Hot on the heels of its ground-breaking Genesis vertical slider, fabricator Bison Frames has just announced a new addition to the Genesis Range: the Imagine Fold and Glide bi-folding door. Mark Tetley of Bison said, “Our Genesis vertical slider broke the mould for PVCu sash windows and with the new Imagine Fold and Glide we’re are confident it will do the same for bi-folding doors.”
The Imagine Fold and Glide certainly brings something new to the market. The first thing you will notice is the aesthetics. It has clean and contemporary looks, with slimmer sightlines and flush exterior finish eliminating the need for flying mullions. The inline design says goodbye to the usual face fixed hinges and offers improved weight distribution and enhanced performance. The PVCu sash and outer frame not only mirror the appearance of the aluminium alternative, but offer a choice of double or triple glazing beads with bevelled or sculptured options. The Imagine Fold and Glide is also available in more than 18 woodgrain and coloured foiled combinations so buyers can choose the look that best suits their project.
The thermal efficiency of the Imagine Fold and Glide door is another key selling point. It offers superb thermal performance and it can achieve a U value of less than 1.0 – an astonishing figure for a bi-fold door. It has been fully tested to BS6375: Part 1 Weather and BS 6375: Part 2 Durability to add further evidence of its qualities in this area.
The Imagine Fold and Glide door is PAS 24 and Secured by Design accredited, providing a tick in the security box and proving that the door measures up where other bi-folds don’t. It also uses high performance custom designed hardware throughout for added peace of mind and carries the ERA 5 star guarantee.
The Imagine Fold and Glide bi-fold is suitable for all sectors, commercial and domestic, offering a choice of wheelchair, flush room divider and standard thresholds. Available with a maximum width of 6000mm, a maximum height of 2400mm and a maximum sash width of 1000mm. Imagine Fold and Glide is just what we’ve all been waiting for.
Mark concludes, “We believe it is important to bring products to the market that are genuinely new, different and innovative. It’s good for our business and it’s good for our customers’ businesses, as the success of our Genesis vertical slider has already shown. We are confident that the Imagine Fold and Glide is about to do the same for the bi-fold door market and are proud to include Imagine to our Genesis range of products.”
