28mm Double Glazing

28mm Double Glazing for porches
28mm Double Glazing

All front porches come with 28mm double glazed windows and doors. The windows are built from 2 panes of 4mm toughened glass on either side of a 20mm aluminium spacer bar. This is designed to absorb any moisture within the sealed unit, preventing condensation inside the glazing.


These sealed units comply to BS EN 1279 standards. This EN standard covers the requirements for insulating glass units, including thermal and sound insulation. The sealed units are independently tested to show that they will not suffer from any form of condensation within the unit.

Industry leading window and Door Locking

Industry leading window and Door Locking for w2.4m Porch

Domestic Locking System

The security of your front porch is a key priority of ours, especially as this is a space that you will store belongings and will be in clear sight of others. Therefore, we have included our industry-leading 12-point locking system on the single PVCu door, as well as multipoint locking windows which feature secure key locking handles.


Our 12-point locking consists of four shoot bolts, three mushroom-headed espagnolettes, three hook bolts, a locking latch and a 6-pin euro cylinder. All our windows feature a multi-point locking system consisting of espagnolettes which move in opposite directions into metal keeps. Why would you risk your possessions by using less?

Pressure Treated Bearers

Pressure Treated Bearers for 2.4m groove effect porch#
Pressure Treated Bearers

All of our porches have pressure-treated floor bearers as standard. This treatment prevents the timber bearers from rotting for up to 10 years and causing your front porch to sink. Pressure treatment forces the wood preservative into the timber rather than simply dip treating (essentially just covering the exterior) like many companies still do. Who wants to have to annually deconstruct and re-treat the bearers each year?!


Due to this costly but effective process, we can offer our customers a genuine 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation on the bearers.  We do however recommend applying a good quality water repellent to the timber to prolong its longevity. Shockingly, many of our competitors still offer untreated bearers to keep their costs down, so beware!


All our Pressure Treated timber is for User Class 3.

There's no need for you or your guests to 'duck' on the way in through the door of the porch. With a tall walkthrough height of 6'0" (1.84m) you’re free to move in and out of the porch with ease. 

Fully Insulated with Polyisocyanurate Sandwich Pan

Fully Insulated Sandwich Panels
Our porches are easy to heat, and maintain a warm temperature in the winter while staying cool in the summer. Our porches feature polyisocyanurate insulation in the walls, roof and floor, creating a warm and inviting entrance. Polyisocyanurate is known for being a far superior insulative material than the alternatives of polystyrene, Rockwool or bubble wrap.

High Internal Eaves Height

High Internal Eaves Height
Our porches are designed with a high internal eaves height reaching 2.11m.  There's plenty of room inside for people to walk around without bumping their heads and plenty of space making for a fully usable porch.

Fire Resistant Inner Walls

Fire Resistant Inner Walls
The inner walls of our front porches are made using a fire-resistant fibreboard – a hard-wearing material made from recycled paper fibres and Gypsum (Hydrous Calcium Sulphate). You can be sure in the knowledge that your front porch has increased protection from fire. The fibreboard comes unpainted, but you can decorate it to your taste, as it is a good surface for paint and is easy to wallpaper

Slate Effect WPC Roof

Slate Effect WPC Roof
The 10mm thick WPC roof has been uniquely designed with an attractive slate effect finish, a feature that you won’t find elsewhere on the market. This WPC roof is not just aesthetically pleasing, but is easy to maintain and is water resistant, making it long lasting against all forms of British weather.

*Please be advised that some exclusions may apply depending on property age, where it is situated etc. If in doubt, please check with your local planning authority.
