In advance of the launch of the Imagine Bi-Fold Door later this month, Modplan has revealed that interest in the product has been extremely high, with many leads and enquiries coming through. Chris Reeks, Modplan’s Sales Manager, said, “The interest has been phenomenal. The Imagine Bi-Fold Door represents a new generation of bi-fold doors and will set the standard for some years to come. People are excited because the door has been developed in the UK for the UK market and has been designed from the ground up with every element newly created and no ‘making do’.”
Imagine took centre stage at the FIT Show, where Chris saw first-hand the interest it attracted. “I was always confident Imagine would take the market by storm and the reaction to it at the FIT Show proved I was right.”
The Imagine Bi-Fold Door offers excellence in every area, so it’s hardly surprising that Chris had such confidence in it. Highlights include the contemporary, clean look with slimmer sightlines and outstanding thermal efficiency (it achieves the highest DESR ratings available and when triple glazed has a U value of less than 1.0). The door is fitted with custom-designed ERA hardware which is backed by the ERA 5* Security Guarantee for homeowners and the door is PAS24 and Secured by Design accredited as standard, with no modifications required.
While the door has a wealth of attractions for homeowners, installers will also find it has been designed to help them too. The option of a fully welded or mechanically jointed outerframe makes it ideal for difficult to access properties. The hinges are fully adjustable in situ, while the 2D adjustable lock means there’s no need to remove the sash to adjust it and makes it quicker to set in the factory. The corner block self-locating top and bottom hinge and roller unit mean no jig drilling and less work because the only drilling required is on the centre sash.
Modplan is amongst the first VEKA fabricators to be trained in the new door, which will be manufactured in a dedicated facility at the company’s Newport headquarters. The first doors will leave the facility in mid-July. Add Modplan’s famous commitment to service and quality control to the benefits of the Imagine door and you have a compelling package that will enhance any portfolio, which is no doubt why it is proving so popular.
Modplan manufactures and provides a comprehensive range of products that includes three VEKA profiles, a vertical slider, composite doors, PVC-u and aluminium patio and bi-fold doors, conservatories, the Vertex solid tile-effect roof and glass and polycarbonate conservatory roofs.
