SunSeeker opens its Doors to Trade supply. Launch of new website www.SunSeekerTradeBifolds.co.uk
Press Release: 14 January 2011
Luton, Bedfordshire: SunSeeker Doors, renowned for its Bi Folding Doors System since 2003, has today launched a new service to supply made-to-measure bi folds direct to builders who want to install the doors to their own customers.
SunSeeker Doors had previously resisted requests to provide door sets only, in case poor installation by third parties might damage the reputation that SunSeeker has spent years building. However, the bi folding doors have been engineered to a point where installation is straightforward and the British-made aluminium folding-sliding door sets have proven to be robust.
Having remained buoyant throughout the recession with its keen pricing and value-for-money quality, the company has recently reviewed its strategy for going forward. Manufacturing can handle additional capacity, resulting in the launch of SunSeeker Trade Bifolds.
Additionally, a brand new innovative Frame-less 'glass curtain' door system was introduced in 2009, enabling a clearly uninterrupted view between rooms or a conservatory. This was followed, a year ago, by the launch of a double-glazed version marketed simply as Frameless Glass Doors, developed and manufactured in the U.K..
Frameless Glass Doors look similar to bi folding doors but with more glass and less of everything else, making them a far more attractive addition to the home. Building regulations for thermal insulation properties mean that the double glazing is sealed by a narrow but visible gasket. Comparing the view through Frameless Glass Doors with the view through SunSeeker aluminium framed bifolds and typical pvc frames, the area of interrupted view at the side edge of each door is 19mm, 60mm and typically 100mm, respectively.
