SolarthermPlus = Best Value Solutions

Posted: April 18, 2011

The Government stipulates that by 2016 (2013 for the social sector) all new homes will be zero carbon rated (code level 6). To achieve that standard all windows are required to have up to U-values of 0.7w/m2k and doors require a U-value of 0.8W/m2K or less.

So how can this be achieved within budget? Sidey Ltd has responded to demand from the industry for such products by developing a SolarthermPlus range that offers best value solutions.

Steve Hardy, Sidey’s Commercial Sales Director explains – “Our SolarthermPlus range consists of smart sashes, superior composite doorsets, curtain walling, fire doors, KitFix® System for factory fitted windows & doors and Scratchgard® our unique glass protection system. All of which offer a unique, revolutionary opportunity to inexpensively enhance building performance and meet code for sustainable homes levels 3, 4, 5 & 6 and ‘retrofit for the future’ projects.

“Innovation is something that is sadly lacking when it comes to fenestration in the UK. Same old products being stretched this way and that to meet significantly changing requirements. What about integrating photovoltaic’s into ‘dead spaces’ in your curtain walling and integrating blinds into your windows for solar shading whilst protecting them from damage from enthusiastic students. Then there are highly robust colour options that are significantly more cost competitive than powder coated aluminum, whilst achieving hugely better u-values or if it has to be aluminum, then aluminum windows and curtain walling that can achieve a u-value as low as 0.8 and 1.0 W/m²K respectively.

“The SolarthermPlus range shows our commitment to innovation and the future of the industry. By developing new product innovations that offer competitive solutions to increasingly onerous demands for thermal efficiency we can help to secure our customers future”.

Sidey’s SolarthermPlus range is available now and offers some of the lowest U-values in the industry – 0.7w/m2k, superior acoustic performance, cost effective solar shading, RAL colour, BS colour and woodgrain finishes and re-glazing options to mention a few.
