South Wales-based PVC-U window and doors specialists GRM is to give customers the triple track option on its REHAU AGILA sliding door.
This will offer the large openings of a multi-fold installation with the reduced sightlines of sliding doors.
As a REHAU authorised partner, family-owned business GRM fabricates a full range of AGILA doors, including sliding, multi-fold and Passivhaus.
Since the company added the AGILA sliding doors to its portfolio last year, sales have already been extremely positive but the addition of the triple track has left GRM managing director Richard Gambling expecting an even greater market response.
Richard commented: “With the triple track we can offer large span sliding doors with the big openings normally achievable with a multi-fold door, but without as many sightlines (multi-fold door panels are normally 1m wide).
“So it’s really the best of both worlds. There’s a lot of excitement about it, and we have orders on the books already, despite only starting to manufacture the triple track since January 2018.”
The AGILA sliding door meets consumer demand for large span patio and entrance doors, which create a feeling of openness in any home. Combining supreme design and engineering to offer outstanding versatility and style, the AGILA sliding door comes in a whole host of colour laminate finishes as well.
The new triple track option for the on-trend sliding doors allows customers to choose from 2, 3, 4 or 6 pane options, opening from left, right or even the centre for complete flexibility. And as the openings are in-line, there’s no need to arrange a room to allow space for the doors to open.
As well as being stylish and practical, the PVC-U sliding doors also offer incredible energy efficiency, noise reduction and are low maintenance.
Plus, they are equipped with bespoke security hardware from ERA to meet the requirements of PAS24, including a 12-point locking system and additional corner hooks for added security.
GRM has been fabricating REHAU products for 20 years, and as the company already makes the AGILA Multi-fold door and, the addition of the AGILA Sliding door including the triple track option was a straightforward transition.
Richard continued: “We needed some new equipment to mechanincally joint the track and some basic training for our fabrication staff, but as they were already familiar with the AGILA system, it was easy enough for them to pick up.
“All in all, the triple track is a great new addition to our portfolio, which has been integrated into our operation with minimal fuss and investment.”
Clare Higgins from REHAU said: “The trend for large span doors continues to grow, and customers are now looking for the next big thing after the runaway success of multi-fold doors.
“With the triple track sliding doors, there is a huge opportunity for fabricators and installers to offer homeowners something new and exciting, and as GRM has demonstrated, it can be added to an existing AGILA offer with ease.”
