Composite Doors - specification

Adjust the Size of the Door to match your own measurements

Entering your measurements

This Step of the processes allows you to submit the sizes , in Millimetres (mm), that you would like the door manufactured to.

red arrow Width

 

 

 

Please change the size of the door to match your own measurements. Click on any size (Shown in millimetres) which appears with either a red arrow above them or just with as numerals with a blue line through (See above).

Current minimum

Amend each size as required, within any minimum or maximum production sizes allowed, which may appear highlighted in a black text box (See above)  

Adjustment

If you enter any size which is above or below the current maximum or minimum a text box will appear (See above).

Certain sizes will be automatically calculated based on other size information shown for each door. These appear as white numerals in a red text box (See above)  

 

Cill included?

The sizes confirmed will always include any Cill

 

Manufacturing  and measurement tolerances

Our manufacturing works within tolerances of 2-3mm.

 

Please ensure the sizes you provide are not tight brickwork opening sizes as your new door may not fit, always allow a tolerance of about minus 10mm in the width and minus 10mm in the height. (Reduce size further if your opening is not square, out of level or has protruding bricks as your new door must be installed square, level and plumb).

Assumptions
We will always assume :

  • The normal width for a side opening sash is 600mm, this is measured from the edge of the outer frame to the centre of the mullion (vertical bar). Exceptions: If the door divides into equal parts of less than 650mm (divided by mullions) then your side opener will be set at an equal division. However, if you specify egress hinges it will revert to a 650mm wide section. If you specify easy clean hinges it will revert to a 600mm wide section.
  • The normal height of a fanlight sash is 360mm, this is measured from the top of the frame to the centre of the transom (horizontal bar). Georgian bar, diamond and rectangular lead will be laid out according to our best practice.

You can choose if you want your door to open inwards into your home or outwards.

You can also choose which side of the door the hinges are positioned on, this will determine if the door opens to the right or the left.

Our Side Lights include `toughened` glass as standard - for added safety and security.

`Toughened` glass isn`t necessary in the top windows panes currently, but it can be added as an optional extra if required.

The door knocker can give your door a more traditional feel and add an element of decoration as well as having a practical use.

Our door handles are secured internally to prevent them being removed from the outside. The locking system works by pulling up the handle to activate the mechanism before turning the key, and pushing down to open. Doors are supplied with white handles, as standard, or for a more modern look you can opt for either gold or chrome handles, at an extra cost. Regardless of the handle colour, the part where the key goes in will always be brass in colour.

The standard locking mechanism is a Lever/Lever which allows you to open the door using the handle from inside and outside, if you wish to not be able to open the door using the handle from the outside and instead have to use a key then please select the split-spindle mechanism as described below (available at extra cost).
lever
With a split spindle the locking mechanism works differently on the inside and outside of the house. The handle works as normal from the inside - push down to open, and lift up to activate the mechanism before turning the key. From the outside, pushing down on the handle does not operate anything and the door is always partly locked when it is closed. This means that a key is always needed when entering from the outside.

Our composite doors offer the highest level of security. The super-strong structural frame combined with glass-reinforced plastic and reinforced steel outer frame, provide infallible protection against intruders.

Our composite doors also feature as standard Yale Lockmaster 2 hook, deadbolt and latch making it difficult for potential intruders to lever the door open.

You can also upgrade to the Ingenious Duplex 4 hook, hookbolt and latch. All composite doors offered are tested and acknowledged by SBD (Secured By Design) a crime prevention project of the national police.

Obscure Glass
(Available at extra cost)

Add an element of privacy with the option of obscure glass.

Georgian Bars(Available at extra cost)

Rectangular Leading
(Available at extra cost)

Diamond Leading
(Available at extra cost)

Leading is available in either a rectangular or diamond shaped pattern for a beautiful and traditional looking finish.

 

 

 

A door cill sits at the bottom of the exterior door frame to aid the drainage of water away from the door and house. The depth of cill needed will depend on how far back your door is set into the wall.

stub cill

Stub cill

A stub cill sits within the window cavity and is typically used when a cill is required to breach a gap between the new window and an existing structural cill. The stub cill can be placed to allow water to flow down on to the other surface that will drain the water away from the building.

 

150mm cill150mm cill

The 150mm cill is the most popular option for windows set approx 25 mm back from the brick face.

 

 

180mm cill180mm cill

A 180mm cill is typically used for windows that are set further back from the brick face, approx 50mm.

 

 

If the door has a cill as part of the structure of the house, eg. a stone or brick cill, you may not require a cill as there may already be sufficient means of drainage in place.

If you select to include an external Cill as part of your door order, it will be automatically included in the overall height of your door.

150mm and 180mm include Cill End Caps. Stub Cills do not need them and so they are not included.
