When it comes to replacing windows in period and heritage properties, there are lots of options and the authenticity is getting better all the time. But what about when it comes to doors? Until recently you faced a stark choice: the authenticity but high maintenance of traditional wood or aesthetic compromise of an authentic-looking composite door with its far-from-authentic frame. But as Halifax’s Ryburne Windows is proving, the Deceuninck Autentica range has solved this problem. Now planners and homeowners can have a high security, low maintenance, aesthetically pleasing composite door and an equally authentic frame to match.
Autentica is a range of decorative profiles and trims. Authenticity is achieved through the range being available in three different styles: Baroc, with its subtle recessed looks, Renaissance with its prominent trims or Romantic with its elegant traverse shape and available in six nautred-inspired Deuctone colours. Autentica products are based on Deceuninck 3000 zendow series profile platform and offer a robust, but decorative product with excellent energy efficient properties.
Halifax-based Ryburne Windows has been having considerable success with the Autentica range. As Peter Willemse, Ryburne’s Managing Director says, “There is a real gap in the market for genuinely authentic-looking products and Autentica decorative profiles fit the bill perfectly.” The team at Ryburne has also been discovering that this market can be opened up even further when Autentica is used in combination with composite doors to create a stunning entrance feature.
The team has recently been working on replacement doors in several period properties throughout the area. The doors all needed to sit in a deep outerframe to fit the existing aperture. Baroc from the Autentica range fitted the bill perfectly and the results are utterly stunning and impressively authentic.
Ryburne Windows supply the trade and retail markets. The company’s reputation is one of professionalism and it prides itself on its commitment to quality, service and value at every level of the business. Ryburne manufactures a range of Deceuninck products and Autentica is proving a valuable addition to the portfolio as more and more people discover that PVC-U can offer the perfect combination of heritage looks and cutting edge technology.
