Profile 22’s Optima Windows Help Improve Covid-19 Measures For Tilstock C Of E Primary School

by | Sep 13, 2021 | On-Site

Oswestry Windows and Doors has recently transformed Tilstock C of E Primary School in Whitchurch, Shropshire and also improved its Covid-19 ventilation requirements thanks to replacement Optima windows from Profile 22.

The school recently underwent an extensive renovation programme to replace its ageing timber sash windows that were no longer thermally efficient. Furthermore, several of the existing windows would no longer open which meant the school wasn’t able to provide well-ventilated spaces to help minimise the risk to staff and pupils of Covid-19.

The project specification was exacting as thermal efficiency was a critical factor, as was the overall energy efficiency of the building.

The 42 Optima replacement windows for the project were manufactured by longstanding Profile 22 fabricator Emplas and installed by the experienced commercial team at Oswestry Windows & Doors Ltd. The team undertook the window design and installation of the project to deliver the high standards the project demanded.

The award-winning Optima system from Profile 22 is one of the most widely specified commercial systems thanks to its impressive list of benefits that meet even the most demanding of requirements. Optima delivers optimal thermal performance, achieving a 1.2 W/m2K U-value as standard. It is PAS24:2016 compliant and its aesthetics and versatility sit comfortably in any architectural style.

For Tilstock C of E Primary School, white casement windows were specified with Georgian bar detailing to retain the building’s aesthetics. Matthew Dunne-Smith, Owner at Oswestry Windows and Doors, said: “We needed to keep the original character of the building while at the same time upgrading the performance of the windows. The new Optima casement windows have transformed the look and performance of the building and ensured adequate ventilation is available to support the school’s Covid-19 protocols.

The project was completed during the summer holiday to ensure the school was ready to welcome staff and pupils back in September. Matthew concluded: “The building has been transformed not only in its appearance but also in its energy performance. It is a simple but effective transformation.”
