As one of the UK’s leading window and door manufacturers we operate to the highest of standards. It means you can trust our products and processes to add value to your business.
We continually assess every aspect of what we do to make sure it delivers excellence. We believe in continuous investment in our people, products and processes so we can be confident we can retain our position as one of the industry’s leading names.
All our products meet current Building Regulations as standard and many can provide solutions far above these requirements.
We are a BS EN 12608/PAS24 window and door system supplier, meaning our windows and doors meet enhanced security performance requirements.
We are a Secured By Design member. Our products are capable of meeting the requirements of this UK Police initiative that supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ by use of effective crime prevention and security standards.
Our manufacturing processes are accredited to:
We hold BES 6001 accreditation for responsible sourcing of construction products. Our products hold the VinylPlus® Product Label that makes it easy for customers and markets to identify the most sustainable and high-performance PVC products.
Security on Optima is second to none thanks to innovative features and intelligent design. It means you can give your customers peace of mind that their properties are secure and protected as standard.
Optima has a number of innovative features that mean security is assured and can accommodate the very latest in high-security hardware, advanced multipoint locks, keeps and key-locking handles.
There is a central Eurogroove built in as standard to ensure the sashes have greater strength and rigidity and are less susceptible to manual attack.
Optima uses a clip-in bead system, which makes beads easy to install. There is no need to add glazing clips either, which makes fabrication and installation faster. Despite these advantages, the system is secure and passes rigorous tests.
The system also includes strategically placed local wall thickening – proven to deliver 35% better screw and hardware retention. The result is fewer maintenance call outs, fewer hardware problems and longer-lasting security.
The features mean that Optima is secure as standard but can easily surpass the standards required by the UK Police-endorsed Secured by Design scheme when required.
Epwin Window systems has a complete package of support to help you comply with thermal efficiency legislation and provide your customers with accurate, verified window and door specifications.
Window Energy Ratings provide a benchmark for comparing the energy efficiency of different window systems.
You will find details of the typical WER of each of our products on the individual product pages. However, the rating will differ depending on a huge variety of factors including glazing, options, frames and inserts.
Many projects require accurate, verified WERs. You may also want to check the WER on a certain product configuration to ensure it meets the current building regulations requirements, which stipulate windows must have a minimum WER of ‘C’.
Our U-Comply Self-Help Calculator gives you the means to calculate the WER. The calculator has been approved by BSI as a Notified Body and automatically creates BSI Approved Notified Body Reports for CE marking. If you prefer, you can also contact our technical team for support
