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).

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.

Eurocell Setting the record straight on PVC-U’s sustainability credentials
With so much negative press around plastic dominating the headlines, there is a risk that all plastic gets tarred with the same brush. This assumption that all plastics are as bad for the environment as single use ones runs the risk of opportunities for a more sustainable future being missed. Because putting it simply, not all plastics are made equal.
This is particularly true when it comes to PVC-U, which is used as a durable building product for everything from window frames to conservatories. The common misconception is that like many plastics, PVC-U is non-recyclable. However this couldn’t be further from the truth.
In fact, PVC-U is actually a construction material that can have its lifetime significantly extended to help reduce waste. But, no doubt you are wondering, how can this be possible when everything you hear about plastic is so negative? The answer to this can be found in science.
Getting to know PVC-U
PVC-U is made of two core ingredients; polyvinyl chloride and ethylene. The polyvinyl chloride comes directly from salt while ethylene is a by-product of oil. This is unplasticized, meaning that it doesn’t contain plasticized chemicals. Instead, to make it hard and durable, impact modifiers and filers are used.
As a result of these modifiers, the scientific behaviour of the plastic changes, meaning that for the first 4-5 times PVC-U is recycled, it actually gets stronger by up to 6%.
This means that PVC-U can be re-processed and used to manufacture products of equal quality, creating an ‘upstream’ recycling process. This recycling process is one that every PVC-U product can go through up to ten times, meaning that the lifespan of the average PVC-U product can be extended from 35 years to 350.
Not all plastics are equal
As a result of this recyclability, tarnishing PVC-U with the same brush as the single-use plastics that pollute our oceans, is likely to undermine attempts to improve sustainability across the construction sector. And by dispelling this myth we will be better positioned to ensure that the 5.6million PVC-U window frames that end up in landfill every year are recycled instead!
