Doors in period properties can be ill-fitting due to building movement over the years, and can also be draughty; unless they have a high-grade sealing system installed.
A door's energy performance can be upgraded using the same principles used on sash windows, and can be fitted into Front Doors, Patio Doors, French Doors and Internal Doors.
As with our sash window renovation process, Ventrolla’s two-part service in relation to doors begins with the renovation of the original timber. The second part is draught-proofing using the unique Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS). Using the same materials we use on sliding sash windows ensures the same high results.
Our preferred method is to install our Perimeter Sealing System around the door itself to avoid altering either the appearance or aesthetics of the door. Alternatively, it can be fitted within door blades secured to the frame. The choice will depend upon the type of the door and customer’s requirements.
In our standard installation the pile carrier is routed into the timber giving a permanent fixing point and making the system an integral part of the door. The appropriate sized weatherfin pile weather-stripping is then selected to suit the gap, and inserted into the pile carrier.
The seal conforms to BS 7386: 1997, being manufactured from a multifilament polypropylene yarn that is silicon treated to be water repellent and UV stabilised. This means that it will retain its integrity and benefits throughout its life.
Whether your home or project has timber doors, sash windows or casement windows, Ventrolla’s system can reduce the energy loss whilst retaining the building’s character.
