Vello Nordic A.S. and Crown Fenestrations are launching the UKs first GRP fully reversible and enhanced security casement window systems at a series of seminars at end February.
For almost 20 years the USA and Canada have been recognising the various qualities of pultruded fibreglass (GRP) windows and doors - low environmental impact, energy-saving abilities and design versatility, and several landmark projects have been completed incorporating their use. GRP fully reversible windows are now available in the UK from Crown Fenestrations Limited and a series of RIBA-CPD approved seminars will be held in late February in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
The seminars will focus on the use of fibreglass in sustainable buildings and the thermal performance of fibreglass windows. They will include a distinguished speaker from Canada who will highlight the landmark projects in North America and speakers from Crown’s profile suppliers Vello Nordic A.S. of Norway who will describe the pultrusion process itself.
