Emplas, in partnership with Pilkington and new build window installation specialist Portico, has supplied IGU units with a high performance 0.9W/m2K into a high-end Essex new build development.

The Highbanks development in Southend-on-Sea, was completed by developer Weston Homes in the early summer.It includes the redevelopment of Essex House, a 12-storey landmark former office development into 75 exclusive apartments and a five storey, 22-apartment new build development.Portico, was appointed by Weston Homes to supply 86 windows and 24 patio doors into the new build element of the scheme, with a requirement for an overall installed unit value of 1.2W/m2K.

Jason Campbell, Commercial Manager, Portico, said: “Highbanks is a high-end development, with the new build site featuring a combination of traditional brickwork and zinc cladding in a five-storey elevation.“As a high-end development, the customer Weston Homes, set a high performance window and door specification with an installed frame u-value of just 1.2W/m2K.This was achieved by Emplas as our window and door supplier using a unit from Pilkington with a u-value of just 0.9W/m2K.”

These feature a Pilkington 4mm Optitherm S1 Plus, argon filled unit, with 16mm black Swiss Spacer and 4mm KOW Surface 4 and TUF coatings where required.

Ryan Johnson, Managing Director, Emplas said that the solution reflected the established partnership Emplas now enjoyed with Pilkington, adding that its manufacture of Profile 22’s new Optima system, extended the fabricator’s energy efficient window and door range still further.

He said: “The new build sector has been focussed on energy efficiency for a long time and the doors and windows that we and our customers are supplying into it are being specified to increasing levels of performance.

“Optima is a completely new six chamber thermally efficient system, which with a 44mm beading option, achieves a u-values as low as 0.8W/m2K.

“This and the innovation that Pilkington is constantly delivering as our IGU partner, means that we can supply a highly competitive window and door offer into the new build sector.”

Replacing Profile 22’s FI and FS 70mm systems, Optima features sculptured, chamfered and flush casement systems built around a thermally efficient six chamber outer frame and five chamber sash.

It includes a choice of 24mm and 28mm double, and 36mm, 40mm and 44mm triple-glazed beading options. This means that it comfortably achieves u-values as low as 0.8W/m2K on triple-glazed units.
