modus s opens new markets
elite 01827 302550
Tamworth based fabricator, Elite, is enhancing its range of window systems with the Modus S developed by Eurocell, a leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of window, door, conservatory and roofline products.
    Directors Phil and Michelle Warner believe that its traditional appearance combined with market-leading performance will enable their company to move into new markets.
“It will appeal to the affluent, premium market and will open up conservation areas where councils won’t accept PVC-U,” says Michelle. “The mechanical joint gives the window its traditional appearance at the front but the frame is fully welded, so you have all the protection against rain penetration and the wind resistance of a welded product – not many windows can do that,” says Phil. This feature, together with its outstanding energy rating, persuaded the Warners that Modus S was the right choice. “The energy rating for new-build is now a lot higher, and this window is rated A++ and that’s the BFRC’s highest possible Window Energy Rating, so I think we will attract the housebuilder market too,” he says.
now employs 28 staff, who service a customer base that is 70% trade and 30% retail.
without the maintenance legacy burden of repainting and repairs associated with timber windows.

Up to 25% less expensive than the nearest equivalent PVC-U flush sash product, Modus S is ideal for Victorian-style properties, cottages and conservation areas where the homeowner wishes to maintain or enhance the period look of the property,
Featuring a unique 75mm six-chamber profile system, the Modus range delivers optimum energy efficiency performance and can achieve a U-value as low as 0.7 – surpassing Passivhaus standards.
“We’re not high volume producers making thousands of frames a week,” Phil explains. “Our market is more residential, where the windows have to meet very high standards. Customers demand very close attention to detail. They look at every window to make sure there are no chips, dents or cracked welds.”
Flush on both sides, Modus S offers sleek looks unbroken by external bead lines as, like most contemporary windows, the system is internally beaded for enhanced security standards.
Modus S is available in ten colours from stock – including the White Ash, Cream White and Anteak popular for period, premium and self-build properties – and Chartwell Green and Agate Grey to order.
