Following extensive risk assessments throughout the business to allow a safe and phased return to work, in line with HSE and government guidance, in conjunction with ongoing dialogue with our customers in recent weeks, we will begin a phased and controlled reopening of our operations to support our customers from Monday 4th May 2020.
From this date, a small team of Customer Services personnel will be available to discuss order requirements. Reduced Manufacturing and Finishing Plant teams will commence limited production from Monday 11th May 2020
It is important to note that from this date, we will be operating with a limited workforce in place to support the initial needs of the business. This will be closely monitored on a week-by-week basis and scaled-up as business levels dictate. There may be some disruption to normal delivery schedules in the short term until we are able to get back to normal trading volumes. However, we will do as much as we can to support our customer’s during this interim stage.
The health, safety and welfare of our employees, customers and suppliers remains paramount and extensive measures are being adopted to ensure that necessary hygiene and social distance precautions are observed at all times. We remain committed to playing our part in helping the national effort to control the effects of Coronavirus on the wider population and particularly to reduce the risk to the NHS.
We thank you for your patience, support and understanding during this challenging time and we look forward to resuming the excellent business partnership we have.
Blending authentic sash window styling with superb performance
Sash windows are a design classic, but traditional timber frames don’t offer the long-term performance and easy care of modern materials. With every detail of our PVC-U Vertical Sliders accurately recreating the appearance of historic sashes, comfort, security and elegance has never been more practical or affordable.
The Spectus Vertical Slider is available with full mechanical jointing to the sash and outer frame and offers:
The Spectus Vertical slider has impeccable proportions. Every component of the system is the right size – a perfect recreation of the original dimensions. This includes the overall front to back depth of 128mm, which makes installation easier, and the style of the deep bottom rail. We offer different sizes of Georgian bar – to suit windows of differing scales – large and small sash profile options and a choice of perfectly sized cills. And for bigger properties, this sliding sash window isn’t scared to go large – there’s a maximum size of 3000mm by 1600mm.
In the past, few authorities would permit the use of PVC-U to replace a timber sash window. Thankfully, that’s changing. Planners have realised that our window’s amazing A+ rated thermal performance and low-maintenance qualities are great for the environment. The Spectus VS is well-known for its authentic appearance, and its use is often approved without further question. Even the most resistant of conservation officers are usually convinced when they see a sample. Now, with the option of a mechanically jointed sash which replicates the appearance of timber window joints, there can be few remaining objections.
