42 DOORS AND COMMERCIAL ENTRANCES Suite dreams are made of this The Veka UK Group’s sales and marketing director, Colin Torley, explains how the Imagine suite of doors is shaping up to be one of the company’s most significant product Imagine a bi-fold system designed from the ground up – with a French door to take your fancy and a sliding patio door that's been redesigned to meet customer feedback! When we officially unveiled the Imagine bi-fold door system at last year's FIT Show, we knew it would make waves. This is a product that has been completely re-designed, ‘reimagined’ if you will, and the results are fantastic. “we expected the Imagine bi-fold door to be the ‘star of the stand’ at the FIT Show” Our technical team went back to the drawing board to create a system that didn't have any of the ‘compromises’ you might have come to expect on a standard bi-fold. It has bespoke components, new security mechanisms and hardware integrated into the profile instead of having to be bolted onto the outerframe. The Veka UK Group is carrying the hardware as well as manufacturing the profile for the first time ever, so the Burnley HQ now acts as a ‘onestop shop’ for all your bi-fold requirements. The Veka UK Group teamed up with ERA to offer the highest level of security and the benefit of the ERA Five Star Guarantee for homeowners. The system can achieve the PAS24 and Secured by Design accreditations as standard, with no need for additional modification and is available in numerous different configurations. As I say, we expected the Imagine bi-fold door to be the ‘star of the stand’ at the FIT Show because we knew we had something special on our hands. When it came to the event, we were also overwhelmed with the response we received for our new Imagine French door and sliding patio door. The French door has already been extremely well received! Installers have been impressed by its flush finish and numerous fitter-friendly benefits. With our customers in mind, we designed the Imagine French door system to offer simple fabrication and fitting. It has a range of installerfriendly benefits, including fullyadjustable hinges, 2D adjustable lock keep and the option of a mechanically-jointed outerframe. With its unique flush finish, the Imagine French door is a stunning alternative to traditional French doors and is available in a wide range of colours and woodgrains from the popular Variations colour range. Another feature that makes it quite unusual is the way the doors butt together with no obtrusive central pillar or false mullion. Now that we have officially launched both the Imagine bi-fold door and flush French door, we're looking forward to seeing our technically-advanced sliding patio door complete the suite when it’s launched in the next few months. This ‘smooth operator’ has the option for a mid-rail, so homeowners can choose to have letterplates etc. Like the other products in the Imagine range, the sliding patio door combines style, security and thermal performance. As the first suite of products officially launched under The Veka UK Group branding, we're extremely proud of the Imagine collection which has a door for every application. The Veka UK Group has long been known for providing the ‘perfect product for every project’, and this new suite of doors is a further demonstration of our commitment to providing customers with everything they need in such a competitive marketplace. developments in recent years. www.ggpmag.com February 2015
