What to look for…

What do most people want when they buy windows and doors? We suggest it’s always a mixture of fashion and function. What they look like, and how secure and reliable they are.

Experts in Manufacturing & Design

As Dunster House started life originally as a specialist uPVC manufacturer back in 1994, we like to think we know a thing or two about making both windows and doors. Put that together with our specialist skills in designing and making log cabins, and they are the perfect partnership.

Getting the best for less

We believe our log cabin range is simply the best on the market – and to prove it, we use deluxe windows and doors as standard on most of our cabins at no extra cost.

Quite simply, we don’t believe in compromising on quality!

Go compare

We are proud of the time and effort we put into our unique designs.

With a little research we think you will agree ours are the standards that others need to measure up to:

  • 24mm glass Double Glazing* – thicker, for greater thermal efficiency
  • Manufactured to European Standard EN1279 – to prevent condensation between panes
  • Toughened glass – for increased safety and security
  • Weatherproof gasket seals – to keep out the wind and rain
  • Part-laminated timber to reduce twisting and warping, improving strength and stability

We use 4mm toughened glass in our windows and doors, for increased security and resilience. It’s better than 3mm horticultural glass which is commonly found in garden buildings, as it’s much harder to break, as well as being much more scratch resistant than any of the plastic alternatives such as Styrene, Perspex or Acrylic.

Doors with:

  • 6 pin Euro Cylinder lock – the same as a modern domestic door
  • Multi-Point locking (on the lead door) with 4 locking points (a locking catch, a hook bolt and two opposing cams) – to prevent the door being lifted out of the locked position
  • Heavy Duty hinges – to stand up to extensive wear and tear

Our doors use four different locking points to give you maximum security, including a locking catch, hook bolt and two opposing cams. The opposing cams move in opposite directions, locking the lead door to the secondary door, preventing the door from being lifted out of the locked position, whilst the hook bolt holds the two doors together in the other direction preventing them from being pried apart. This is together with a 6pin Euro cylinder, the same type of lock barrel you find on a modern domestic door, and just what most insurance companies ask for.

Windows with:

  • Multi-Point locking with espagnolette locks – harder to force open than other roller cam systems
  • Key locking handles – domestic style like found a house, for high security
  • Anti-Jemmy riser blocks – prevents being forced open by pushing the sash sideways
  • Outward opening windows – to accommodate any curtains and blinds, and not encroach on the interior space
  • Domestic friction stays – so they open right up and hold in place

Our Windows also feature a multi point locking system, with mushroom headed espagnolette locks. Once the espagnolette locks engage with the keeps it makes it harder for the windows to be forced open as they hook underneath the edge of the keeps. This is an advantage over the simple roller cam system that you can find on some other garden buildings windows, and serves a similar purpose to the hookbolt we feature on our door locks. The windows also have anti-jemmy riser blocks fitted, which prevent the windows from being forced open by somebody simply pushing the sash sideways and disengaging the locks, similar to the function of the opposing cams on the door lock.
