ConstructionAll timber used in the manufacture of our lift and slide doors is harvested from well managed forests. Choices are proud to only use engineered softwood that is FSC. Certified Timber. Working with a natural material such as wood means taking our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We do this by conserving resources and selecting wood at the highest available quality.
We then scan the wood to identify any imperfections by cutting out and finger jointing leaving you with a flawless finish.
Frames and sashes are available in Softline and Classic profiles. Standard frame size is 114mm. The timber corner joints are doubled tenoned; and the sliding leaf is mounted externally within the frame.
Factory FinishOur doors are supplied fully finished using water based paints and stains and are preserved with an environmentally friendly biodegradable protection treatment against rot and mould. After assembly, all our doors are then primed and sanded before they are finished with a flawless coating of paint.
Our doors and window systems are available in all standard RAL colours, as well as our standard colour range. Any internal and external colour combination is possible and some stain options. The external standard RAL colours have a standard sheen level of 30% gloss.
