MUMFORD & WOOD - Contemporary Fenestration By Mumford & Wood For Chic Code 4 Eco-Home

High performance, timber casements, French doors and bi-fold doors from the Mumford & Wood Contemporary™ range have been used extensively in the self-build design of a Code 4 eco-home in Essex. The Code for Sustainable Homes is the strategic benchmark to enable change in sustainable building practice and is the single national standard to drive continuous improvement, greater innovation and exemplary achievement in sustainable home building making this highly efficient, low maintenance window system so suitable to the performance and running costs of this exquisite new build.

Every aspect of the design of this bespoke property, which has the majority of living space on the first floor in order to capture the extensive rural views out to the Thames estuary, with bedrooms, bathrooms and dressing rooms to the ground floor, has a heat exchanger system; a glorious ‘living roof’; under-floor heating throughout, with either granite or cedar floor finishes; extreme levels of insulation and a window system that will ensure ultimate light, comfort and thermal performance. The homeowner has designed a building that, collectively, will benefit from low or no energy bills, within a cultivable acreage that provides almost total self-sufficiency for the family, and carries a visually ‘designer-chic’ label.

Mumford & Wood’s double glazed Contemporary™ windows and doors are BSI ‘A – C’ energy rated, depending on specification, and achieve an overall frame U-value of 1.4 W/m².K. This satisfies current Part L Building Regulations 2010 and surpasses the requirements of the forthcoming 2013 Regulations.

Contemporary™ timber windows and doors are factory finished with premium quality microporous paint in a wide choice of RAL colours. Alternatively, an aluminium-clad option is available for tilt-turn Contemporary™ sections which provides a superb weather-proof, low maintenance finish to the exterior and is ideally suited to coastal and exposed locations.

Mumford & Wood Contemporary™ windows and doors are available in open-out configurations, as supplied for this project, or in tilt–turn open-in sections with an aluminium clad option. Bi-fold doors are designed to meet any aperture and opening configuration. Triple glazing options are also available in the tilt turn range with whole window U-values as low as low as 0.8 W/m².K. A full installation service is available to the consumer if required.
