VEKA fabricator Modplan has added VEKA’s FlushSash window to its range. Heidi Sachs, Modplan’s Managing Director, said: “The FlushSash window will add even more value to our portfolio. It is perfect for heritage and conservation projects or as an alternative to aluminium, making it a very flexible addition.”
The FlushSash window sits flush within its frame, so replicates 19th century windows, helping to keep the heritage feel of older homes. This feel can be enhanced with heritage detail options such as ‘monkey tail’ handles and ornamental peg stays that are available. While offering everything heritage applications need, the window also has a modern feel to its aesthetics, which makes it a popular option for architects and specifiers looking for a cost-effective alternative to aluminium in new build projects. It is available in 19 colour options, all designed to look like stained or painted wood.
While the window may have heritage looks, the thermal efficiency credentials are certainly modern day, thanks to its five chamber construction that gives it a U value of 1.3m2k using 28 mm glazing. And for when even better credentials are needed, a triple glazed version is also available. The security is impressive too because it achieves BS7950 and PAS 023/024.
The new FlushSash window is manufactured in Modplan’s dedicated factory near Newport, Gwent with orders for coloured frames being fulfilled in Modplan’s painting facility, which is on the same site.
The FlushSash window is the latest in a line of new products being introduced by Modplan. Heidi says, “It is important to us to have product range that meets our customers’ needs. We keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to product design and we are confident that the FlushSash window will be a valuable addition to our customers’ portfolios.”
