Enquiries and sales are on the rise for Hampshire-based Next Generation Windows
Next Generation Windows has reported a surge in enquiries and orders after adding the Eurocell vertical sliding sash window to its range.
Homeowners have been impressed by the fire safety and superior aesthetics of one of the most highly-engineered vertical sliding products on the market. It captures the stylish look of the Georgian era, combined with the low maintenance and energy efficiency benefits of PVC-U.
Andy McClelland, owner of Next Generation Windows, said: “Since we’ve started using Eurocell’s vertical sliding sash window, we’ve had a large number of enquiries from customers and are currently fitting numerous projects across the country. They represent great value for money and are renowned for their aesthetics, as well as providing customers with improved fire safety.”
Eurocell's vertical sliding window offers improved fire safety because, at the touch of a button, the sashes can be quickly folded inwards and down on top of each other. This helps the window comply with general provisions outlined in Building Regulations Part B (Fire safety). As long as a window has an unobstructed opening area that is at least 0.33m2, 450mm high, and 450mm wide, it is deemed sufficient as a means of escape in the event of a fire.
Next Generation also adopted the Eurocell vertical slider because it offers superior aesthetics compared to other alternatives. A combination of slimmer sightlines and attention to detail on styling, such as decorative horns and Georgian bar fixings, gives it a unique finish. This was especially important for the Hilsea company, with many of its nearby customers owning distinctive and architecturally significant properties.
Other features in our vertical sliding window include:
- An anti-jemmy bar to provide security and protection from break-ins
- A triple seal for outstanding draught proofing when compared to traditional vertical sliding systems, meaning better thermal efficiency and cheaper energy bills for homeowners
- A slide-and-tilt mechanism that allows access to the outer panes, making them easy to clean and maintain from inside a building
Next Generation is also finding that vertical sliding windows are becoming more popular by helping to keep homes cool and fresh on hot summer days. By partially opening both the top and bottom sashes, clean fresh air enters the room through the lower sash while the warm stale air exits through the open top sash. This ability to constantly keep air circulating in the room ensures properties remain cool and comfortable.
Eurocell supplies the vertical sliding system in both white and cream profile colours, along with Rosewood and Golden Oak finishes.
