‘Creature comforts’: aluplast Ideal 70 specified by Edinburgh Zoo
The Ideal 70 system from aluplast has been specified as part of a refurbishment project at Edinburgh’s world renowned zoo.
Manufactured in Scotland, with installation carried out by Dimension, the windows, doors and escape doors, were fitted as part of a refurbishment of Penguins Café.
The order came in from the customer. It was a bit of a coup – you would normally expect a high profile job like this to be picked up by a big retailer because of the exposure that it carries.
aluplast supplied the Ideal 70, with a U-Value of 1.4W/m2k with Planitherm toughened externally laminated, argon filled units with a 18mm silver spacer. The feedback from job has been very positive.
Specifically developed and designed for the UK market, the German-engineered Ideal 70 and ecotech Ideal 70 systems draw down on aluplast’s investment in research and development, to offer one of the industry’s most energy efficient five chamber PVC-U profiles.
It features an optimum 44mm flush triple-glazed beading option, which contributes to up to a WER A++ rating. Fully integrated hardware and reinforcement, also make it a proven Part Q, PAS24:2012 and Secured by Design system.
The Ideal 70 is a great system and versatile in both domestic and commercial application.
