Are Everbrite Direct doors easy to fit? Yes. Our doors come with comprehensive fitting instructions. To make life even easier, you can buy a fixing kit with sealant and fixers if you don't already have them. The fitting instructions list all the tools you will need but if you’re a DIY enthusiast, you’ll probably already have everything you need.
What is PVCu? PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride Unplasticised, and refers to the type of extremely durable plastic that is used for making windows and doors. The letter u (which sometimes appears after the letters PVC) stands for unplasticised and simply means that the plastic is strong and rigid. Modern PVCu contains stabilisers that protect it from the sun’s rays, ensuring that your windows and doors won’t yellow even after many years. PVCu is perfect for windows and doors because it won’t warp or twist and it’s extremely strong, hard wearing and requires very little maintenance to remain looking as good as new.
How long has Everbrite Direct been making windows and doors for? Everbrite Direct is the online division of Everbrite Home Improvements Ltd, an established double glazing company with over 25 years of experience in manufacturing PVCu windows and doors for both the public and the building industry. When you buy from Everbrite Direct you can rest assured that you’re buying a high quality product from a company with a reputation for excellence.
Why do Everbrite Direct windows and doors cost so much less than those from other double glazing companies? Because we manufacture all our own doors and windows and don’t have to buy them in from another company, we can offer the largest range of windows, doors and conservatories available online with discounts that, until now, have only been available to commercial customers – with no compromise on quality.
How strong are Everbrite Direct’s PVCu doors? All our doors have an extremely strong leaf and frame with reinforced, welded joints and 3 security hinges. All our moulded PVCu door panels come with locking points and fixings that are concealed when the door is closed.
Are Everbrite Direct windows and doors guaranteed for 10 years? Yes. We manufacture all our windows and doors in our own state-of-the-art factory, so we can be confident that they are the highest quality. Our 10 year guarantee means that you can be sure that your windows and doors will keep your home safe, secure and looking good for many years to come.
Which is more secure – internal or external beading? Beading is the part of the frame that holds the door panels in place and all Everbrite Direct doors are beaded on the INSIDE of the frame to make sure that the panel cannot be removed from the outside. This is without a doubt the most secure option.
Some companies argue that external beading is less prone to leaks, but all Everbrite Direct doors have drainage channels moulded into the frames to ensure that our window’s are not only secure but will remain watertight in even the most extreme conditions.
What’s the difference between toughened and laminated glass? The main difference between the two types of glass is that toughened glass, whilst extremely strong, will shatter if struck with sufficient force. However, unlike normal glass, toughened glass will break into many small pieces rather than large, dangerous shards. Laminated glass will crack, but is unlikely to smash, making it desirable for areas where extremely high security is required, but dangerous for most domestic applications where you may need to break a window pane in order to escape during a fire.
Because of this, all Everbrite Direct windows and doors come with toughened glass as standard.
