Everest has worked with Veka to produce a profile system and 44mm triple glazed unit with a U-Value of 0.80 in line with the proposed 2025 Future Homes Standard.
The system is part of a complete redesign by the retailer of its core window and door range, as CEO Paula Chambers explained: “We recognise that consumers place particular importance on security, comfort, aesthetics, environmental responsibility, and affordability. Our new window and door system delivers on all these fronts, a particularly crucial offering in a time when both environmental impact and budget concerns weigh heavily on everyone’s minds.
“The Future Homes Standard, slated to guide the fenestration industry towards reducing the UK’s carbon emissions by 2025, emphasises the role of windows and doors. While the specific requirements are yet to be confirmed, preliminary guidelines suggest a U-value of 0.80 for new homes. While the regulations for replacement windows and doors are expected to be less stringent, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a range which meets this benchmark.”
She continued: “At Everest, we wholeheartedly embrace the UK Government’s vision of achieving net zero emissions which goes hand-in-hand with our customers’ desire to invest in quality products which will save on their energy bills. This is why we’ve set an ambitious U-value target of 0.80 for our window performance. This commitment has spurred us to develop a range of products perfectly aligned with the proposed Future Homes Standards.”
