On 1st May 2008 the Government confirmed it would be mandatory for all new homes to have a rating against the code for Sustainable Homes.
Clear View are committed to designing and installing industry-leading windows and doors for new homes that continue to rank high on the Code for Sustainable Homes; supplying Blyweert Beaufort’s Advanced Plus window range, the most pioneering and benchmark setting aluminium window systems. This aluminium window system was the first to achieve a Level 4 on the Code for Sustainable Homes which requires that a system must offer a 44% reduction in carbon emissions.
The Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) has 6 levels. Each level is an increasing reduction of carbon emissions, for example, Level 1 requires a 10% reduction of the Target Emission Rate (TER), Level 3 requires a 25% reduction, and Level 6 requires a 100% reduction and is deemed a ’zero carbon’ structure.
The Code aims to protect the environment by providing guidance on the construction of high performance homes built with sustainability in mind.
