Environmental benefits of Ecoease
Providing an eco-friendly product is very important to us. We are all responsible for the world in which we live. Thereby Ecoease secondary glazing was designed to offer a long-term, sustainable solution. Our glazing panels are 100% recyclable. In fact these PET panels contain only carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. In short, no Bisphenol A, no ozone depleting or acid rain causing elements.
PET secondary glazing panels
We use only PET sheets. PET is classified across the world as a food-contact safe material. In addition it is the most recycled plastic in the world. In 2018, a naturally-occurring enzyme was discovered and scientists found a way to speed up the enzymes efficiency. As a result this enzyme could break down PET in a matter of days. Scientists believe this enzyme can be safely recreated and modified to speed up the process even further. In the end, this could be a huge step to resolving a lot of the existing waste. Plastic bottles for example.
Focusing on Eco-friendly materials
All Ecoease glazing components are sourced from in the UK. This includes the PET glazing panels which are sourced from Ireland. This has only 611 miles to travel to our location in the East Midlands. In addition, materials are carefully optimised to ensure low waste. Hence we have a target limit of 5% materials waste in our production process.
Reducing your carbon footprint
The Ecoease secondary Glazing system helps to reduce energy loss. As a result this helps to reduce your carbon footprint. As the energy capacity in the UK drops, we must choose options for our homes which save energy and promote energy efficiency. We provide an excellent green option for conserving energy. In addition our secondary glazing helps to maintain (not replace) current windows. In turn this helps to reduce waste from windows that can’t be recycled or re-used.
Improve the efficiency of your home
The energy efficiency of your home can affect selling and renting. Namely, Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions of your home. Ecoease secondary glazing can actually help to increase ratings for EPCs.
Protect our heritage windows
Our Secondary Glazing helps to preserve our heritage. By using them in Listed or character properties, they help to sustain the original windows which may be hundreds of years old. Thereby, with the right care and attention they may last for many more years to come.
In summary, Ecoease secondary glazing is focused on providing an eco-friendly product, from production through to delivery.
Mr Stringer said:
“Fantastic customer service. Initially I wasn’t sure what an exact rectangular secondary pane would look like against the wonky juxtaposed walls of my old barn conversion. I thought I would try this out first on a window that is a little tucked away (and that I never open). I ordered the measure to fit option in white. In the hectic run up to Christmas I gave sizes for the wrong window! It all got sorted in the end. The staff were really, really friendly, accommodating and helpful. You’re definitely not just an account number but a real person they care about. It’s too early to say whether there is any improvement in insulation but I can say that this glazing looks very neat and unobtrusive. Fitting was easy, despite the window being in an awkward cubby hole. I shall be ordering more.”
