We have Green Appeal...

Green  Benefits

Energy saving and environmental awareness have become increasingly important and Finesse work hard to promote ethical and environmentally-responsible practices with regard to the manufacturing of our products and the disposal of any waste products.

A+ Energy Rated Windows

From October 2010, all new windows have to achieve a minimum “C” rating with regard to thermal efficiency – at Finesse, we now offer a fully-tested A+ Energy rated glazing system incorporating EcoClear® glass to the outer pane, Planitherm® low emissivity glass to the inner pane and WarmEdge spacer bars with Argon gas-filling for the ultimate in energy efficiency – this combination far exceeds the U-Values required to comply with Building Regulations currently in force in conjunction with the Government’s commitment to reduce Greenhouse Gases.

The Greenline PVCu Framework

At Finesse, we use Europe’s no.1 high quality PVCu framework from Kömmerling the leading manufacturer of co-extruded PVCu profile who were the first extruder to develop a lead-free stabilizer to use throughout the manufacturing process – stabilizers are required in the manufacture of PVCu, however, the use of traditional lead stabilizers has always raised concerns for the environment – by developing a unique calcium-zinc stabilizer, Kömmerling has avoided the use of lead entirely.

The benefits of this unique extrusion manufacturing method are :-

*          Far more environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes

*          No more discoloration or fading of PVCu frames

*          Non-toxic and 100% recyclable

*          Maintenance-free – no more painting and wipe clean with a damp cloth

*          Low production waste and takes less energy to manufacture than wood or aluminium.
