Made to measure UPVC/Aluminium Door

Hi All,

I'm struggling to find anywhere from an initial Google that could quote me for a bespoke UPVC or Aluminium door for the size I want.

I want to replace the French doors that are currently in place. Where the join for the doors in the middle is, it takes up a huge section that blocks light, our view etc.

The aperture is standard for French doors at 1190

I would like to have one large single fully glazed door but I am struggling.

Any ideas or people you can recommend?

Kindest

Hi mate.

I had a look, and b&q does a glazed back door up to a max of 1000mm. You could fit that with a small 100mm glazed panel at one side perhaps.

https://crystal-direct-configurator.co.uk/b_q/#design-c

Alternatively, you could go for a solid wood door to get a custom size. @dchapman88 can help with that, as his company makes bespoke doors and windows.

Might also be worth a quick visit to a local door supplier, as they may well be able to make what you want.

Good luck!!

Can't find anything yet.

Would an offset one work better?

Thank you for your suggestions so far

Internal doors it seems are no problem for up to 2metres on all the standard configurators etc but not for a single panel external door.

@dchapman88 I'd be very happy if you were able to quote for a pre-hung external door with total outer frame size of 1190 x by 2050. Standing outside looking at the door, hinges on the left side and opening outwards towards the garden. With the pane of glass in the middle as large as possible.

Is this possible?

Thank you but the reason for wanting a single door is so that we get a totally unobstructed view out and for light coming in.

The difference on a sunny day with the french doors open vs closed even though there is full height glass in both sides, the light difference in the room is quite astonishing.

Also just more pleasant to look out with nothing in the way.

Really appreciate you looking for me.

If you don't mind wood. I'd get a quote from a local joinery company. I know you can have wider doors in timber than uPVC. It will give you a starting point

We replaced old aluminium sliding patio doors with wooden french doors and very pleased. Had we gone with plastic would have been looking at inserts, which imo didn't look great.
