Quickslide, the company that popularised high quality PVC-U replacement vertical sliding box sash windows in the UK home improvement sector, is now offering the Legacy VS window to further extend the company’s penetration of the Heritage sector.
Quickslide has developed Legacy based upon Spectus Systems’ widely acclaimed VS after researching the market for more than two years for a window that could form the basis for what Quickslide Chairman Adrian Barraclough, says would become ‘the finest replacement vertical sliding box sash window available on the market today’.
Legacy is offered as a ‘true heritage’ window and one that builds upon the established credentials that the Spectus VS has long enjoyed with a reputation for being the benchmark for PVC-U vertical sliding windows. Quickslide 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 cill 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, all of which have been researched to ensure authenticity.
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, whilst the latest colour-matched wool pile seals ensure that every single window is perfectly finished. The system also adds a further four standard woodgrains to Quickslide’s extensive offer, including Agate Grey, English Oak, Nut Tree and Smooth Grey. The company’s in house colour-bonding and bending facilities will further extend the possibilities offered by Legacy.
Additionally, Quickslide’s highly evolved commitment to customer service will also provide an additional edge in the market. “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,” says Adrian. “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. But we need a superb product to which we can add that Quickslide ‘difference’. We are delighted to be working with Spectus and a team of people that share our passion and commitment to what we do.”
