After being unveiled by VEKA PLC at last year’s Fensterbau Frontale and then previewed again at the FIT Show a month later, the time has finally arrived for Glazerite Windows Limited to officially launch its new Imagine doors.
Proud to offer installers the new door with its seamless and ultimately stylish flush finish, the National trade supplier – which this February celebrates 15 years in business – has an energy-efficient alternative to traditional French and residential doors on its hands that also compliments the Residence 9 flush sash window system that the company launched back in August 2014.
Continuing to expand on Glazerite’s visually stunning Imagine suite, Glazerite Director Jason Thompson compares the design of the latest addition to another of the its popular products: “Like the Imagine Bi-Fold Door, the Imagine Single and French doors have been designed from scratch. There has been no compromise on hardware as The VEKA UK Group teamed up with ERA - one of the country’s top names in locks and security mechanisms - to design an exclusive range of hardware including hinges, locks and handles.
“As with the Imagine Bi-Fold Door System, the Imagine doors are available with a choice of three threshold options: standard, low threshold (Part M compliant when used with ramps) and ultralow internal room divider.”
Going on to add that the doors are backed by the ERA Five Star Guarantee, something found to be a major selling point for discerning homeowners, according to Jason it offers up to £5000 worth of benefits.
Triple-glazing ready, the doors come with various customising options including: a range of 18 coloured and woodgrain effect foil options; a fully welded outerframe or mechanically jointed one (making it ideal for properties with access difficulties); chamfered and sculptured sashes as well as glazing beads are available; the door to door gasket is available in white or black to complement the hinges; and there’s an option for fitting an aluminum low threshold with internal, external or both transition ramps for wheelchair access.
“The thermal performance is excellent,” Jason concludes. “This is because of the 5 chamber sash and 6 chamber outerframe. The maximum sash width is 1000mm while the outerframe has been stepped down to 70mm, making it ideal for coupling to existing frames in porches and conservatories.”
