The WarmCore SV (slim vent) window has successfully been tested to meet the requirements of PAS 24:2016. This enhanced security standard means that the product also meets the requirements of Approved Document Q and Secured by Design.
The slim vent window, which is available as both a standard and flush casement, is 18% slimmer than the standard WarmCore casement window and offers the advantage of reduced sightlines but with the same impressive U-values of 1.3W/m²K double glazed and just 0.8 W/m²K with triple glazing.
Phil Parry, Head of R&D at Synseal Group, said:
“The WarmCore SV window now joins the rest of the WarmCore window range in achieving PAS 24 accreditation. This means we can offer our customers a comprehensive suite of windows in standard or slim vent, as both conventional and flush casement, in addition to our tilt & turn window offer.
“We designed the WarmCore SV window to have the optimal balance of slim sightlines without compromising the thermal benefits that WarmCore customers expect – all available at the same price as our standard sized sash. Customer response to the slimmer product has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re looking forward to seeing the SV window become more highly specified in commercial and new build developments now it has achieved PAS 24 and Secured by Design status.
“Now that we are also manufacturing WarmCore SV in-house, we will be able to offer the product to our fabricator customers who don’t have the capacity to manufacture themselves, but are reliant on a consistent supply chain of our WarmCore products to meet growing demand for thermally efficient aluminium products.”
