In response to the latest Government advice, and having reviewed our operation, our customer and supplier decisions, Epwin Window Systems has taken the decision today to implement a controlled shutdown of its operating site to assist in limiting the amount of unnecessary travel at this challenging time for us all.
We have taken this decision in the best interests of our staff and customers and also in order to play 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.
This decision will see a controlled shut down across the rest of this week resulting in a temporary closure from Friday 27th March 2020 until further notice.
We will look to resume operations as soon as it is deemed safe and, indeed, responsible to do so. We wish our customers and suppliers well at this difficult time and trust that everyone will do their utmost to reduce the risks to our society and assist the Government’s efforts.
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.
