Lifting expectations

Veka Group’s new Imagine lift and slide patio door can incorporate between two and four sashes; any and all of which can be configured to ‘lift and slide’ depending on the user’s requirements.

By incorporating extra large steel reinforcements within the profile, the door is strong enough to handle both residential and commercial applications.

Dawn Stockell, Veka Group’s marketing director, said: “[The Imagine lift and slide patio door offers] luxurious expanses of glass while providing ‘best in class’ levels of insulation depending on the glazing used. We’ve pushed the boundaries of what’s possible, facilitating creative door designs that could only have been imagined before.

“We wanted the Imagine lift and slide patio door to be elegantly stylish from any angle; inside or out. Visible surfaces have been kept to a minimum even in floor-to-ceiling installations; maximising the natural light let in, and creating a sumptuous sense of space. Sliding sashes close flush to the frame, and drainage has been fully concealed within the sash.”

The Imagine lift and slide patio door is available in a range of finishes (19 colours and woodgrains from Veka’s Variations colour collection) across all installation options. Aluminium covers can be specified in those finishes too. The same flexibility applies to hardware, with products from all major manufacturers catered for.
