Eurocell will be inspiring visitors at this year’s Ecobuild with Modus®, the UK’s first fully integrated door and window system, available with three stunning sash design options.
All three sash options will be showcased on stand N150, including slim rebate and fully flush casement window versions, which provide a much wider range of design aesthetics and exceptional value for money compared to aluminium and timber products. In addition, there will be a standard sash casement model on display to illustrate how Modus® is an aesthetically superior solution to traditional PVC-U window systems. Windows will feature the new Modus® Architectural colour range, including Quartz Platinum and Asphalt metallic finishes and the contemporary Anteak woodgrain look.
Completing the line-up on the stand will be a reversible window, tilt & turn window, entrance door and French door – all manufactured from the single Modus® system.
Modus® offers no fewer than nine solid and woodgrain effect colours as standard and a further 40+ solid and woodgrain effect finishes to special order, in addition to the four options offered in the Architectural Range. Add that to the design aesthetics and product types available and the possibilities are infinite!
The innovative technical design of Modus® includes a triple-seal option to achieve superb thermal and air tightness performance without the need for esoteric, expensive glazing specifications. Its unique 75mm six-chamber profile system delivers optimum energy efficiency performance and is capable of achieving a U-value as low as 0.7 from a standard argon gas filled triple-glazed unit.
Environmental, social and economic sustainability were key design principles in the development of Modus®. The system utilises 50%* post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard and specifiers who demand the highest possible recycled material content, can select a 100% post-consumer recycled PVC-U version. What’s more, Modus® utilises cutting edge dual material extrusion technology (DMET) which layers post-consumer recycled and ‘virgin’ material simultaneously with high precision. The recycled material is then concentrated in the central core of the profiles, where it is completely invisible in an installed window or door. For extra peace of mind, Modus® is the first PVC-U window and door system to offer the reassurance of a 12-year guarantee**.
“Until now existing window profile systems in the UK were designed 10+ years ago, well before more stringent Building Regulations and thermal performance requirements came into force,” said Chris Coxon, Head of Marketing at Eurocell. “Visitors to our stand will be able to find out how Modus® is the only system designed to cost-effectively meet both current and future building regulation requirements up to the zero-carbon deadline and beyond – and with the amount of aesthetic choices on offer, there really is no need to specify any other windows and doors.”
