Carmen Velilla, Brand Manager at Spectus, said: “The tried and tested authentic period looks of the Spectus Vertical Slider means it is renowned as the window that changes planning officers’ minds about PVC-U. The mechanically jointed version takes authenticity to another level because the 45 degree PVC-U welds on the frame and sash are replaced with 90 degree mechanical joints, creating a wealth of new opportunities to work on heritage and conservation properties.”
The mechanically jointed version of Spectus Vertical Slider was introduced at the FIT Show and Carmen says the reaction was extremely positive. “Feedback from both existing and prospective customers was exceptional and everyone appreciated the quality and attention to detail.”
The fully mechanically jointed version of the Spectus Vertical Slider has all the features that have proved so enduringly popular on the standard version. 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. The choice of 28 colours from Spectus’ Spectrum range, including five from stock, 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, the fully mechanically jointed option on the Spectus Vertical Slider means the best just got even better.
