the largest and most advanced PVC-U recycling facility of its kind in the UK.
