Made for Trade pre-launched its new Korniche aluminium bi-folding doors alongside the established and successful Korniche aluminium roof lantern at this year’s FIT Show.

The new bi-folds, which are PAS24 as standard, feature pre-drilled mounting holes, a pre-gasketed composite bead, concealed hinges and crimped and PUR bonded corners, have been designed from the ground up by Made For Trade. Notable for its clean sightlines and premium aesthetics, Made for Trade says that its new bi-fold offers ‘ground-breaking’ innovations that are designed to appeal to homeowners and installers alike, thanks to the speed and ease at which they can be installed.

According to Made for Trade, visitors at FIT flocked to see both the new bi-folding doors as well as new developments on the Korniche roof lantern with the introduction of a screw port cover and aluminium cill. In addition, the Korniche roof lantern will soon be available with a PAS 24 option making itone of the most secure on the market.

Made for Trade also hosted the Korniche Challenge – inviting installers to assemble a Korniche lantern against the clock – with High Security Doors and Statement Doors winning £1,000 and £200 respectively. In a separate challenge for the trade press, GGP Magazine’s Luke Wood and Building Products Sophie Stevens came out on top, with the prize money of £1,000 being donated to GM Fundraising’s Gary Morton.

Made for Trade’s continued investment in product and fabrication techniques has brought to market innovative solutions that are challengin the standards in the fenestration Industry as a whole.”
