Trade fabricator Modplan has announced it has added the new VEKA Imagine Vertical Slider to its portfolio. Modplan’s International Sales and Marketing Director Justin Williams said: “Vertical sliders are a growth market – latest figures show sales of vertical sliders to the home improvement market increased by 32% and now have 10% market share. The VEKA Imagine Vertical Slider gives our customers a best-in-class solution as they capitalise on the opportunities these statistics represent.”
The company says installers will appreciate the flush fitting outerframe that sits against existing plaster line, eliminating the need for trim or notching of plaster. There’s a choice of two cills to cater for different buildings and give more fitting options while a complementary bespoke cill coupler has been designed for a precise fit and ease of installation. A square bead makes fitting the cam catch keeps easy. A coupling nut can be used as an alternative and simpler way to connect profiles.
Homeowners will undoubtedly like the host of colour options plus the fact that the outer balance chamber is co-extruded in a black finish on all colour combinations, which makes a striking point of difference, complementing the gaskets and glass bar perfectly, even on a light coloured frame. There are also design options such as mechanically jointed sashes and frames, sculptured Georgian bars, a choice of sash horn, the option of a deep base rail and the ability to add a woodgrain texture to create a contemporary, classic or heritage look.
It is A rated as standard and achieves A+(12) at its top specification. And it has BS 6375 parts 1 and 2 for weather performance, as well as operating and strength characteristics, together with PAS 24 enhanced security performance requirements.
Justin concludes: “If you want to make the most of the opportunities in the vertical slider market, the VEKA Imagine Vertical Slider from Modplan is the answer.”
