The finest available?
Quickslide now offers the Legacy VS window, which is based on Spectus Systems’ VS after researching the market for more than two years to find a window that could form the basis of “the finest replacement vertical sliding box sash window available on the market today”, according to chairman Adrian Barraclough.
Quickslide said it has paid great attention to the exceptional detailing of authentic period aesthetics, which are the most important criteria for buyers of this style of window. Key aesthetic features include the authentic ovolo shape to the frame, bead, sash and sill with a wide range of detail customisations including Georgian bars, run through sash horns, external weather bars and a deep bottom rail together with flush gaskets that emulate traditional glazing.
The period features – including Quickslide’s choice of standard weld, seamless Graf weld and fully mechanical timber look butt joints – belie up-to-the-minute glazing performance that provides Window Energy Ratings of Band A when glazed with 24mm IGUs, the company said, and the latest colour-matched wool pile seals ensure that every window is perfectly finished.
The system also adds a further four standard woodgrains to Quickslide’s offer, including Agate Grey, English Oak, Nut Tree and Smooth Grey.
“We have taken a great deal of time and care to add a VS that further extends the quality and performance offered by our established Renaissance VS, strengthening the position of Quickslide as a UK market leader for replacement vertical sliding box sash windows,” Adrian said. “Every element of frame fabrication and finishing is carried out in-house at Quickslide by a team of people that understand what they are doing and the importance of that to our customers.”
Katrina Earl, head of sales at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Quickslide is an expert in the sliding sash window market and they have the most exacting standards when it comes to authenticity and performance.”
