There was a real buzz around Quickslide’s ‘Engineering future innovations’ stand at this year’s FIT Show, as visitors flocked for the exclusive unveiling of the newest incarnation of its flagship Legacy vertical slider, which was revealed for the first time at the show.
Featuring refined run-through horns and a new slim-line meeting rail, the enhanced Legacy VS will be available later this year. At just 37mm, the slim meeting rail is over a centimetre narrower than its standard counterpart and one of the slimmest and most traditionally styled on offer.
“Period detailing such as timber-look mechanical joints, seamless run-through sash horns, an authentic curvy ovolo frame and deep bottom rail make the Legacy VS almost indistinguishable from the traditional timber designs on which it is designed,” said Quickslide’s Managing Director Ben Weber.
“With this new slim-line meeting rail and the improved run-through horns it will be even harder to spot the difference between our Legacy VS and an actual timber sash window.”
A representative from Mighton, which has partnered with Quickslide, was also on hand at the stand, with information about Avia’s secure intelligent sash fastener that has been launched as part of the Legacy VS range. Designed especially for sash windows, this lock can now be requested as part of the initial window spec. It enables homeowners to tell at a glance of their phone whether their windows are locked or unlocked, and alerts can be set up to be sent to Apple devices, providing peace of mind away from home.
Visitors were also able to find out about Quickslide’s new dual foils for sash windows, as well it’s new aluminium offerings, including heritage doors, AluSpace’s super slim aluminium interior door system and Indi-fold, the versatile aluminium slide-and-stack door system exclusive to Quickslide.
Ben said: “This year’s FIT Show was hugely successful and enjoyable, welcoming so many familiar and new faces to our stand to see the future of fenestration.
“Our big news was the unveiling of our new, enhanced Legacy VS – but the whole show itself is a real legacy in our industry and always a highlight in our calendar. Well done to everyone who once again made the FIT Show such a great event.”
