EVS is a high glazing system that performs well across every level, from leading thermal insulation values to enhanced durability that protects your existing timber framed windows.
EVS glazing is a simple process, makes installation quick and easy, saving time and money on your retro glazing project. Home owners can save even more by DIY installation.
EVS maintains the character of homes that have beautiful features such as delicate astragals, coloured glass and leadlight windows. See how different home owners have upgraded their homes with before and after images to compare.
Condensation is the most damaging aspect of single glazing because of the unhealthy dangers of mold and the destruction caused by rot. EVS eliminates over 90% of your window condensation making for a healthier, warmer home.
The secret to achieving high performance at more affordable prices, is by retaining the existing glazing which reduces installation costs and increases the glazing cavity for extra insulation.
Unique EVS Technology allows windows to breath, removing moisture to maintain warm and dry windows and provide protection against damaging condensation and mould.
EVS Retro Glazing provides greater protection to older character windows that are exposed to the elements by providing a durable protective uPVC cover frame with integrated double seals that prevent moisture reaching the old putty and glass. This uPVC wont rot and can be painted to blend into the existing colour scheme, adding to the character detail of the original windows.
All new Patent Pending Technology
EVS is a totally new glazing system that is designed to fit externally to existing timber windows. EVS’s unique patent pending technology allows trapped moisture to be vented, while providing increased thermal insulation and protection. EVS has the performance of triple glazing but at more economical prices than double glazing. Installation is a lot quicker and easier than traditional retro fitting double glazing to timber windows, which saves money and time.
PVCu insulation and protection
The latest EVS profiles are made from PVCu which can be painted to match your existing timber paint finish. The PVCu profiles provide increased weather protection to the vulnerable putty edges as well as increased the thermal layers to reduce heat loss. The attractive EVS profile adds further character to your existing timber frames.
Heat Camera demonstrates heat loss.
These images show the heat map from the EVSx3 fixed to the bottom windows and the single glazing along the top windows. The red colour indicates higher heat loss and the yellow indicates better insulation with less heat loss. The EVSx3 panels maintain a similar temperature to the surrounding timber frames, demonstrating how effective EVSx3 is at providing a high performing thermal protection. (Just a note about the red on the middle EVSx3 panel, is a reflection of the heat from the photographer, not heat loss from within the home)
Temperature Comparison Test
Temperature readings from around a home with different glazing systems. EVSx2 performs well above standard Double Glazing and just below top of the range Xcel glazing. Please note that this test was undertaken by EVS and has not been independently varified. EVS is in the process of getting independent BRANZ testing done, and their results will be made available when they are completed.
EVS product and workmanship 10 Year Guarantee
Your timber windows are vulnerable to the affects of weather particularly around the putty and glass junction. These areas are the first to fail with water and sun acting on these delicate edges and opening up cracks where water can penetrate.
EVS provides a greater level of protection by encapsulating the vulnerable putty edges and keeping water and damp away. EVSx3 goes even further to protect your home from noise, condensation and UV damage with its triple layer defence against the sun and moisture.
The PVCu frame
The PVCu frame is protected against the damaging rays of the sun by being painted every 15 years. The PVC is rot proof and has a double seal design to block water from getting past the glass edges.
The glass units are vented to remove the thermal stress and extend the life of the edge seals. There is a range of glass combinations from stsndard 4mm flaot glass through to hardcoat low-e thermal protecion glass
The unique patent pending vent system provides a on-going cycle that absorbs and releases moisture to maintain a dry cavity and remove fog and condensation. The special qualities of Bentonite clay inside the vents have a lower moisture release temperature than silicon desiccate found in most other glazing systems. This allows moisture to be released when temperatures are hot and capture moisture when temperatures are cool.
10 Year Guarantee
EVS has provided a 10 Year guarantee encase bad workmanship or the product fails in that time frame.
EVS Draught Retro Seal
Older timber windows and doors can be upgraded to Healthy Home Standards to prevent draughts by installing EVS Draught Stops. These are made of areated PVC which looks and feel like timber but with the added benefits of being weather proof, and pre-finished as timber or white and can be fitted to most windows and doors as a permanent long term solution.
