Aluminium fabricator CDW Systems is set to trial the AluK Luminia F82 slimline bi-fold door with the intention of adding it to its range.
The Gloucester-based CDW, part of the East Manor Group, has fabricated AluK’s BSF70 bi-fold for many years and is looking to be able to offer customers an upgrade if they want it.
The Luminia F28 has been designed so the f rame and cill have slim sightlines of just 97mm and to be thermally efficient, claims the company, delivering a 1.3 U-value with double glazing. It features a pop-out handle that sits flush within the frame and HD rollers which allow for smooth and seamless opening.
Jeremy Phillips, CDW Systems’ group chairman, said: “We have had enormous success with the BSF70 f rom AluK but are looking at introducing the F28 due to its thermal properties. It’s a much more thermally efficient and modern bifold with better sightlines for uninterrupted views, which is what customers continue to want, and we are lining up training for that in the factory.
“It won’t take over f rom the BSF70, which we will still be offering, but we are trying to make sure we are prepared for 2025 and whatever that brings.
“We also want to make sure we can offer our customers an upgrade if they want a more stylish, sleek, and high-end aluminium bi-fold door. There will certainly be a demand for it, and we are looking forward to seeing what our customers think.”
