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).

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.

Eurocell adds stylish new French door design to its Aspect range.
Eurocell, the UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U building products in the UK, is giving installers an even more stylish option to offer customers with a new, flush sash French door.
The new door design uses the stylish profile, attractive chamfered glazing rebate and patented gasket cover trim of Eurocell’s Aspect bi-fold door system, and offers a perfect complement to the seamless look of its Logik S Flush windows.
The contemporary flush finish and super slim sightlines are only part of the story, though. With no bulky, floating dummy mullion, there’s a truly uninterrupted view to be enjoyed from inside the house.
Meanwhile, the view from outside is enhanced by the use of elegant butt hinges rather than the conspicuous exterior flag hinges dictated by a rebated door. This discreet, adjustable pencil hinge design preserves the smooth exterior lines of the frame and sash in keeping with today’s design trends. Plus, it offers the option of inward or outward opening to increase design flexibility where space is limited.
The new door will be available double or triple glazed and in the full range of 7 Aspect foil colours. Eurocell have confirmed an Anthracite Grey through-colour profile will also be offered as standard. A highly popular colour trend at the moment, especially in RMI projects, through-grey means none of the white PVC core is visible, even along the edges of the door frame. The result is a door with all the looks and style of an aluminium design, without the premium price.
Another new addition is Eurocell’s door restrictor, which can be used with the latest French door and with Aspect bi-fold access doors. This allows the door to be left open in any position up to 90°, preventing it blowing open and damaging the hardware, or blowing shut and trapping fingers.
Like all Eurocell products, the latest French door is designed for simple, fast and accurate fabrication. In fact, fabricators who already make the Aspect profile system will be able to start right away with only a couple of additional items needing to be bought. It can even be used to fabricate single entrance doors too.
Following indicative testing to BS6375 and PAS24, the Aspect Flush French door is fully compliant with Part Q requirements for security, and in line with Eurocell’s commitment to sustainability that sees it recycle and re-use more PVC-U than any other manufacturer, it is made of at least 50% post-consumer material – Made & Recycled in the UK.
Despite the growth in bi-fold door installations in recent years, the French door remains the most popular choice of ‘lifestyle door’ among homeowners, with over 200,000 expected to be fitted this year alone. By introducing this new take on a design that has changed little in the last 30 years, Eurocell are hoping to galvanise sales still further and give their installer base another great product to take to their customers.
Ian Kernaghan, Eurocell Head of Product Design and Development, said the flush French door was one more example of Eurocell’s commitment to helping installers capitalise on emerging trends in the market:
“The new door design meets a need among homeowners for a flatter frames and less of the detailing that comes with more traditional profiles. It can also be installed with two threshold options – our standard frame, or a lower aluminium version for compliance with Part M regulations on building access.
“And of course, it offers complete peace of mind in the usual 10 year guarantee and 5 year hardware guarantee we provide with all our products.”

Eurocell report: should we re-think the traditional workplace design?
Eurocell report: should we re-think the traditional workplace design?
Findings from the latest report by Eurocell show that almost half (49%) of UK residents believe that the traditional “office” will soon become obsolete as home and remote working continues to increase. But what should the workplace of the future look like?
Death of the office: traditional workspaces to disappear in future, say half of UK residents
Almost half (49%) of UK residents believe that the traditional “office” will soon become obsolete as home and remote working continues to increase, according to a new report.
A further 60% said that the design of office buildings should factor in the possibility that they may need to be converted into homes in the future.
The survey of 1,000 UK residents has been published by Eurocell plc, the UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U window and door systems.
Respondents also highlighted a number of design trends that they felt were critical for the workplaces of the future:
• 52% said designs that maximise natural light
• 44% said buildings with good ventilation
• 41% said windows that open
• 34% identified soundproofing
• 31% said access to outdoor spaces
• 25% said communal areas
Set against a backdrop of the ongoing housing crisis – and the measures put in place by the government to tackle it - the Future Communities report reveals a range of consumer opinion on how the communities of the future should look.
In contrast to a waning popularity for office buildings and traditional work spaces, there was a clear preference for the construction of schools as cornerstones of the community. 81% of respondents stated that it’s important to include educational buildings within new housing development plans. A further one in three (30%) people stated that not enough is being done to implement this as it stands.
The report includes insights from five architects from practices BDP, Stanton Williams, TOWN and Urbanist Architecture. The panel discussed the potential for buildings to be built with a residential end-purpose in mind.
Analysing the findings, Doriano Chiarparin, architect at Stanton Williams, commented: “I’m not sure about the ability to repurpose every single workplace to make it become residential but I definitely think that we need to have loose fit buildings, so that there are spaces within the development that could become a shop, could become a workshop, could become a studio, could be something that if people set up a business they have a place to go.”
The incredible rise of co-working spaces points to a step-change in the way that traditional office jobs are undertaken and this has been reflected in the findings of our research. Communities are no longer simply places to live but - given that many millions of people now work more flexibly or remotely - they are also places that need to accommodate for the 9-5, too. It’s vital that the construction industry takes note and tailor future residential developments to fit accordingly.
