Mcllhatton and Co Ltd achieves the industry’s first C rated casement window

Edgetech customer Mcllhatton and Co Ltd is the first company in the UK to achieve a British Fenestration Ratings Council ‘C’ rating under the Window Energy Rating Scheme on a casement window. Achieving the ‘C’ rating means Mcllhattons can carry the ‘Energy Efficiency Recommended’ swing tag logo, as already seen on fridges and other white goods. The ‘C’ rating was awarded for Mcllhattons standard casement window consisting of KBE externally glazed three chambered window system, Pilkington K glass, argon gas filled cavity and Edgetech’s Super Spacer® warm edge technology. “We want to be the best at what we do,” says Paddy Mcllhatton, Owner of Mcllhatton and Co Ltd. “We want to offer our customers the best product and this ‘C’ rating will certainly give them an additional edge. Offering windows with Super Spacer has already boosted sales with our production of sealed units increasing from 2500 to 4000 units a week. That’s why 100% of our units are now made with Super Spacer. And we’re confident our ‘C’ rating will help customers sell even more windows.”

Andy Jones, Sales Director and General Manager of Edgetech UK and Ireland, explains why he thinks Mcllhattons achievement is good news for the industry: “I’d like to congratulate Mcllhattons for being the first of many forward thinking companies that have approached Edgetech to find out how they can achieve a ‘C’ - and potentially higher - rating. The industry needs ambitious companies like Mcllhattons to drive it forward, and I’m thrilled Edgetech can help more companies do the same, and at no extra cost. We believe the Window Energy Rating Scheme is the future of the industry so we’re pleased to see more companies take on the scheme to further differentiate themselves.”
