In love with light

Today’s homeowners, designers and architects are increasingly keen to make the most of natural light. The use of non-artificial light has many benefits, from adding a sense of space through to cutting down reliance on energy-sapping artificial light. And, of course, a home designed with plenty of glass also allows you to make the most of your views, and to blur the lines between indoors and outdoors.

However, some window and door providers don’t have the range for every type of property and have supply lines that don’t have the flexibility that self-builders really need. Origin Doors and Windows certainly do.

A window on your world

With a comprehensive and versatile collection that encompasses gorgeous bi-fold and sliding doors, French doors and corner sets, slimline casement, bay, gable and Georgian bar style windows, they have everything a modern home truly needs.

Key to all of this is controlling the manufacturing process. With their own factory in Buckinghamshire, Origin can make any bespoke configuration you wish – allowing you to have the windows and doors you desire, making your dream home a reality.

It also cuts down on lead times, a much-needed boon when you have a tight deadline or other contractors dependent on your window and door installations. Origin let you specify when you want your items delivered, with some of the more popular colours available within 24 hours.

Security and style

This flexibility doesn’t come at the expense of quality. Origin use only premium aluminium that comes with a guarantee of up to 20 years. Many of the key national standards – Secured by Design, PAS 24: 2016, ISO 9001 – are met and exceeded, meaning you have a product that offers enhanced security and sustainability. The low U-values of Origin’s aluminium doors and windows will help to slash your energy bills and regulate your home’s heat for comfort.
