DOORS&WINDOWS PURR-FECT PATIO PARTNER Kömmerling has partnered up with patio and bi-folding specialist KAT UK for the introduction of its highly acclaimed PremiDoor patio door, which boasts supersize sash sizes and market leading levels of energy efficiency. KAT has a long and impressive track record in manufacturing premium patio and bi-folding doors in aluminium, PVCu and timber and this latest addition will add to their reputation as a specialist fabricator of door systems. The door that will be branded as KAT’s Lift and Glide patio door, can achieve a 6 metre opening with just two sashes and can even span over 10 metres with up to 4 sashes. The Lift and Glide door offers outstanding thermal performance, including a thermally broken running track and benefits from a German hardware system that enables the sashes to glide effortlessly to the side. Low line gaskets and weatherseals provide lasting performance and slimmer sightlines, while the single leg glazing bead is highly secure and easy to install on site. The Lift and Glide door is a genuine alternative for a bi-folding door and with less PVCu sightlines, and more glass in which to see the world outside. For KAT UK, visit, e-mail or call 01625 439666.
