Mercury reports 19% increase aluminium sales thanks to Visofold bifold door

Leading specialist fabricator Mercury Glazing Supplies Ltd has reported a 19% increase in Aluminium sales, based on the same period in 2017, attributed mainly to the Smart’s Visofold Bifold Door. The growth in sales is as a direct result of increasing demand from their customers who have witnessed a significant growth as the door becomes the designer’s product of choice.  Chris Reeks, Mercury’s Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “Watch any home design programme and you are sure to see a Bifolding door.  Because of their construction and ease of use, Bifold doors are ideal for both homes and commercial properties that want to turn the outside space into another useable room. Just take a look at the recent installation by our customer Future Rooms with one of their bespoke garden rooms! The popularity of our Bifold door is showing little signs of slowing down with larger more complex doors being the order of the day.”

The Smart’s Visofold 1000 aluminium Bifold door offers elegant slim sightlines coupled with highly engineered hardware and a choice of colour options for personalisation. It features a polyamide thermal break that enhances the thermal performance of the profile and improves the overall U-value. It complies with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010 and a Document Q specification means it can be used in new builds too.  Chris said: “Doorsets in accordance with PAS24 are being requested by our customers who work in the new build and refurbishment markets.  Our Bifolds are designed to meet this criteria and are fully compliant.”

Mercury has been fabricating the Smart’s Visofold 1000 Bifold since 2013 and is delighted by the integrity of the product.  Chris said: “Our Smart’s Bifolds are manufactured using materials sourced solely from Smarts and adhere to their strict manufacturing requirements to ensure the product is fully warranted and meets with their own exacting standards.  We fully fabricate every door before packaging and delivery so it’s ready to install direct on site.  It’s something our customers appreciate as a recent first-time customer commented that it was the best Bifold he had ever fitted!” 

 Mercury’s service enhances the Bifold’s already impressive credentials. The company offers a ten working day turnaround on stock colours, which are White, Anthracite Grey and Anthracite Grey on White. 

Mercury’s name has been built on offering the specialist products and customer-focused service that adds value to installers’ portfolios and the continued growth in their sales demonstrates this is an effective formula.
