Sliding into newbuild

Seventy-seven Spectus Vertical Sliding windows were manufactured and installed in the first phase of a new 900-home development in Holbeach, Lincolnshire.

The prestigious Holbeach Meadow Development features a mixture of one-to-five-bedroomed homes and is designed and built by Ashwood Homes. The Spectus Vertical Sliding windows were specified for installation in the new executive five-bedroomed detached homes on this first-phase.

The newbuild project was awarded to Spectus’ fabricator Highseal Manufacturing Company based in Scunthorpe.

The Spectus Vertical Sliding windows were manufactured in anthracite grey on white with run-through sash horns and chrome hardware for traditional styling. Several sets of French doors were also manufactured in the Spectus Elite 70 system.

The Spectus Vertical Slider captures many of the key features of traditional window design combined with the benefits of a modern-day window, which includes energy efficiency and smooth operating balance mechanisms.

Chloe King, sales manager at Ashwood Homes, said: “We specified sash windows on our five-bedroom executive homes to complement the high-end traditional features of the properties. At the same time, we selected anthracite grey on white to provide a contemporary look and feel that is so popular with our customers.

“The Highseal team were very professional and helpful. The attention to detail was superb, including undertaking any snagging that was needed. We have been delighted with the quality of the windows and doors and feedback from our customers on the ease of operation has been excellent.”
