The Victorian Sliders team showcased the firm’s PVC-U sash windows at the Fit Show trade exhibition this year, as well as outlining ambitious plans for the future. “We went to Birmingham to show the market that we’re changing,” explained Steve Winslet, the business’ group managing director.
Victorian Sliders is on a mission to “change perceptions of VS,” he added. “From 2005 to 2021, the business achieved amazing things. But we’re clear there’s still a lot of work to do.
“With support and funding from the BGF, one of Britain’s most respected investment groups, we’ve set our sights on becoming a world-class manufacturer. We want to be a widely respected, customer-centric and customer-friendly company, dedicated to constant improvement, and easy to do business with.
“In the last year, we’ve put in huge investment to start making that vision a reality. At the Fit Show, we were delighted to be able to show our customers the changes we’ve made so far.”
On the Victorian Sliders stand, visitors found windows in a wide range of colours and configurations, including products with run-through sash horns, astragal bars, Georgian bars and traditional-style operating hardware. Attendees could also view a product that had been redesigned to meet the requirements of parts L and F of the building regulations. The upgraded product boasts U-values of 1.4 and a BFRC Rating of A+, and is equipped with the maximum number of trickle vents up to 10,000mm² (EQA).
Importantly, unlike previous sash window designs that had visible trickle vents, potentially compromising aesthetics, EcoSlide overcomes this issue while meeting Part L standards, preserving its heritage charm. EcoSlide is available in a range of coloured foils and can be spray painted in RAL colours, offering versatility for housing developments. It also prioritises security, featuring toughened glass at the top and bottom as a standard feature, along with an anti-jemmy bar.
