Fabricators and installers have yet another reason to choose AluK’s tested, tried and trusted BSF70 bifold, with the launch of a brand new clip-in bead option.

The new AluK Quik Clip™ bead takes just seconds to clip securely into place, with no need for force or special tools, and it doesn’t impact on the sightlines of the door.

A key benefit in terms of installation is that Quik Clip™ works with a sliding gasket which can be fitted either by the fabricator in the factory or the installer out on site. If the glass is out of tolerance, there is flexibility to replace the sliding gasket with a standard wedge gasket, without needing to change the Quik Clip™ bead. It clips out just as easily as it clips in and there is no risk of damage to the glass.

Priced in line with the existing, standard AluK bead, the new Quik Clip™ bead represents value for money, with no compromise on quality or performance.

Russell Yates, AluK’s Managing Director, says it will save time and hassle for customers: This new bead is a fool proof design which redefines simplicity in bifold installations. I think the time that fabricators and installers will be able to save on every single BSF70 they make or fit will surprise even the most experienced teams. We’ve already had great feedback during the development and testing stage, so we plan to roll out the Quik Clip™ bead option to many of our other systems over the coming months.

The new BSF70 Quik Clip™ clip-in bead for 28mm sealed units is the first product innovation from AluK to go live since Russell Yates returned to the business in September, and is very much true to his stated mission to make AluK the first choice for fabricators and installers.

He added: Our focus is on delivering products and services which make our customers’ lives easier – whether that’s a clever innovation like this clip-in bead or operational OTIF scores which mean they never have to worry about a delivery again. We’re full steam ahead now with an exciting new product development programme and we have more new fabricator-friendly features to announce soon for the BSF70, as well as completely new sliding and Heritage doors.
