Profile 22’s Flush Tilt and Turn windows have been 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.
Given the nature of student accommodation, and the building’s aesthetics, 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 neatly positioned inside the frame of the window to create an elegant and sleek ‘flush’ appearance that delivers the appearance of aluminium, especially when complemented with a RAL 7016 smooth foil finish on white.
The window has a maximum opening size of 1450 x 2300mm and offers exceptional performance because it 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.
The combination of a busy city centre site and the Structural Steel Framing System (SFS) construction of the build were complex, but Kingfisher proved more than able to cope. The company’s team is experienced in working closely with other on-site teams to ensure installation runs smoothly and on schedule. As a result, installation was completed on time and on budget.
Jonny Reynolds, Technical Director at Kingfisher Windows said: “It’s a fantastic building. It was the first time Kingfisher had worked with the main contractor Clegg Construction on a contract, but Jonny says the quality of the relationship and the Profile 22 product has already led to further contracts being agreed with the contractor. It’s a clear indication of what Profile 22’s products and the Approved Windows Contractor scheme has to offer.”
Profile 22 is an Epwin Windows Systems brand.
