New Amended Part F Summary Document For Window Ware Customers

by | Apr 20, 2022 | Brochures

Independent hardware distributor Window Ware is on a mission to make sure its customers have a good handle on the upcoming new Part F guidelines.

The company, which has successfully served the window and door industry with hardware, tools, and consumables since 1987, has created a summary document that outlines the key revisions to Part F (ventilation) of Building Regulations in England for both new builds and refurbishments.

Ahead of the new regulations, which come into force in England on June 15, Window Ware’s succinct summary aims to break down the changes in layman’s terms and put customers in the know about how best to comply.

Commercial director Richard Bryant said: “At Window Ware, we have always made sure our customers receive the very best guidance on the latest regulations so they can take any changes all in their stride.”

“It’s important that fabricators and installers know exactly how the updates to Part F will affect both them and their customers going forward.”

“We really hope they’ll find the summary quick to read and easy to digest, with all the key points set out plain to see. Like any regulations, there’ll always be exceptions to the rule, but the guidance contained in this document should apply to the vast majority of build projects. By giving our customers a solid grasp of the fundamentals, we can help bring them one step closer to Part F compliance, and that’s a win in our books!”

In a nutshell, the revised standard in England for new builds calls for greater background ventilation, with the airflow requirement in habitable rooms increasing from 5000mm2 EA to 8000mm2 EA.

Likewise, in the refurbishment market, vents must be fitted to replacement windows as standard. More specifically, if the existing windows already have vents fitted, then the replacements windows must incorporate vents with the same airflow or higher. If the existing windows do not have vents, then the replacements units must have vents fitted to meet the revised Part F requirements.

Window Ware’s extensive range of vents, developed by the likes of RW Simon, Greenwood and Glazpart, means they can always provide customers with the right ventilation solution to meet specifications.

“New vent options and variants are already under development and due to hit our shelves over the coming months,” added Richard. “This ever-evolving product range, backed by expert advice and strong supply partnerships with some of the most innovative vent manufacturers all ensures that customers can count on us to support them every step of the way.”
