Everglade is the first UK supplier to offer PremiLine PRO, the new Lifetime Homes-compliant sliding patio door from Kömmerling.
Designed by Kömmerling, PremiLine PRO is the only sliding patio door which meets the qualifying design criteria of the standard and has Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation.
Building on their long-standing relationship, the two companies worked closely throughout the development and testing process leading to the creation of PremiLine PRO, emphasising Everglade’s position as the UK’s leading supplier of better Kömmerling windows and doors.
The reasoning behind Lifetimes Homes is simple. They are ordinary homes designed to create better living environments for everyone, whether homeowners are raising small children, coping with illness, or dealing with reduced mobility.
PremiLine PRO has been developed with Fullex Locks to satisfy the requirement for door handles and operating controls to be no higher than 1200mm from the floor. This adds to the convenience of a home and supports the changing needs of individuals and families at different stages of life.
The new PremiLine PRO patio door also carries Secured by Design accreditation. It’s got the UK government’s new Document Q regulations on home security covered too.
This is particularly significant as many other PVCu patio doors have failed to achieve the high security standards and don’t meet the new regulations.
PremiLine PRO is available with an enhanced security upgrade kit, which includes a bespoke interlock shootbolt system operated by a small, stylish doorknob to the side face of the interlock.
Such is the confidence in the upgrade that lock manufacturer Fullex is offering a security guarantee scheme. It offers up to £1,000 to replace any damaged PremiLine PRO door as well as compensation in the event of break-in, for up to 10 years after the installation date.
The full Kömmerling PremiLine sliding patio door range is also environmentally friendly, as it’s extruded using the company’s Greenline lead-free PVCu compound.
Jay Patel, Sales Director of Everglade says: “Kömmerling has what I believe to be the best range of products in the industry. It matches our ambition to supply the best windows and doors to our customers. PremiLine PRO is a high quality addition to our range of doors, it’s simple to operate, fully secure and in line with the increasingly-popular Lifetime Homes standard.”
