Vista teams up with pioneering modular home builder

Market-leading composite door manufacturer Vista has recently teamed up with pioneering modular home builder Ilke Homes.

Vista worked closely with Ilke Homes on developing its composite door set and making several technical changes to suit Ilke’s modular house, which is precision-engineered off-site using modern construction methods and manufactured quicker than with traditional methods.

Vista’s Commercial Manager John Pinder worked closely with both Vista’s and Ilke Homes technical teams to make bespoke adaptations so Vista’s door set would be perfectly suited to their modular house construction requirements.

Dave Sheridan, executive chairman at Ilke Homes, said: “Our precision-engineered homes are extremely air-tight and energy-efficient, meaning they can be run on £1 a day.

The easiest access for heat loss in any home is through doors. So, for our homes, it is crucial that our door supplier can provide strong, durable and thermal efficient doors.

“Working with Vista Panels ensures that we’re confident that every home we deliver is safe, secure and warm.”

Market-leading 5-day lead times

Vista’s highly secure and thermally efficient doors are manufactured on a market-leading five working day lead time, putting them way ahead of other GRP door set providers, and providing another reason why Ilke chose to partner with them.

Vista currently supplies some of the UK’s largest homebuilders and Managing Director Keith Sadler said: “We were absolutely delighted to team up with Ilke Homes and play a part in the future of housebuilding.”

Vista’s door set stands out as one of the most highly specified in the door market as it features a bespoke 5-hook locking mechanism and a triple seal PVCu outer frame and surpasses stringent industry requirements.

Vista are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and, having been awarded Manufacturer of the Year at the end of 2019 by the National Fenestration Awards, they are looking forward to making further inroads into the housebuilding market to expand their portfolio.
