Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer Tube from Thermoseal Group, has been specified by specialist trade fabricator, Dungannon Window Company Limited and subsequently awarded the UK’s first-ever BFRC A++ rating for a PVC-U Vertical Slider.

This system has also achieved the lowest ever U-Value for the style at 1.0 W/m²K.

The new Eurosash superior triple 1.0 PVC-U window is triple glazed and utilises highest performance Thermobar Warm Edge Spacer in combination with Krypton gas. The achievement means that the ever-more popular vertical slider style can now be used without compromising energy efficiency, and the low U-Value will even allow the window to be used in Passive House buildings.

The outstanding thermal performance of Thermobar means it is ideal for achieving the best energy ratings in all types of window systems. It has a Bundesverband Flachglas thermal value of 0.14 W/mK and is Passive House approved and rated phA+ when used in conjunction with hot melt secondary sealant.

Sales Director at Thermoseal Group, Mark Hickox, said: “It has been an excellent year for us at Thermoseal Group and this A++ BFRC rating with Thermobar by Eurosash is yet another indication that our warm edge spacer tubes are best in the industry for many reasons.

“We are proud to offer a UK-engineered product which is supported by our own UK-based innovation centre pioneered by UK industry specialists to ensure that our products are industry-leading in performance, aesthetics and manufacturability.
