THERMAL PERFORMANCE MEETS SUSTAINABILITY AT HOUSING 2008

JELD-WEN, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of doors, windows and stairs to the public sector, will reveal its complete range of energy efficient external doors, stylish and hardwearing internal doors, along with their range of sustainable timber windows at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s show Housing 2008. Also available is their chain of custody certified timber stairs, which are being widely specified by local authorities and housing associations.

New at this years show will be JELD-WEN’s new Ultra Plus A-rated Stormsure window, which is perfect for maximising energy efficiency, helping tenants to control the costs of rising fuel bills. As the window is manufactured from PEFC Chain of Custody certified timber, it offers public sector specifiers an excellent environmental choice. JELD-WEN will also be displaying its Hi-Profile Combi window, which is renowned for its high performance and low U-value, with total flexibility in design and configuration, making it perfect for multi-occupancy buildings. JELD-WEN’s windows are available to meet the Secured by Design specification.

JELD-WEN will also be revealing its latest designs as part of its composite doors range. The company’s composite doors are widely used by social housing providers throughout the UK because of their robust construction, high security and low maintenance. JELD-WEN’s composite doorsets offer some of the best thermal properties available on the market and can also be specified to meet Secured by Design requirements. JELD-WEN also offers a resident consultation and liaison service and manages the process to ensure greater tenant satisfaction.

Chris Moyes, Public Sector Manager for JELD-WEN, explains: “This year we are showing how important it is not just to be able to offer the right product, but that it is the support and backup that really makes the difference. We provide a complete service from initial consultation to tenant liaison, planning of repairs, installation and after-care. Everything is taken care of, so the housing provider is assured of greater tenant satisfaction and a product that is built to last.”

For new build or refurbishment work, JELD-WEN also offers a wide range of paint grade, veneered and moulded doors, which are ideally suited to social housing situations. These internal doors include a wide choice of robust, aesthetically pleasing and affordable options, with many styles available as fire doors.

JELD-WEN will be revealing all its latest new products in its new Public Sector Brochure and its new Technical Guide to Timber Windows, also launched at the show.

In addition, JELD-WEN will be showcasing its latest designs for common flights of timber stairs, which are fully compliant with all relevant British Standards and are suitable for use in multi-occupancy dwellings.

“Energy efficiency is a major part of our offering and we will be demonstrating how our high specification doorsets and timber windows offer low maintenance and excellent thermal performance,” adds Chris Moyes. “Sustainability is a major part of our range and is one of the main reasons why we use only certified timbers from well managed forests across our windows range.”

All JELD-WEN’s windows are independently certified under the rules of the British Woodworking Federation’s Timber Windows Accreditation (TWA) Scheme and are BSI Kitemarked.
