Windowbuild And the environment

Windowbuild has shown its commitment to the environment for the past decade and is fully committed to controlling and minimising its environmental impact to work in a sustainable manner.

Windowbuild has specially designed crates, which are then taken to a size reduction plant in the UK and then back to Telford to be processed through our advanced plant back into pellet or compound ready for its next useful life. Due to our continuous investment we can also recycle the rubber and metal found in most old windows ensuring that at least 95% of the old windows are used again.

We reuse the recycled windows to make our Recycled Composite Material (RCM) which is now used as reinforcement in our windows and doors. The Camfast cavity closer is also manufactured from recycled material and this can mean that up to 30% of the PVC-U window being fitted is recycled material.

Manufactured from waste PVC-U the new reinforcement is now used as an alternative to traditional steel or aluminium sections. Windowbuild also ensure compliance with the latest environmental Legislation and follow a continuous improvement program.

We offer continuous support and training to our employees to ensure we conform to the lastest developments. The Epwin Group investment in recycling is second to none and we can truly offer closed loop recycling. We have even produced the UK's first window make from 100% post consumer waste.
