SUNFOLD SYSTEMS - Helping Achieve The Code For Sustainable Homes At Potton’s New Development

Folding door specialist Sunfold Systems has started the first leg of its door and window installation at the new ultra energy efficient show house being built by Kingspan Potton in St Neots.

The show house which has been designed as a contemporary barn will exceed the requirements for level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH), an initiative which was launched to ensure that all new homes constructed in England & Wales can be described as zero-carbon by 2016. The show house will demonstrate the key ways to achieve this by meeting the sustainability requirements of a new home measured against nine design categories include energy & CO2 emissions, pollution and waste.

Project manager Brent Ackerman commented on the project: “The aim is to make the property as thermally efficient and air tight as possible in order to achieve the credits required for the Code for Sustainable Homes. The roof is now finished, solar panels have been installed and we’re about to start on the brickwork cladding and further insulation throughout the property. Drylining specialists are about to begin fixing the plaster-boarding throughout the house which is a big job, but once finished, we will really be able to see the spacious interior of this barn style home.”

The show house provides Sunfold with another location for customers to view and test a selection of its thermally efficient window and door products along with the opportunity to meet with potential clients at both appointments and at dedicated open weekends for the public.

Products on show include the SFCW composite window system which has excellent U-values available in double and triple glazing; a four panel thermally broken aluminium folding sliding system, the SFK70 as well as a mid-range version the SFK20:20 with three panels; an Antelli front door with a high insulating core and a number of internal complete bespoke manufactured door sets both hinged and sliding and designed to reduce heat loss.

The windows have already been fully installed as part of the first fix and once brickwork cladding has been applied external door installation will begin. Internal door sets will be fitted towards the end of the project ready for completion early next year, 2012. Official launch will take place at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the end of March where Sunfold Systems will also be exhibiting.
