Apeer is celebrating the biggest order to date for its Lumi seamless window and door system, and despite the company being close to completing its UK-wide installer network, the £70,000 order is for a project just half a mile from its Ballymena HQ and factory.
The large bespoke new-build house will include a number of windows, Lumi doors and sliding doors, all in the radical new system. Construction on the house began in September and is expected to be completed by late August 2016. The system was first suggested to the property owner and the architects by local installer T&L Frames, which had experience of Apeer through installing the company’s existing Apeer door range.
Jason Fleck of FmK Architecture said: “This is an absolutely unique system and ideal for this house. We have since shown it to a number of clients and will go on suggesting it in locations that suit this style and budget.”
Apeer Marketing Manager Linda Tomb said: “There has been a tremendous reaction to Lumi since its launch which has led to a good many orders and this is the first one on this scale in our local market. It is ironic that it should be so close to our base, though it’s quite discretely located so we won’t actually be able to see it.
Lumi took the Grand Designs Live show by storm in May when it was launched to widespread acclaim. The range includes windows, doors and a matching bi-fold system. The sliding doors, as chosen for this unique house installation, will be fully introduced early in 2016.
The Lumi system is the latest range from Apeer, which also includes its Traditional, Contemporary and the ultra-contemporary Modo composite door collections.
