JELD-WEN has reported a huge amount of interest in its
innovative new designs of windows and doors at this year's Ecobuild
show, held at ExCel in London.
One of the highlights of the show was JELD-WEN's Vintage
conservation window, which offers a high level of thermal
performance, but is almost indistinguishable from the traditional
single-glazed window styles found in period properties.
Specifiers and developers who visited the JELD-WEN stand recognised
how it would help to secure planning in conservation areas, as well
as providing an affordable solution to bespoke joinery
JELD-WEN also generated significant interest in its DreamVu™68
composite doorsets, which feature a robust 68mm thick design,
making them ideal for social housing refurbishments or new builds,
where very low U values are required. The
doorsets can achieve U values down to 0.7
W/m2K, which means they can meet the requirements of the
Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6 ("zero carbon"). Bringing
together the very best of its DreamVu™ collection, JELD-WEN also
showcased alongside its DreamVu™ 68 doorset, the innovative
DreamVu™ window and French patio door from the same collection.
Also on display from its windows range were JELD-WEN's popular
vertical sliding sash timber window and Hi Profile Combi window,
both of which are renowned for their aesthetics and high
Another great talking point for JELD-WEN this year was its
SecureFit™ flush timber entrance doorset, which is now available in
a 60 minute fire rated version (FD60). The doorset has
already being widely specified for social housing developments, as
it provides a high level of resistance to intruders, making it
suitable for use in high rise apartments or high density urban
JELD-WEN set itself apart from its competitors by releasing
details of its 60 year guarantee, which is available as an option
on its fully factory finished windows. This unbeatable
guarantee was very well received, particularly by social housing
providers, as it matches the predicted lifespan of new build
Georgina Campbell, Marketing Manager for JELD-WEN, said: "We had
a great deal of interest at the show in our new styles of windows,
as well as our external doorsets. All are designed to help
developers to meet the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable
Homes, as well as to significantly enhancing the aesthetics and
appeal of their properties."
The company's new range of internal moulded doors were also well
received at the show, as they represent one of the major
developments in moulded door styles for many years. The three
new styles: the Newark, Linea and Cube designs, each of which boast
attractive glazed options, display simple, contemporary styling
that will enhance and add value to a home. Each of the new moulded
internal doors is available with FD30 or FD60 fire door options,
making them ideal for commercial or public sector projects.
JELD-WEN also generated lots of interest in its exciting
Advance-line range of stunning American white oak veneer doors,
which are designed to add character and style to a property.
These high quality doors offer larger lippings (15mm) than most oak
doors, providing better trimming options. There are a wide
range of styles available including country, classic and
contemporary to meet project requirements. Internal doors are
also available with a 30 minute fire door option under the
BWF-CERTIFIRE scheme and all doors are supplied with full chain of
Georgina Campbell adds: "Developers and specifiers are looking
for windows and doors that combine aesthetics, performance and
positive environmental credentials and this is certainly what we
have to offer in our range."
