Sliders UK has announced the launch of a new ultra-energy efficient aluminium window as part of the strategic expansion of its specialist product portfolio.

The 66mm Ultimate EVO XT window, is available in multiple sash options, accommodating double and triple-glazed insulated units of up to 48mm.
This, combined with its patented thermal break technologies, means that the Ultimate EVO XT achieves u-Values as low as 0.85 W/m2K – a Passive Haus equivalent standard of performance. It’s also fully tested to PAS24 and is part Q compliant.
Steve Mines, Sales Director, Sliders UK said: “The thermal performance that we’re able to achieve with a triple or even a double-glazed unit is incredibly impressive.
“We can do this because the Ultimate EVO XT features a very smart thermal breaking system and insulated foam core.
“This combined with slim sightlines, plus a wide choice of finishing options and purchase from list price, makes the case for adding the Evolution XT to your retail offer compelling.”
Exclusively available through the specialist manufacturer in the UK, the Evolution XT is tested to BS 6375 – 2: 2009 including air classification to 600pa; water tightness to 900pa and wind resistance to EA2400. It has also been fully tested to 20,000 opening and closing cycles.
Available in white or anthracite grey as standard, plus dual colour options and any RAL colour as special order, Ultimate Evolution XT windows from Sliders UK are polyester powder coated to a marine-grade finish and come with a 10-year guarantee.
The Ultimate Evo XT is also available in Golden Oak, Rosewood, Worn Ash, Teak, Cherry and Dark Oak, Decoral woodgrain options. Far more hard-wearing and robust than PVC-U foils, Decoral finishes also come with a 10-year guarantee.
The launch of the Ultimate Evolution XT sits within a wider programme off strategic product development set by Sliders UK last year and accelerated following April’s MBO.
It already includes the launch of the Ultimate Evolution bi-fold, which offers ultra-slim sightlines plus a highly innovative fully adjustable jamb option. This makes squaring and setting faster – cutting installation time to as little as 45 minutes.
Sliders UK has also recently added the new Ultimate Rooflite to its portfolio, which is based on the tried and tested BBA approved Ultraframe Classic roofing system and is suitable for installation as either part of a new build orangery or retro-fit to a flat-roof.
“As a specialist, we see it as in our customers’ and our own interests, to expand our product range, where see it will deliver opportunities for them”, continued Mines.
“The Evolution XT window is illustrative of this approach. The performance that it delivers is exceptional but as an aluminium system, and one which we’re combining with flexible finishing options, it delivers positive differentiation at a time when differentiation in window retail is thin on the ground.”
