Sizes Explained



Using our interactive pricing software we allow you to input a maximum and minimum height. This varies depending on whether you are choosing a sill or not.

Please take a note of the Door Sizes box when placing your order.

No Sill

If your door does not require a sill then make sure your inputed size falls between the maximum or minimum size of PVC no sill section (Marked with Blue Outline). And also make sure you select the no sill option.

With Sill

If your door requires a sill then make sure your inputed size falls between the maximum or minimum size of PVC with sill section (Marked with Orange Outline). And also make sure you select the with sill option. (85mm or 150mm).

Thresholds and Sill Diagrams









Please check that your door will not be fowled by your finished floor when open

Please note that Low Threshold is a low threshold. There is 7mm clearance from bottom of door, this wouldn't even give you clearance for a doormat.


Explanation Of Packers


15mm Packers are recommended for plaster line. This is because an average plaster thickness in a house is 10-20mm thick, if a packer wasn't used it would result in hinges being tight up against the plaster.
