Demand for Glazerite’s popular Vertical Slider window has more than doubled year-on-year in the first four months of 2013.
The leading trade fabricator has had to double the workforce on its dedicated VS line to keep pace with orders and is expecting even more growth in the months to come.
Sales shot from 991 units in January-April 2012 to 2,542 in the same period this year, with the most recent figures indicating more demand still to come.
Director Jason Thompson said they always knew the Glazerite VS had great potential but even they were surprised at the uptake:
“It is one of the best and most authentic-looking sliders, made with the best VS system but more importantly it is backed with the commitment to customer service that we have built our reputation on.
“Even so, the figures have exceeded our expectations and we are now putting all our efforts into maintaining the same standards of product and service to every customer as well as supporting further growth.”
The Glazerite VS has many advanced features including the option of welded or mechanically-jointed bottom rail as well as the choice of deeper bottom rail and run-through sash horns for added authenticity. It is offered with the choice of BFRC ‘A’ or ‘B’ Rating and is available on a ten-day turnaround.
Glazerite has always led the way in the development of the Vertical Slider. It was the first to offer a VEKA-based VS in white woodgrain – branded the Glazerite Origin – and is still the only VEKA fabricator to hold BS7950 and Secured by Design on the product.
