Proposing three different colours of Eurologik 70 window from Eurocell – the UK’s leading manufacturer of PVC-U windows – helped Bloor Homes successfully address the concerns of South Hams District Council’s (SHDC) planning department and provide an attractively varied external appearance at its Woolston Fields development.
Set immediately on the outskirts of the small Devon village of Loddiswell, Woolston Fields is a development of 70 homes in a ‘country cottage’ style; including two, three, four and five bedroom properties, in the South Hams – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Jonathan Pope, Senior Buyer at Bloor Homes says
“We wanted to mix up the streetscape and provide interesting elevations, rather than just have the monochrome appearance we would have got with plain white frames. The planners were also keen that we should install timber windows but, with Eurologik, we were able to highlight the quality, the look and the finish that we could achieve with PVC-U.”
Ideally suited for new build or replacement windows in sensitive areas such as the South Hams, Eurologik provides clean sight lines due to its unobtrusive gasket line and slim profile, while its 70mm front-to-back dimension enables timber frames to be replaced seamlessly.
The three colours selected – Chartwell Green, Cream White, and Moondust Grey – were from the 25+ options available in the Eurocell bespoke foil range and complement the heritage style appropriate to the area, while the windows themselves were fitted with sculpted ovolo beads and Georgian bars that suited the Country Cottage design.
Also available with chamfered beads, the advanced multi-chambered design of the Eurologik system (including optional six-chamber slim outer frame system) and innovative recycled PVC-U thermal inserts work together to lock in heat.
These windows were amongst the first to achieve the ‘A++’ band in England & Wales for Window Energy Ratings (WERs) since the British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) launched the new rating in May 2015. The ‘A++’ rating is only given to those windows achieving an energy index value equal to or greater than +20.
