The VEKA UK Group adds a newly-designed Patio Door to its innovative Imagine suite
April 8, 2015
The door was previewed at the 2014 FIT Show where it drew much attention for its contemporary stepped outerframe styling.
Sales and Marketing Director for The VEKA UK Group, Colin Torley explains: “With the Imagine Patio Door we’ve developed a truly versatile product – easily tailored to existing design schemes and available in 18 colours and woodgrains from the Variations range.
“Homeowners can choose two, three or four pane configurations, double or triple glazing, and internal or external sliding sashes – there’s even the option for both doors to slide.”
With this product, The VEKA UK Group offers a choice of bevelled or sculptured sashes and beads, and the option of a matching midrail – ideal for letterplates, house numbers and other door furniture.
Colin continues: “Great looks aren’t the only consideration when it comes to an exterior door. As you’d expect from The VEKA UK Group, the Imagine Patio Door represents a formidable barrier against intruders. It’s PAS 24 and Secured By Design-ready and features anti-lift blocks, anti-bump, drill or pick cylinders, and multi-point locking as standard. It’s also available with a choice of thresholds including a low, easy-access option for homeowners who struggle with mobility.
“It’s extremely fitter-friendly and, with its completely flush inner frame, provides an exceptionally neat plaster line.”
The VEKA UK Group is proud of the Patio Door’s thermal performance. Colin explains: “As with the entire Imagine suite, our Patio Door’s thermal insulation has been achieved through a range of technical innovations. Triple chamber sashes, double brush seals on all four sides and a unique quadruple-seal interlock combine to keep the warmth in and the cold wind, rain and even snow out!
This Patio Door joins a technically-advanced Bi-Fold and French Door in the Imagine range, both of which feature a stunning flush finish.
“The launch of each Imagine product has been exciting for all at The VEKA UK Group and the new Patio Door is no exception. As with every door in the Imagine range, the Sliding Patio Door spent a significant amount of time in the design and development stage to ensure it combined style, security and easy operation. We think it’s perfect for homeowners and installers, with a range of fitter-friendly features.
“We’re proud of what has been achieved with the new Imagine Patio Door and we’re looking forward to hearing feedback from our fabricators and installers.”
