Ballymena, Northern Ireland–based door and window manufacturer Apeer has been chosen as a finalist in this year’s G Awards, the prestigious and highly sought after window and door industry ‘Oscars’.
Selected in the popular New Product of the Year category by the judges for its Lumi window and door system that was launched earlier this year, Apeer’s managing director Asa McGillian says that word spread ‘like wildfire’ through the factory when the news was announced: “The hearts and souls of everyone at our factory have gone into Lumi,” said an ecstatic Asa. “This is the first time that we have entered the G Awards but I have watched people go up to collect their Awards on the night and wondered what that must feel like. I hope I will find out but I imagine it must be nerve wracking waiting to hear!”
Lumi is a groundbreaking new range of customisable, matching frameless windows and bi-folding, patio and residential doors. The secret to Lumi’s superb aesthetics, performance and strength is the triple glazed units that are bonded to an internal core of high-strength glass reinforced plastic (GRP) frames, the external pane of which offers uninterrupted, edge-to-edge glazing. The system is a radical new approach for residential windows and doors.
The winners of this year’s G-Awards will be presented at the highly popular, glittering ceremony, which will take place on November 27th at the Hilton Hotel in London’s Park Lane.
