First 100 through the door

Doorco’s new glazing service, which offers to take the pain out of glazing doors, particularly for the growing contemporary market, hit 100 orders in just a matter of weeks and has some major contacts in the pipeline for the last quarter of the year.

Dan Sullivan, Doorco’s MD, said: “As the popularity of modern door designs soars, so does the complexity of the components and skill-sets required to create the ultimate contemporary door.

“While many of our customers have the desire to introduce the flush finish of the Inox or Urban cassettes, the installation can often be complicated and time consuming and doesn’t always justify the additional resource required in their fast-paced manufacturing processes. This is why Doorco chose to invest in our own glazing service which has specialist equipment run by a dedicated glazing team.

“Enquiries so far indicate that Inox is the most popular choice for our customers. It looks great on a flush slab thanks to its high-grade stainless-steel flush fit exterior that sits just 3mm from the door surface. Tri-SYS, while simple to install, is also prevalent as customers opt for ease, which is exactly what this service was aimed at.

“Offering a more traditional raised profile in a woodgrain finish, Tri-SYS gives any of our designs a more conventional feel. The third option is Urban – a combination of thermally broken aluminium and PVCU, available in a woodgrain or smooth finish, in a range of colours including an anodised finish. Urban looks great on Links, really creating the ultimate contemporary door.”

The company has also enhanced its ordering process with the addition of a new, bespoke door designer to its website – a customer’s design can be sent directly through to its ordering system and delivered as soon as three days.
