Premdor First Choice For The Trade
20 Jul 2011
For over 80 years, Premdor have supplied the Building and construction sector with the widest range of internal and entry doors, with ranges to suit all styles, design aspirations and technical requirements. Today, as a result of ongoing product development, Premdor presents what is probably the largest single branded range in the industry.
From the small housing repair firm to the large property developer Plc, Premdor has developed a door style that will not only fit the exact design requirement but also bring inspiration and added value for both builder and householder alike. Such is the working relationship with the building and construction sector, Premdor are now regarded as the automatic ‘first choice’ supplier.
For over a decade the ubiquitous 4 and 6 panel moulded door has been a favourite of the housebuilder due to the quality of appearance and excellent value for money. Now, for the same reasons, the latest generation vertical five panel moulded door has quickly developed to be a market favourite and yet another Premdor success story.
Available exclusively from Premdor the vertical five panel moulded door is available in a wide range of both sizes and core constructions including 30 minute and 60 minute firedoor options. These highly successful doors exemplify Premdor’s attitude to new product development, design innovation and an acute awareness of the building and construction sector’s requirements, for both traditional and contemporary products.
Successful in the volume end of the market, Premdor are equally successful in the premium value sectors, where high value properties demand top specification doors such as the striking Innova real wood inlaid veneer range with solid core construction for enhanced strength and sound proofing properties.
The innova range is complemented by the ever popular veneer plus 35mm solid core range and the factory lacquered standard veneer collection. All these highly acclaimed veneer ranges are available with PEFC chain of custody certification making them ideally placed to meet the demands of today’s eco building environment.
All Premdor doors may be enhanced by a full high quality range of lever furniture, locks, latches and door closers in a wide selection of single and dual finishes.
Despite the vagaries of the British weather the market for Premdor’s Bi-fold folding exterior doors and exterior French doors is developing to become one of the leading growth areas, both in the home improvement and new build sectors.
The Bi-fold exterior folding door range is available in four popular widths and has the ability to instantly transform the home or enhance a new home extension, manufactured with ultimate security in mind the door ranges utilise the latest 5 point locking system and incorporate 24mm low ‘E’ double glazing with warm edge technology for increased thermal efficiency.
Positioned at the premium sector of the market the Premdor folding external door ranges are made to the highest specification using only premium grade timbers and are designed to make an impressive statement of style.
Additionally, all the timber used in the construction of the Premdor window ranges is sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). A wide variety of window styles exist, based upon vertical sliding sash, casement windows and bay windows. All Premdor windows come with a ‘C’ rating for standard energy efficiency, however ‘A’ rated is available upon request. All glazed windows are supplied with multi-point locks for total security.
As a direct result of carefully constructed research into the RMI market and talking to builders in the new build sector, Premdor developed Speedset Plus, an adjustable doorset which is unique to the building and construction sector.
Speedset Plus protects quality, saves time and therefore reduces costs by allowing the doorset to be simply adjusted by +/- 10mm to compensate for variances within a wall thickness. The simplicity of the system means a Speedset Plus doorset can be installed in less than twenty minutes, with no specialist joinery skills.
With doors pre-hung, the doorset can be supplied with pre-mitred architrave and skirting if required. These are available in re-coatable white foil, oak or ash to match Premdor’s range of standard foil doors. The system is so versatile, it can be fitted much later in the building programme, thereby avoiding possible damage risk. Speedset Plus is the perfect solution for imperfect walls.
As a company Premdor has long shared dominance of the UK door and window manufacturing market and is established as a leading supplier to the housebuilder sector along with retail, Premdor is a wholly owned subsidiary of Masonite, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of interior and entry doors.
