What are ECOSlide PVC-U Vertical Sliders?

ECOSlide windows are thermally efficient and environmentally-friendly units which mimic the aesthetic appeal of a classic timber box sash window, but deliver all the benefits of a modern PVC-U system.

ECOSlide PVC-U vertical sliding sash windows are manufactured to exact customer requirements in unit sizes from a minimum 370mm in width and 740mm in height, up to a maximum of 1600mm in width and 3000mm in height.Shaped windows are also available in Swept Head, Gothic Arch and True Arch architectural styles. These impressive windows employ specially curved PVC-U profiles and are supplied with a fixed top sash and sliding bottom sash to provide ventilation.

Subject to dimensional design limitations, Swept Head windows can sometimes be manufactured with a shallow-sliding top sash in addition to a sliding bottom sash.

Tilt & Easy Clean Function

Low maintenance ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows only require a quick wipe down with a damp cloth to keep them looking as good as new.

The window sashes feature an inward opening tilt facility to allow easy and safe cleaning of the outside frame and glass from inside the building. This is particularly useful for multi-storey windows or windows positioned in hard to reach places.

Authentic Sash Details

It is the little details that help to make ECOSlide sash windows as authentic as possible.

ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows are as authentic-looking as possible, featuring slim profile sections with design aesthetics which are pleasing to the eye as well as offering improved views from the inside and outside.

Our windows incorporate the same stylish features found on original timber sash windows such as Astragal glazing bars, decorative sash horns and traditional-style operating hardware. The jambs, sash sections and meeting rail are all engineered to look just like an original timber sash window.

Sash Window StylesSelect the perfect design for maximum visual appeal

ECOSlide windows are available in a range of popular sash window design styles to provide 21st century modern replacements for original windows, including splayed and 90o box bay-style windows. We can also bespoke manufacture units in eye-catching architectural shapes such as True Arch, Gothic Arch and Swept Head windows.Transom drops are 50/50 split as standard. Other transom drops can be manufactured to order, but the transom drop will be determined by the grid layout.

Other additional design options are available with internal Georgian glazing bars or external Astragal glazing bars.
Windows to suit all applications, from traditional style through to contemporary designs

Toughened Insulated Glass

ECOSlide vertical sliding sash windows feature double glazed sealed units with toughened glass in both top and bottom sashes, for enhanced safety and security.

High performance double glazed insulated glass units are 24mm in thickness (outer pane 4mm, airgap 16mm, inner pane 4mm) for optimum thermal efficiency.

Patterned obscured glass is ideal for bathrooms, toilets and other room locations as required.  We offer a choice of privacy glass styles.

Colour & Foil Finishes

ECOSlide sash windows are available in White and Cream solid PVC-U profile colour options.

For a more natural wood effect, our Crystal White, Cream, Golden Oak and Irish Oak foils applied to both outside and inside surfaces give a realistic woodgrain appearance that mimics the grained texture and appearance of an original timber window.

We also offer as standard Colour-on-White options in Chartwell Green, Anthracite Grey, Rosewood, Black Brown, Cream, Golden Oak and Irish Oak. These dual-colour options provide homeowners with customer choice. For example, a characterful external colour can be selected for the external window faces, whilst maintaining a White interior finish to suit internal decoration schemes.

Note: Colours shown are a guide only – please see a Victorian Sliders foil colour swatch prior to placing an order.
