Window aids gothic revival

Grade II-listed Barnes Hospital has received a new lease of life as developer Henley Homes created the Barnes Village around it, with the help of Eurocell’s Modus flush sash casement window used in anthracite grey.

Alongside the 38 homes that are being constructed within the Victorian building, Henley is building a further 117 two-and four-bedroom townhouses in the hospital grounds.

Featuring a 75mm six-chamber profile system, the Modus range delivers the optimum energy efficiency performance and can achieve a U-value as low as 0.7 from a standard system using triple-glazed units.

The Modus casement, reversible and tilt and turn windows were among the first to achieve the ‘A++’ band in England and Wales for Window Energy Ratings (WERs) since the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) launched the new rating in May 2015. The ‘A++’ rating is only given to those windows an energy index value equal to or greater than +20.

Consisting of 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard, this range of doors and windows demonstrates a sustainable use of materials and has a smaller carbon footprint than products made or recycled outside of the UK.
