As standard all our double glazed UPVC doors, Composite doors and UPVC windows are Custom built to the sizes you require as surveyed by us and to our exacting high standards.
All upvc window and door frames are built using 70mm upvc profiles that have achieved BBA and BSI Accreditation in their own rights as this testing is paid for by system supplier and they hold this specifc accreditation and this is why after much consideration and testing of product we chose our upvc system supplier very carefully.
All upvc window and door frames are made from 100% virgin upvc this is definately a non recycled upvc, this is very important to the life expectancy and colourfastness of the window or door as any frames which have any percentage of recycled content may still contain lead based chemicals which affect quality and efficiency of the frame.
All our UPVC doors feature 6 point multi locking systems with hook locking points to every door, Pilkington K energy / money saving safety double glazed glass or Vista-Therm energy efficient glass for even greater energy cost savings and galvanised steel reinforced frames as standard, although upvc reinforcing is now making its way into the market as this increases the energy efficiency of the door or window and is as strong as the steel reinforcing. This means you can enjoy piece of mind knowing that your UPVC item is built to last.
Your UPVC door can be hinged on the left or right, to open inwards or outwards, hinges used are steel flag hinges which allow adjusting on four different points for ease of use and door adjustment all doors have three hinges as standard rather then only two hinges.
