Synseal’s Legend70 profile helped PVC-U beat composite to a 100-frame contract for a new-build care home at Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales.
The main contractor and local authority were originally looking to use composite for the window and door frames at the home in Treharris, as Sean Mullins, director of fabricator/installer BWM Ltd explained:
“But when I showed them the Legend profile and the cost saving over composite, they went for it straight away. It had the right kind of specification and the grey on white was just the look they wanted and of course, we were able to give a much better price.”
BWM, based in nearby Pontypridd, has been working with Legend for about 15 years. Commercial contracts now account for over two thirds of its business and while Legend is designed specifically for the commercial market, Sean explained that the company finds it equally suitable for all of its work:
“We are able to use the same system for all our PVC-U. It does the job, whether it’s commercial or domestic, and that keeps things simple at the factory.”
Legend is a popular choice among architects and specifiers. It can achieve a 1.2 U-Value in a double-glazed unit or 0.9 in triple. It incorporates three attractive trim levels and more than 150 components, making it very versatile in both looks and performance, and is also available in a 100%recycled option.
