EVERYONE WANTS A PIECE OF LUMI!
Apeer says it was absolutely delighted with the recent FIT Show, displaying its G–Award winning frameless Lumi system to the UK’s window, door and conservatory industry for the first time at Telford’s International Centre, along with the new and exclusive easyPilot brake window locking system.
Apeer’s marketing manager, Linda Tomb, said: “It seems that everyone wants a piece of Lumi! The show had only been open for a few minutes before we took our first order, and we had several customers who had made the trip to FIT specifically to see us, including one all the way from Cornwall and two homeowners who’d travelled from the South. This couple had first seen Lumi at Grand Designs in London last year, and had come to FIT to sign off an order and review some external colours – being a trade event, they were a little overwhelmed, but were still very impressed at the show and our stand in particular.
“Overall, we were delighted with how the show went, and the reaction we had to Lumi from both new and existing customers. Everyone wants to get an edge on the competition and it seems that Lumi really fits the bill. In fact, we’ve been inundated since the show with calls from new customers, many of whom we didn’t get to speak to on the day, but who took the opportunity to take a closer look at our products on the stand and have since followed up with orders.”
The Lumi system of frameless windows and bi–folding patio and residential doors, which feature unique triple glazed units bonded to an internal GRP subframe for unrivalled strength and energy efficiency, caused a sensation when they were launched last year – earning Apeer the prize for ‘New Product of the Year’ at the prestigious G–Awards ceremony in November.
In addition to displaying a range of Lumi products at this year’s FIT Show, Apeer also unveiled its new easyPilot brake window locking system. Another innovative industry first developed in association with leading hardware specialist, Winkhaus, the easyPilot Nordic system allows a window to be locked into any opening position, simply by using the window’s handle and is exclusive to Lumi windows in the UK.
