Pure black is often selected for our high quality, fixed window options. The pure black colour defines the shape, size and quality of our fixed windows. They also enhance the visual impact of your property by defining the new and modern windows you have had installed. Pure black is also easy to maintain.
Magnificent grey is growing in popularity and is fast becoming the most popular colour option for our fixed windows. Magnificent grey is not only easy to maintain, but it also blends into the features and colour scheme of the property very well also. Lots of people love our magnificent grey option as it is a new colour option and is less defining when compared with the white and black options.
All colours applied come with a 10 year warranty for long lasting reassurance. Only the highest quality materials are used which are professionally applied by experienced industry experts. Hence the ability to offer a 10 year warranty on all colour options.

All our doors and windows have been submitted to the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS for short!) to gain the all important Industry standard PAS 24 accreditation, this involves a rigorous testing procedure at their independent testing facility.

Whether you live in a small or large property and regardless of where your home is situated within your neighbourhood even with the best neighbours in the world, we all worry over the security of our homes. They are our nests, where we raise our families and need to be as secure as we can possibly make them with particular emphasis when it comes to windows, doors, lanterns and bifold doors.
These are the weak points for any house and can become the entry points of any unwanted 'visitor'. Our industry has responded with the introduction of the PAS 24 (2012) Security Standard, this is the line in the sand of the very minimum basic security requirements as dictated by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS for short!) So the door, window and lantern manufacturer submits their product and is granted this 'fit for purpose' standard. These measures have proven to be so effective in stopping intruders that the Police Service has had to plan differently when they are executing a warrant and making an arrest by forcing entry to the house of a suspect. Comforting information indeed and should go a long way to allaying any fears and worries you may have over the security of your home.
This is the very reason why we specialise in bifold security to ensure a force of entry is not possible other than through extreme instances which are almost impossible to prevent. As a company, we pay particular attention to security across all our product range and truly believe that we sell the most secure and highly tested bifold door solution on the market and we welcome you to put this to the test by visiting our showroom in Colchester, Essex.
