Improvements to your home that will add style, luxury and that now include superb thermal qualities that surpass all energy saving requirements. Working towards a cleaner environment, adding Ultimate energy saving windows and doors to your home will give you significant savings on fuel bills and home maintenance whilst helping to reduce CO2 emissions and the energy lost from your home.
The Ultimate Energy Window
As part of the Governments overall initiative to reduce the levels of carbon dioxide emissions, they have put controls in place to reduce the energy lost from domestic dwellings. Window heat loss can account for up to 30% of the total heat loss from a house. Therefore replacement windows are now energy rated which will help to reduce harmful CO2 emissions and help cut the cost of heating bills.
Ultimate window profiles along with the glass sealed unit specification are fed into a computerised simulation test to measure:-
1) Solar heat gain.
2) Thermal losses.
3) Air losses.
Based on the results, windows are then rated from A-G with A-Rating being the most thermally efficient. The New Ultimate Energy Saving Window surpassed all tests and achieved one of the industries highest ratings with an A+8 certification.
Designed to Suit
All Ultimate window and door profiles are produced 70mm in depth, often the same depth as conventional wooden windows. Because of this, Ultimate frames are more likely to provide a direct replacement for the windows that have been removed and will refit up against existing plaster lines for a neater finish.
Internal and external gaskets are fused to all sections which will prevent the seals shrinking over time. A 9mm ‘flipper’ seal compresses against the glass sealed unit to ensure ultimate weather protection. The seal remains ‘in-line’ with the profiles to enhance the finished appearance.
Built to Last
Manufactured from 3mm Grade-A PVC-u, Ultimate profiles guarantee a consistent, superb surface finish. An internally sloped surface directs any water penetration away from the window via a built-in drainage route.
