Emplas is offering 90° mechanical-joints on the Optima Flush sash casement, which combines a technically advanced multi-chamber PVC-U system with traditional timber sightlines.
Combined with the launch of its new colour offer adding 13 completely new foil options to its colour pathways, it gives Emplas customers access to a more flexible offer aligned to key trends in window and door retail.
Jody Vincent, National Sales Manager, Emplas, said: “Optima Flush is an increasingly important part of our offer. Demand is growing in line with increased homeowner awareness, plus corresponding demand from new build.
“The flexibility to offer a 90° mechanical-joint on the sash is important, particularly in replacements in older properties, where owners want to match to original timber windows.
“We’ve also developed a series of new colour pathways, which bring new choice and far more contemporary and subtle finish options. These are key drivers of the second time replacement market.”
Opening-up significant new opportunities in retail, Optima is designed to emulate a traditional timber window design.
This includes a defining flush casement finish, traditional top and deep bottom sash rail options, heritage dummy sash on frames with fixed lights and integrated hardware including monkey-tail handles and dummy peg stays.
With a simple chamfered finish to the sash externally, the outer-frame is available in either sculptured or chamfered finish options.
