uPVC PASSIVE AND HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOWS

Windows play a vital role in the new NZEB regulations (Nearly Zero Energy Buildings) and Passive House buildings. Homes designed to the Passive House standard are becoming increasingly popular to help conserve precious energy resources and optimise comfort for the homeowner. They are constructed using materials with excellent thermal performance, have exceptional airtightness and require very little energy. New and retrofitted homes built to this standard are more energy efficient, have greater levels of comfort in both winter and summer, with better air quality and are cheaper to heat than conventional dwellings.

uPVC Passive and High Performance Casement Windows from Senator are crafted using the EnergyPlus90 window system. EnergyPlus90 joins an elite band of window systems able to comply with the exacting Passive House standards. Many other systems feature messy and time-consuming foam-filled cavities to meet the requirements. EnergyPlus90 is unique in that its 9-chamber profile has been designed to meet the triple challenges of thermal efficiency, noise reduction and security.

CUSTOMISE YOUR PASSIVE OR HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOW

When you see a home fitted with Senator Windows, the first thing you notice is the homeowner’s choice of style, colour and finish. But there’s also a range of optional features beneath that sleek, elegant surface. You simply choose the combination of features that looks and functions best for each, individual room in your home.

 

INTEGRATED, MAINTENANCE-FREE BLINDS

ScreenLine® Integrated Blinds offer a great many benefits. To begin with, they offer the privacy, shade and protection from sunlight that you expect of a quality blind. The difference is that the blind is sandwiched between two panes of glass, protecting it from dust and weather, making it entirely maintenance-free. Excellent light and solar control characteristics mean you can vary the angle of your blinds as you want.

CASEMENT WINDOW

SAFETY CATCH IS SHOWN HERE ON A uPVC CASEMENT WINDOW
CHILD-PROOF SAFETY CATCH

Senator uPVC Passive and High Performance Windows can be fitted with a safety catch if specified. This safety catch allows you to open the window wide enough for ventilation but not wide enough to compromise security or child safety. In case of emergency, restrictors can be released as a means of escape. And as the restrictor is fitted between the sash and frame, there are no unsightly attachments visible on the main surfaces of the window.

COLOUR

Whatever the location and style of your home, there is a colour and finish to suit. You can choose exactly the look you want from a great range of colours. The stock range includes black woodgrain and a range of greys in woodgrain foil effect for the outside of your window with a white base on the inside. Cream woodgrain on a cream base is also available although any Renolit foil from the Senator range can be produced to suit individual requirements.
