Leading manufacturer of high performance PVC window and door profiles, Spectus Window Systems, has further fortified its service for fabricators with the addition of another windows energy rating (WER) simulator to its team.
Greg Glynn, who is based at the company’s Cheshire head office, has been approved by the British Fenestration Ratings Council (BFRC) as an official WER simulator to assist fabricators in achieving their customers’ specific requirements. An assessment report is then produced, which fabricators can use to obtain WER certification from the BFRC quickly and easily.
Spectus Window Systems’ sales and marketing director, David Oliver, explains why growing the company’s WER simulator team was so important: “From the point of view of the end-user, WERs represent a clear and understandable system for ranking products, allowing meaningful comparisons to be made, and helping eco-conscious consumers make a purchasing decision. WERs also provide reassurance of quality standards, which makes them a useful marketing tool for fabricators and installers, who can use them to differentiate between products.”
The announcement follows Spectus Window Systems’ launch of EcoSpec last month, a product with post-consumer and post-industrial recycled PVC in the heart of the profile. This brought an additional selling point to fabricators and installers faced with environmentally-conscientious specifiers across the public and private sectors, an offering that has been further enhanced by the company’s strong WER simulator division.
David concludes: “The launch of EcoSpec proved to the industry that it is possible to have performance, aesthetics, environmental credentials and an impressive WER in a single product. This ‘have it all, no compromises’ attitude has been the catalyst for us reinforcing our WER simulator team; we want to make it as straightforward as possible for our fabricators to produce beautiful, high-performance window products that meet, if not exceed, UK WER requirements - and giving fabricators easy access to an additional qualified WER simulator is another way we are able to achieve this.”
