Versatal Vertical Slide Window
The Versatal Vertical Slide Window is available in a large range of standard sizes, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding the right side for your van or RV. If our stock sizes aren’t suitable for your vehicle, however, just give us a call or send us an email and we can organise that for you.
Versatal is a Canadian company that’s well known for manufacturing high quality toughened glass windows. These windows actually exceed both Australian Standards and European ADR Standards, so they are good to go on your vehicle. They can be used on either the driver or passenger sides of your vehicle, making it easy to order two windows without being confused about which side they fit.
Features of your Versatal Vertical Slide Window
Each Versatal Vertical Slide Window comes with two inbuilt weep holes along the bottom edge of the frame to drain rain away from the window. There’s also a weather flocking strip that runs down the middle of the window to give the interior of your vehicle protection against dust and rain whether you’re parked or driving. The windows are lightly tinted to reduce glare and heat and provide an increased level of privacy inside your vehicle. There’s also a high quality flyscreen that’s easy to clean and can be removed temporarily if you want to use the window as a pass-through or servery window.
The locks are high quality and won’t open accidently during transit (they only open when you manually activate the locks). The easy grip handles allow you to open and close the sliding window smoothly, and the frames are available in a range of colours. Black is the standard colour, but you can also have white or grey, and we can colour match the frames for you as well.
The Versatal Vertical Slide Window is made from durable aluminium and composite materials and snap and fit components. This is a quality product with a smooth and flush finish that looks great when fitted in RVs, caravans, buses, and other recreational vehicles.

Easy to install
These windows are very easy to install due to the clamping frame that can fit a range of wall thicknesses, from 0 to 65mm, as follows:
- 0 mm to 15 mm
- 15 mm to 28 mm
- 28 mm to 40 mm
- 40 mm to 53 mm
- 53 mm to 65 mm
If you let us know the thickness of your wall, we’ll provide a clamping frame to suit. When you receive your Versatal Vertical Slide Window, you can just pop off the clamping frame and you will see the neoprene foam gasket that runs all the way around the inside of the window. This high quality foam gives you an additional level of protection from the elements as it creates a watertight seal against the wall of your vehicle.
Remove the old screws from around the perimeter of the old window and pull off the inside frame or clamp. To order your new window you need the width and height of the window opening (not the size of the window itself), as well as the depth of the window (thickness of the wall); the corner radius of these windows is 76.2mm. Once you have your new Versatal Vertical Slide Window to hand, carefully break the seal on the exterior of the old window and remove it (keep the window open so you can hold it when it comes loose).
If there is any old sealant around the opening, make sure to remove it and clean the area with spirits so that it’s free of any residue. Dry fit the window (minus the clamping frame) into the space making sure that it fits correctly. There should be some slight play in the space but use plastic shims if needed, making sure that the space is the same all the way around the window. Apply double sided tape around the edges of the window starting and ending on the bottom of the window with a 2cm overlap and removing the backing tape as you fit the tape (this makes it easier to fit around the corners)..
Lightly spray this tape and the exterior wall of the window space with water. This allows you to adjust the position of the window for a perfect fit, before the tape sticks too quickly (this water will evaporate and give you a watertight seal). Without pressing the frame hard against the wall, gently place the Versatal Vertical Slide Window in the space and once it’s centred correctly with the same amount of space all the way around, push in from the outside pressing the foam tape firmly against the wall. Install the interior clamping frame using the correct screws, starting with the corners, and working your way inwards. Wipe any remaining water away and you’re done!
Do you need a custom Versatal Vertical Slide Window?
If our standard size widths and lengths aren’t suitable for your vehicle, we can organise a custom window that’s designed to perfectly fit your window opening. Even if you need a custom sized sliding window, it’s usual that one clamping frame will suit the thickness of your vehicle’s wall. If not, we can customise these frames as well.
When you need a high quality waterproof window for your recreational vehicle, the best on the market is the Versatal Vertical Slide Window. They are not only high end, but also very affordable, look fabulous and are easy to install. If you want to give your vehicle a new makeover, replacing the old windows with these Versatal sliding windows will make a huge difference to its appeal.
