As a leading UK manufacturer,we’re committed to working sustainably and helping to create better buildings that are fit for 21st century needs.
The use (and reuse) of sustainable materials
Our systems use PVC and aluminium, both considered sustainable materials thanks to their long lifespan and ability to be easily recycled. In fact, PVC-U products last for over 40 years and can be recycled up to ten times, while aluminium is considered almost endlessly recyclable.
Many of our products contain an amount of recycled material. We’re working on ways to take this further with additional capability to reclaim PVC building materials at the end of their life, allowing us to increase the proportion of recycled material in our products.
We’re part of the VinylPlus® Product Label scheme, so you can check our credentials for manufacturing sustainable and high performance PVC-U products – just look for the VinylPlus logo.
Creating greener homes
Our window and door systems help to build more environmentally friendly homes, achieving A and A+ ratings for energy efficiency, cutting your carbon emissions. We’re always looking for ways to enhance our offering, with innovations such as RCM thermal inserts – which are made from 100% recycled PVC-U and provide a cost-effective way to improve insulation – and AEROFRAME technology to increase the insulation of our frames.
Our working practices
Thinking sustainably impacts everything we do as a modern business. This is reflected in our environmental policies for responsible sourcing of materials and the way in which we operate our facilities, which come with ISO accreditation to prove we take our responsibilities seriously.
Made in the UK, for the UK market
Our systems are designed and manufactured in the UK. Our state-of-the-art facilities mean we can work efficiently, keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible.
