VBH and Invisifold hosted a stand at the recent Grand Designs Live exhibition in Birmingham to promote the greenteQ Invisifold Slide & Fold door and window system.
The stand featured Invisifold doors, a three-pane Invisifold casement window and a three-pane Invisifold conservatory window.
The show was open to the general public for five days at the end of October and was very well attended with 63344 visitors to the hall.
Many visitors to the Invisifold stand commented that they had come to the show specifically to look for bi-fold doors and were impressed at the flexibility of Invisifold. Stand staff demonstrated that Invisifold can be fully closed and secure, fully open to provide a clear opening or used just as a single sash passage door in the same way as a bi-fold or French door. VBH staff then explained that Invisifold differs from a bi-fold door in that the sashes are all operated independently and that they can also be positioned anywhere across the opening to provide ventilation without having the door fully open. This, along with the realisation that all the hardware is concealed when the door or window is closed, was the wow factor for most visitors.
Invisifold is the only system that provides a slide & fold window and VBH report that the two windows on show also generated a lot of interest and firm sales enquiries for their partners.
VBH and Invisifold were supported on the show by systems houses Kömmerling, Rehau, Selecta and Veka, and by fabricator Flair Plastic Products, who is already manufacturing around five Invisifold doors each week.
VBH Systems Sales Manager Rob Norman advised ‘Grand Designs Live gave us a perfect platform to put Invisifold directly in front of people who are looking for innovative new ideas for their self-build and renovation projects. We had an overwhelmingly positive response from the public, with visitors being impressed by the clean lines and versatility of Invisifold and the fact that windows are also an option. Many people hadn’t seen anything like it.
Our door has achieved approval to the PAS 24 security test at BSI and complies with the requirements of Document Q for new builds. This is an important consideration for anyone considering a new build.’
