C1 sliding doors bring the outside in

Our latest innovations greatly expand aesthetic choice as well as provide different floor-level solutions.

• Alternative sills present greater design scope
• New low-profile inward-opening option
• Wider choice of handle and hinge finishes

Birmingham, UK, 29 October 2012: Building on the successful UK launch of its prestigious, stylish C1 aluminium folding doors, Centor has now launched its next-generation of the range, which offers greater design choice and unprecedented performance.

There are now three additional sills available: one very low profile inward opening option, and two flat sill choices, one which opens inwards and another that opens outwards. The flat sills present a minimal lip of 20mm yet offer superb weather resistance while the low profile version is completely flush, offering unparalleled flat access between inside and out.

Customers can now also choose from a more contemporary range of door hardware finishes, including handles and hinges in matt black, matt white and brushed metallic.

Centor Europe’s General Manager, Peter Watkins, explains: “When you invest in a home renovation or extension project you want optimum practicality and style. Our latest innovations greatly expand aesthetic choice as well as provide different floor-level solutions.”

Every set of C1 doors is built to the customer’s specification and protected by either an anodised or powder-coated finish from a vast range of colours. They have a 10-year operational warranty.

Peter says: “Centor is renowned in the door industry for build quality, innovation and durability. Our move into supplying complete folding door systems combining sleek design and modern engineering has set new standards in the movement, thermal performance and reliability of aluminium doors.”

C1 folding doors received a great deal of attention recently at the Grand Designs Live event in Birmingham and can be seen and tested at showrooms nationwide. For more details visit sliding doors
