Clayton Glass, in partnership with Yorkshire Windows, proudly announce the launch of a brand-new window IGU: EcoMAX. Produced locally in the UK, using a high level of recycled and organic materials, EcoMAX is the country’s most environmentally friendly glass unit.

Meeting both the growing demand from environmentally concerned homeowners – studies have found that 82% of home buyers would pay more for eco features – and Government pressure for greener housing, EcoMAX was created to spark a wider movement amongst the glass installation industry towards conscientious material choices.

Manufactured in the UK to reduce carbon emissions, EcoMAX uses the highest level of recycled materials and a natural, biodegradable sealant. However, the new product’s environmentally friendly features do not compromise on quality, with EcoMAX matching the performance of A and A+ rated windows.

Currently available exclusively through Yorkshire Windows, EcoMAX boasts a U-Value of 1.2, 71% Solar Gain and 82% Light Transmission – all intended to further increase the benefits to the planet by maximising the sun’s natural heat and light to reduce the reliance on fossil-fuelled lights and heating.

Finally, IGU manufacturer Clayton Glass will plant a tree in honour of each EcoMAX installation to complete and celebrate the choice of homeowners and further offset the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process.

We’ve been listening to and evaluating the market over the years, and there’s been a clear increase in demand for an IGU which sits in line with sustainably conscious values. EcoMAX is here to fill this gap in the market as not only an eco-friendly choice, but one which still delivers high-value performance. Ryan Green, Clayton Glass Managing Director

EcoMAX is currently exclusively available through Yorkshire Windows, with plans to further increase distribution in the future.
