It is safe to say that MFT know a fair bit about bi-folding doors, having spent the last 8 years perfecting the balancing act of price, quality and service. They can now say that they are one of the largest door manufacturers in the UK delivering an ever-growing number of quality checked door sets, direct to site, every single week. Now they have got that down to a fine art they are planning on repeating the process with the Visoglide Plus sliding Patio Door.

Sliding patio doors fill the same spaces, but offer a slightly different solution to bifold doors. Sliders can be more suited to smaller spaces which might not have the room for the perpendicular stacking of the bifolds when they are open. Compact opening then, along with the advantages of larger glazed areas make them a great option when choosing between products, and customers like options! Modern aluminium sliders don’t come with any of the bulk and distortion issues associated with PVC options and the product area is enjoying a bit of a renaissance now that properly thermally broken systems are the norm.

Bradley Gaunt, Managing Director of MFT commented “As a leading aluminium systems manufacturer we often get asked for price comparisons on sliding patio doors. Historically, bifold sales have dominated the market and we favor volume production to deliver the best value for our customers. Over the last year or so though the voices asking for sliders has increased to a point where we believe the demand is there to warrant setting up a dedicated MFT production facility to supply it, and that’s exactly what we’ve done.”

MFT have invested £500,000 on acquiring and kitting out a 50,000sqft facility in Hartlepool, initially creating around 20 new jobs in the process. The new site is capable of manufacturing 100+ door sets per week, with phased expansion plans to quadruple that number as market demand dictates.

MFT’s proven manufacturing recipe comes straight from the bi-folding door factory, with 100% QC checks taking place on every completed product before it is carefully packaged, and finally loaded onto one of MFT’s next generation delivery vehicles for its journey to your site.

MFT’s Chris Wann answers the question Why Visoglide? “We chose to fabricate the Smart Visoglide Plus as the product shares the Visofold reputation for being a hassle-free trade offering, especially when it’s been precision fabricated by us! The company’s mission statement is the best products at the best prices with the best service and we always apply it with the trade customers in mind! When it comes to trade products the customers need to be confident that the product they have chosen will be fit and forget! And of course it’s got to be at the most competitive price point in the market!”

MFT’s initial trade-oriented offering will be 2 track doors of multiple configurations up to 6.4m wide and 2.5m high, this could be extended if the market demands. Stock colours include white, grey, black, dual colour grey on white and those willing to wait a little longer for their product can order in any RAL colour they like. Hardware will be offered in white, black, grey or brushed stainless steel.

The configuration options chosen allow all doors to be supplied fully assembled, unless you specify a kit form option, and can all be glazed after the door is installed as opposed to having pre-glazed panels. Glass units are available through MFT but will be delivered direct to site from the glass supplier.
