Hilson Moran’s Head of Research and Development, Ben Abel and his team recently published a White Paper on the Performance Benefits in Dwellings and Office Buildings from the use of C.U. in Ultra Insulated Glass.
Here we give a flavour of what the White Paper covers, to read the full research, please click the link at the bottom of the page.
The built environment is one of the main consumers of global energy and, as a result producers of carbon emissions. In the UK around 40% of annual carbon emissions are attributable to buildings. Much of the UK building stock is in poor condition in terms of thermal performance with windows often the least efficient part of a building fabric.
Finding more sustainable solutions for clients is key to our work at Hilson Moran which is why our Head of Research and Development, Ben Abel and his team explored and tested the latest C.U. technology. Incorporating a unique suspended film innovation inside of the glazing of a window, this results in a unit thinner, lighter and twice as thermally insulating as triple glazing, as well as reducing embodied carbon by 30%.
The C.U. technology will support landlords’ MEES goals for energy consumption in line with UK governance, including Building Regulations Part L and O, as well as support sustainability targets including ambitions for all new builds to be net zero by 2030.
