There can’t be many more challenging climates in the UK for windows and doors than the Orkney Isles, off the North East tip of Scotland. So when Apeer chose to support its Double Diamond double rebated door range with the islands’ installers, the company and its local distributor flew out to meet them and see for themselves how the doors stand up to it.

“You don’t need to sample their weather for long to realise why more residents are choosing double rebated doors nowadays, said Scott Dowling, Director of mainland fabricator Inverness Glass, which supplies Apeer doors to the islands.

“For us, the Double Diamond ticks all the boxes, especially in a climate like this,” he said after he and Apeer sales manager, Alex Moore had spent a few days visiting their long-standing customer, The Glass Shop in Kirkwall, in the islands’ capital, “So it’s only natural that we go the extra mile to show it at its best in one of the places where it is most needed. The single Diamond has been very popular there for a while but the Double Diamond is really catching up.

“It was great to get together with our customers in this way but Apeer got a lot out of it as well, getting to see first-hand what the Double Diamond can do for customers and installers.”

Alex added: “We were also able to install Apeer’s Door Builder software at The Glass Shop so they can design their door in every detail before ordering. It’s a very useful piece of software and the feedback from all of our customers has been excellent, but it’s even more useful in cases like this.”

Inverness Glass will also be joining Apeer at the FIT Show 2019 where the manufacturer will feature its Single and Double Diamond doors along with the rest of its range, including the radical Lumi and Lumi2 window and door systems.
