Installers who need 30-minute PVC-U fire windows in a hurry can now order the most popular sizes from specialist fabricator Euroglaze from stock. The Barnsley based fabricator, one of only a handful of accredited companies in the UK trained and trusted by REHAU to manufacture its RAUFERNO range of fire rated windows, says it is responding to demand from customers.

Managing Director Martin Nettleton explains: “Installers often only need one or two fire rated windows for protected areas on a larger scale contract and they don’t want to be held up waiting several weeks just for those. We’ve analysed the most popular sizes and are now offering both 600mm x 1000mm and 1000 x 1000mm windows from stock, with cills available if required.

“What’s more, our prices on these sizes are very competitive and we can deliver anywhere on the UK mainland in just five working days.”

Euroglaze's RAUFERNO 30-minute fire rated windows meet Building Regs Part B requirements and are classified to BS476 Part 22 (tested to BS476 Part 20). Based around REHAU’s popular TOTAL70 profile system, they have all the design and security benefits of conventional PVC-U windows but with a patented intumescent insert which provides the safety and security of more traditional fire rated products.

The in stock RAUFERNO frames come with a 20mm double glazed unit with 7mm Pyrobolite to the outside, 4mm non-wired float glass to the inside and an 8mm steel spacer. Other sizes and specifications are available on standard lead times of 4 to 6 weeks.

Martin Nettleton adds: “As accredited REHAU RAUFERNO fabricators, our expert team can advise on exactly the right fire-rated window for every application. More details are available on: or by giving us a call on: 01226 702553.”  Information on the RAUFERNO range is at
