Profile 22 has recognized the increasing trend towards high specification composite doors and will be showcasing a range of timber core composite doors from sister company, Safedoors, that have been developed to blend in and work perfectly with the full Optima suite. Available in a wide range of unique styles and colour options, these doors will be available to buy as door leafs or fully finished doorsets. Optima window development continues with the introduction of a fully mechanically jointed version of the Flush Casement, a product that drew immediate praise when it was introduced as part of the Optima launch. Now offering an even more authentic appearance this option is expected to become more popular than ever.
