In June, trade fabricator Frame Fast (UK) Ltd became the first UK company to manufacture Eurocell’s groundbreaking new modus® system. Five months on, Nigel Leivers, Frame Fast’s Sales Director, says, “We were confident the revolutionary flush system would open up new opportunities for us and our customers. That’s already proving to be the case: we’ve won a big new project as a result of what it has to offer and feedback from our customer base has been extremely positive too.”
modus® is the UK’s first fully integrated system with standard, slim rebate and fully flush options, meaning it’s a genuine alternative to aluminium and timber products.
It’s being billed as a game changer and it isn’t hard to see why. It offers everything the market is looking for: looks, performance, sustainability and value for money, not to mention being the first leading system to offer a 12-year guarantee.
It has clean, contemporary looks and slimmer sightlines and is available in a range of nine standard colours, plus over 40 special order options, making it versatile and flexible. The 75mm system covers casement windows, reversible windows, tilt & turn windows, entrance doors, french doors and composite doors.
The window is more energy efficient than its timber or aluminium equivalents and the reversible option is the most energy efficient on the market. A tripleseal option provides superb thermal performance and air tightness, so U-values as low as 0.7 can be achieved – exceeding Passivhaus standards. It also delivers exceptional triple glazing solutions.
The commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in its use of 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard and the 100% recycled PVC-U option that is available on request. Innovative dual material extrusion technology (DMET) ensures fast, efficient use of post-consumer PVC-U in the production process and because it’s being manufactured and recycled by Frame Fast in the UK, modus® has a lower carbon footprint than many profiles made or recycled overseas.
Nigel concludes, “We were delighted to be the first UK manufacturers of modus®. The flush option is already opening doors for us and is offering great possibilities for our customers who are always looking for something new and innovative for their portfolios. In modus® they’ve got a product that sets the bar high and is blazing a trail for others to follow.”
