Express Trade Frames in Fleetwood, Lancashire, is the first fabricator of Exlabesa’s new Xlafold aluminium bifold door system that was recently launched. And one of Express Trade Frames’ first installations was suitably high profile – EFL League One football team Fleetwood Town FC.
Express Trade Frames had undertaken work for Fleetwood Town FC in the past and the quality of their workmanship meant they were first in the queue when the team needed to replace eight glass sliding doors at its ground.
Express Trade Frames recommended using the Xlafold bifolding door system from Exlabesa for the project. It has the classic slim sightlines of an aluminium bifolding door and is available in sculptured or square sash options. It has a typical U value of 1.5 W/m2K and has PAS 24 accreditation, so it offers exceptional thermal efficiency as well as meeting the requirements of Document Q of Building Regulations.
The company manufactured the doors in its new aluminium fabrication plant and installed them at Fleetwood Town’s ground over a period of five days.
Scott Law, Express Trade Frames’ Director commented: “We have only recently added the Xlafold bifolding door to our fabrication set-up and we were delighted that our local football team was one of the first projects we used it in.”
The decision to add the Xlafold system to the Express Trade Frames’ portfolio was simple, says Scott: “We have recently set up a new aluminium plant to complement our strong PVC-U offering. We approached other companies on the market about their bifold doors, but the Exlabesa system and attitude was superb and we felt they were the right choice for us. The Xlafold system is easy to manufacture and easy to install. The sightlines and overall product finish is excellent – basically, it does everything Xlabesa says it will.”
The Xlafold bifolding doors have given a new lease of life to the restaurant overlooking Fleetwood Town’s training facilties. Scott concludes: “We have been delighted with Exlabesa and Fleetwood Town are delighted with their doors.” Happy customers all round!
