Carmen Velilla, Brand Manager at Spectus, said: “The tried and tested authentic period looks of the Spectus Vertical Slider means it is renowned as the window that changes planning officers’ minds about PVC-U. The mechanically jointed version takes authenticity to another level because the 45-degree PVC-U welds on the frame and sash are replaced with 90-degree mechanical joints, creating a wealth of new opportunities to work on heritage and conservation properties.” The fully mechanically jointed version of the Spectus Vertical Slider has all the features that have proved so enduringly popular on the standard version. The mechanical joints are complemented with two sash widths that give equal vertical sightlines, plus run through horns and a deep bottom rail The choice of 28 colours from Spectus’ Spectrum range, including five from stock, increases the design versatility even further. Despite the authentic looks, the window has everything homeowners would expect from a modern window and more. In short, the fully mechanically jointed option on the Spectus Vertical Slider means the best just got even better. ‘The Humber Door’ » » AS HULL NEARS THE END OF AN extraordinary year as ‘UK City of Culture 2017’, Hurst Plastics has unveiled a unique composite entrance door that pays tribute to one of the most prominent landmarks of the company’s home city.
