Orders on the increase

Aluminium trade fabricator, Fentrade, has revealed a rise in demand for its aluminium inline slider since the industry returned from lockdown.

Chris Reeks, director of Fentrade, said: “We have been delighted to see demand growing as the country opens up after lock-down. Our trade customers tell us the trend for creating large expanses of glass is still as popular as ever and this is translating into an increase of orders being placed for our aluminium inline slider.”

According to Fentrade, its aluminium inline slider is perfect for use in domestic and light commercial applications while its ‘elegant good looks’ and ‘design flexibility’ make it a very attractive option.

There is a choice of single, double or triple track systems, all with multiple sliding configurations. There is a choice of inline or lift and slide available in a range of single, dual and anodised colour finishes. Sashes can be up to 3,000mm in height while sightlines as slim as 45mm maximise light transmission. There are square or bevelled beads plus reinforced interlock sections for when the elements dictate more strength is required.

Thermal performance is said to be excellent, with ‘U’ values as low as 1.6 W/m2k achievable for the double-glazed version and 1.4 W/m2k for the triple glazed. Multipoint locking ensures security.
