Rapid Supplies Triple-Glazing To Taylor Wimpey

Taylor Wimpey has a housing development in Sunderland where only triple glazing has been specified – and Eurocell fabricator, Rapid PVCu, has secured the supply job.

Eurocell’s Modus windows system has been specified for the Herrington View residential scheme in Penshaw.

Rapid PVCu (which is based in Doncaster) is a new-build specialist and has worked with Eurocell and its PVC-U building products for 14 years.


Recycled content

Eurocell’s ‘Future Homes Ready’ Modus window system is made from 50% average post-consumer recycled PVC-U and is manufactured using dual material extrusion technology.

With U-values as low as 0.86, the triple glazed windows will reduce carbon emissions, use less energy to heat the homes and present higher levels of security.

Eurocell has been working closely with national housebuilders to enable them to achieve energy efficiency and carbon reduction targets that meet the Future Homes Standard.


The future

Martin Benn, the head of new build at Eurocell says: “Working collaboratively with housebuilders is something we really value at Eurocell. This project shows the Modus system can ensure housebuilders will meet the Future Homes Standard requirements that will be introduced in two years’ time. We look forward to the scheme completing and for future projects with Taylor Wimpey.”

John Duggan at Rapid PVCu adds: “This has been a fantastic project to work on collaborating with both the Eurocell and Taylor Wimpey teams to provide triple-glazed windows. Triple glazing really is the best option for lowering energy consumption and the fact that the Modus window system is made with recycled PVC-U makes them incredibly attractive for housebuilders.

“The windows will look really smart once the homes are finished and will provide longevity and energy efficiency for the new owners.”
