Sliders UK has added the Veka Imagine bi-folding door to its rapidly expanding range as part of a commitment to deliver increased flexibility and choice to its customers.

Offering lead times of just two weeks, the launch of the Veka Imagine, gives Sliders UK a second PVC-U bi-fold system in addition to its established Eurocell Ultimate Aspect PVC-U offer and an aluminium bi-folding door from ALUK.

It also brings the specialist door manufacturers’ tally of new product launches to three in three months, having already added the PremiLine PRO patio door from Kömmerling and the Kestrel aluminium bifold to its market leading offer at the start of the year.

Steve Mines, Sales and Marketing Director, Sliders UK, said: “As a door specialist, our strategy is founded on selecting the best systems and bringing them to market. It means that we’re able to offer our customers access to one of the UK’s widest door ranges from a single source of supply.

“The Veka Imagine represents a good strategic fit to this model. It’s a really exciting product with an impressive specification. It gives us greater flexibility as a supplier and allows us to offer our customers additional choice. This flexibility is something which we believe will win them business in 2016.”

The fully suited system is available in 19 different panel configurations to a maximum of seven sashes, closing apertures of up to 6000mm wide and up to 2400mm height. The maximum sash width is 1000mm, while doors can be set to open inward or outward.

Featuring custom designed hardware from ERA, the PAS24:2012 accredited Veka Imagine from Sliders UK also delivers top U-values of up to 0.94W/m2k and an indicative DSER rating of A+13 .

Available in 18 foiled finishes the 70mm system is also available in a choice of beveled or sculptured sashes and beads.

Hinges are fully adjustable and again come in a choice of white or black, while adjustable locks shootbolts and bi-directional hook locks, also provide additional security and compression. A stepped outer frame makes the system easy to couple to exiting frames in porches and conservatories.

Mines added: “The imagine is a really well considered product and like our Eurocell offer, the Ultimate Aspect and is part of a new generation of PVC-U bi-folds to have been launched to the market.

“With far stronger aesthetics and greatly enhanced performance, including new installation efficiencies, they’re redefining the reach of PVC-U and with increased end user affordability, represent a direct challenge to established aluminium systems.”

Reports by independent industry research specialists D&G Consulting and Palmer Market Research predict that by the end of this year, volume sales of PVC-U Bi-Fold Doors will have grown to 28 per cent of the patio/sliding doors market – and 53 per cent by value
