The Modplan team has completed a plant expansion to further strengthen the production output of PVC-U flush sash windows. The new 220m² manufacturing centre has increased production output by more than 50%, the trade fabricator’s leaders have reported.
“Our focus is always to give customers the products they need to remain competitive,” said Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s managing director.
“The popularity of flush sash windows has been steadily rising due to its timeless aesthetics and the ability to seamlessly complement a variety of architectural styles. With more consumers exploring high-end products for their homes, demand for this window style is showing little signs of diminishing. Our increased capacity will support demand and improve our manufacturing efficiencies too.”
The Modplan team manufactures Veka Halo flush sash windows in a welded and mechanical transom options. The window sits flush within its frame and mirrors the window style of the 19th century, making it a popular choice for heritage and conservation projects, Modplan’s representative explained.
The windows are manufactured to meet project requirements and are fitted with Yale hardware, incorporating night vent function dual cams as standard. There is an option to upgrade to Yale Lifetime Security with a hinge protector, and also an option to upgrade the window to Secured by Design certification.
The windows are currently available in 30 colour options, including authentic woodgrain finishes.
“With increasing consumer demand for higher-value products, colour is a key differentiator to add value to the sale,” added Heidi. “Our colour and enhanced selection of window styles will give our customers a compelling market offer.”
The new flush sash factory plant extension is the latest in a series of manufacturing investments for Modplan. Its multi-site operation now spans 166,829ft².
Heidi said: “We continually invest across the business to ensure we deliver the best in manufacturing efficiencies. All of our fabrication plants deliver state-of-the-art manufacturing and the highest quality output, ensuring we deliver the best customer experience.” Read more about the business on the fabricator’s website.
