The graceful style of sash windows is difficult to beat. But timber sashes, particularly old ones, are troublesome and require regular maintenance. The Spectus Vertical Slider has been designed to provide the authentic, period appearance without the drawbacks. It’s so good that planning departments have accepted it – even in conservation areas.
When we designed our Vertical Slider, we kept the basics: the elegant proportions and the two sliding panes that are so effective for ventilation. After that, we worked on improvements.
There are optional Georgian bars and sash horns to match original designs and a consistent period look with ovolo detailing to the frame, sash, beads and cills. These are beautiful, sliding-sash windows that are easy to maintain, insulating and secure. What’s more they can achieve a Band ‘A’ Window Energy Rating. Grace and elegance are now combined with performance and all the benefits of 21st century materials and technology.
Suitable for both replacing existing timber sliders in period buildings and adding character to any development, vertical sliders retain all the traditional features of their familiar counterpart but with the enhanced benefits that modern UPVC systems provide.
Our vertical sliding window has been developed as an authentic replacement for the traditional wooden sash window. Unlike its predecessor, this modern UPVC equivalent reduces maintenance to the minimum and provides a product of such eye-catching appeal it will grace any property.
A wide variety of decorative options are available, designed to the finest detail for a perfect finish alongside the following features:
- Triple brush seals for exceptional draught proofing
- Anti-jemmy bar and hardware that is fixed direct to reinforcement for optimum security
- Low-line beads and gaskets to improve sight lines and let in maximum levels of natural light
- The option of decorative continuous and stick on horns as well as authentic external Georgian Grill
