JELD-WEN Doors and Windows Now On YouTube

JELD-WEN has launched its own YouTube channel, which is designed to make it even easier for homeowners and trade customers to find exactly the window, door, patio or stairs solution to suit their needs.

The exciting new channel can be found at www.youtube.com/jeldwenuk and viewers can see at first hand film footage demonstrating JELD-WEN's innovative product range and rigorous product testing processes.

Among the first films to be posted on the site show the testing procedures for JELD-WEN's exterior doorsets, which highlights their robust construction and superior resistance to intruder attack. Video footage shows a simulated burglar attack involving tools such as a jemmy and hacksaw, which was produced with guidance from police high security experts and demonstrated just how robust these doorsets really are.  It also shows footage from JELD-WEN's in-house testing centre, with impact assessment involving blows with the force of a sledgehammer that are designed to replicate a serious criminal attack. 

Many of JELD-WEN's products can be selected to meet Secured by Design requirements, which are the enhanced security standards approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).  Many of the doors are also accredited with the  PAS23/PAS24 security standard for domestic doors. 

To enable homeowners to appreciate at first hand the real beauty of natural oak when used for stairs, doors and windows, JELD-WEN's YouTube channel contains footage of a stunning home interior.  This has been created using JELD-WEN's luxury oak stairs with co-ordinating oak windows and internal oak shaker room divider. With today's trend towards oak finishes, JELD-WEN's co-ordinating ranges are the ideal choice for homeowners who want to add value and create a really distinctive look to both the interior and exterior of their property.

For anyone looking to maximise natural light in their home, the film of JELD-WEN's exclusive folding sliding patio doorsets is sure to provide great inspiration.  Viewers can gain a greater appreciation of how these doorsets enhance a property by adding natural light and 'bringing the outdoors in'. The films show how easy it is to use these smooth-glide doors and provides a full appreciation of their flexibility in providing either a full width opening or operating as a single door.  Viewers can also see how the doors fold flat in a concertina style to allow for the maximum use of the living space.

Georgina Campbell, Marketing Manager at JELD-WEN, says: "We wanted to bring our products to life for homeowners and housebuilders and what better way than via video footage on YouTube?   Over the coming months, we are planning to incorporate more product demonstrations for our customers, to feature homes with our products installed and to provide an insight into how our products are tested to meet both performance and legislative requirements.  One of the reasons for running the competition is to find out just what kind of footage they want to see relating to doors, windows and stairs for the home, so we can make our channel as relevant and informative as possible. We look forward to developing our YouTube films so we can truly inspire customers about the endless opportunities with our product range."
