Case Study - WarmCore Windows, Burrard Park
The energy efficient WarmCore window and door system has become the first choice aluminium system for Warwick-based Heathco Country Homes Ltd, who has built five new four- and five-bedroom homes at Burrard Park in Lighthorne, Warwickshire.
The homes have been finished with flush sash aluminium windows throughout, plus WarmCore folding sliding doors at the rear of the property to open the living spaces out to the gardens. The largest of the properties boasts four bi-fold doors including one on the balcony of the master bedroom.
The sleek, architectural finish of WarmCore windows and doors is perfect to complement modern new build homes, and has been designed to be 25% more thermally efficient that most aluminium alternatives. This gives homeowners the dual benefits of beautiful aesthetics and thermal performance on par with some of the best PVC-U products.
The WarmCore windows are finished in Crisp White internally and externally, matching the neutral interior tones and providing a striking contrast to the grey front and garage doors from the front of the property. WarmCore windows can also be specified in dual colour, and thanks to the composite structure of the profile this can be delivered in the same lead times as standard.
The WarmCore flush sash casement windows are designed using a stepped outerframe so the sash sits on the same plane as the rest of the window. Where two sashes meet, a feature mullion creates a precision bead line in-between the two windows, creating a very clean and modern finish.
Stephen Kelly at Heatho Country Homes, said:
“This was the first time we specified the WarmCore system after it was recommended to us. We were very impressed with the double glazed U-values WarmCore can achieve of just 1.3 W/m²K for windows and 1.4 W/m²K for the folding sliding doors and it fit our requirements for a modern new build development perfectly with the sleek aesthetics of a flush aluminium finish.
“Seeing the products installed now we are very pleased with the choice of products and will be looking to use WarmCore again in future developments. It makes such a difference to use affordable, high performance aluminium products that offers the same thermal benefits of PVC-U but with a much cleaner finish.”
