New SF55v Versifold doors turns heads at Grand Designs Live
The innovative new SUNFLEX versifold door systems, the SF55v was a constant head-turner on the IDSystems stand throughout the hugely successful five days of the Grand Designs Live exhibition in Birmingham.
The brand new system, designed in collaboration between IDSystems and SUNFLEX in Germany has been created to offer a versatile alternative to standard bifold doors, with the ability to have the doors stacking at either end.
The concept, whilst simple in theory, has been trialled and tested by a number of manufacturers in the past without success, but due to SUNFLEX's advanced design and engineering capabilities has been perfected using the existing hardware of the award-winning SF55 system.
The system had its soft-launch at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show at ExCeL in September, but it was at Grand Designs Live at the NEC that the product truly captured attention of visitors to the show.
On display on the exhibition stand was a five panel SF55v system, with four flexible panels and a single door opening left. The unique nature of the versatile system allows for the four panels to be stacked to the right as per a traditional bifold door configuration, but also allows for those four panels to stack to the left alongside the open door - perfect for where your room layout requires a bit more flexibility.
The versatile nature of the product also allows for a number a range of intermediate opening configurations, including having one, two, three, four or all five doors open, allowing you to maximise your usage of the doors, whatever your requirements - and all with a system manufactured to the same exhaustive quality and performance as our standard bifold doors.
IDSystems' Marketing Manager David Clarke was thrilled with the level of interest in the product, saying "We have a proud reputation for innovation, it is after all why we called the business Innovative Design Systems, and yet again our technical team have come up with a unique offering in this market. The combination of the performance testing, quality of manufacture and the sheer versatility the SF55v brings is completely unique to the market, and that was demonstrated by the level of interest from customers at both recent exhibitions".
