Opening The Door To Net-Zero Housing

Vista Panels has supplied its XtremeDoor composite doors for zero-carbon housing, working in collaboration with sustainable modular home manufacturer ilke Homes.

Vista supplied the doors to ilke and energy and regeneration company Engie, helping them to deliver 750 houses to the Royal Borough of Greenwich - some of the first in Greenwich to aim for zero-carbon. They have been delivered across the borough as part of the ‘Greenwich Builds’ programme.


 “We’ve worked closely with ilke Homes. It’s fantastic to see our door being used on these net-zero projects that will transform the housing market as we know it.”

Heated for less than £1 a day

Vista has also supplied its thermally efficient range of doors to Positive Homes, a developer that specialises in ultra-low energy homes, for a site in Newark. Thanks to precision-engineering techniques, each of the nine three-bedroom homes built have an ‘A’ energy rating, and can be heated for less than £1 a day.

“At Vista, we are very excited to be partnering with companies that are looking to take on the UK’s housing crisis and reducing our carbon footprint at the same time," adds Vista Panels' Pinder. "All this will help the UK to meet its zero carbon commitments and we are looking to supplying similar projects in the future.”
