HWL Trade Frames has achieved an ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ rating for its fully reinforced Kömmerling C70 chamfered system. While many fabricators have achieved their ratings without reinforcement, HWL’s achievement will also extend to their foiled offerings too.
The Leeds based fabricator has built a reputation for high quality products supported by excellent customer support as Graham Howatson from the company explains: “We produce an outstanding product branded under the Definitive Collection and we are now able to offer the Definitive Energy Plus window. It’s fully reinforced and that means we can offer our customers an energy rated window in rosewood, golden oak, cream and black.”
The Window Energy Ratings scheme (WERs) is becoming ever more important for the glazing industry and HWL are becoming an important part of it. Alongside an ‘A’ rated window in the chamfered C70 suite, HWL also offer a ‘B’ and ‘C’ rated fully ovolo, Kömmerling Connoisseur window.
Their green credentials are also enhanced by the fact that their Kömmerling profile has 5 chambers and is extruded using Profine’s Greenline compound. This compound uses calcium-zinc based stabilisers and replaces the lead-based stabilisers that are still used by many other systems companies in the UK. This is an important element in offering ‘greener’ home improvement products to the consumer.
