November 2013 - BPF Launch '12 Good Reasons to Specify PVC Products' Leaflet

Euroglaze is pleased to offer this presentation which provides 12 good reasons why PVC is hard to beat as a resource-efficient material when its credentials are fairly evaluated. We have extracted the first six below and the PDF can be downloaded here. BPF Launch '12 Good Reasons to Specify PVC Products

PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride but is often referred to just as "vinyl" (as in vinyl records or vinyl flooring). PVC is a thermoplastic which means it can be re-melted and is therefore recyclable. Unlike other thermoplastics which are entirely derived from oil, PVC is made from 57% salt which gives it some unique technical properties and helps it deliver unbeatable value.

March 2013 - Expansion Project for Euroglaze For Growth in 2013

Euroglaze are preparing for a busy year in 2013 by converting over 25,000 square feet of inert unused land within our premises. Expansion Project for Euroglaze

Constantly striving to be lean and maximise our resources we are undertaking a project to create a secure profile storage facility which will run alongside the manufacturing unit. Due to strong demand we also require an expanded finished goods area which is also part of the project.

The project will see ground works, draining, enclosures, security systems and a hard standing constructed. The closing of an older smaller storage area which was offsite also forms a component of the works. The project is expected to be complete by the end of March 2013 allowing for a doubling of onsite storage space for both profiles and finished goods. Euroglaze has a long history of inward investment projects and this is the first of two during the year aimed at becoming more efficient and self-sufficient within our manufacturing facility.

February 2013 - WER Documentation & Window Energy Ratings System

Euroglaze are pleased to announce that our customers can have access to an automated WER Documentation system by logging into the customer login section. WER Documentation & Window Energy Ratings System

As you know the BFRC Scheme is the UK's national system for rating the energy efficiency of windows and is recognised within the Building Regulations as a method to show compliance for your replacement windows installation.

With carbon emissions high on the global agenda and the current high cost of fuel, consumers are looking for ways to make their homes more energy efficient. When you get a product rated with the BFRC you will be given a unique label. As a Trade Customer we have a system which will do the WER Documentation process for you and relieve you of the administrative burden.

Euroglaze offer a WER Documentation System to our Trade Accounts as an added value service which automates the Window Energy Rating System. This label will display the following information:

  • The rating level A, B, C, D, E, F & G
  • The energy rating e.g. 4kWh/(m²·y) in this example the product will lose 4 kilowatt hours per square metre per year
  • The window U value e.g. 1.5W/(m²·K)
  • The effective heat loss due to air penetration as L e.g. 0.02 W/(m²·K)
  • The solar heat gain e.g. g=0.41
