How do you achieve a premium seal between brick surround and the frame?
To achieve a neat seal between brick and your new architectural glazing, we use our premium sealing option, Hannoband 3E. It's a weathertight seal, vapour membrane and insulation tape all in one. It works particularly well between frame and brick to achieve a precise, weathertight seal – filling every groove, nook and void.

What type of drainage channel is used to achieve a flush threshold?
The type of drainage channel will be specified and sourced by the architect or builder on the project. Based on the flooring and the finish you would like to achieve, it is likely to be slot drainage or aco drainage system. For more information on thresholds visit our news article.
What is a floating corner configuration?
Specifying a corner configuration for a project will allow 2 glazed walls in a room to be pushed back, importantly – without the need for an intrusive fixed corner element to interrupt the design. Our Weybridge project features this stunning architectural configuration, achieved with the CP130 sliding doors system.
If you are looking to achieve this for your next residential project, arrange an Initial Project Consultation to discuss your requirements with one of the team.
What is a lift & slide sliding door system?
A lift & slide door refers to the way in which your sliding doors open. Rather than a static rail and small rollers as you would find on an inline door, with a lift & slide door such as the Reynaers CP130, the sash is lifted and hovers above the frame, giving you an effortless, smooth opening movement.

Can the Viiu Sliding Door be used to replace a bifold or sliding door?
The Viiu Sliding Door has been designed to fit into ‘new build’ openings. That is, openings that have been prepared specifically to create a building structure where the framework of the sliding door is built in to the building structure to create the frameless effect. If the sliding door is fitted as a replacement, you will need more involved structural change made.
What colours are available on the Origin range?
For the Bifold doors, sliding doors and windows, you can colour match your handle and choose from over 150 RAL colours.
What warranty is offered with the Origin range?
Origin doors and windows offer an industry-leading guarantee of up to 20 years, based on the location of installation.

Yes. Please speak to one of our Project Mangers to discuss the requirements of your project. Find out more about flush thresholds here.
