The benefits of vertical sliding windows

Are you looking to add a dash of character to your modern home? Perhaps you want windows that are in keeping with the heritage of your property but won’t require lots of maintenance? Vertical sliding windows can help to blend both traditional and contemporary styles together, and we supply a fantastic range of them, here at ArcOframe.

Vertical sliding windows, or vertical sliders as they are commonly known, ooze charm and offer timeless elegance. But why should you opt for these over other window types?

Traditional styles

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your outdated windows, or you’re updating the look and feel of your property, vertical sliders are a great choice.

Exuding the same look of traditional timber sashes, but manufactured from modern UPVC frames, vertical sliders ensure thermal efficiency, low maintenance, and longevity. So, if you enjoy the sophistication of Victorian and Georgian-era designs yet want the benefits of modern engineering, make vertical sliding windows your first choice.


Although vertical sliders are pretty simple, they complement the look of your property – inside and out – and there are countless ways you can personalise them.

Many people choose to customise their windows with Georgian bars or sash horns in the corners, but this isn’t to say you can’t leave them plain or do something different. It all depends on the look you’re going for and how much space you have available.

Energy efficiency

Here at ArcOframe, we supply a variety of REHAU and Eurocell vertical sliders. These ensure good thermal insulation and offer an ‘A’ window energy rating. They are specially designed to enhance the aesthetics of your property and provide an extra layer of security, whilst eliminating draughts and rattling.


Vertical sliders incorporate a number of safety features too. Anti-jemmy bars will ensure you feel safe in your home – making it difficult to prise the window open – and child safety restrictors can be fitted to limit the opening distance of the window.

Our range of vertical sliding windows deliver the maintenance and high security of UPVC windows, without the problems associated with timber sash windows.

Low maintenance

Opting for vertical sliding windows is a great idea. When properly maintained, they have a lifespan of 60-100 years, and our experienced design team use the latest technology to weld and polish them – ensuring a smooth, seamless finish. We also make sure that they are easy to maintain, allowing you to keep them looking as good as new for many years to come. All they need is the occasional wipe down with hot soapy water and a cloth.
