New Timber Composite For Ireland

July 25th 2014

Solidor and Profile Systems have reached an exclusive agreement where Profile Systems, Ireland's leading systems distributor, will manufacture and distribute full timber composite door kits for the whole of Ireland.

Profile Systems are Ireland’s leading distributor for PVCu and aluminium window and door systems. Based in County Kildare and established in 1978, they have been a proud and successful partner for the KBE and Kömmerling brands for nearly 20 years and have now put into place an exclusive long-term agreement with Solidor for the distribution and manufacture of timber composite door kits for Ireland.

In the UK, Solidor has taken the composite door market by storm, launching industry firsts with great regularity, while sales growth has shown that they are one of the fastest growing companies in the glass and glazing industry at the trade level. While trade installers and consumers are bowled over with the product features and marketing expertise, the company now feels that they can offer the Irish market a better composite door offering through Profile Systems.

The agreement between the two companies also continues the Kömmerling link and the proposition of the first premium timber composite door offering that’s manufactured in Ireland. The availability of 17 through colours inside and out, rather than an inferior surface paint finish is an important feature, along with the green credentials of a fully recyclable slab, a comprehensive 12 year warranty and a number of exclusive hardware options.

There are also 9 different foiled finishes of outerframe, which perfectly match the foiled exterior of the solid hardwood core composite door slabs. One of the most impressive technical developments yet for the timber composite door market is the 62mm Solidor slab, which will be offered to the Irish market with a KBE System 88 frame, offering an impressive 0.9 W/m2K U-value.

Peter Kenny, managing director of Profile Systems commented: “We have watched the development and success of the Solidor range over the past few years and feel the market conditions and time is right to launch what is widely regarded as the best timber composite door in the UK. Interest is already high among our nationwide network of fabricators and installers and we look forward to a great partnership between our two companies in the coming years.”

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group concludes: 'The opportunity for us to work with Profile Systems is good for both parties. We know about 2nd generation composite doors, while they clearly know and are respected in the Irish market.'
