GLAZERITE GAINS ANOTHER FIRST WITH VEKA BI-FOLD DEBUT
Glazerite Windows Ltd is once again at the forefront of product innovation and is delighted to offer its installers the new VEKA Imagine bi-fold door. The trade fabricator will showcase this new product to the industry with a debut on its stand at this year’s FIT Show.
The Imagine bi-fold is being launched in response to industry forecasts that PVC-U bi-folds will account for over a quarter of the patio/sliding doors market – and over a half by value – by 2016. It is also hailed as the first product to come out under the VEKA UK Group banner and will be backed by an extensive marketing programme from the system supplier.
Glazerite Director Jason Thompson said: “We were already fully aware of the growth and further potential for bi-folds so when we saw the VEKA product, we knew it was a winner. This is a completely bespoke new system, with every profile made specifically for this product and in our view it is the best available today. It has already achieved Secured By Design status and Glazerite are currently one of only three UK fabricators to hold this much sought-after accreditation on bi-folding doors.
“We can guess that other fabricators will follow our lead but anyone wanting to see it first will have to come and see us on Stand 164.”
Imagine from Glazerite is available in fully sculptured or bevelled, with up to seven sashes on a maximum 14 configurations, opening inside or out. It is also the only bi-folding door system to offer all three threshold variations: standard, Part M (wheelchair) compliant or ultra low as in internal room divider.
It was also developed in association with lock manufacturer ERA and comes with a five-star security guarantee including 24/7 help, up to £1,000 excess back-up on home insurance, up to £1,000 towards repair or replacement and £1,000 inconvenience compensation in the event of a lock component failing.
The Imagine bi-fold is only one of a number of new products due to be unveiled at the FIT show, including some that will remain under wraps until the show begins.
Glazerite is the largest trade fabricator of the VEKA systems in the UK and also a prominent Network VEKA member, with a reputation for unsurpassed customer service as well as a comprehensive product range. The company offers a fully nationwide service based on manufacturing units in Northants and Greater Manchester and a distribution hub in Bristol.
