XtremeDoor chosen for flagship decarbonisation scheme
Saffron Housing’s first wave of a government-led Social Housing Decarbonisation scheme saw 126 homes retrofitted with energy-saving upgrades, including new windows, doors, solar panels, insulation and air source heat pumps in order to reduce their carbon footprint and help residents save on energy costs.
In some homes, where additional measures were needed in order to improve the effectiveness of the heat pumps, new energy-efficient doors were needed. Vista’s XtremeDoor composite doors boast a U-Value of just 0.87 W/m2k.
XtremeDoor is said to be one of the highest performing composite doors on the market. Thanks to a high-density, multi-layered foam core that helps to retain heat, they have been proven to be up to more than 19% more efficient than other composite doors.
According to Vista, high-quality PVC-U edge-banding also offers ‘extreme levels’ of weatherproofing.
Ian Smith, Vista’s sales and marketing manager, commented: “We are incredibly proud to see our XtremeDoor composites used in Saffron Housing Trust’s flagship scheme, and to have them featured on Sky News’ the Climate Show is a fantastic recognition of their exceptional quality and energy-saving capabilities.
“At Vista, we recognise the significance and urgency of reducing carbon emissions and transitioning towards more sustainable living – by offering doors with superior U-Values, we’re proud to contribute towards the government’s decarbonisation goals.
“Being featured on Sky News further highlights the importance of our contribution to this cause, and motivates us to continue innovating and developing products that not only meet, but exceed energy-saving standards.”
