Technical advantages and options we recommend:

  • french doors and single doors have two options of cill types:  choose from either a timber cill with an aluminum top for drainage channels or a low aluminum threshold suitable for disabled access.  We always highly recommend the low aluminum threshold cill as it is a much lower step so you are less likely to trip over it and it is also more durable and wear resistant. Obviously this is also useful for disabled access. Here you can see both options, drawing 1 is with timber and drawing 2 is what we recommend, without timber. Dimensions are available in our technical drawings below.
  • here you can see a brochure of the special adjustable hinges we use 3D adjustable butt hinges.  
  • and here you can down load an instructional guide for seasonal adjustment, should it be needed.
  • to ensure no warping, we use highly engineered solid timber only
  • u-value = 1.4 to 1.6 W/m2K (measured on redwood items).
