Leading trade fabricator Modplan has just become one of the first names to achieve Secured by Design accreditation on the VEKA Imagine range of doors. Heidi Sachs, Managing Director of Modplan, says: “VEKA Imagine is one of our best selling ranges and Secured by Design accreditation means they are certain to continue being popular in all sectors of the market, not least new builds where Document Q has just come into effect.”
Secured by Design is the official UK Police initiative to ‘design out crime’ and accreditation means that products exceed the security requirements of Document Q, the latest addition to Building Regulations which covers security.
As Heidi says, achieving Secured by Design accreditation looks certain to cement the popularity of the Imagine range. Heidi reports that sales of the Imagine Bi-fold are already 40% over the total 2015 sales target. The door combines all the aesthetics of an aluminium door with the thermal efficiency and easy-to-sell homeowner benefits you’d expect from a PVC-u product. It was designed from scratch with custom profiles and hardware to ensure homeowners benefit from the latest in product design, development and technology.
The newly introduced Inline Patio is proving similarly attractive thanks to a wealth of features such as the 70mm outerframe which makes it very easy to install, especially when coupling frames together.
Heidi concludes: “We always look to ensure our products meet the highest standards and the latest regulations. We have Secured by Design accreditation on numerous products within our 70mm and 58mm ranges, and we are currently working on further accreditation to ensure the package of products we offer consistently meets the needs of installers.”
Modplan’s combination of a high quality product range and a customer-focused approach means it has a compelling package of benefits for its customers. By becoming one of the first fabricators to achieve Secured by Design accreditation on the Imagine range, it has just added another reason to the list.
Modplan manufactures and provides a comprehensive range of products that includes three VEKA profiles, composite doors, PVC-u and aluminium patio and bifold doors, conservatories, the new Open Canopy, the Vertex solid tile-effect roof and glass and polycarbonate conservatory roofs.
