Fentrade Helps Customers Comply With The New Building Regulations Standards

by | Aug 3, 2022 | Windows

Aluminium fabricator Fentrade is ensuring its customers comply with the latest changes to Part L of the Building Regulations in England by manufacturing the Optio 58BW Casement HI and BSF70 HI Bi-fold Door systems from Aluk. Chris Reeks, director at Fentrade, explains: “June saw the latest changes to the Building Regulations come into force and updates to Document L meant installers needed to ensure they are fitting windows and doors that are compliant with tighter thermal efficiency standards. As a response to the tougher U-Values required within Part L, we began manufacturing the two updated Aluk systems which have been enhanced for improved thermal performance alongside our existing range of products.”

The Optio 58BW Casement HI window offers a powerful combination of performance, versatility and security and achieves a U-Value of 1.4W/m²K with standard double glazing and 1.2W/m²K with triple glazing. Similarly, the BSF70 HI Bi-fold Door achieves a u-value of 1.4W/m²K with standard double glazing and 1.1W/m²K with triple glazing.  Chris said: “The newly improved systems comply with the latest standards and offer the same highly engineered innovations that make the products popular with our customers.”

The Optio 58BW Casement HI window is a design classic with its clean lines and advanced functionality. Available with a range of customisable choices including square, bevelled or Flush Casement options, the aluminium windows are available in a wide range of single, dual and anodised colour finishes to suit all applications.

The thermally-broken BSF70 HI Bi-fold Door offers product versatility with its multiple opening configurations. With a choice of handle and colour styles and adjustable rollers for ease of installation, the frames can be supplied ‘flat pack’ for tight access locations if needed.

And as with all Fentrade products, there’s a rapid and reliable turnaround from order to delivery, including a quote within 24 hours.
