After it made such a huge impact when it was previewed at the FIT Show, the door which AluK says will become the new benchmark in the bi-fold market has officially been launched.The Luminia F82 bi-fold is the flagship product in AluK’s premium Luminia range, and is now available exclusively from a network of Luminia Select Partners across the UK.
The F82 ticks every box for the homeowner and developer offering contemporary slim sightlines, effortlessly smooth operation, stylish hardware and low U-Values. Crucially, AluK says that it also allows installers to differentiate their product offering from both the me-too doors in the mass aluminium bi-fold market and the less streamlined alternatives.The F82 has slimmer sightlines than other doors available, but more importantly offers bigger expanses of glazing, thanks to slim, symmetrical sightlines on the frame, cill and jamb of only 97mm.
The contemporary look created by these uniform sightlines extends to the bespoke flush hardware designed and developed just for this door. This includes a new flush pop up T-handle, unique to AluK, which removes the need to add unsightly surface mounted door handles. There is also a flush handle for the traffic door, and specially designed, heavy duty rollers which deliver effortless operation. The F82 has achieved PAS24 accreditation at 2600mm wide, meaning that it can be installed in new build properties where Approved Document Q is required.
