What makes our French UPVC doors special
We have been manufacturing French doors for over 20 years, our secret of success is striving for the highest quality using the best materials.
Because we manufacture these doors in our own factory we are not restricted to supplier design limitations.
We can tailor them to your needs, please use our unique on-line French door designer.
Side panels/lights will be manufactured separately to the doors including a free reinforced 15mm coupler for added strength.
Energy Efficiency (Approved Document L Compliant)
A new door from Modern UPVC Windows will make a real difference in the winter and help to reduce your home's energy bills, minimising heat loss. On glazed doors the special coating on each pane reflects the heat back into the room. All our glass is filled with argon gas which is extremely effective in reducing heat loss as it's denser than air.
Low Threshold available
Optionally a convenient low aluminium threshold of only 15mm high (not including any cill).
Standard High Ingenious Security (see video)
Our doors have high security built in. As standard an exceptionally strong Ingenious 5-point security lock with hookbolts and shootbolts that complies with PAS 23, PAS 24 standards and the police approved Secured by Design specification. Our doors are internally beaded, the glass or panels can only be removed from the inside.
