Modplan has just announced it will be adding VEKA’s mechanically jointed vertical slider to its range. Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, said: “The mechanically jointed VS extends our VS range. It has been specifically designed for conservation areas and opens up even more opportunities for our customers.”
VEKA’s mechanically jointed VS was developed in conjunction with local planning departments to ensure its aesthetics met design requirements for conservation areas. The key joints have a mortice and tenon appearance and other features include sculptured sashes, a period Georgian bar, traditional travel stops and run through horn details and heritage hardware design. The period feel of the mechanically jointed VS is complemented by the modern day technical advantages because the window achieves a U value as low as 1.4 W/m2K.
The mechanically jointed VS’s features build on VEKA’s standard VS, which is the first choice of social and commercial specifiers in Britain and Ireland thanks to features such as traditional front to back profile dimensions that match existing timber box sash window arrangements, a deep bottom rail option, weights and pulleys that are replaced with spring and spiral balances plus sashes that tilt inwards for easy cleaning.
Standard colours on the mechanically jointed VS are White, Rosewood, Rosewood on White, Golden Oak, Golden Oak on White, Anthracite Grey on White and Black on White. Other variation colours are available on request, but have a longer lead time. The new mechanically jointed VS will be manufactured in Modplan’s dedicated factory near Newport, Gwent and will be available to customers from 1 April 2017.
The mechanically jointed VS is the latest in a line of new products being introduced by Modplan over the next few months. Other additions include VEKA’s FlushSash window and the M70 system. Heidi says, “We keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to product design and the mechanically jointed VS is just one example of our ability to do this.”
