Market leading supplier of PVCu and aluminium windows and doors for the trade, retail and DIY sectors, Warwick Developments Specialist Division, has chosen ERA as the sole supplier of balances for its extensive range of high quality sash windows.
ERA’s new TrueGlide balance has already been supplied for over 8000 of Warwick’s Spectus sash windows delivering exceptional functionality and reliability.
Following the continued uplift in demand for PVCu sash windows for both residential refurbishments and commercial real estate, Warwick required a consistent supply of high performance balances in the shortest possible lead times.
Designed and manufactured in the UK within a five-day lead time, TrueGlide offers an extensive weight carrying range between 4.5kg to 28.4kg, enabling Warwick to meet the unique specifications of each project to the highest possible standard.
Speaking of the partnership, Steve Cardwell, Production Manager at Warwick Developments Specialist Division, said: “The new TrueGlide balance from ERA delivers on performance, quality, and overall ease of use. We have used ERA’s balances for over a decade, and I can say with certainty that this is the best balance we have used.”
Providing enhanced user experience, TrueGlide enables the window to manoeuvre quietly, smoothly, and easily with the lightest of touches due to its low operating forces. Each balance also features a dual action close that prevents any sudden closure of the window or trapping of the fingers for increased safety.
With a relationship spanning over 15 years, Warwick also specifies ERA’s extensive range of gearing and Fab&Fix decorative furniture for its sash window portfolio.
Available in nine fully suited finishes, the decorative furniture includes standard and high security cam locks and keeps, handles, eyes, pulls, travel restrictors and knobs allowing Warwick to meet the requirements of every customer.
Lisa Lund, Technical Sales Manager at ERA, said: “The sole supply of our new TrueGlide balance for Warwick’s complete offering of sash windows is testament to the product’s standard of quality and functionality.
“Together, we have a longstanding relationship that is founded upon our combined commitment to product quality and innovation, and we look forward to building on this even further with our new TrueGlide partnership.”
Warwick’s transition to TrueGlide has been supported by ERA’s extensive technical support offering, with ERA’s field service engineers assisting throughout every stage of the fabrication process to help achieve the highest manufacturing standards for all weight ranges.
