The UK’s successful double glazing firms choose to sell Aïr doors.

How do the UK’s longest established and trusted aluminium suppliers choose what doors to sell? Often they will sell more than one door. It is their experience over many years that enables them fine tune their product range so they sell exactly the right doors that their customers will want to buy. In choosing the right door to sell they have several advantages though experience and length of trading:

  • They have made, sold and fitted many aluminium systems over the years.
  • They have seen how basic doors have developed over the years to advanced products.
  • They know what features a good door needs to have.
  • They have a trained and expert eye.
  • They know what doors their customers want to buy.

One of these doors is Aïr doors designed and made by Everglade Windows. Whether they are sold as the only door solution or as part of a wider product range, Aïr bifolding and sliding doors are being chosen by some of the UK’s best home improvement companies.

Advantages of becoming an Accredited Aïr Retailer.

If you are currently selling bifolding and sliding doors and are looking to secure more sales with premium bifolding and sliding doors it is worth taking a lesson from the successful home improvement companies and why we are seeing them adding Air bifolding and sliding doors as an Accredited Aïr Retailer.

Aïr bifolding and sliding doors have been designed and developed by Everglade Windows. Everglade Windows are one of these highly experienced aluminium manufacturers with retail, commercial and manufacturing excellence at the heart of their business. Everglade took this knowledge to design and create Air, a sophisticated, luxurious and technically superior aluminium range of folding and sliding doors.

Aïr doors are designed from the start to be at the forefront of aluminium door design to give the trade a door of superb quality and one that gives end user customers a superior door that can provide a new dimension to their homes.

aïr MOD series windows are the latest product offering a fully integrated suite of windows. Available in casement, flush casement, steel look, tilt and turn and heritage flush, the entire system solves the many headaches associated with buying windows from the trade.

Choosing the right premium door to sell is tough.

Sliding doors can create focal points and areas of interest in many showrooms.

One of the challenges in selecting the right premium door to sell is unlike previous years, and we are today governed by regulation and specification. There is no substandard door on the market as all are required to meet either Building Regulations or other industry standards.

Therefore as most aluminium systems today are fit for purpose, designed around U-Values, have good security and meet performance requirements, choosing a premium door to sell becomes harder.

In our research, we are seeing that Air doors are finding their way into the showrooms of the UK’s top window companies. Aïr doors are sold either as the sole premium door or as part of a wider premium range. They are even being added to demonstrate the obvious differences between a standard door and a luxury door.

Why we like Aïr bifolding and sliding doors.

Air doors can offer a unique selling proposition to installers such as an industry leading 25 year guarantee

This very website has nearly 30 years experience in the commercial and residential sector at many different levels of the supply chain.

If you regularly come to our site, you will see that we report on many different systems, frequently saying that there is no ‘bad’ door on the market. What there is, however, are doors that have superb design and engineering. Often this is hidden, other times it is visible. We have studied Air doors carefully and can see the innovation, excellent aesthetics, beautiful handles and exceptional hardware that goes into these doors. They also have very impressive specifications overall.

More information about aïr doors and windows installers

For any installers looking to capitalise on the growing market for premium and high-end doors to consider looking at the Air bi-folding doors, inline sliding doors as well as the lift and slide doors. We think they are a serious proposition for anyone looking to put a premium door in their showroom and one that customers will want to buy.

I contacted Nick @ ATS for guidance on what aluminium sliding door systems would be suitable for an opening in an extension that is going to be both wide and tall. He came back really quickly with very detailed and incredibly helpful advice. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the systems on the market and their respective features and capabilities. If you’re feeling a bit lost by the overwhelming range of choices out there, I’d definitely recommend contacting him.

After a lot of research to find doors that would meet our unusual size requirements and feeling increasingly uncertain about the best way to spend our small budget, I stumbled on the ATS website, and I'm so glad I did! I contacted ATS to request advice and Nick promptly replied with a wealth of information, providing us with options and relevant contact details. I only wish I'd found them sooner!

I've been so confused about how to achieve the look I'm after, and going round in circles with various window/door companies, trying to get away from the huge chunks of plastic currently around my windows. I didn't expect an email to a company found through a Google search to really help - but I was desperate, so I tried. I'm SO glad I did. Finally I have clear explanations from ATS of where I've been going wrong, exactly what I'm looking for, and a list of local companies that might be able to provide it! The response has excelled my expectations and I feel as if I'm finally inching closer to a home with which I'll be happy and comfortable: thank you.

It is rare that I write reviews, however after my very positive communication with Nick - enquiring about suitable slim sash aluminium windows for my project, I felt that a review was definitely warranted. I can reinforce the many positive reviews posted so far, Nick was very quick to respond, providing comprehensive detail, with excellent independent advice.In summary, great service, thank you Nick.

I dropped Nick at Aluminium Trade Supply an email re high security slim sightline bi-folds and their alternatives and he responded that quickly (and so comprehensively) that I felt bad I’d not paid him for his time!Nick Sir your product knowledge is outstanding and you are providing a level of service that goes wayyyy above and beyond expectations. I’ll definitely make sure I mention Aluminium Trade Supply to anyone I encounter looking for a fenestration solution 🙏🏼

We are looking to replace some old UPVC patios doors with aluminium ones. The ATS website is a great source of advice in an area where clear information is sorely lacking. Having used the website, I then followed this up with a number of specific questions relating to our search, and Nick came back very quickly with clear, detailed and very useful advice.I have been very impressed with both the website and with Nick's advice. My only regret is that I didn't come across ATS before replacing various windows in 2021 - I'm sure it would have saved me a lot of grief and money! Thanks again Nick.

My experience with this firm was exceptionally good and this is notalways the case as a female, dipping a toe into technical waters.I was spoken too with courtesy and at a level that helped me consolidate what was needed .On top of that I was given a list of companies and places where I could obtain the type of product I needed.I could not thank them enough and would certainly go there again and reccommend others do too.
