Epwin Window Systems launches new ultra-slim Vertical Sliding Sash meeting rail

Published: 8th January 2024

Epwin Window Systems has just launched the latest enhancement to its best-selling PVC-U Vertical Sliding Sash Window System. The new ultra-slim Vertical Sliding Sash meeting rail is just 37mm deep, faithfully replicating the appearance of traditional sash windows and adding even more heritage authenticity to the well-regarded system.

Phil Parry, Technical Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “The PVC-U Vertical Sliding Sash Window System has always been the window of choice for conservation areas, listed buildings and period properties. The new ultra-slim meeting rail enhances these credentials even further.”

Epwin Window Systems has a long track record of continuous investment in its systems to ensure it continues to meet the long-term needs of its customers. This ultra-slim meeting rail is the latest example of this.

Phil commented: “Our sash window fabricators are some of the country’s most respected and long-standing Vertical Sliding Sash Window 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.”

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

The new meeting rail joins a wealth of features that help to deliver heritage excellence for every project. They include 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. And for a premium aesthetic appeal, a choice of five complementary base colours are available to achieve a seamless appearance, especially when the window is open.

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.

Thanks to its combination of authentic aesthetics and impressive performance, Epwin Window Systems’ PVC-U Vertical Sliding Sash Window System has been a system of choice since it was launched in 2000. With the introduction of the ultra-slim meeting rail, the aesthetics have been taken to the next level, and ensures the system will continue to hold its status as the industry’s preferred sash window solution.
