Appearance, quality and low maintenance led Derek Warwick Developments to equip its upmarket development on the Dorset coast with PVC-U systems from Eurocell.
Durlston Point is a superb arrangement of five detached houses that occupies a commanding position in Swanage. The houses feature Modus casement windows in Moondust Grey, Aspect bi-fold doors and white Eurocell fascias and soffits, to complement high-end elements such as underfloor heating, German contemporary kitchens with Silestone work surfaces and smart home systems designed by Nethaus.
The decision to install PVC-U products on the external envelope of the house was both practical and aesthetic.
Both Modus and Aspect are guaranteed: Modus for 12 years; Aspect bi-fold door profiles for ten years, and door furniture for five. The Modus range is not just attractive – it is also durable and thermally efficient, as its BBA certification documents confirms. The BBA concluded that the PVC-U extruded profiles would continue to function satisfactorily for more than 35 years and that the thermal transmittance value or U-value of the range was 1.2 W/m² using 4/20/4 mm sealed double-glazed units.
Apart from the high aesthetic and performance benefits, the doors offer hassle-free fabrication and installation from intelligently designed and precision engineered bespoke components that enable accurate, consistent, straightforward manufacture and fitting.
Door openings can be up to six metres wide, with up to seven door panels. The unique roller assembly means doors can be configured to meet customer preferences, including the popular 4/2/2 configuration as well as simple 2/2/0 arrangements to replace existing patio doors.
Eurocell’s commitment to design excellence resulted in Aspect to be the first in the bi-fold door category to gain BBA accreditation and Secured by Design status. Meeting the requirements of these two important standards means that Aspect bi-fold doors are perfect for all new build applications, where Secured by Design is being specified to meet the requirements of Approved Document Q.
A range of external colours is available to complement existing architectural style, as well as a choice of hardware colours. Aspect has a white internal finish as standard, to maintain a bright, fresh interior, with some colours available with colour both sides from stock.
