23 Doors Inspires Gasketed Bead

Alunet Systems launched its pre-gasketed clip-in bead for its BF73 system to save fitters time during installation. The move was inspired by working with a company called 23 Doors – which has operated in Manchester since 2021.  

23 Doors started manufacturing bi-fold doors using the bead in 2023. The feedback from their installers has been very positive, with some saying they have noticed improvements in use and a significant reduction in installation time per pane.

23 Doors has created a comprehensive guide and instructional video for the clip-in bead design, now accompanying every bi-fold door via a QR code.

Peter Colclough, the co-Founder of 23 Doors says: "I would recommend the new clip-in bead design to any manufacturer and installer. Now that we have the new product, we can remain competitive and continue providing as swift an installation service as possible."

Steve Kendrick, MD of Alunet Systems, says: “23 Doors have always been a really valued customer of ours. We understand that as their sole supplier, they deserve the best from us. I’m really happy with how they have received the clip-in bead design, because their response is why we developed it. Alunet Systems is all about innovation. This feedback from 23 Doors has demonstrated that we’re continuing to achieve our aims.”
