ecotech delivers a step-change in the use of recycled material and content in a new generation of sustainable and energy efficient PVC-U windows and doors.
We extrude recycled and virgin material simultaneously through a state of the art die’s to create a single profile. This locks and isolates recycled material away from areas of the frame visible to the end-user or which perform a structural role.
It allows us to utilise an efficient use of recycled content but to guarantee surface appearance, finish, quality and depth of gloss by using only virgin compound on profile walls. . The surface is perfect – no pits, no extrusion lines.
With an A+ and A++ WER BFRC ratings for material type from the Building Research Establishment in its Green Guide, it makes the ecotech profile among the UK’s most sustainable window and door system option.
ecotech Key features
- All profiles designed to be visible, or even touched following installation, are 100% prime quality virgin Calcium Organic stabilised Pvcu – totally free of lead giving complete peace of mind to the home owner.
- Environmental directives require all Pvcu producers to collect and incorporate their production waste into their products. In addition to window fabricator scrap, and even to recover the waste associated with old, previous generation Pvcu windows – ALL producers must be able to demonstrate this.
- ecotech extrusion technology, is currently almost unique in the UK, and limits this recaptured material to specific parts of our system ensuring we meet our obligations to reduce waste and to carbon emissions and to preserve our future.
