QUICKSLIDE’S A RATED VERTICAL SLIDERS OFFER THE HIGHEST PERFORMANCE AVAILABLE


Quickslide, manufacturers of the Renaissance Window System, has gained an A rating under the Window Energy Rating Scheme for its popular vertical sliding window, offering the latest high performance in this traditional window style.


A Rated frames are increasingly becoming the norm as homeowners become familiar with the Window Energy Rating system, which uses a rainbow chart similar to those by which consumers have been choosing electrical appliances for years. Although the minimum requirement under the Building Regulations is a ‘C’ rating this is increasingly being viewed with the attitude ‘Why settle for C when A is readily available?’


Quickslide’s A rated Renaissance windows can significantly cut heat loss and add value to a home when compared to poorer performing ones, offering homeowners with traditional properties all of the advantages enjoyed by those with more modern homes, whilst maintaining the period style.


Offering Quickslide’s A rated energy efficient Renaissance windows offers


key selling points. For example, A-rated Renaissance windows are made using double-glazed units which comprise Saint-Gobain Glass’s Planitherm Total+ glass which will soon be a household name thanks to a new consumer advertising campaign, Edgetech’s warm edge spacer bar, and argon gas. The result is a highly insulating window that has fewer cold spots and draughts, less condensation, and improved noise reduction. Furthermore, the glass isn’t tinted like other low e glass on the market allowing for better natural lighting


“Installing A rated windows isn’t just about cutting down the energy bill,”


Quickslide’s chairman, Adrian Barraclough, said. “As most people selling homes will realise, homeowners don’t always put energy efficiency at the top of their list of priorities. However, reducing condensation, cutting down on external noise, and having haze-free glazing really wins people over.”


Furthermore, installers can now turn to Quickslide to get the desirable features of the Renaissance sliding sash window in a casement window, thus simplifying ordering. “We have built quite an enviable reputation producing sliding sash windows that consumers want to buy,” Adrian said. “We have recently invested in our manufacturing facility at Brighouse, Yorkshire, to extend these qualities to casement windows. So far the response has been fantastic.”


As well as market-leading products, service also forms part of Quickslide’s offering. The company offers a ‘24-hour/7-day-a-week’ telephone enquiry service and an instant online chat facility that could be used during working hours through the company’s website at www.quickslide.co.uk.
