Many residents will be keeping warmer this winter in the Sir Robert Thomas Court development in Harpurhey, Manchester, run by Northwards Housing. This is thanks to the installation of high performance windows from Shepley, the Manchester based PVCu frame fabricator.
The windows have been developed to achieve an ‘A’ rating under the Window Energy Rating Scheme. They combine 70mm Veka Matrix profiles with triple glazed argon filled sealed units from Solaglas: 4mm SGG DIAMANT, 16mm SGG SWISSPACER V warm edge spacer bar, 4mm SGG DIAMANT, 16mm SGG SWISSPACER V, 4mm SGG PLANITHERM TOTAL 1.1.
To date, 300 of these high performance sealed units have been installed at Sir Robert Thomas Court as part of the Decent Homes refurbishment programme.
“SGG SWISSPACER® is proving to be of growing interest to our customers,” states Kathryn Dalgleish, Marketing Manager at Solaglas. “With the market starting to embrace WERS, more companies and occupants are appreciating the particular performance and aesthetic benefits of SGG SWISSPACER® units.
