What is the most eco-friendly glazing for windows?
11 May 2023 |Advice & Guidance
As the global warming crisis continues to worsen, it is becoming increasingly important to take action to live sustainably in our daily lives. Our homes are a key area in which we can make a significant difference. Upgrading our windows is one effective way to improve our eco-friendliness.
Compared to older, outdated windows, modern windows are designed with advanced technology that provides better energy efficiency, reducing the amount of heat lost and cold air gained. This leads to lower energy consumption, as heating and cooling systems are not needed as much. By upgrading our windows, we can play our part in reducing our carbon footprint and protecting the environment.
Overall, Aluminium window frames are considered the most sustainable choice when sourcing the most sustainable construction material for home improvements thanks to having a significantly lower environmental impact compared to other materials due to their high recyclability. They are closely followed by natural timber window frames and then versatile uPVC window frames.
In addition to considering the material used for window frames when it comes to the impact on the environment, however, it is also now crucial to look at the whole window – and you must look at the glass and glazing of your window and its impact on the environment as well.
EcoMAX is a type of glass that sets a new standard for sustainability and environmental consciousness in the market and is the most eco-friendly option available today.
EcoMAX – maximum sustainable glazing
EcoMAX utilises more recycled materials than any other glass available. In addition to its impressive sustainable qualities, it is almost 100% biodegradable. At SEHBAC, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, which is why we plant a tree for every installation of EcoMAX glass.
EcoMAX features two high-quality panels of double glazing that offer excellent performance, comparable to other double glazing solutions available. With its superior thermal efficiency, EcoMAX can help to lower household energy consumption, making a great contribution to saving the planet long after installation.
