Door colours


Our doors are available in white or in woodgrain effect colours, or in textured colours.


Our high quality White profile is guaranteed against discolouration.


Our nice Light Oak woodgrain profile has the look of natural timber doors without the maintenance.


Our Rosewood woodgrain profile, a nice alternative to timber doors.


Anthracite-Grey textured profile, RAL 7016


Black-Brown textured profile, RAL 8022 which is almost black.

Disclaimer: We cannot guarantee to match existing colours. If you need a colour match, please email us with your address and ask for a sample of the colour you need.

Handle colours


Our handles are available in white, polished chrome, polished brass /gold, satin silver or black as you can see in the picture:

Our door handles


External cill

Most doors require an external cill to drain water away correctly. If you already have a stone or tiled cill as part of the building you may not require a cill.

As standard our cills are 100mm wider than the door, projecting 50mm on each side.

85mm stubb cill
This cill only protrudes from the external door face by 15mm.

155mm normal cill
Our most common cill size covers most situations. Protrudes from the external door face by 85mm. Recommended.

180mm long cill
If your door is set further back into the brickwork then you may require our largest cill which protrudes from the door by 110mm.

Please note: The cill height is 30mm and if a cill is chosen then these 30mm will be included within the overall height of the door.
For more advice please contact us.

Glazing

Thermal upgrade as standard, same glazing units as our windows, Pilkington glass filled with Argon gas with black superspacers.


Double glazing

Advanced double glazing system outperforming standard A rated.


Triple glazing

The next generation of glazing for even higher energy efficiency.



Acoustic glazing

Acoustic laminated double glazing with superior noise insulation.
More information

Acoustic glazing


Pilkington Optiphon™ high quality acoustic laminated glass offers excellent noise reduction without reducing light transmittance and impact performance.

Ideal for significantly reducing noise from road, rail or air traffic, factories or nightclubs.

Noise is reflected back towards the source and also absorbed within the glass.



Locks & cylinders


We supply these locking cylinders:

Euro: This is a our standard 6 pin cylinder.

Security: A high security option with Kitemark which is anti-pick, anti-drill, and anti-bump.

Thumbturn: This type of cylinder enables you to lock the door from the inside without a key. A key is still required to operate the door from the outside.
Thumbturns cannot be keyed alike, so if you choose handles on both doors and thumbturns they will have different outside keys.

All our doors come with 3 keys, or 6 identical keys if you choose handles on both doors.


Cylinder examples


Multipoint secure locks:
Engage by pulling the handle up. Multipoint secure door locks
Door security information


Open inside/outside


A door can open in, into your home or out, away from your home.

Open out: The hinges are on the outside. All open out doors are fitted with a 90 degree restrictor arm as standard to stop the door opening more than 90 degrees.

Open in: Hinges are on the inside.
If there are no side panels, we recommend adding a 20mm frame extender to both sides to ensure sufficient space between the hinge and the interior plaster line.


From the hinge to the edge of the outer frame is roughly 16mm:


Master / slave doors


You can choose to have either side of the French doors as the main opening door (master door).

The master door must be opened first before the second (slave) door is able to open. Usually people just open only the master door.

Please note Left or Right as viewed from the outside.


Opening example, master opens first,
with handles on both doors

  Slave door     -     Master door


Slave door operation


You can have either:

Handles on both doors.
As long as you open the master door first, it's very easy to open both doors. Both doors have cylinder locks with 6 identical keys (keyed alike).
The doors look symmetrical and open easily and quickly (please see video example of Master doors).

Handles on master door only.
In this case, the other door (slave) opens with finger operated shoot- bolts at the top and bottom.
Only the master door has a cylinder lock with 3 keys.
Suitable for people who rarely need to open both doors and prefer it to be obvious which door opens first.

Opening example, slave door
with shootbolt (no handle):


Hinges Left/Right


Hinges can be at the left or right side of the door. The handle is always at the opposite side.

In the case of a door with an additional side panel, it's recommended that the hinge be placed on the wall side.



Lever or pad


Normal (lever handle both sides):
This handle allows to open the door from both sides without a key. The advantage of this normal handle is that you can close the door and still get in from the outside without a key, unless you lock it.

Pad (lever inside, pad outside):
A pad does not allow the door to open from the outside without the key. So the advantage is added security, but you have to be careful not to lock yourself out.


Both types require the handle to be lifted in order to engage the multi point locks. Once lifted the key can be turned to fully lock.



Frame extenders

A frame extender increases the thickness of a door frame at a specified side. Great for properties with deep plaster, render or tiles over tiles.

Some fitters buy extenders as a precaution, for example where the door opening has not been built yet. Extenders can be modified to accomodate inconsistent side walls.

Extenders simply clip or slide on the door profile as you can see on the picture.


Example of 20mm extender sliding


Threshold


A door can have:

Normal threshold:
Our normal UPVC threshold is 70mm high (not including the cill if chosen), with the benefit of a better seal and insulation.

Low threshold:
Our low aluminium threshold is 15mm high (not including the cill), enabling easier access, especially for wheelchairs.
On inward opening doors, please make sure there is sufficient clearance internally betwen the bottom of the door and your finished floor.


Threshold comparison:

Threshold examples


Letterbox


The letterbox by default will have the same colour as the door handle. If you prefer your letterbox in a different colour or in a different place, please leave a note at checkout.

Our letterboxes


Knocker/spyhole


Knockers are available with or without a spyhole and are matched to your handle colour. The spyhole is built into the door knocker and allows you to view who is outside before opening.

If you prefer a knocker at a different place or colour, please leave a note at checkout.

Glass safety


We supply 3 strengths of glass:

Standard: Normal glass, which is dangerous when broken as it breaks in large sharp pieces.

Toughened: Specially treated to increase its strength and safety.
If broken, toughened glass breaks into many small pieces therefore it's less likely to cause injury.

Laminated: Our strongest glass, similar to a car's windscreen, has a laminated layer that keeps the glass together when broken.



FENSA building regulations apply to glass safety.

Opener choice


Top Opener
A top hinged opener with the handle at the bottom that opens outwards.

Dummy Opener
Looks just like a real opener, but it has no handle and does not actually open. It's just decorative to match real operners.

FENSA building regulations apply to ventilation.

Trickle vents


A trickle vent is an add-on to a window's opener when a small amount of ventilation is required in such areas as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms.
A trickle vent allows limited airflow without having to open the window fully or partially. It helps to control outside air flow which helps to reduce condensation and mould.

Our trickle vents have 1700mm² opening, 265mm length, 18.5mm height, 20 to 26mm projection and 2212mm² free area.



The trickle vents will match the window's chosen frame colour, except with black/brown frames where anthracite grey vents will be supplied.
