Distinctive and decorative

The in-house glass facility at Barnsley’s Distinction Doors is continually proving to be one of its greatest assets, the company has reported.

Distinction’s extensive decorative glass selection enables the customisation of over 350 door styles, some of which can be visualised by customers before purchase using the company’s online door-designer software.

According to sales manager Andy Grogan, one of the most distinguishing features of the glass range is that the glass is both laminated and triple glazed.

“In particular, our decorative panel is encapsulated between two panes of glass as opposed to appearing on the outside of the pane,” Andy said. “This makes it easy to maintain both functionally and technically, less prone to damage and much simpler to clean. It is efficiencies such as these which make the product even more desirable to potential buyers and can be the final tip of the balance that prompts them to purchase from us.”

Amid the production chain of panels, paint and glass, it is essential all orders carry effective labelling to help maintain the otif levels that Distinction customers expect, according to sales and marketing director Chantel Roach.

“Our products always arrive clearly labelled with each item displaying customer information, an order number and a clear description of what’s inside,” Chantal said. “Individually wrapped in cardboard and acetate wrap, they have the greatest protection to ensure we can maintain a supply to our customers that is on time and not delayed due to breakages.”
