Products of 2013 Folding sliding options Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems has launched its, thermally broken, Comar 7P.i folding sliding door (FSD) system, which is said to offer ‘a myriad of possibilities for commercial or residential projects’. The Comar 7P.i FSD provides a ‘moveable wall’ that allows space and light into any project. Even in the winter months the glazed facade offers light as well as keeping the building insulated through the trademarked Comar 7P.i thermal break technology. By merging robust, yet slim, aluminium profiles with ‘feature-laden’ operational gearing from the Comar 7P.i FSD system, you have the capability to design open-in or open-out stacking doors, folding and sliding from the top or the bottom rollers. To cater for different apertures the Comar 7P.i FSD offers from two to eight sliding doors in either direction with an optional rebated door for day to day ease of entry. Each leaf can be up to 1,100mm wide, creating ‘market leading’ potential spans with minimum sightlines. www.comar-alu.co.uk The Customade Group has developed a package to help its customers ‘maximise the potential of the growing bi-fold doors market’.
