New student accommodation

Profile 22’s Flush Tilt and Turn windows were used in the construction of flats for 244 students at the University of Derby.

The design, manufacture and installation of the windows on the project was undertaken by Profile 22 approved window contractor Kingfisher Windows.

The Flush Tilt and Turn Window from Profile 22 was the best choice for optimum ventilation and maximisation of space. The windows have a sash that is positioned inside the frame of the window to create a flush appearance that resembles aluminium, especially with a RAL 7016 smooth foil finish on white.

The window has a maximum opening size of 1,450mm x 2,300mm, has an air permeability value of 600Pa, a water tightness value of 600Pa, and a wind resistance value of 2400Pa. The window is Secured by Design accredited and meets PAS24:2016 standards for security.

Other key elements in the specification of the windows for Agard Court were the use of acoustic glazing on road elevations and the use of clear solar control glazing on south facing elevations.
