Mercury become first fabricator to manufacture the aluminium Integral bi-folding door

Mercury Glazing Supplies has become the first fabricator to manufacture the new aluminium Integral bi-folding door recently launched by Epwin Window Systems. Steve Cross, Director of specialist fabricator Mercury, said: “We are delighted to be the first fabricator of the new Integral bi-fold and know it will add value to our established door portfolio.” Steve is quick to praise the design properties of the door. He said: “Aluminium is the perfect material for bi-fold doors because it has the lightweight strength that’s required. However, the clinical lines of aluminium frames don’t sit comfortably with the PVC-U windows that are used in the majority of the UK’s homes. Integral bi-folds solve this problem because they are an aluminium door with PVC-U detailing that’s designed to suite perfectly with leading PVC-U systems. It means homeowners can choose a bi-fold door that creates the light-filled space they want without having to compromise on the aesthetics. And for installers, Integral is considerably quicker to glaze due to the flexibility and pre-gasket PVC-U beads. The door is already opening up a new level of opportunity for installers.”

Integral bi-folds come with many innovative features comprising of specifically engineered robust double-walled aluminium profiles, double hinge fixings, stainless-steel tracks and brushed rollers providing Integral with the additional rigidity to stand up to years of repeated use. They can accommodate up to seven leaves with a width of 700 to 1000 mm. Carmen Velilla, Brand Manager at Epwin Window Systems said: “Mercury is a longstanding and loyal Vertical Slider customer to Spectus, an Epwin Window Systems brand, and we are delighted they have taken on our new Integral bi-folding door too. With the design technology behind Integral and Mercury’s fabrication knowledge, we feel sure it will be prove to be a winning combination for them.” Mercury manufactures the new Integral bi-folds from its Gloucester specialist fabrication plant. All Integral bi-folds from Mercury come with PAS24:2016 as standard and are available in a choice of colours.
