Ultimate Evolution aluminium bi-fold sales top 100 frames per week | Slider UK
Sliders UK has reported that sales of the Ultimate Evolution have gone from a standing start to an average of 100 frames per week in less than two-years.
Added to its range alongside it’s established ALUK offer at the tail-end of 2016, the Ultimate Evolution aluminium bi-fold is now Sliders UK’s biggest selling aluminium bi-fold.
It features a highly innovative fully adjustable jamb option, which fitted to both sides of the door, makes squaring and setting faster – cutting installation time to as little as 45 minutes.
Steve Mines, Sales Director, Sliders UK, said: “What you get with the Ultimate Evolution are some very slim sightlines combined with considered and well thought-out hardware, which make it a very strong retail proposition.
“The other reason that we have seen the exceptional take-up that we have is the efficiency it delivers in installation with the adjustable jamb option that really sets it apart. This deals with imperfections in brick work, making it much easier to align the door correctly.
“We have customers fitting the Ultimate Evolution in as little as 45 minutes. The benefit is twofold: it saves time on site; but in making it easier to get the door square, it runs better, almost eliminating call backs.”
The Ultimate Evolution bi-fold, is available in multiple panel configurations including open-in or open-out, with a maximum sash height and width of 3000mm x 1200mm.
With colour-matched handles and magnetic door holders, a low threshold option and 30mm polyamide thermal break for increased thermal values, it is also fully tested to PAS 24 and BS6375 Part 1 Weather Testing.
Increasing demand for the Ultimate Evolution has contributed to Sliders UK’s sustained growth since it’s management buy-in in April 2017. This set the door specialist on a course which has seen it significantly expand its offer.
This has included the addition of a new aluminium inline sliding patio door, manufactured in ALUK’s BSC94 system and the new Ultimate Aluminium window.
Manufactured in ALUK’s proven 70mm Optio System, this achieves u-values as low as 1.2W/m2K. It’s also fully tested to PAS24 and is Part Q compliant.
“Aluminium is an increasingly important part of our offer”, said Mines. He continued: “We also continue to supply the Duraflex sliding and bi-folding door and Eurocell Aspect, alongside our new composite door offer from Capstone.”
The expansion of its offer and the growth seen in sales of the Ultimate Evolution saw Sliders UK post year-on-year growth of 34% in May.
“It’s a big achievement that we are where we are in a market which got off to a fairly slow start at the beginning of the year. That’s down to a collective hard work that we have put in to develop our product and service offer and most significantly the continuing support and loyalty of our customers.”
