What are Vertical Sliders?
The Vertical Slider by market leader Spectus, is a realistic-looking sash window which combines contemporary materials with timeless character. These convincing PVCu windows essentially allow you to upgrade your period property’s aged windows to something more practical, without impacting the overall look of your home.
Why upgrade to PVCu sash windows?
One of the main reasons to choose PVCu windows, is that properties with original sash windows and single glazing are notoriously easy to break into. The Spectus Vertical Sliders’ PVCu frame is strengthened by steel or aluminium reinforcements within the internal chambers of the window. All fixtures and fittings are then secured to the metal supports, to ensure all hardware and locks exceed security guidelines.
The second main benefit of PVCu sash windows is their attractive design. Developed to look like traditional sash windows, these windows have a stylish ovolo finish and won’t compromise the appearance of your property. Choose from a variety of vintage colours and woodgrain finishes, Georgian bars and decorative horns to complete the period look. For added privacy and classic styling, pair with Pilkington textured glass.
To ensure you get the best thermal protection possible, Spectus’ Vertical Sliders come with 24mm glazing as standard. A pile seal detail around the outer frame also reduces draughts and provides better weather protection in harsh conditions. All of that combined means that these PVCu sash windows achieve an impressive energy rating of Band A.
Unlike traditional wooden windows, PVCu is very low maintenance. The UV-resistant pigment won’t fade in the sun and a high-impact modifier in the window’s composition protects against degrading and warping. You also won’t need a ladder to clean them. A useful pivot bar allows you to tilt the windows open and clean them from the inside.
While you may have concerns over how PVCu can impact the environment, Spectus Vertical Sliders are developed with this in mind. As such, the PVCu material is created from recycled waste, negating the need for timber and harmful paint products at the same time. These thermally superior windows also reduce heat loss for better energy efficiency, making them a great long-term investment for your home.
