New product award

Express Bi-Folding Doors won first prize in the Best Glazed Doors category at the Build It! Awards.

The newest in the Express Bi-Folding Doors aluminium bifold door range, the XP Vision, was brought to market after two years of in-depth research and product development, the company said. The new offer combines strength, security, and durability with slim sightlines.

The judges felt that it was the first time they had seen bifold doors with a big enough glazed area to rival sliding doors for maximising views. The XP Vision has been designed so that it can replicate large glass panels of sliding patio doors, but with the flexibility to open the entire space for a seamless transition from inside to out.

Steve Bromberg, managing director at Express Bi-Folding Doors, said: “We’ve not been able to fully showcase the XP Vision as much as we’d hoped, because of the pandemic affecting our planned exhibitions. Despite the restrictions, demand has been strong, and we’ve completed orders for over 300 sets with really good customer feedback.”
