Orbit Housing’s Fordham House development in Stratford-upon-Avon is an 82 apartment block designed to shield its residents from noise, many of whom are local workers in restaurants and bars so have to work shifts outside the usual working day.
This is achieved with special acoustic ceilings added to deep hollow concrete floor slabs. Fitted blinds within the window reveals also provide an additional noise cushion.
Our recycling process has been developed entirely in-house using our own engineering expertise and by adopting best practices from other industries, such as food manufacturing and rail engineering.
Eurocell has developed Dual Material Extrusion Technology (DMET) to enable the accurate processing of post-consumer (end-of-life) recycled material. DMET is used in all the manufacture of our main window profile systems, equating to approximately 27,000 tonnes of new products annually. With DMET, all of the post-consumer recycled material is concentrated in the core of the profiles, so the external faces maintain the finish quality and UV stability performance demanded by the relevant quality standards and customer expectations.
