ROTO PRESS INFORMATION: for immediate release Roto helps to give SlidingbiFolds the edge Roto Patio Life hardware is an integral part of new products offered by SlidingbiFolds in Northern Ireland. SlidingbiFolds are an established manufacturer producing patio door sets in timber, aluminium and composite materials. Based just outside Belfast, the firm offers all-island coverage for both residential and commercial customers. They are now producing timber sliding doors incorporating the Roto suite, supplied via Roto’s distribution partner VBH. "SlidingbiFolds are at the cutting edge of innovative installation projects. We are really excited by the Roto Patio Life system and the opportunities it affords in relation to light, ventilation and security”, says SlidingbiFolds MD Gareth Presley. “Patio Life makes for barrier-free access and the design features from Roto greatly increase the number of locations in which sliding doors can be incorporated. We would encourage builders and architects interested in exploiting this new and state-of-the-art technology to get in touch with us. We’d love to hear your ideas and help bring them to life!” Whereas large timber sliders have in the past required a ‘lift and slide’ system, the Roto suite does away with the need for the ‘lift’ element. Instead, it has a special moving gasket system. The result is that the heaviest doors remain very easy to operate, even at the maximum of 400 kg. This gasket system also enables Roto Patio Life to offer a fully locked night vent position, with no compromise on security level and no outside visual indication of the door being in night vent mode. SlidingbiFolds are offering their timber sliding doors in two, three and four sash configurations, covering threshold widths from 1 to 12 metres. The door sets are also fully finished, with a choice of a translucent stain finish or a specific RAL paint colour in matt or satin.
