Building on 25 years of industry firsts in the Irish window market, vertical sliders specialist Dungannon Windows is taking on the UK, with a series of unique innovations.
Based in County Tyrone, Dungannon Windows offers a unique integrated top sash fly screen, ideal for homes near water or woodland, plus an electric vertical slider that can be opened and closed remotely by people with disabilities or in high-level installations.
Also available under the Eurosash range are anti-ligature sash windows approved for healthcare buildings; dual opening sashes for maximum ventilation; and a well-established mechanically joined vertical slider offering a more authentic timber-like appearance.
Dungannon’s triple glazed vertical slider has also proved popular in Ireland, being the only vertical slider on the BFRC scale, with an overall U-value of 1.1w/m2k and a centre pane U-value of 0.7w/m2k.
The innovations are the latest in a long line of product developments from Dungannon Windows, which began with the manufacture of the first PVC-U sliding sash windows in Ireland.
The company is now fabricating over 150 Eurosash vertical sliders a week from Spectus profile and is helping trade customers across the UK to reap the benefits of buying in vertical sliders and avoiding disruption to production lines.
Company founder and Managing Director Tom Givans, explains: “Dungannon Windows offers unique products that have simply not been seen before in the UK.
“Our integrated fly screen is a great example. We are the only company to offer this optional protection from flies and other insects, and it’s proving particularly popular for kitchens and bathrooms in homes but also catering areas and canteens in schools and hospitals, where hygiene standards are so important.
“After many years of continued success in Ireland, we are keen to explore new opportunities in the UK and we received some great feedback on our specialist Eurosash products from both new and existing customers at the recent FIT show.
“With Spectus profile, we know we are using the best vertical slider system on the market and combined with our steady stream of innovations, we can help customers to maximise sales opportunities with vertical sliders and grow their business.”
Dungannon Windows also offers A rated vertical sliders, curved vertical sliders and arched heads, plus a choice of coloured and woodgrain effect foils.
The vertical slider is one of Spectus Window Systems’ most popular products, combining the high performance of PVC-U with the appearance of a traditional timber sliding sash window. The window offers full ovolo detail throughout, a tilt-in facility for easy cleaning from the inside and the depth of the outerframe enables the vertical slider to suitably replace most timber box sashes.
