TAKE THE CHALLENGE » » As the WarmCore team gears up for the FIT Show, they’re asking fabricators and installers to take part in the WarmCore Challenge by putting their current aluminium window or door system to the test. WarmCore windows and doors, the thermally efficient aluminium profile systems from the Synseal Group, are designed around a 65mm multi-chambered core. The WarmCore window system has been tested to achieve U-values as low as U1.3 double glazed and U0.8 triple glazed. In addition, the WarmCore team has announced that the new slim vent SV 54 M AY 2 01 7 window can achieve the same U-values as the standard sash and is available triple glazed. Head of Research and Development, Phil Parry, said: “This is our challenge: if your current aluminium system doesn’t achieve double glazed U-values of U1.3 for windows and U1.4 for doors; if you aren’t able to triple glaze your slim vent sashes; if an aluminium flush sash isn’t available to you; if you can’t achieve dual colour easily; if you aren’t offered PAS24 compliant products as standard; or even if you can’t find published acoustic data for your current system; then visit us at Stand R15 at the FIT Show and find out what WarmCore is all about.” www.synseal.com
