Key Benefits

Outstanding weather resistance properties.

As part of the process inachieving a BM Trada Q Mark for the Design, Fabrication and Performance of PVCuWindows and Doors (BS7412), sample windows were independently tested for water tightness, air permeability, wind resistance and hardware endurance. Nessglaze Ltd achieved exceptional results in all areas with structural strength exceeding the most stringent requirements and in a category of its own.

The test report is available to view on www.nessglaze.co.uk - the results of which were:

Air permeability:

Classes range from 1 to 4, with Class 4 being awarded to the most airtight window. Class 2 at 300pa is considered to be the class for a standard window, with anything above this normally specified for exceptionally airtight buildings, such as air conditioned buildings. Nessglaze achieved Class 4 at 600pa - the highest possible rating.

Water tightness:

Classes range from 1A/1B to 9A, with 9A being awarded to the most watertight windows.  Class 3A at 100pa is considered to the the class of a standard window. Nessglaze achieved Class 9A - the highest possible rating.

 

Wind Load:

Resistance to wind load ranges from Class 1 to Class 5, with Class 4 being categorised as "Severe Weather Exposure" - as requried for the Western Isles. Nessglaze windows were tested to conditions more extreme than a Class 5 and achieved Class AE2400 (2400PA) - in a class of our own.

We believe, given our location and sometimes severe climate, there can be no compromise when it comes to quality and strength of product.  These standards have been strictly followed since the company started manufacturing Windows and doors in 1985.  

The figures that came back from the testing underlines this commitment.  We believe that you can not get a more air tight, water tight or structurally strong uPVC window that the one manufactured by Nessglaze.
