Going for gold

More than 200 Elite 70 casement windows and 32 French door sets were manufactured and installed by Spectus fabricator Highseal in a new 32-home development in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire.

The development incorporated Secured by Design features throughout, including police-preferred specification for the windows and doors.

The Elite 70 casement windows were manufactured in anthracite grey on white, and all windows and doors met Secured by Design compliance.

The five-chamber Elite 70 system delivers optimal thermal performance and is PAS24:2016 compliant as standard with Secured by Design options available. Large reinforcement chambers give optimum strength under wind loading and equal sash to frame overlaps across all products giving a consistent rebate, the company said.

The 32 new affordable homes were built on a disused sports complex and consist of 18 two-bedroom, 11 three-bedroom and three four-bedroom homes. The development forms part of North Lincolnshire Council’s commitment to build 240 new affordable homes at various sites in the region.

Humberside Police awarded the new Scunthorpe home development Secured by Design Gold status, in recognition of the achievement to design out crime within the development. It acknowledges the measures taken to reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour by improved layout, environmental design and the use of police-preferred specification products.
