Vuelta by Visage, the new flush sash window from Shepley looks amazing and it’s all in the weld. Visage flush sash gives the appearance of a traditional timber joint on the outside. While it looks hand finished, it has the strength you’d expect from a PVCu weld.
“We didn’t want to take a backwards step with designing a flush sash window, so we looked for a new way of welding rather than a mechanical joint to create a timber look frame without compromising on strength and performance,” says Tony Ball, Sales Director at top fabricator Shepley. “To achieve this, we needed a completely new welding process as there was nothing on the market that was up to the job. Luckily, our long-term tooling partner Jade Engineering was already working on their MechWeld joint solution. Shepley invested in MechWeld and worked with Jade to perfect this new welding system.
“To create Vuelta by Visage, Jade Engineering’s MechWeld combines four milling machines, two for sash and two for frame joints - and a two headed welder. Along with tooling developed for the process, it means we can produce frames that are both beautiful and extremely strong.
“It’s not just on the outside, the welded joint is equally impressive on the inside face as it’s almost seamless. We wanted to offer customers the best combination of stunning looks and quality in the Vuelta flush sash window.
“The MechWeld system means we can offer Shepley customers the best flush sash window with the consistent high quality and dependable service they need to sell it with confidence.”
