Which are better? Double or Triple Glazed Doors?

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

A better question is which of these two very different door options is the better product for you and your property? Nowadays, although they do cost more, triple glazed UPVC residential doors and French doors are not massively more expensive than double glazed door products, but nevertheless do cost a fair bit more. The extra up-front investment aside, properly installed UPVC triple glazing offers unrivalled value for money when household energy savings are taken into account over a 20 year period.

There are some genuine pros and cons to consider when comparing double and triple glazing in relation to replacement UPVC doors. Triple glazing obviously has an extra pane of glass, so each triple glazed sealed unit is thicker and heavier than double glazing, …

Why UPVC Doors Are Popular

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

White UPVC doors are the least cost option when replacing front or back doors, as cost less than aluminium, engineered timber or composite doors. They come with the same 10 year guarantee as any Hazlemere Door, with no call out charges and a full parts and labour warranty for ten years from the date of installation by Hazlemere Doors.

Why Engineered Timber Front Doors Are The Business

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

Hazlemere’s Century timber front doors have an engineered solid core which is made up of 3mm layers known as lamels, with 1 in 4 lamels orientation being reversed (turned opposite way) as wood naturally moves along the grain, stopping movement. Consequently Hazlemere’s high end engineered timber doors cannot bow, and as such are guaranteed no more than 1mm movement per square metre.

These Hazlemere Century timber front door are edged or lipped on all sides with Sapele hardwood, which is an African wood known for density and stability from the Gaboon Tree, so ideal for fixing hinges due to better screw retention, allowing these doors to remain rigid and square.

Hazlemere’s engineered timber front doors have Tricoya facings with 100% density, which is a man-made, …

Why it is worth having the Ultimate Composite Door

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

Hazlemere Doors offer two choices of composite front doors in two different price brackets, the standard but reliable 44mm sash Frontline Composite Door range and the wider 50mm sash Ultimate Composite Door range.

Ultimate Composite Doors are designed to be as secure as possible. They have multi-point locks, steel drill plates, cylinder protectors, outer and inner frame reinforcing, plus anti-bumping cylinders to provide that extra peace of mind. Each Ultimate Composite Door is made with a unique engineered door system ‘made to measure’ for strength, not ‘cut to size’ like most doors tend to be made, which obviously weakens the door. Each Ultimate Composite Door is designed with a bespoke reinforced inner and outer-frame, specially designed to hold all the components including locks, deadbolts & …

The differences between fire doors and fire exit doors

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

The bottom line is that a fire exit door does not have to be a fire rated door like a fire door does, as a fire rated fire door must have proven a fire rating that is at least as high as the rest of the building’s structure.

For example, if the walls and stairwell of a say a block of flats or a detached 2 storey house are designed to resist fire for 30 minutes, then it is OK to fit a 30 minute fire rated door. However if the walls and stairwell are designed to resist fire for 60 minutes, a 60 minute fire rated door must be fitted. Sometimes doors with a 30 minute integrity AND 30 minute insulation are specified, meaning …

Different bespoke patio door options

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

Aluminium, timber and PVCu double glazed sliding patio doors have been a regular home improvement feature in many homes in the South of England for several decades and still they continue to retain their popularity amongst UK property owners. Why is this? There are a lot of reasons why, but one reason is because sliding patio doors have a unique practicality that no other door type is able to replicate.

Hazlemere To Open New Herts Showroom

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

Hazlemere Doors are making a substantial investment in a Hertfordshire showroom on Little Mundells in Welwyn Garden City, which several years ago was the location of Housemaster’s showroom, a brand Hazlemere incorporated into the Hazlemere Group back in November 2013.

Hazlemere had previously completely redecorated and re-carpeted the Welwyn Garden City showroom at Unit 10 back in early 2014, adding many new UPVC and aluminium home improvement products to the display. However, since then there have been many technological advances  in door products, so Hazlemere Window Company took the decision to make a long term commitment to their many customers in Hertfordshire by investing in a new enlarged, ultra-modern showroom at the same premises, by converting virtually all of the office and storage space into …

Benefits of aluminium bi-folding doors with right configuration

Author: Mark Austin  |  Leave a Comment >>

If you are thinking about replacement bi-folding and sliding doors for an existing “opening” to replace French doors, sliding patio doors or casement windows, or indeed looking at fitting folding and sliding doors into an extension – getting the right configuration first time round is vital to ensure their long-term practical operation.

When it comes to “Bi-Fold” doors the clue is in the name, yet, despite this, many double glazing customers still get into hot water when having bi-folding doors fitted, as before ordering they did not take the time to think through the ramifications of certain configurations.

The key thing with bi-folding doors is to remember that each “pair” of bi-folds, opens and closes in tandem, so cannot operate as individual sections, they are …
