  • Warmer

    A Series 50 single hinged unit will reduce heat loss by up to 50% using standard glass and up to 65% with a thermally efficient glass (low-E). Further improvements are possible using sealed glass units that create triple glazing. High performance compression seals will almost eliminate drafts and ensure much greater comfort near the window. 

    The effectiveness of the insulation is measured by U-values, the lower the figure the better the insulation.

    Quieter

    A Series 50 single hinged unit set 100mm apart from the existing window will reduce noise levels well above 40dB (decibels) with higher figures achieved using thicker glass. The twin compression seals remain very effective over long periods.

    Safer

    The Series 50 unit has considerable inbuilt strengths. Manual attack tests have been conducted by the Loss Prevention Certification Board using a range of tools to attack both frame and glass over defined periods of time. Resistance against the effects of a blast has been assessed on a specialist Range using a simulated car bomb at a distance of 25m.
