All opening sections of the frame are fitted with high quality Aquamac weather seals, a premium quality product which provides consistently high standards of energy efficiency.
Glass and glazing
Our doors are double-glazed to “A” rated specifications, exceeding the latest building regulation requirements.
Our sealed 22 mm double-glazed units, comprising of low “E” glass, argon filled “Swisspacer” bar and Pilkington Optiwhite™ extra clear, low iron glass provide an indicative centre pane U-value of 1.2 W/m2K.
We offer a wide variety of glass types to suit specific requirements, including:
Our drained and vented glazing rebates allow any moisture to escape through small, concealed drainage holes, which helps to maximise the life of our double-glazed units.
We use the most comprehensive treatment and finishes for our timber doors to ensure their longevity and minimise maintenance.
Advanced microporous treatment and paint systems combine superior standards of extensibility, adhesion and colour retention, enabling maintenance periods to be extended and redecoration to require only one coat application.
Our timber doors are primed with two spray-applied coats of white primer undercoat and mid-coat and are finished with a spray-applied top coat in a white semi-gloss finish to provide the ultimate in durability and weather resistance.
Once installed, our decorators brush apply a further finish top coat to the doors and frames, as required, at which point the surrounding walls are also made good and decorated internally to fully complete the installation.
Specified paint colours can be colour matched.
We also offer the option of dual colour.
Security is provided with an insurance-approved locking system, the leading door being pre-fitted with a high security five point shoot bolt locking system and the slave door with flush bolts to the top and bottom, concealed in the rebate.
The leading (first opening) door is fitted with a set of high quality lever handles.
Lever handle sets comprise of a lever handle on back plate with built-in “Euro” profile escutcheon or separate lever handles and escutcheons.
