Emplas Unveils New Aluminium Bi-Fold

Emplas has added to its vast product range AluK’s contemporary F82 Luminia Aluminium Bi-Fold Door. 

We launched the next generation of aluminium bi-fold door as a premium offer, delivering a significantly enhanced performance and aesthetics and with it, opportunities to tap into higher margin sales. 

This includes class-leading thermal performance with U-values of 1.4W/m2K with a double glazed unit and as low as 0.9 W/m2k when triple glazed. 

Capable of spanning larger spaces, while maximising glazing panels and with symmetrical sightlines on the frame, it’s also fully tested to PAS24 and Part Q.

John Leary, sales and marketing director at Emplas, said: “The F82 Luminia is an incredibly well-considered bi-fold in each and every element of its design. The standout features, however, are the U-values it achieves.

“If there is a single obstacle to growth in aluminium, thermal efficiency is it. Luminia offers U-values as low as 0.9 W/m2K with a triple-glazed unit and 1.4 W/m2K with a double glazed unit. That’s a very strong message in new build, as well as retail.

“With symmetrical sightlines on the sash, contemporary hardware and able to span larger distances, it’s a completely new generation aluminium bi-folding door, which delivers exceptional USPs at the point of retail.”

This includes slim, symmetrical sightlines on the frame, cill and jamb of only 122mm on the door meeting. Luminia also features a contemporary flush traffic door handle, in addition to AluK’s patented flush ‘T’ handle. This foldable handle allows for the homeowner to enjoy a wall of glass when the door is not in use.

It’s not just in style that the Luminia delivers, but also on substance, with a maximum individual leaf width of 1200mm. Heavy-duty rollers deliver effortlessly smooth operation, while sashes accommodate individual sash weights of 150kg.

We supply it in white, grey, brown and black as standard, plus any RAL colour on special order. All finishes feature a flash anodised pre-treatment ahead of powder coating, delivering improved protection from corrosion. The colours in these doors come with a 10-year guarantee.

John continued: “This is another really strong selling point for the Luminia. When you flash anodise, you create a protective layer of aluminium oxide on the surface of the profile, which not only contributes to a higher quality powder coating but also marine-grade finish, as standard. It’s a unique capability in the UK to AluK.

“Aluminium bi-folds are a growth sector. The AluK Luminia F82 Bi-fold delivers a series of USPs to the end-user, from advanced thermal efficiency, the symmetry of its design, through to the exceptional quality of, and supply with, a marine-grade finish as standard.

“It’s a door designed to command greater profit margin.”
