Sliders UK - Ultimate Aspect Bi-folding DoorSliders UK, the manufacturer that developed the world’s first Secured by Design patio and bi-folding doors, has extended its Ultimate bi-folding door range – giving security conscious customers even more styles to choose from.

The Ultimate Aspect Bi-folding Door is the latest to gain entry into Sliders’ Ultimate range having been accredited by the UK Police’s Secured by Design initiative to ‘design out crime’. This means that the doors have been upgraded and tested to the highest security standards, and have proved capable of defending properties against potential intruders.

The Ultimate Aspect Bi-folding Door is a unique UPVC panoramic door system, built around a bespoke slimline profile and offering a generous size of opening that seamlessly connects indoor and outdoor spaces.

Sliders’ latest accredited bi-folding door has also been designed with hassle-free installation in mind. Features such as adjustable roller sets and hinges, large clearance areas around door leaves and having all hardware contained within its frame, make the Aspect bi-fold easy to position and adjust on-site.

The Secured by Design stamp of approval will allow retailers and installers of the Ultimate Aspect Bi-fold to give their customers peace of mind, with Sliders’ accompanying 10-year security guarantee providing a further mark of confidence in the strength and performance of the system.

Sliders UK has pioneered Secured by Design within the windows and doors industry, having joined the scheme five years ago and become the first manufacturer to attain the accreditation for its patio and bi-folding doors.

The company now boasts Secured by Design status across its entire range of products, which also includes patio and composite doors, as well as two other Secured by Design accredited bi-folding doors.

Indeed, retailers and installers can now offer their customers the choice of three stylish, Secured by Design bi-folds – Sliders’ original Ultimate Bi-folding Door, the newly accredited Ultimate Aspect Bi-folding Door and the Ultimate Aluminium Bi-folding Door, which is the only accredited aluminium bi-fold on the market. All are available in a variety of colours, finishes and sizes to suit any home or commercial space.

Ian Longbottom, Joint Managing Director of Sliders UK, concludes: “This latest accreditation means we now offer Secured by Design status across all three of our bi-folding door collections.

“It took a great deal of investment in research, design and testing, but we are very proud to have our doors backed by this highly credible scheme which aims to prevent crime. We are confident that retailers and installers will reap the rewards of offering a wider selection of stylish and secure bi-folds to their customers.”
