When ‘good enough’ isn’t good enough…

Energy Saving Upvc Profile

Leading the fenestration industry year after year, cutting-edge systems company, Liniar, gives us insight on how they stay ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation and energy efficiency. From launching the first Passivhaus compliant PVCu window in the UK to innovating the market’s newest, most exciting flush sash, we discover the science behind the success.

When we asked Liniar’s Design & Development Manager, Chris Armes, why the innovative systems company continues to develop more profiles, this is what he had to say:

‘We watch the market and respond accordingly. You can’t continue to market the same profile to different target markets. The ideology behind our EnergyPlus90 Passivhaus system came from the government announcing the plan to build 200,000 starter homes before 2020.

‘In the UK, most green spaces are protected, meaning these new developments would be urban or in brownfield land – surrounded by industrial companies. We saw the need for a new system that would give families in urban areas noise reduction from traffic and industry, as well as hitting PassivHaus, and World Health Organisation standards for noise reduction and thermal efficiency and thus the EnergyPlus90 profile was born.

‘Liniar wanted to offer homeowners a window option that would be ideal for living near the new HS2 line, congested roads or in urban areas. The first PVCu Passivhaus system in the UK, with EnergyPlus90 homeowners, don’t have to choose between excellent thermal efficiency and greater acoustic values – this system is the best of both worlds.’

2017’s EnergyPlus90 profile wasn’t the last system that Liniar launched. This January, Liniar released its Resurgence flush sash system, and just like the other profiles that come before it, it’s groundbreaking. At first sight, the Resurgence system looks like other flush sash systems on the market, but a more in-depth look proves there’s much more to this system than mechanical jointing and a flush exterior.

The first double-rebated flush sash window on the market, Resurgence utilises Liniar’s patented co-extruded bubble gasket, instead of the unsightly external seals and brush piles seen on its counterparts. With U-values as low as 0.8W/m2K and fully foiled glazing areas to both outer frame and transom profiles for the utmost authenticity, there’s already a buzz in the market around Liniar’s newest profile.

Chris explains, ‘Liniar isn’t ever going to stop innovating. There’s always going to be a need in the industry and the construction sector for newer, better, more efficient windows. It’s about saving the environment and reducing property owners’ ongoing energy bills while making them as comfortable as they can be in their home or business.

‘This year at the FIT Show we’ll be launching even more products – but you’ll have to visit stand J10 to find out what we’ve been up to over the last 18 months. We’re really excited about the future.’
