The Camden Group’s innovative new oversize sliding patio door was one of the star attractions when it was launched at the FIT Show 2019.
Roy Harrison, Camden Group Sales Manager, said: “The show was a huge success creating lots of interest in our product range from a large number of new customers including installers, architects, housing associations and specifiers.
“The new 4m sliding patio door proved particularly popular — visitors were all very impressed with the build quality and just how smoothly the door moved on the easy track glide system.”
We originally showcased the super-large sliding door at the last FIT Show at the NEC in 2017 as a prototype and reactions were very positive, so the design and production teams have spent the last two years refining the specifications.

The profile has been specially engineered to ensure the PVCu door frames are strong enough to take the extra size of the glazing units. Until now PVCu were limited in size and the only option for householders wanting large doors would be aluminium or bi-fold doors.
Another success story for Camden was ThermocillTM, a completely new cost-saving product that redirects heat in a room. The eco-friendly product was also launched at the FIT Show and received a very positive response.

“We had a positive response about our other products from manufacturers of modular homes and temporary offices,” said Roy.
“Our trade clients like the fact that Camden Group extrude the high impact PVCu frames on-site, and therefore have complete control over the quality — it gives them peace of mind. Our fast turnaround times are also attractive because it means we are responsive to customer demand.
“Of course there is growing interest in our environmental policies too and our range is unique because the majority of our products are made from 80% recycled PVCu content.”
Camden also launched a new mobile app, Camden Q-U, that enables easy ordering and pricing for installers on the move. The app displays all window and door design options available such as colours, sizes, glazing choices etc, and provides an instant quote. The app is available to installers with a Camden Group account, who can now visit their customers to provide on the spot pricing and orders can be placed instantly.
