ECO-FRIENDLY WINDOWS AND DOORS

At VELFAC, we recognise the need to limit our impact on the environment, and this is reflected in the choice of material suppliers and manufacturing processes that are employed to produce our eco-friendly windows and doors.

Energy efficient

  • VELFAC windows use low-e glazed units with argon filled cavities and low-e coatings as standard, and U-values as low as 0.80 W/m²K are achievable. We also provide documentary evidence in the form of a data sheet, detailing individual U-values for each window unit, and an area weighted U-value for every project.

  • The VELFAC 54mm frame profile means that we use less wood and aluminium in the frame components than some of our competitors, and the slim sightlines allow up to 15% more light to enter the interior, providing a better daylight contribution.

Responsibly sourced materials

  • All wood comes from sustainable sources and is FSC® certified
  • All wood treatments are water based
  • A VELFAC window unit is 93% re-usable
  • Approximately 50% of the aluminium used to produce VELFAC profiles comes from recycled sources, and 95% is produced using hydro-electricity. VELFAC suppliers have accredited Environmental Management and Audit Systems and are ISO14001 accredited.
  • VELFAC glass suppliers run detailed environmental management systems.
