Epwin Window Systems has introduced a fully mechanically jointed option on its market leading Spectus vertical slider. Sharn Samra, Marketing Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “With its authentic period looks, the Spectus Vertical Slider is renowned as the window that changes planning officers’ minds about PVC-U. By introducing a fully mechanically jointed variation, we are taking the authenticity to another level. And judging by the response so far, it’s going to prove a very popular addition!”
Spectus’ fully mechanically jointed vertical slider has all the features that have proved so enduringly popular on the standard vertical slider. The mechanical joints are complemented with two sash widths that give equal vertical sightlines, plus run through horns and a deep bottom rail. Dedicated ancillaries and end caps make it easy to personalise a window, as does the ability to use off-the-shelf or high end hardware. A choice of 28 colours increases the design versatility even further.
Despite the authentic looks, the window has everything homeowners would expect from a modern window and more. Reliable spiral balance mechanisms mean the window is easy to open and close, while the tilt inwards facility on both sashes makes them easy to clean. And a U-value as low as 1.3W/m2K and a WER in Band A+ means exceptional thermal efficiency too.
It’s a practical option for installers – the 128mm outer frame matches box sash dimensions and there’s the option of a 150mm or 210mm cill. It’s Kitemarked to BS EN 12608 and PAS 24 accredited, BBA approved and is designed to achieve Secured by Design status so is Document Q compliant.
In short, Spectus’ fully mechanically jointed option on its vertical slider does indeed mean the best just got even better.
