Advanced performance thermally efficient windows, featuring frames manufactured solely from recycled PVC-U, have been supplied to a Birmingham sheltered housing scheme.
Manufactured by Framexpress and installed by lead contractor, Berben Group, 128 recycled windows were specified by Yardley Great Trust at its Foliot Fields site, a supported living scheme for older people.
Made using the new recycled low carbon RECO22 window framing system from Profile 22, the carbon footprint of the extruded window profile is just six per cent of that manufactured using virgin material.

Lynn Bailey, housing manager, Yardley Great Trust, said: “We try and instil a positive approach to sustainability in all of our activity from supporting residents in reducing waste to working with local suppliers and the specification, wherever possible,
of products that we feel fit with our own commitments to the environment.”
