DOORS&WINDOWS LINIAR GAINS PAS 23 AND 24 ACCREDITATION


Liniar, the energy efficient window system from HL Plastics Limited, has recently gained PAS 23 and 24 accreditation for its French doors.


The doors achieved PAS 23 (General Performance


Requirements) and PAS 24 (Enhanced Security Requirements) accreditation at the first attempt.


The achievement of PAS 23 ensures that the


French doors are sufficiently weather proof and well insulated. Worries about rising crime and burglary can be dispelled because Liniar’s French doors easily achieved the PAS 24 criteria. The instalment of Liniar French doors would help to ensure the safety and security of a home or business, subsequently offering peace of mind to property owners.


By preventing crime and protecting properties from harsh weather conditions, our French doors offer a better quality of life to home and business owners.


Furthermore, the use of well insulated weatherproof doors reduce energy bills and are far better for the environment; providing value for money and a responsible solution to growing fears about global warming and the lack of renewable energy sources.

GROWING WITHTHE GREEN MARKET FOR INSULATED GLASS SEALED PRODUCTS


UK leading Insulated Glass (IG) sealed unit component supplier, Thermoseal Group, has invested millions of pounds into manufacturing new energy efficient products to grow with the Green market and support customers in keeping up with changing guidelines for IG manufacture.


In this article for Clearview, SAMANTHA HILL,


Marketing Manager for the Thermoseal Group discusses the Green Growth from the Group’s perspective. In the past two years, Thermoseal Group has seen its sales revenue of spacer bar shift from a majority of Aluminium spacer bar to 50% warm edge - 50% growth of which is from 2010 to 2011.


Although, we genuinely believe that this dramatic increase in sales of warm edge spacer bar is due to the fact that we have manufactured the best warm edge spacer on the market, we all know that a contributing factor in this growth is the general industry shift towards achieving more energy efficient windows. And once we’ve all got over the initial teething problems of the Window Energy Rating System (WER) and how to maximise the promotional opportunity that comes with it, we can grow with the Green market and strive to achieve ever-more energy efficient windows.


We know about the Government’s targets for energy efficiency and the pressure that the UK is under to


reduce the carbon emissions from the energy used to heat our buildings. And although the ‘Green Deal’ has not yet been passed, we know it is a path that we must follow to keep up with the UK market.


At this point, I won’t regurgitate the guidelines


of the Green Deal which are readily available on the Internet, but from what I’ve read of the Government’s proposed ‘Energy Act’ and the GGF’s update relating to its efforts in ensuring that the ‘Green Deal’ extends to windows, its potential for the UK window industry is massive. It will provide a huge injection of cash into what is currently characterised as a mature market.


SOME CONCERNS ON SMES Of course, with any industry changes there will


always be some concerns. One particular concern is in terms of how SME’s will be able to get involved with Green Deal providers. As manufacturers, we can only put our faith in the GGF in lobbying to ensure that this scheme does not disadvantage our business. As active members working on behalf of a broad customer-base with many smaller customers’ interests to take into account, we will ensure that we support this notion.


As manufacturers, we intend to further embrace


the Green path being laid out for us and invest heavily in developing new and innovative energy

efficient components for IG manufacture. Having set up and innovation centre to develop Thermobar warm edge spacer bar and a whole range of warm edge accessories, we are now looking to work with a prestigious UK university to broaden our warm edge range and lead the way to pioneering ever- more energy efficient components. It is the Group’s intention to keep its business and its customers at the forefront of the UK market.
