no MORE COMPROMISES
Centor Integrated Doors offer inside-outside living all year round
Specifying large glazed doors in your self-build or extension is a great way to maximise light and make the most of picturesque views. But plenty of self-builders fail to consider the potential downsides of living with such vast expanses of glass. You’ve considered product quality, security and thermal performance. But have you thought about how you will manage insects, glare and loss of privacy? All too often, impressively wide spans of glazing that deliver the ‘wow factor’ can also leave an interior space feeling too cold, too bright and too ‘on display’. And then there’s the issue of invading insects… Award-winning Centor Integrated Doors were designed to enable homeowners to enjoy all the benefits of inside-outside living, without any of the compromises. Quality door panels glide smoothly with fingertip-touch operation and all hardware is concealed. Better still, innovative, retractable insect screens and shades are built into the doorframe, disappearing discreetly when not in use. Customers can select different types of insect mesh and light-filtering or blackout shades to suit their property and location. With Integrated Doors, whether you live close to water, fields or even in the city, the ability to open your doors to enjoy fresh air no longer leaves you at the mercy of mosquitoes, flies and moths. In Derbyshire, homeowner Deb, who specified a 205 Integrated Folding Door in her extension, says: “The insect screen has been really useful. Some friends nearby fitted other folding doors, and every evening they’ve got stacks of insects in their kitchen. Not us though!” Meanwhile, glare and lack of privacy are also common problems. If your panoramic door is overlooked by neighbours or your sunny, south-facing room risks furnishings fading in the bright light, you no longer need to use curtains or blinds, with swathes of material that detract from the clean lines of your interior. In County Durham, Gillian is delighted with the Integrated 405 Folding Door in her recently converted granary — especially the fully retracting blackout shades: “The integrated blinds really appealed to me. I didn’t want any curtains in my house, but I wanted the capability to occasionally block the light out and to close the windows off at night. These blinds are just incredible!” Made to order from a range of customisable options, Centor Integrated Doors are sold and serviced though a network of Integrated Dealers.
