We have designed our windows to accept 24mm insulationg glass units,
using Low E glass to comply with the amended Builing
Regulations Approved Document 'L' 2006. Low E glass (low emissivity)
has a surface coating that improved substantially its energy efficiency.
This coating lets the sun's rays through and reflects heat back
into the room.
All glazing must comply with the requirements of Part N of the
Building Regulations, 1998 edition and Part P2.2 of the Building
Standards (Scotland) Regulations, 1990 edition or later. Anyone
specifiying glazing should refer to these.
Fire Escapes - To meet the requirements
of Building Regulations Approved Document 'B' 2000, there must be
escape routes from habitable rooms in many situations. Window openings
must be 240mm or wider. This means a 600mm wide single
casement side-hung window, fitted with butt or fire escape projecting
hinges, will comply - as long as the window is 900mm or higher to
provide a clear opening greater than 0.33m².
All the windows we supply with fire escape projecting hinges have
non-locking fasteners. These fasteners are also
available on standard windows for use in fire escape situations.
Releasable Restrictors are reccomended for windows in fire escapes.
The minimum size sash window is 900mm x 1350mm
(Any small and you need a fire escape)
vents may be required. Please see your local Building Control
Dept' Of your local council (we find that each council has their
own interpretation of the regulations.)
For a New-Build situation (A new house or extension)
your plans will have been closely inspected and passed by yourlocal
council (Planning and Building Control) and you will have to adhere
ridgedley to the details contained in the plans.
In this situation the Building Control Dept of your local council
will visit site during the build process to check that everything
conforms to building regulations.
If you are replacing your windows you will need
to comply with the building regulations mentioned above.
To do this you will require a visit from building control to pass/approve
the windows and doors. There will be a charge for this (it varies
from area to area [Our Local Area £69]) and you will be issued
with a certificate.
Do not lose this certificate as you will be require
it if/when you sell your house.
