CWCT with VELFAC 200 Plus is NHBC compliant
VELFAC 200 Plus window system has been designed to perform exceptionally in large areas of window walling, tall buildings - up to 20 storeys, and in the most exposed locations - coastal sites, or high above sea level.
Stunning facades can be created where opening and fixed casements have identical sightlines, and where the window wall maintains the visual appearance of all the other glazing in the project, providing a coherent aesthetic for the whole development.
The range includes some of the opening functions from the standard V200 system which have been selected and tested according to Centre for Windows and Cladding Technology (CWCT) “Standard for Curtain Walling, Guide to Good Practice for Facades & Test Methods for Curtain Walling”
The selected functions also meet the weathering requirements for BS EN 13830: 2003 – Curtain Walling – Product standard.

Based on the established VELFAC 200 system, VELFAC 200 Plus composite aluminium and wood windows feature new enhancements and installation details which take performance to the next level - these include:
• Additional sealing for frame corners, mullion and transom joints
• Additional sash retainers for opening lights, and sash fixings for fixed units
• Secondary weather seals
• Additional weather screen gaskets
Test standards and classifications
VELFAC and CWCT worked together to develop a test rig and testing sequence to ensure that the VELFAC system would perform.
The test procedure was undertaken by Taylor Woodrow and overseen by CWCT, and as a result VELFAC 200 Plus achieved CWCT system certification.
This provides official CWCT accreditation of VELFAC 200 Plus, a greater achievement than simply gaining a successful test report from a testing house, thus giving specifiers an increased level of confidence in the performance of VELFAC 200 Plus within their own projects.
Fire windows and doors are only available as double glazed elements.
