Modern Performance Traditional Styling
Form meets function...
The Imagine Vertical Slider carries all the beauty of a design classic, combined with the latest industry thinking.
Vertical Sliders are amongst the most coveted window styles, not only due to their aesthetics, but also due to their historical association with style and wealth. They are of course the default choice for heritage buildings, addressing the need to replace draughty hard to maintain windows with those hat bear a close resemblance, but can withstand the demands of modern living.
The new Imagine Vertical Slider holds a host of impressive features that not only add to its good looks, but also enhance the performance of the product as well as ease of fabrication and installation. From a fully sculptured 146mm outerframe and sculptured sash, to a co-extruder chamber, to an intelligent approach to coupling, these are just a handful of the many clever details that work together to create the most technically advanced Vertical Slider on the market.
The Imagine Vertical Slider is A rated as standard and achieves A+(12) at its top specification. It has been tested to both BS 6375 parts 1 and 2 for weather performance, as well as operating and strength characteristics, together with PAS24 enhanced security performance requirements.
Let's start with the frame...
A sculptured 146mm outerframe and sculptured sash frame provide the look of timber, with all the benefits of PVCu. Balanced, slim sightlines and a square travel stop cover, maximise light and provide an elegant timber-like aesthetic. Whilst the interlock between the top and bottom sash increases weather performance and security, providing customers with peace of mind.
Glazing: 28mm is the standard glazing option but 32mm can be easily accommodated with alternative beading.
Two choices of cill...
For a flawless look and a heritage feel, there are two choices of cill, 155mm stub or 200mm, giving your customers more choice. The 200mm cill provides more fitting options such as hanging tiles or deeper cavities. It also removes the need for a frame extension and standard cill combination.
Clever little details...
Every functional detail has been considered. Tilt arms move freely without the risk of catching the outerframe, due to a greater clearance in the design that doesn’t impact on balance and sightlines.
A square bead makes fitting the cam catch keeps nice and easy.
A coupling nut can be used as an alternative and simpler way to connect profiles. This ‘invisible’ fixing sits between the outerframe of each window so there’s no need to drill through the visible frame. A concealed coupling cover finishes the job off nicely, both inside and out.
When using frame to frame coupling screws, the frame infill can be used to conceal screw heads. Simply remove the frame infill for access.
A complementary bespoke cill coupler has been designed for a precise fit and ease of installation. The same reinforcement is used for the outerframe and cill for less stock holding.
