Epwin’s Vertical Sliders upgrade Merseyside homes

67 Vertical Sliding sash windows by Epwin Window Systems have been installed as part of a refurbishment programme of several Merseyside properties owned by North West Housing Services, a member of the Lark Lane Housing Cooperative. The properties, which fall within a conservation area, needed to be sympathetically upgraded to improve their aesthetics and provide more thermally efficient and sound-insulated windows for the occupants.

The project was awarded to experienced installer Countrywide UPVC of Ormskirk, Lancashire, who has over 20 years of experience in commercial installations. The team at Countrywide worked closely with all parties to plan an efficient installation programme which was completed over a six-month period.

The authentic heritage appearance of the Vertical Sliders met all the aesthetic considerations required on such a sensitive project and delivered the exacting standards needed to meet the thermal efficiency requirements.

The Epwin Window Systems Vertical Sliding windows were manufactured in white with run-through sash horns and chrome hardware for traditional styling.

The popular Epwin Window Systems Vertical Slider is a design classic that sympathetically captures many of the key features of the traditional window design combined with all the
benefits of a modern-day window. This includes superb energy efficiency and smooth operating balance mechanisms that ensure ease of use for occupants.

An efficient installation

With 67 Vertical Sliding windows needing to be installed across the various properties, the installation programme needed to be meticulously planned to minimise disruption of the occupants.

Heritage aesthetics and modern practicality

The finished result has transformed the properties and improved the homes’ thermal efficiency and noticeably reduced noise penetration. Paul Campbell, Director at Countrywide UPVC, said: “We were delighted to be invited to work on this refurbishment project. It’s a great example of how our team can deliver energy efficient and sympathetic window solutions for exacting refurbishment projects. We are looking forward to working with Lark Lane Housing Cooperative in the future.”
