AGC Glass Europe and Masterframe have teamed up to claim a UK market exclusive with the launch of a PVC-U sash window with Fineo vacuum insulating glazing.

Fineo is an ultra-slim 10mm glazing with two panes surrounding a vacuum, said to match double or triple glazing for thermal insulation with improved light transmission.

Masterframe MD Carol Slade said: “Although we are true sash window specialists, we are now operating in a highly competitive sector. To remain a specialist and to stay ahead of our competition, we are completely design and performance focussed and seek to offer customers brand new and exclusive innovations.”

Fineo Glass CEO Serge Martin added: “This partnership with Masterframe is key for Fineo deployment in the UK, where sash windows are a staple of the windows market. We have been working closely together over the past months to design a premium window that will stand out in the UK market, and we are very confident about its future success.”
