The window industry prides itself on innovation at all levels. Bison Frames’ Genesis Vertical Slider is the perfect example of innovation on a scale that has the power to completely transform its sector.
Mark Tetley of Bison says, “We wanted to create a vertical slider that offered something genuinely different and could enhance any home with its truly authentic looks. Our research forced us to look at everything about a typical PVC-u vertical slider in a new light and we started from the ground up in terms of design. The result is a window that can be – and has been – installed in Grade II listed properties. It represents a quantum leap forward for the industry.”
Every aspect of the window’s design has been carefully considered. The window is manufactured using traditional timber jointing methods rather than the usual welds, giving a beautifully authentic appearance. The joints are enhanced with design features such as a fully milled decorative Astragal Georgian bar, run-through sash horns and deep bottom sash rail to complete the tradit ional look.
The yesteryear appearance belies the state of the art performance and lifestyle enhancements that the window offers. The window, like all Bison products, can achieve an A Window Energy Rating, cutting heating bills and reducing a household’s carbon footprint. It is available in a full range of colours, including woodgrains, while high security Acorn cam locks and sash buttons provide peace of mind for homeowners.
Mark says, “For people living in historically significant homes, timber has been the only option for far too long. When the quality is right, timber has its place, but all too often the windows specified are poor quality, won’t stand the test of time and don’t offer the same advantages as PVC-u. The Genesis vertical slider gives people a genuine alternative that combines the beautiful appearance of a traditional timber sash window with the modern advantages of PVC-u. We think it’s a winning combination.”
