JELD-WEN Doors Specified For Retirement Homes

Owners of Churchill Retirement Living properties across the country will soon be reaping the benefits of high quality FD30 doorsets supplied by JELD-WEN.

JELD-WEN's ReadyFit® internal and bespoke Flat Entrance doorsets - for the entrance to each property, have recently been supplied to properties in Woking,Twickenham, Southbourne and Stourport.

The internal doors were JELD-WEN's popular Rockport design, which is a contemporary moulded door that was specified with a solid core, for added durability.  The Rockport door is being supplied in pre-primed white, to enable customisation on site.   

JELD-WEN's Flat apartment entrance doors were specified as FD30 fire doors and were machined to meet specific customer lock requirements, Supplying the door pre-serviced for the lock also reduced installation times on site.

Chris Miller, Product Manager for JELD-WEN, said: "We are really pleased to be working with Churchill Retirement Living on this major contract to supply their prestigious homes.  These doorsets were specified to meet specific aesthetic and performance requirements, as well as being quick and easy to install.  Our ReadyFit™ and Flat Entrance doorsets meet these needs perfectly."

Richard Brodie, Group Procurement Manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said:"It was important that the doors reflected the high specification of our properties.  The doorsets are compatible with the contemporary style of our homes, whilst meeting all performance requirements."

It is no surprise that JELD-WEN's ReadyfitTM internal doorsets were selected for this major project.  Supplied fully assembled and pre-hung in the frame with ironmongery already fitted, they enable simple and straightforward 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 has also included a softwood timber lining option to the ReadyfitTM range which is available in the same widths as the MDF linings. This option is particularly useful where developers want to integrate alternative architrave options on site.

JELD-WEN's Rockport door which Churchill Retirement Living selected is an elegant five panel design that provides a contemporary appearance within a popular moulded door construction.  The Rockport door has a smooth face and is available as a 30 or 60 (FD30 or FD60) minute fire door.  It is also available with a number of attractive glazing options.

As part of the added value service, JELD-WEN's composites doorsets were supplied to Churchill Retirement Living on a plot-by-plot basis, for greater convenience.

Churchill Retirement Living is a developer of purpose-built retirement apartments that feature a secure environment and shared communal facilities.  They typically include 20 - 50 individual properties.
