Northern Ireland based manufacturer of market leading composites, Apeer, has shown that it has true international appeal thanks to a recent installation of one of its contemporary MODO doors and matching sidelight ‘Down Under’, in New South Wales.
The company, which has been at the cutting edge of composite door design since it launched its first doorset back in 2003, has had its products fitted to homes the length and breadth of the United Kingdom over the years – and has now shown that it has the credentials to attract customers from as far afield as Australia.
Apeer’s Marketing Manager, Linda Tomb, said: “The homeowner, who lives in Mittagong, NSW, was building his house to German Passivhaus standards so choosing an energy efficient entrance door was obviously an extremely important part of the project.
“After researching a variety of options online, the homeowner eventually contacted us directly with his requirements,” continued Linda. “He wanted a modern style door with outstanding thermal properties and liked the stainless steel effect on our MODO doors.”
Apeer’s Modern Door (MODO) collection is a design led portfolio of doors that feature all the security, durability and energy efficiency associated with its Traditional and Contemporary ranges. So, as well as offering a variety of stylish designs, a broad palette of premium and bespoke colours and a 10 year structural guarantee, MODO doors also feature a double rebated system for additional draft protection, toughened, 60mm thick triple glazing and ‘A’ rated energy efficiency as standard.
Linda added: “The lead time was a little longer than usual due to customs clearance and shipping, and we needed to provide special packaging for the courier, but we shipped directly to the address in Australia. Now it’s been installed, the customer has told us that he’s delighted with his door and it compliments his property perfectly – he’s even had lots of positive comments from neighbours and passers by, so while this might have been the first door that we’ve supplied to Australia, we’re hoping that it might not be the last!”
