Upgraded slim bifolding door

Arkay Windows has launched two upgraded versions of its slim bifolding door.

As a contemporary aluminium bifold, the UniFold and UniFold+ offer market-leading performance in many areas including modern, narrow sightlines, thermal efficiency, security and ease of installation, with the UniFold having a traditional construction, and the UniFold+ offering a fully adjustable jamb for rapid fitting and adjustment, the company said.

Raju Radia, managing director of Arkay Windows, said: “In direct response to customer demand, the improved UniFold and UniFold+ bifolding doors have been designed to offer installers and clients the choice between a traditional bifold or an adjustable-jamb bifold, both with market-beating pricing. The UniFold and UniFold+ are a fantastic proposition for companies installing bifolds in the highly-competitive residential market, without any compromise made on quality, security or aesthetics.”

Both doors have the same slim sightlines, suited colour-matched hardware, and the capability to create large and heavy panels.

Nick Paraskeva, sales director at Arkay Windows, said: “At Arkay Windows, we are focused on continually evolving and investing in our products, processes and people. Our brand has come to be known for being at the forefront of innovation, and with the new range of UniFold and UniFold+ doors, our customers can now choose the bifold installation method and price-point that suit them, all with the support and rapid lead times they have come to expect from Arkay Windows.

“Both doors offer the same slim sightlines, colour-matched hardware and ultra-smooth, heavy duty running gear, and both products are capable of achieving extremely large panel sizes, fully-openable corners, and can meet PAS24:2016 for high-security.”

Marcus Bernard, director of 1st Folding Sliding Doors, said: “The UniFold+ bifold door with fully adjustable jambs is really popular with our residential customers. It’s also very competitive and affordable.”

Balraj Virk, managing director of United Windows and Conservatories, said: “As everyone’s profit margins are increasingly squeezed, we need to find ways to increase our competitive advantage without compromising quality. Despite the economic uncertainties around Covid and Brexit, we never cut corners.

“Offering high quality products like the UniFold with its competitive pricing is even more important for us. Every little helps. All our in-house fitters are very experienced (we never sub-contract and all our work is based on recommendation only). Being able to offer this competitively priced slim bifold which delivers consistently high quality has become important for our business.”

MT, director of a company based in the London Home Counties region, said: “Aluminium bifolds are increasingly popular for households. The UniFold+ is a really affordable, yet premium, bifold that we provide as part of our overall offering. The adjustable jamb option on the UniFold+ enables our installers to fit in high volumes without compromising on installation quality. Choice is important for us and Arkay Windows consistently listens to and responds to changing customer demand.”
