These innovations have been designed to deliver the same FASTER, STRONGER, WARMER and SLIMMER advantages which provide tangible benefits for every link in the forward supply chain.
INTRODUCING THE KORNICHE ALUMINIUM BI-FOLDING DOOR SYSTEM
FASTER – means less time on site instantly reducing project costs, faster is also ease of fit as well as outright speed. Easy installation is becoming increasingly important as the skills pool becomes shallower, and a simple installation process opens supply opportunities for multiple trades.
STRONGER – means exceptional resistance to loads, like weather, in-service loads and resisting unwanted visitors. A strong product will last the test of time and require minimal adjustment over its life.
WARMER – means high thermal efficiency and class leading sealing technology minimising heat transfer from outside to inside and vice versa.
SLIMMER – means low sight-lines on the profile as well as a reduction in visible parts that make up those sight-lines, couple this with innovative Korniche hardware gives a clean uncluttered aesthetic that suits every home.
The best packaging in the industry with everything included – all the parts needed to fit the door all expertly wrapped to practically eliminate damages.
Fully assembled doors – Unless specified every door set comes entirely pre-assembled, just fit, glaze and go.
Full colour installation guide – Simple step by step guide takes guesswork out of the install.

The Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern has been awarded this prestigious award for 2018.
Roger Bisby who tested the Korniche earlier in the year commented: “The first thing I saw was the packaging. Every builder knows the frustration of having items arrive on site with damage. It slows the job down and causes hassle for the manufacturer – and the customer. Often there is a knock-on effect because other trades are unable to get on. With the Korniche Roof Lantern, everything arrived in perfect condition. The next thing is the instruction booklet, which deserves an award on its own. A huge amount of thought and design has gone into this. Every stage is clearly shown with intelligent use of colours to show you the relevant components.
Then there is the engineering. It all fits perfectly, and, when I say fits, I mean no gaps or misalignment, and no need for packers, shims or sealant.
The whole installation process went like a dream and I said at the time that I couldn’t wait until I had the chance to fit another. It didn’t take long. Without the slightest rush, I fitted three on a roof in less than a morning and each one was perfect. More importantly, the customer was delighted”.
Made For Trade are delighted to have received this award, one that stands by the very values on which the Korniche was conceived – to deliver to builders and installers a product that makes life on site easier and more cost-effective, whilst providing a beautiful, architectural lantern look that is contemporary whilst holding on to traditional timber style fitting any home. FITTED IN MINUTES, GLAZED IN SECONDS, STRONGER than any other lantern on the market with WARMER construction and SLIMMER profiles.
Bradley Gaunt, Managing Director says “We have been entered for many fenestration awards over the last couple of years and from my point of view in this industry we often see these awards as the usual suspects congratulating one another on their endeavors, in many cases winning could easily be based on the strength of a PR budget?!. So I’m over the moon with this independent award and Roger’s comments as it puts the product, engineering and design centre stage and applauds the advantages these efforts deliver above its competitors. In 2019 Made for Trade continue the innovation delivered in the Korniche Lantern with a new product launch at the FITShow which we are all very excited about”
There is no greater proof that a product like Korniche has made a mark on the industry than seeing competitors scrambling to catch up, looking to pick up on one or two aspects of the design to try and differentiate their own products and claw back market share. However, the Korniche Aluminium Lantern has already achieved an affinity with both trade and homeowners which will be hard to overturn. No other lantern has the overall winning combinations the Korniche delivers. From quotation to delivery in as little as five working days for a totally bespoke product and fitting in under 30 mins on site – Korniche remains the obvious solution for trades looking for a lantern to grace their flat roof extension projects in 2019.
