Standard UPVC Windows Specification | U-fit Double Glazing
Information and data that’s useful to know when buying any quality UPVC double glazing window.
Since 1996 we haved manufactured the Synseal Shield and Synergy systems extruded in Sutton in Ashfield Nottinghamshire.
Our Windows are manufactured from profile supplied by Synseal Extrusions Ltd, which are Kitemarked to BS7413 (Licence no. KM30983) and BS7950/7413 (Licence no. KM41324)'.
Synseal Shield profiles have been assessed by the BBA, Assessment report no. 1672 and no. 2519.
All Shield window and door profiles are extruded from 100% virgin compound and are not diluted with second or more generation of reground extrusions
