JELD-WEN, one of the UK’s leading door manufacturers, has seen a significant increase in demand for its internal doorsets, reflecting renewed optimism and increasing activity in the housebuilding market.
The company’s SecurefitTM flat and apartment entrance doorsets and ReadyfitTM internal doorsets are being widely specified for residential developments, due to their high performance and quick and easy installation.
Chris Miller, Product Manager at JELD-WEN, explains: “We have had a really positive start to the year and there seems to be a lot more confidence in the market, particularly in the new build sector. As a result of this we’ve seen really rapid growth in doorsets, both for internal and external use, due to their simple and straightforward installation.”
It is easy to see why JELD-WEN’s Securefit flat and apartment entrance doors have proved so popular. Supplied pre-hung in a frame, with intumescent strip and acoustic seal, they can be quickly and easily installed on site. Each doorset comes ready supplied with the hinges, handles, multi point locking system, keep and choice of viewer and hinges to suit project requirements.
Available as FD30 and FD60 fire resistant versions, these doorsets are available in a wide choice of styles and designs. This includes moulded panel doors, real wood veneer and plywood flush doors
JELD-WEN’s Securefit doorsets meet PAS23 – 24 enhanced security requirements and are Secured by Design accredited as standard, which is the approved standard of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO). The doorsets are also fully compliant with building regulations, including Part M, Part B, Part E and Part L.
Continuing the theme of quick and easy installation, JELD-WEN’s ReadyfitTM internal doorsets are also supplied fully assembled and pre-hung in the frame with ironmongery already fitted for simple installation. Pre-machined architraves and doorstops are included, to further reduce the time spent on site. The doorsets are available in a range of classic and contemporary styles, ranging from glazed moulded doors to real wood veneers in many popular timber types. JELD-WEN have also included a softwood timber lining option to the Readyfit range which is available in the same widths as their MDF linings. This option is particularly useful where developers want to use alternative architrave options on site.
JELD-WEN offers a delivery service to match housebuilder requirements, ensuring all doorsets remain in premium condition and avoiding the need for clients to store the doors on site.
