Epwin launches ultra-slim VS meeting rail

Epwin has launched the latest enhancement to its PVC-U vertical sliding sash window system.

The new ultra-slim vertical sliding sash meeting rail is just 37mm deep, designed to faithfully replicate the appearance of traditional sash windows.

The new slimmer meeting rail delivers clean sightlines to maximise light source whilst preserving the natural character of the window which according to Epwin is vitally important, especially on heritage-sensitive projects.

In addition to the new meeting rail, Epwin’s VS system also features a choice of welded or mechanical joint options, run-through horns, a deep bottom rail and dedicated ancillaries and end caps.

The system is available in a choice of colour options including popular heritage hues such as Chartwell green and cream. A choice of five complementary base colours is also available.

The system is 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, PAS 24 accredited and is designed to achieve Secured by Design status so is Document Q compliant.

Phil Parry, technical director at Epwin, said: “Our sash window fabricators are some of the country’s most respected and long-standing vertical sliding manufacturers. Our internal design and technical teams drew on their expertise to develop an ultra-slim meeting rail that factored in all the credentials to exceed customers’ expectations.”
