SolarthermPlus® Tilt & Turn Windows
With a top level recognition that thermal efficiency of properties in the UK needs to improve significantly going forward, the evolution of fenestration should be inevitable, especially when a Fabric First approach is adopted. Sidey is amongst the first to recognise that just because windows and doors need to deliver greater thermal performance, specifiers and developers will not lose sight of the need for value for money and cost effectiveness.
SolarthermPlusŪ has been developed to deliver on all fronts. Whole window u-values down as low as 0.7W/mēK without the need for expensive krypton gas filling! The system has been designed to cope with the 50% increase in glass weight that triple glazing brings. In fact, SolarthermPlusŪ delivers bigger casement sash sizes than standard systems on the market, meaning no compromise for designers!
Glass specifications will be tailored to meet your projects u-value requirements ensuring optimal performance thermally as well as acoustically.
SolarthermPlusŪ is as at home in refurbished properties as it is in new build. The industry leading performance of SolarthermPlusŪ spans weather, security and energy efficiency.
