Innovation Unlocked – Korniche Bi-Fold

Posted on: April 26th, 2021 by Chris Caley

Innovation Unlocked

 

 

We all love a little something that makes a job that little bit easier, right? Often this might be something as simple as having the right screwdriver in your toolbox, or a nifty pair of work trousers with pockets in all the right places, but have you ever thought there might be more to it than just the tools. Maybe we should all be thinking more about the advantages offered by making the right product choice for the job in the first place?

 

Made for Trade, the company behind the design and manufacture of the award-winning Korniche Lantern roof system, believe this is a really important feature that is often forgotten during the selection or even the recommendation of a product to be used on a project. Many homeowners could be forgiven for just assuming that all these windows and doors are all just the same sort of things with different names on them!

 

 

 

Made for Trade claim that their products are far from just another “insert product type here”, and that every Korniche branded system product must carry a USP that sets it apart from the crowd. They certainly achieved this with the Korniche Lantern, where their attention to detail on the design and manufacturing front translated into a product that even someone with no experience could confidently fit, but they are now claiming to be bringing a big USP into the bi-folding door arena. If they are true to their word it opens up an opportunity to use a Korniche product on a much larger range of projects.

 

Pre-Gasketed Aluminium Clip bead

Anyone that has spent any time on-site fitting an Aluminium bi-fold door will be all too familiar with the struggles associated with fitting, cutting and installing wedge gasket. It is probably one of the most time-consuming parts of the install, and once it’s in, the longevity of the install can depend heavily on the experience of the installer, we’ve all seen shrunken gaskets!

 

Ashley Gaunt, Technical Director at MFT tells us more “For installers, the big innovation on the Korniche bifold door is our patented pre-gasketed clip bead. We have paired an aluminium bead profile with a rolled in polyamide clip. Aluminium and Polyamide behave in a very similar way under temperature changes, and this is an important factor when designing a composite bead. We have also designed a custom bead gasket that is factory fitted to the bead before its delivered. Due to the way it is manufactured with a polymer backing, it cannot shrink. The new system is simple, fool-proof and truly upholds our GLAZED IN SECOND’s promise”

 

Minimal Assembly and everything included as standard

All MFT bi-folding door quotes include delivery and unless you ask specifically for kit form all doors will arrive fully assembled. Once everything is on-site it should be a simple case of screwing in the frame, offering up and packing the glass units and then “clipping” in the bead. Job Done!

 

Be the first to find out more about these ‘new’ easy to install doors and the trade marketing opportunities that feature alongside the award-winning Korniche Lantern.

 

ALSO.. Don’t miss the Korniche Bi-folding Doors featuring at the upcoming National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, NEC, Birmingham between the 8th and 11th July.

Made for Trade / Korniche – Nominated for 2021 Best Rooflight Supplier

Posted on: March 9th, 2021 by Chris Caley

 

Korniche / Made for Trade have been Nominated for the 2021 ‘Best Rooflight Supplier’

 

Korniche / Made for Trade are extremely proud to have been shortlisted for ‘Best Rooflight Supplier 2021’. The team believe the Korniche Roof Lantern is one of the best Lanterns on the market. In 2021, the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern continues to thrive in sales. Despite a turbulent 2020, Korniche Aluminium Systems / Made for Trade continue to work hard to deliver an outstanding level of service to all trade partners. With a substantial investment in fleet of delivery, Korniche / Made for Trade are thinking ahead to the future.

The award winning slimline Korniche aluminium roof lantern provides a traditional timber look with all the advantages of a thermally broken aluminium construction. Precision engineering, optimisation and modern manufacturing techniques have created a beautifully proportioned, thermally efficient, strong and secure lantern solution ideal for flat roof home extension projects.

The Korniche is the definitive lantern solution – beautiful from both the inside and out delivering great aesthetics for modern and traditional settings. Providing internal elevation and architectural interest through slim spas and ridge the Korniche has various structural combinations that will suit most projects in need of delivering as much light as possible into a home.

Thermal efficiency has been guaranteed by the elimination of cold bridging, achieved by isolating of the external profiles from the internal ones. Combined with high performance glazing, the Korniche’s ability to reduce heat transfer is in a class of its own.

Strong and secure – Korniche has been optimised to create the strongest and stiffest roof lantern possible with minimal structure to obscure views. Unparalleled in strength, the Korniche can survive whatever nature throws at it. Put into perspective a 6m x 4m Korniche roof can support over 8 tonnes.
