Modus - The first fully integrated window and door system
Modus is the first fully integrated PVC-U window and door system in the UK, capable of producing eight different product types from a single system. It’s an innovative 75mm front to back dimension six-chamber design, the first to utilise dual material extrusion technology (DMET) in the UK. DMET precisely directs 50% virgin and 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U into the profile simultaneously, with post-consumer material used only in the core of the profile, so finish quality and colour fastness is uncompromised. That’s why Eurocell can offer an unrivalled 12-year profiles guarantee for Modus.
Ultimate flexibility – 8 systems in 1
Modus is a contemporary architectural design with a choice of no less than three casement window sash styles – Standard, Slim Rebate and Flush – a style to suit every type of building. The Standard Sash option has a traditional PVC-U window aesthetic, which makes a feature of the window sash rebate, combined with slim sight lines thanks to the 55mm high outer frame profile. The Flush Sash option creates a distinctive appearance. Characteristic of traditional windows, it’s fully flush internally and externally yet offers class-leading thermal performance. The Slim Rebate Sash option creates a more contemporary aesthetic than traditional PVC-U windows. At just 7mm thick, the rebate offers sleek sight lines down the building facade, to complement current architecture. Internally, the sash is fully flush, for clean lines and a premium feel.
Modus reversible windows are the most energy efficient of their type in the UK and offer fully flush sash aesthetics. Bespoke designed hinges and handle complement the slim sight lines.
Modus tilt and turn windows offer a new stepped sash design, which goes one step further than Modus casement windows by creating a seven-chamber profile for maximum thermal performance. No steel or aluminium reinforcements are required and an optional third brush pile seal completes the high specification.
Modus French, composite and residential doors can be fabricated in a range of styles to suit the building architecture. Doors are available with a PVC-U low threshold to prevent cold bridging, which is Building Regulations Part M compliant with the addition of aluminium ramps (available separately).
Modus - Technical Performance:
High quality impact resistant white PVC-U extrusion utilising 50% post-consumer recycled PVC-U, producing a rigid six-chamber profile to BS EN 12608 and manufactured in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001 and BS EN ISO 14001.

UK consumers: We need communities, not just homes
UK consumers: “We need communities, not just homes”
New report reveals nationwide concern that housing developments are built too quickly, without consideration for supporting infrastructure or creating a sense of community
Two thirds of UK residents feel that too much focus is being placed solely on the construction of new homes, as opposed to rounded communities with supporting infrastructure, a new report has found.
The Future Communities Report has been published by Eurocell plc, the UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U window, door, conservatory and roofline systems. It draws on the findings of a survey of 1,000 UK adults with an equal split between homeowners, private renters and social housing occupants.
Almost seven in 10 (69%) of respondents said that they felt not enough consideration is given to the provision of educational, health and sport facilities during the current planning process for homes.
A further 32% of people believe that not enough has been done to support the development of doctors, dentists and hospitals, with a further 31% saying that not enough had been done to support the development of schools and nurseries. Respondents also said that not more should be done to provide parks (28%), leisure facilities such as sports and craft centres (26%) and amenities such as cafes (21%).
As a result of this, 55% of respondents said that they felt that quickly building a high volume of homes negatively impacts community spirit. In addition, 44% identified a failure to extend existing services (for example, doctors’ surgeries and schools) to allow for an increase in the number of residents as having the biggest impact on the integrations of new and old communities.
When asked to identify the top factors in ensuring that enough supporting infrastructure is developed in the communities of the future, 37% highlighted providing more opportunities for local residents to input on planning decisions while 36% said there was a greater need for collaboration between planners and service providers. Other factors highlighted included more focus on the design and build of multi-use buildings (31%), more powers over services being passed to local government for better local oversight (27%), and more strategic leadership at a national level (22%.)
The report also includes expert input from architects at leading studios BDP, Stanton Williams, Urbanist Architecture and TOWN. It reveals insight into the communities that people hope to live in and current trends in the built environment sector.
Fanis Anastasiadis, Architect Director at Urbanist Architecture, highlighted: “You now have a planning section before you even do the visual developments. This should involve the community from the start to identify needs and allocate them throughout the available map and make sure that the community has a clear view and goal for where they want to go and how people want to live in the future.”
Chris Coxon, Group Head of Marketing at Eurocell, commented: “In our 2018 Future Homes report, a reoccurring point made by those involved was that it isn’t simply about providing accommodation, but also developing buildings that provide a strong supporting infrastructure. As such, we wanted to gain insight into the communities that people want to live in and to provide the construction industry with a resource that will help them shape built environments that people desire.
“The housing crisis shows no sign of abating, so it’s vital that we have these conversations now. As a sector, we must reflect and act upon the issues facing future communities by listening to the views of the UK public – those who will be living in them.”
Eurocell makes it a full house for Logik with new Flush Sash range
Eurocell makes it a full house for Logik with new Flush Sash range
The UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U window, door, conservatory and roofline systems has a new addition to its already successful Logik window range. The NEW Logik S flush sash is the third sash option as part of the system, the new flush sash design also includes a through-colour grey option.
Among the most popular of the PVC-U window systems with the trade due to their strength, reliability and clean sightlines, the Logik Ovolo and Chamfered options from Eurocell are used in a wide variety of new build, commercial and refurbishment projects.
Now, with the NEW Logik S Flush Sash design, installers are able to offer the premium clean finish and flat, seamless surface between frame and sash that are increasingly in demand from architects, style-savvy homeowners and self-builders.
Adding to the contemporary appeal of the new range is another first for Eurocell: a grey substrate option in addition to the extensive choice of coloured and woodgrain foil finishes already available. This provides a continuous grey colour throughout the frame and sash so that, even with the window open, there is no white PVC-U core to be seen.
With the growing popularity of darker colours and aluminium window systems, Eurocell see this as a way for installers to offer the all-grey look to their customers in a PVC-U frame, without the significant extra expense of an aluminium product.
For fabricators, Logik Flush Sash is a chance to increase sales by broadening the range of products they offer without significant increase in stock holding. The new flush sash is available to use with both Chamfered and Ovolo outer frames, has 28mm double and 36mm triple glazing options, multiple sash style options including French Window and a wide choice of colour and woodgrain finishes including the new Woodec foils range.
Like the rest of the Eurologik range, the new Flush Sash product includes a number of innovative features to make fabrication, installation and ordering easier. These include a continuous steel reinforcement bar, low friction pre-assembled gasket corners and a common glass size for all internal and external doors and windows.
Multi chambered profiles manufactured using post-consumer recycled content offers market leading sustainability and innovative PVC-U thermal inserts work together to reduce heat loss, resulting in u-values down to 0.8 and an A++ rating for energy efficiency.
Exceptional air tightness and weather performance, security tested to PAS24 and BS6375 standards, BBA approved with a 10-year profile guarantee, you could say the new flush sash has taken Logik quality, efficiency and performance to a whole new level.
