The Genesis VS fully mechanical concept was conceived to meet the needs of the largely untouched heritage market previously dominated by timber windows. The success since it was first introduced has given Bison’s sales an unprecedented boost and shown the industry that the Genesis concept and attention to detail has become the benchmark.
One of the biggest changes in the VS market is the growing acceptance of PVC-u for use in conservation areas and in some cases Grade II listed properties. The level of acceptance Genesis has achieved amongst planning officers is hardly surprising because the first thing that strikes you is just how authentic it looks – an area where the Genesis VS has blazed a trail as a true alternative to timber. The Genesis VS window is also attracting more and more attention in the new build, self-build and general retail markets for use in modern and contemporary homes too.
The Genesis VS difference is clear to see. It uses traditional timber jointing methods on the frame and sash, complemented with other carefully-considered touches of authenticity including elegant high security Acorn cam locks, sash buttons and other complementary hardware. It has a deep bottom sash rail, run-through sash horns and colour coordinated pile seals as standard. Genesis is available in a full range of contemporary colours, heritage colours and woodgrain foil finishes.
When you combine the looks of a traditional timber sliding sash with the practical energy-efficient benefits of PVC-u, you have an unbeatable combination.
