Whether you live in an older property or a more modern home, ECOSlide PVC-U sliding sash windows are a cost-effective solution for replacing like for like replacement or as an alternative to other styles.
Vertical sliders are a traditional style of window. Commonly found in older properties, they are usually manufactured from timber. This elegant type of window is a popular replacement in period houses, its design giving your home a sophisticated charm and style that you won’t achieve from a standard casement window. Real timber windows can be expensive so homeowners in Essex look to more affordable solutions such as PVC-U.
Sliding Sash Windows
Spectrums ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows primarily function like a wooden box sash window with both the top and bottom sashes sliding up and down to suit your ventilation requirements.
Convenient and simple to operate, the two sliding sashes within an outer frame work independently of each other on a balanced load mechanism, designed to hold the sash at any height.
Tilt & Easy Clean Sash Windows
Spectrums ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows are incredibly low maintenance, requiring only 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 your home. This is particularly useful for second storey windows or windows positioned in a hard to reach place, such as above a conservatory.
Its all in the detail
It’s the little details that help make ECOSlide sash windows as authentic as possible. Our PVC-U windows are designed to be smooth and sleek with slim profile sections giving a better appearance, which is pleasing to the eye as well as offering improved views from the inside and outside.
To complete the timber-like appearance, our windows incorporate the same stylish features found on original timber sash windows such as run through sash horns or plant-on horns if required, astragal bars or Georgian bars and traditional-style operating hardware. The jambs, sash sections and meeting rail are all engineered to look just like a timber sash window, giving you truly authentic looking new windows.

ECOSlide PVC-U sash windows are designed to be extremely safe and secure. High performance locking systems keep your home safe from potential intruders to give you extra peace of mind.
For added safety we also offer the option of a “Fire Egress” window design to provide emergency escape.
