Epwin’s Vertical Sliding Sash Window System selected for a flagship conversion project

When a historic mansion was redeveloped in North Yorkshire, the Vertical Sliding Sash Window System from Epwin Window Systems fabricated and installed by leading Yorkshire manufacturer Quickslide was the preferred choice of the developer, Brebur Ltd.

Featherstone Hall is an imposing mansion, recorded in the Domesday Book, which sits in the village of North Featherstone near Pontefract in Yorkshire. The hall and its surrounding lands have become the site for 15 beautiful period family homes. The hall itself has been converted into three homes, while the sympathetically restored coach house has been transformed into a charming detached three-bedroom home. Eleven new family homes, each designed to complement the hall, have been built in the grounds.

Featherstone Hall is a famed local landmark, so the conversion needed to be sympathetic and in keeping with its history. When it came to the window contractor for the project, Brebur chose specialist fabricator Quickslide, which manufactures the Vertical Sliding Sash Window System from Epwin Window Systems.

Brebur felt the system offered the best quality within the right price range when compared to similar products on the market, while Quickslide’s easy and helpful buying process was a credit to the company.

Award-winning Quickslide, manufactured 245 vertical sliding windows for the project, which were installed over a period of two years. All the windows were manufactured in anthracite grey to bring a touch of modern style to the heritage project. As well as benefiting from the mix of heritage and modern aesthetics, the homes also enjoy the unrivalled security and thermal efficiency of Epwin Window Systems’ market-leading vertical slider. The Brebur team commented on the robust nature of the windows and their style and quality when installed.

Ben Weber, Quickslide’s Managing Director, commented: “A project like Featherstone Hall showcases all the authentic quality of the Vertical Sliding Sash Window System from Epwin Window Systems coupled with the elements we excel at. Quality, contemporary windows that bring all the benefits of modern PVC-U to the traditional, beautifully aesthetic window designs of the past.”
