In partnership with PN, Carl F Groupco has developed reversible gearing for the new Eurocell Modus PVC system. The latest advancement reinforces the company’s role as a key contributor to pioneering advancements in the UK fenestration industry, and its position as one of the country’s leading hardware suppliers.
Designed to fully reverse for easy cleaning, the hardware has been produced to complement the slim Modus profile. Key features include an integral child restrictor and reverse catch for BS 6975 Part 2 2009 compliancy. Operation of sash reversal is performed outside the building to avoid contact with interior curtains and blinds.
Commenting on Carl F Groupco’s development, Ian Kemp Sales Director for Eurocell said:
“Eurocell has always had a close technical partnership with Carl F Groupco. The Eurocell Product Development Team responsible for the design of the Modus system worked with Carl F Groupco at an early stage in the development to ensure an integrated design was achieved.
“The new Reversible Modus Window, which utilises Carl F Groupco hardware, provides easy operation, reliability and class leading thermal performance, along with improved sight lines. These benefits are expected to open up new market opportunities for both companies.”
Eurocell reports that, since its launch earlier in the year, Modus has received an unprecedented response from all market sectors. The company attributes success to the system’s distinctly different aesthetics and market-leading thermal performance: it has proved suitable for large new build developments through to one off houses looking for a contemporary style.
The Eurocell Modus profile is the UK’s first fully-integrated door and window system. Slimmer sight lines and design aesthetics have given specifiers an alternative to aluminium and timber products. A triple-seal option offers excellent thermal / air tightness and its unique 75mm six-chamber profile system delivers optimum energy efficiency. In line with Carl F Groupco’s desire to support green initiatives, Modus features 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U as standard.
