Luxury Patio Door In Demand With Home Improvers

JELD-WEN has reported huge demand for its premium folding sliding patio doorset, the Oak Canberra, with home improvers looking to enhance and add value to their homes.

Product Manager at JELD-WEN, said: "The current trend towards improving a home rather than moving has led to a significant increase in demand for our Canberra Oak range.  What has also added to its popularity is that it can be produced to meet bespoke size options and with a specification to suit homeowner needs.  Homeowners continue to recognise how the Oak Canberra can add a large amount of natural light and enhance the lifestyle of occupants, by opening up the living space into the garden."

Renowned for its truly inspirational design, the Canberra was one of the first sliding folding patio doors to be introduced into the UK.  This unique patio door is one of the most luxurious timber folding sliding doorsets available and complements the trend towards oak floorcoverings and furnishings in the home. It is manufactured from solid oak laminate, which is Chain of Custody certified timber to ensure it originates from well managed forests with strict reforestation programmes.   Its robust 54mm thick door leaves can be supplied either unfinished, for buyers to decorate to their own tastes, or factory painted or stained to enhance its appearance and prolongs its lifespan.

Energy efficiency is a key benefit of the Canberra, which is supplied with a standard specification of 24mm Low-E insulated glass, ensuring it is compliant with Part L and ensures thermal efficiency.  However, customers are able to upgrade this specification to achieve an even lower U value down to 1.3W/m²K with gas filled triple glazed units, which improves energy efficiency even further.

The Canberra patio door has become a firm favourite with customers looking to maximise the amount of natural light within their homes. Combining the style and elegance of a classic French door with the space saving benefits of a sliding door, the Canberra patio door allows for the creation of an inspirational light, open and airy living environment. The unique slide and fold mechanism allows for full opening access to the outdoors, which is a quick, simple and convenient way to enjoy the benefits of alfresco living.

Another recent innovation to the Canberra range is the addition of attractive white Venetian blinds which are permanently sealed within the double-glazing cavity of the patio door, offering a stylish additional feature and even greater convenience.  This innovation increases privacy, keeps the living area warmer in winter and helps prevent solar gain in summer.  Once sealed in this totally dust-free environment, the blinds require no cleaning, always appearing new and are protected from damage, unlike external blind systems.

JELD-WEN's window product manager continues: "The Oak Canberra is rapidly becoming one of this year's "must haves" and its excellence performance and stunning good looks ensure it is suitable for both contemporary and classic designs of home."
