Apeer, the manufacturer of leading edge composite doors, is getting ready to unveil a groundbreaking new product at Grand Designs Live London (ExCeL, May 2 – 10).

Representing the company’s first venture outside of doors and entrance systems, the hush-hush new project is, according to Apeer md Asa McGillian, “set to add a radical new look to British and Irish homes”.

Utilising the company’s skills and expertise in high end all-GRP composite door sets, Project L represents yet another innovation from the Ballymena-based company.

It was the first to produce a double rebate composite French door, stable door and arched door sash. Then, in 2012 Apeer set a new standard in construction with the first ever all-glass reinforced plastic (GRP) composite doorset. That year it also introduced a 1000mm wide sash; and Apeer 70 became officially recognised as ‘Energy A Rated’. The company’s Doorbuilder software programme has also transformed the way in which retailers work with customers to design and order complete entrance systems with ease and instant pricing.

Now the company is poised to launch another first. Apeer marketing manager Linda Tomb confirmed that Project L had been two-and-a-half years in development and represented an investment of nearly a million pounds.

She said: “We believe that what we are about to unveil is what the market has been waiting for – it is quite unlike anything else out there.”

Apeer can be found at Stand B330 in the Grand Build Hall at Grand Designs Live.
