VEKA introduces the Vertical Slider - a new, innovative window and door system debuted at the FIT Show 2017.
Vertical sliders – traditionally known as sash windows – are among today’s most coveted window styles, and not only in the heritage market with which they’re most associated. VEKA Group has embraced the traditional design cues to create a window that is suitable for conservation areas and listed buildings, while offering features and performance that would be entirely at home in a luxurious new-build development.
Original timber-framed units are known for being draughty and hard to maintain, and can even swell and contract from season to season. There are no such worries with the VEKA Vertical Slider, which can even achieve the A+ Window Energy Rating depending on the glazing fitted.
The system couples a fully sculptured PVC-U profile with practical and stylish innovations, including neat sash stop end caps to keep leaves and other debris out of the profile, and optional run-through sash horns for an authentic period appearance. Clip-in horns are also available, or for a more contemporary look, the VEKA Vertical Slider can be specified without horns.
The VEKA Vertical Slider is available fully mechanically jointed and with the option of a deep bottom rail – also mechanically jointed – and of course, both sashes can be tilted inwards, providing greater ventilation and ease of cleaning.
The options don’t end there, with VEKA Group’s full Variations suite of 29 colour and woodgrain finishes available for the VEKA Vertical Slider, and the most popular shades provided X-Stock or within a four-week period.
The Vertical Slider has a slim outer frame which allows for flexibility in installation, and it is fully compatible with existing VEKA fixing brackets. 28mm is the standard glazing option, but other thicknesses can be accommodated with alternative beading.
