Warm and secure

More than 300 Optima windows from Profile 22 were installed in a private housing development in Chipping near Preston in Lancashire.

The project specified flush casement windows in 7016 anthracite on white, which would provide a classic heritage appearance.

The windows needed to have a U-value of 1.4W/m²K for thermal efficiency and meet PAS24:2016 and Secured by Design requirements so they would exceed the security standards of Document Q of the Building Regulations.

The fabrication and installation contract was carried out by Profile 22 approved contractor Kingfisher Windows, which is used to working with new-build developers and on projects involving tight timescales on busy construction sites. It meant that the windows were fabricated and installed smoothly and efficiently.

Jonny Reynolds of Kingfisher Windows said: “The development is in keeping with the local surroundings without compromising on thermal efficiency or security. We are very pleased with the results.”
