It was an obvious choice for Apeer R&D engineer Paul Vajda to have one of the doors he helped to design for his own home near the company’s Ballymena factory recently. It was just as natural, when his father-in-law wanted a new front door, that Paul would recommend the company’s Lumi system.

The result, a combination of Lumi composite door with two full-height glazed sidelights in chartwell green exterior, with winchester foil inside to complement the oak flooring, was well-received as the customer is now looking to order matching Lumi windows.

The entire system, door frame and sash, is made of glass-fibre reinforced profiles and is triple glazed as standard, achieving U-values as low as 0.8W/m²K.

The door was fitted by Apeer’s fitting team manager Gary Neil, who said: “The system was designed for easy retrofit installation as well as new-build and that proved to be the case here. Once the old door was out, the new one was in and complete in just a couple of hours.”
