Emplas Transform Housing Project
The Emplas Commercial team was contracted to this housing project in Bristol. Fifteen tower blocks were specified for refurbishment, with a total of 6,863 window and doors installed. Emplas worked closely with Bristol City Council to work on the tower blocks in Eastville, Easton, Clifton, Redcliffe, Shirehampton and Ashton Gate.
For this Bristol project, Emplas recommended the use of the Profile 22 Optima System. This market-leading range offers excellent U-values and is manufactured to the highest standards. Due to its track record in other social housing projects, it was a clear choice.
Emplas manufactured 6,863 Optima products, including fully reversible, casement and tilt and turn windows. Single, composite and French Doors were also installed in the low-rise flats and communal areas.
Thermally Efficient Designs
The installation of the Profile 22 Optima system within these tower blocks will help lower the carbon footprint of the buildings. The multi-chambered uPVC frame works alongside the panes of glazing to trap in pockets of warm air. This will create a warm temperature throughout the year, even in the colder winter months.
Homeowners within these tower blocks can rely less upon their central heating for warmth. As the Profile 22 Windows retain heat throughout the year, it means their energy bills will reduce. Less energy consumption will be positive towards the local environment.
Within the Optima products that were installed at this Bristol commercial project, the finest locks have been fitted. The locking on the reversible windows allows the homeowners to enjoy excellent ventilation without putting the security of the apartment at risk. For homeowners living on the bottom floor in these built-up areas, it provides them peace of mind that no uninvited guests can gain access. The wide opening of the fully reversible window also offers a fire escape if required.
The Optima system manufactured by Emplas will provide lasting good-looks at these Bristol tower blocks. The frame will continue to retain its quality, even after constant exposure to the elements. It will never warp, bow, twist, rot, crack or flake. The only maintenance homeowners will have to carry out is to give the window an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth.
The elements will be kept out of these Bristol apartments. These windows achieve a weather performance of 2400pa for wind, 1500pa for water and 600pa for air. Even in the strongest winds, homeowners can have full peace of mind their apartment will not be blighted by cold draughts or damp.
