INDUSTRYNEWS Looming Large »»Lumi the groundbreaking new, structurally bonded window and door glazing system from Apeer, is set to take the market by storm. Following its dazzling debut at Grand Designs Live in London, the company has been overwhelmed with leads and enquiries for the radically styled range of frameless windows, doors, entrance glazi ng, French doors and a bi-fold door system. Linda Tomb, marketing manager, said: “It was a hugely successful launch and we are now refining our pricing and ordering systems for Lumi along with our technical and training manuals and videos. “We have developed an at-aglance pricing structure where each window and price and spec is clearly presented, enabling retailers to give customers a fully fitted quote which can later go on to be converted to an order. “We have also built a training ‘house’ at our Ballymena factory where we can offer fitters hands on experience of how to install the windows. The facility can also be used as a showroom for customers and potential buyers so they can see the Lumi range for themselves and how it differs from anything else on the market.” A first in its field, the new Lumi collection is set to bring the seamless sophistication of iconic glass structure to the residential housing market. Offering a frame-free, ‘wall of light profile’ the triple glazed system is distinguished by its fused ceramic colour border. This is available in eight different exterior colours and eight further interior finishes. In development for more than two-and-a-half years, the launch of Lumi represents an investment of nearly a million pounds for the company and its first step into the windows market. As well as being available in a full suite of matching designs, Lumi has a host of construction and performance benefits such as a stormproof design with flush proportional glazing (the double rebate is completely hidden), 50mm triple glazing, (6-4-4) toughened glass for maximum insulation and noise reduction, 12 » SE P 2015 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
