Sliding and bi-fold doors in the spotlight at Arkay Windows

Installers and retailers up and down the country are now becoming well versed in offering aluminium windows and doors. Many have realised that you can’t afford not to have the option of aluminium products as increasingly more homeowners are realising that aluminium windows and doors offer a truly inspiring and aspirational addition to any home.

Aluminium fabricators have really switched on to the growing popularity of their products and today an increasing number of manufacturers are offering high-class products with lead times that can truly challenge those of PVC-U. One company that is really championing the use of aluminium is leading manufacturer Arkay Windows. Through growth built on putting its customers first, Arkay has risen to supply some of the country’s biggest retail companies, contractors and commercial installers. The company also has an ever-expanding customer list of installers and retailers that focus primarily on the domestic replacement market. These customers have been able to take advantage of Arkay’s comprehensive stock levels in multiple standard colours and finishes which allow orders to be turned around in industry-leading times.

Currently under the spotlight are Arkay’s impressive range of sliding aluminium doors. With these styles of doors becoming commonplace in domestic home improvements, Arkay has been heavily promoting solutions in this area. Their bi-fold door solution, the ‘Unifold’ is an effortlessly slim folding sliding door. It features a 120mm glass-to-glass sightline and is fully adjustable for ease of installation. As well as offering its own unique solution, Arkay also offers bi-folds manufactured from a number of leading aluminium systems; this all means that it has solutions for all budgets and can proudly deliver market-beating prices. As the premium sector is continuing to perform well, Arkay is able to support installers and retailers active in this arena with a variety of high-end sliding doors that really offer the wow factor to any installations. Wide-spanning sliding doors are all the rage in the premium sector, and help to create a picture-frame view of the garden for homeowners. Arkay are experts in this field and offer an array of different options for customers. The InfiniGlide 3 is an ultra-slim sliding door with a 20mm sightline and features a stunning finish that offers seamless transition alongside high-performance figures. Panels can be up to 2.2m by 3m and feature a fully concealable frame. For larger panels, but still with the ability to provide a minimalist appeal and slim sightlines, the InfiniGlide 6 allows for panels up to 3m by 6m with an ultra-slim interlock. For a sleek inline sliding door solution, the EdgeGlide is the perfect option. With a 60mm frame depth for easy replacement, the EdgeGlide features an ultra-slim 42mm interlock allowing for panels up to 2.2m by 2.6m per panel. Customers also have the option of a kit frame and sash for full site assembly.

The beauty of dealing with Arkay is that they are also able to offer a host of other fenestration products, they are truly a one-stop shop for aluminium solutions. A wide range of windows accompanies the doors on offer, and with other specialist products such as roof lanterns available, installers and retailers have been turning to Arkay for all their aluminium needs. An important aspect of the company’s offering is its ability to cater for the needs of all types of customers.

Managing Director Raju Radia is keen to emphasise this: “It is imperative that we offer market-leading solutions for all levels of the market. Bi-fold doors are a case in point and we offer a competitive product that really does target the mass market. We find that customers are now pushing our higher end solutions into areas where traditionally mass-market products may have historically been targeted. Homeowners are now fully aware of ultra-slim sliding doors, having often seen them in Sunday supplements, home-interest magazines and television programmes. The aspirational nature of these products is encouraging homeowners to specify them for their own projects, whether for an extension or an increased aperture at the rear of the house.” This fine selection of products are manufactured in a modern production facility that ensures items of the highest quality. The team at Arkay are driven by the needs of their customers and are on-hand to hear from installers and retailers looking for a top class supplier of aluminium fenestration products.
