JELD-WEN Sets its Sights High With Prestigious London Development

Timber doorsets from JELD-WEN were selected for the high profile 150 High Street, Stratford development in London, which features seven new apartment blocks, including one of the highest residential towers in London.

JELD-WEN's high specification SecureFit™ flat entrance doors, ReadyFit™ doorsets and Real Wood Over-Veneer oak internal doors will be included within 706 new homes at the development, which is located adjacent to the 2012 Olympic Stadium.  This includes the 132 metre high 'Halo' building, which will become a striking part of the London skyline.

The apartments are being built by Ardmore Construction Ltd, a specialist design and build contractor, working on behalf of Genesis Housing Association, on one of their largest projects to date.

Alan Edgar, Director for Ardmore, said: "It is very important on a development of this magnitude that we work with suppliers we can trust will be able to deliver.  As we have an established relationship with JELD-WEN, we are aware of the reliability of both their products and service which is essential so we can achieve the required build schedule."

Jonathan Seeley, National Sales Manager at JELD-WEN, explains: "We are delighted to be working with Ardmore to supply what is one of the most prestigious residential developments in London. It is a major project in terms of the number of doorsets supplied, each of which has a very high specification to match the quality of the build here.  Our SecureFit™ and ReadyFit™ doorsets are becoming renowned amongst developers, not only for their aesthetics, but also for their rapid, simple and straightforward installation.  Our Real Wood oak internal doors were the perfect choice for internal doors, not least because they benefit from a high specification, but they also complement the trend towards oak finishes in the home."

It is easy to see why JELD-WEN's SecureFit™ flat entrance doors were selected for this project. Supplied pre-hung in a frame, with intumescent strip and acoustic seal, they can be quickly and easily installed on site.

All SecureFit™ flat entrance doorsets come ready supplied with the hinges fitted and flush fitting ironmongery factory morticed, as well as supplied and fitted to achieve PAS23 and PAS24 criteria. Available as FD30 and FD60 versions, these doorsets are available in a wide choice of styles and designs, which includes moulded panel doors, real wood veneered and foil and plywood flush doors.   

JELD-WEN's SecureFit™ doorsets meet PAS23 - 24 enhanced security requirements and are available with Secured by Design accreditation, which is the approved standard of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).  The doorsets are also fully compliant with building regulations, including Part M, Part B, Part E and Part L.

Continuing the theme of quick and easy installation, JELD-WEN's ReadyFitTM internal doorsets are also supplied fully assembled and pre-hung in the frame to enable simple installation. Pre-machined architraves and doorstops are included, to further reduce the time spent on site. The doorsets are available in a range of classic and contemporary styles, ranging from glazed moulded doors to real wood veneers in many popular timber types.

JELD-WEN's Real Oak Veneer doors chosen for this development benefit from the company's improved specification, which includes a real wood veneer pressed over the matching hardwood edges. This look is popular as it provides a high quality seamless edge to the door which matches with the face veneer. 

All JELD-WEN doorsets are designed to be quick and easy to install, removing the need for trimming or other adjustments on site.

JELD-WEN pre-packs doorsets on a plot-by-plot basis, allowing reduced site storage requirements and a smooth installation process.
