We felt totally confident in our choice of The Panoramic Door Company as the supplier and installer of our new bifolding doors
Having heard that the owner of the Grand Design organisation had these doors in his home made our choice all the more easier
Q & A
Well to put it simply, a “U Value” is the measurement of the rate of heat loss through a material. The measurement is given in “w/m2K” watts per square meter per degree kelvin.
Which quite simply means that when considering the quality of any product in build and construction, particularly for your own home you should always attempt to achieve the lowest U Values possible because the lower the U Value, the less heat will be needlessly escaping from your home.
When measuring heat loss through doors it is given as an overall measurement through the door as a whole, the glass and frame material combined. Our doors all achieve excellent “U values” - some even getting as low as 1.4w/m2K.
Yes you can! However some of the warranty’s given, which by anyone’s standards are quite amazing, such as the 20 year transferable warranty given by the manufacturer on the Easifold3000 are subject to the doors being fitted by a fully trained technician. Often people find that it is better to have our highly trained fitting crews carry out the full installation and receive the benefits afforded by not only the manufactures but also our insurance backed guarantee.
All of the doors we sell are bottom running and glide smoothly along their tracks. As such they require a track to run on. In all cases this track can be sunk into the floor, there are various ways of achieving this. Thresholds more importantly are referred to as weathered or non-weathered. With all weathered tracks there will be a small up stand, though this can be kept to an absolute minimum. After all this is the seal between the inside and the outside and it is this that allow our products to achieve the high “Weather Ratings” they all can boast!
Absolutely! All of our bifold doors can built to allow for inward open or outward opening. All doors will always be internally glazed so the glass cannot be removed from the outside.
Most definitely! FENSA stands for “Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme”. Registeredapproved member companies of FENSA are allowed to self-certify their installations and are subject to random checks. All installations are recorded on the FENSA database which is made available to local authorities and the Law Society. FENSA issues certificates to householders as proof of compliance. When a householder wishes to sell the property, solicitors will check with the Law Society to ensure compliance with buildings regulations. Knowing you are dealing with a FENSA registered company gives you the customer confidence in the fact you have chosen well.
