SLIPs can be used for many different purposes that help fill the needs of commercial building owners and managers. Unlike some alternative products, SLIPs are a premium product. They are a long term solution with little to no maintenance. This means you can keep the building efficient, keep the building occupants happy, and keep the owner/manager mind at ease. SLIPs have the ability to be installed on the interior or exterior of the sash. Standard SLIPs use a hidden balance system but on request can be rigged with vintage pocket weights.
Slips have been used on downtown commercial buildings to fade outside noise from vehicle traffic and trains.
When looking at options to update the vintage windows, insulated glass conversions is a popular choice. When doing this you’ll need to remove the original glazing, ensure a large enough channel, and re-glaze the window, this can be very costly on multi-lite configurations. Its much more cost effective to insulate all the original glazed window with a single overlying layer rather than alter the original window.
When using SLIPs, your original window will still function in the same manner regardless if its a casement or a double/single hung.
A SLIP™ protects the vintage window glass and the hours of window glazing work against the elements with a Tempered layer of glass.
While coming up with the idea of the SLIP, we wanted to keep the original window characteristics. With the SLIP™ the original sash AND glass can be kept to maintain the uniqueness and charm of the window. The SLIP is very sleek and slim to the sash so it blends right in. The product can also be installed on the interior or exterior of the sash.
Although SLIP are a long term product with little to no maintenance product, they can easily be removed.
