Frequently Asked Questions About Vertical Sliders
What are vertical sliders?
Vertical sliders are a traditional window style most often found in older properties. They function similar to a box sash window with two sliding sashes that move independently of one another using a spring balance mechanism that holds the sash in place at any height. Because the sashes can slide up and down, they can be adjusted to allow the optimal level of airflow into and out of your home.
Originally made from timber, the more modern uPVC vertical sliders are gaining popularity as a replacement window in conservation and period homes. These uPVC sliders replicate the style and sophisticated charm of a timber frame but are more affordable, longer-lasting alternative and come with a host of energy-saving and durability benefits, making them a preferred choice amongst homeowners.
How do you clean vertical sliders?
Modern sliders are incredibly low maintenance and only require an occasional wipe down with soapy water to keep them looking in perfect condition. Recent updates to the design of vertical sliders include a tilting facility making it easier to effectively and safely clean the outside of the glass and window frame from inside the house.
This easy-clean function makes vertical sliders the perfect option for second storey windows and those installed in hard-to-reach places.
