Sustainable Design

VELFAC recognises 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.

Double and triple glazed windows bring attention to energy efficiency

Attention to energy efficiency

VELFAC windows use low-e double or triple-glazed units with argon filled cavities and soft low-e coatings as standard, and U-values as low as 0.8W/m²k are achievable.  We also provide excellent documentary evidence in the form of a data sheet, which details all individual U-values for each window unit, and an area weighted U-value for the project. The slim profile allows up to 15% more light to enter, providing better daylighting contributions.

Responsibly sourced materials

  • All VELFAC windows are made of FSC® certified pine.
  • All wood treatments are water based.
  • 2/3 of the aluminium used in VELFAC profiles is manufactured using renewable energy sources, and approx. 40% comes from recycled sources.
  • The VELFAC 200 manufacturing facilities are fully ISO9001 accredited.
  • VELFAC has an accredited Environmental Management and Audit System and are ISO14001 accredited.
