has launched the latest version of its specification guide, developed to support architects and specifiers find their way through the sometimes complex process of window and door specification.
Also featuring straightforward information and support on the specification of curtain walling, the guide includes everything from the specification of hardware through to compliance with building regulations and energy efficiency.
This includes details on its low carbon recycled window offering RECO22 which became the first window system to secure a dedicated A+ rating across all domestic applications in February this year. With a carbon footprint of extruded profile of just six per cent of that manufactured using virgin material, a triple glazed option means that it achieves a u-value as low as 0.8 W/m2K.
Andrew Reid, commercial development director, Profile 22
, said: “Technology, as in many industries, is moving exceptionally quickly in the window and door sector. Nine or 10 years ago PVC-U wasn’t widely recycled, now we’re able to offer a fully recycled, low carbon in manufacture and thermally efficient and by implication low carbon in life, product range.
“As one of a number of product types specifiers and architects have to get their heads around it can be very difficult to stay abreast of the latest technology, let alone specify the right mix of that technology for their project. The specification guide from Profile 22
is about simplifying that process.”
The specification guide also details the full specification support offered by Profile 22
’s in-house technical team including training and specification programmes plus how to find a commercial window contractor through the Profile 22
Approved Window Contractor scheme.
