CPR1837 (l-r) Scott and Colin Philip of Quality Trade Windows with one of the new REHAU Heritage framesQuality Trade Windows in East Kilbride has become the newest fabricator of REHAU Heritage frames in Scotland and has invested in specialist machinery to enable it to manufacture with REHAU’s new run through sash horns.

The company previously bought in its vertical sliders but has taken the decision to start fabricating them because of the potential which exists in the Scottish market.

Lex Philip, Sales Director at Quality Trade, said: “We aim to establish ourselves as the number one source of REHAU Heritage vertical sliders north of the border. To this end, we have also formed ‘Sash Windows Scotland’ as a division of the business to highlight the product.

“We intend to extend the reputation we have built for great quality and service in REHAU casements, tilt and turns and fully reversible windows into the supply of REHAU Heritage vertical sliders.

“By fabricating ourselves, we can keep our prices competitive and of course we are promoting the fact that the windows are ‘Made in Scotland’ which is a very strong message for our trade customers to take to retail buyers.”

Quality Trade Windows is fabricating REHAU Heritage vertical sliders in white, cream, golden oak and rosewood foils as standard with other REHAU foils available to order.

It has already demonstrated its expertise in traditional properties with an installation in a large detached sandstone house in Glasgow.

The owners of the property wanted to replace timber box sashes which had become draughty and inefficient with a more thermally efficient PVC-U alternative. However, they were determined to enhance and not detract from the overall look of the property so chose the REHAU Heritage windows because they felt that they best replicated the sightlines and overall look of the originals.

Quality Trade Windows installed sixteen REHAU Heritage vertical sliders in the property and delighted the owners even further by cleaning and restoring the original stained glass and encapsulating it within the new sealed units.

Lex Philip added: “The customer focus and attention to detail which we demonstrated on this project are typical of the service we provide to all our customers.”
