Meetings And Greetings For New Sash Look

The meeting rail on Epwin Window Systems’ new ultra-slim vertical sliding sash meeting rail is just 37mm deep. It will be greeted warmly by those looking to replicating the traditional sash window look more than ever before.

Phil Parry, a technical director at Epwin says: “The PVC-U vertical sliding sash window system has always been a window suited to conservation areas, listed buildings and period properties. The new ultra-slim meeting rail takes its suitability even further.”



Parry adds: “Our sash window fabricators are some of the country’s most respected and long-standing. Our internal design and technical teams drew on their expertise to develop an ultra-slim meeting rail to exceed their expectations.”


Sight lines

The new slimmer meeting rail delivers clean sightlines to maximise light source whilst still preserving the natural character of the window which is vitally important especially on heritage-sensitive projects.

Other options include a choice of welded or mechanical joint options, run-through horns, a deep bottom rail and dedicated ancillaries and end caps. 

The system is available in a range of colours including popular heritage hues such as Chartwell Green and Cream. And for a premium aesthetic appeal, a choice of five complementary base colours is available to achieve a seamless appearance, especially when the window is open.


Sizes and security

The system is a practical option for installers – the 128mm outer frame matches box sash dimensions and there’s the option of a 150mm or 210mm cill. It iss Kitemarked to BS EN 12608, PAS 24 accredited and is designed to achieve Secured by Design status so is Document Q compliant.
