The recent changes in Building Regulations Part L emphasise the need for superior insulation through lowered U-values for windows and doors. Cherwell’s offerings align seamlessly with these regulations, ensuring that your architectural projects meet the latest standards. With a focus on reducing heat loss, our products prioritise optimal insulation, making your space more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
Our commitment to compliance extends to Building Regulations Part F, emphasising the importance of proper ventilation. By providing a constant flow of clean and fresh air, our products help your living environment by reducing issues like moisture, condensation, and mould. When working with Cherwell, rest assured that your ventilation needs are taken care of to ensure a comfortable and healthy living space.
The upcoming Future Homes Standard, expected to take effect in 2025, will have a profound impact on the glazing choices for your windows and doors. As the industry prepares for these changes, it is crucial to consider the following:
Energy Efficiency Requirements
To meet the Future Homes Standard’s ambitious goal of carbon neutrality, windows will need to meet even more stringent energy efficiency requirements. This will involve utilising advanced technologies like triple glazing, ensuring airtightness, and implementing effective ventilation to reduce the overall carbon footprint.
Impact on the Glazing Industry
Anticipate significant shifts in the glazing industry as manufacturers strive to develop more energy-efficient windows in compliance with the upcoming standard. Cherwell remains dedicated to staying at the forefront of these changes, offering innovative solutions that meet the evolving demands of the glazing industry.
Cherwell proudly operates under the FENSA scheme, ensuring a high level of service and quality assurance for our customers. As part of FENSA, we provide a 10-year insurance-backed guarantee, granting you peace of mind in the event of any installation issues. If your project is requiring glazing into a new build home or dwelling please note this would be covered under your building control application and wouldn’t fall under the FENSA scheme as this is purely for the replacement market.
