“What a fantastic show,” says Danny Williams, MD of Pioneer Trading Company. “I don’t know about anyone else but we were run off our feet, helped by our New Wave door which was an installer magnet. At times there were so many installers crowding the door I had trouble clearing a space to demonstrate it! I spent the three days putting the New Wave door through its paces – it takes a minute or two before the penny drops, it’s so different from any other door. Then I ask the installers, in all seriousness, who’d buy a bi-fold door when you can have a ‘Slide & Swing’? And I’m selling bi-fold doors!
“The answer is no-one, because the new door is better than a bi-fold in every way. That’s where the FIT Show scores, because people can’t visualise the door. They need to see and handle it. Slide & Swing is a good description when you see how it operates. It’s far easier to take to site and far simpler and faster to install. It also has big benefits for homeowners, so it’s a door everyone wants to sell. We even had DGCOS Ambassador and ex-Crime Watch TV presenter Nick Ross plus camera crew visit to see it.”
“We were delighted by the response to our Slide & Swing door,” says New Wave Managing Director Kevin Harvey, “although we weren’t surprised. Originally the idea was to take our own stand for New Wave Systems, but at this stage we are focused on bringing out our own dedicated profiles in Aluminium and PVC-U which are due soon. New Wave fabricators can then choose to make it from Veka profile, as now, or in our own New Wave Systems Aluminium or PVC-U profile. Fabrication is as easy as making squares, and does not require much factory space. The Aluminium and PVC-U profile share the same dedicated New Wave hardware which is a great benefit to fabricators who sell both materials.”
