"Have had various issues with the installers of my windows. But the product itself is just fabulous! House has never been as warm! So happy, well worth the money. "
"Very pleased with Bi-folds noticed big difference from are old patio double glazed doors, fitters had radio on outside and you could hardly hear it and we think it made room warmer."
"It was obvious to see by both looks and operations that it was a quality product "
"Brilliant doors and they look great! Would highly recommend "
"Beautiful doors, professionally fitted for a good price. "
"Good quality product. Bi-fold doors far better than our old sliding doors. "
"Origin Bi fold doors are absolutely great, very easy to glide back to open and close. Made a difference to the room. "
"Doors very good but small issue with finish on leading edge of door. Silver cover bar does not extend to top of door. Examples in Orion Windows showroom no better. Poor finishing to an otherwisea good product. Orion Windows chased up with yourselves and was promised a call from your technical team to explain the problem but nothing forthcoming. (See attached photo) Disappointed customer"
"Fitted quickly and expertly by Essex Bifolds. It all works very smoothly."
""Romsey Conservatories provided an excellent service and patiently held the quote while we obtained planning permission for our 5 panel cornerless bifold on a second floor balcony overlooking the sea. They liaised extremely well with us and our builder who was managing the work, and the installation went very smoothly, on time and with no problems. After sales service has been faultless. The end result is stunning!""
"Product very good - would have welcomed a guide to maintain the bi-fold doors for on going reference especially as i believe they may have dropped making opening difficult. But no faulting the quality. "
"The doors give a lot of light and are easy to move"
"we had a new bifold patio door fitted by indelux windows of Cheltenham Gloucestershire. very pleased with the origin door and also very pleased with the fitters a very clean and tidy job .many thanks"
"Beautiful door. Will be purchasing my front door as well soon as the funds are available. "
"The quality and final finish is excellent. The installation was done by contractors who installed without any problems. The Warranty validity is reflection of the quality. "
"Only had the the bi fold doors about a month and seem so far to be okay. However, I have two issues, firstly condensation on the frame, it is a new build so this could be due to the building drying out and time will tell. Secondly, I require a door restrictor, but Origin do not offer one, consequently my only option is to add a cabin hook which will not improve the appearance of the doors. "
"Beautiful stylish big old doors , Easy to use and maintain "
"Very pleased, with the panel, which goes beautifully with the doors."
"We had Origin Bi fold patio doors fitted to our new extension,and they look fantastic . The doors are well made using good quality fittings.We have Sun in the mornings so they make the Garden feel part of the house."
"Dropped in to their showroom unannounced with my 2 small children. They were extremely accommodating and I didn't feel that they were at all annoyed with my children rubbing their grubby hands on their lovely clean display doors! The order process was straight forward and I felt informed throughout. The fitting was completed quickly and the staff were very nice. Would reccomended Bristol Bi-fold. "
"Our bifold doors have enabled us to bring the outdoors indoor! The product is faultless and so, so easy to keep clean."
Winter 2015 saw Origin get involved with an incredible project for a local Scout Group who required aluminium windows and a French door to complete the build of their brand new hall.
On 19th September 2015, exactly 13 months after the build began, the new hall was opened by Mayor Joan Spiers. It is the first venue that 17th Reigate Scout Group has been able to call home since they were founded way back in 1915. Over those 100 years, they have always shared venues with various other groups, but when the most recent host, St Joseph’s Church, announced plans for a new build that did not meet the group’s requirements, the opportunity for a purpose-built venue presented itself.
Despite such an opportunity, the group required firm support in order for the build to go ahead. After presenting their plans to landlords, parents, committees and the parish, the response was an overwhelming and resounding yes with the landlords going as far as offering a 50 year lease on the new property.
Funds for the new build were understandably limited so the group pulled in as many resources as possible from within, including planners, architects and fitters with 90% of the internal fitting being carried out by Scouting or community volunteers.
What made the project even more special was that the Group raised a considerable amount of the funds themselves through local events, sponsored hikes and an agonisingly close attempt of breaking the world record time for assembling a mile of pennies.
Despite such efforts, Group Scout Leader Mike Phillipson, knew it would also take incredible generosity from suppliers to help the group achieve their dream. They saved on costs wherever possible to the point where they stored 4 tons of timber from an old parish hall due to be demolished for two years and moved it six times so that they didn’t have to needlessly spend on flooring.
Although Mike was looking to save wherever possible, he had no intention of compromising on the quality nor safety of the windows or front door. This would ensure the longevity of the venue and minimise disruption due to the lack of maintenance required. With the Scout Group mostly needing the hall for evenings and weekends, security was understandably of high importance; a reason why Mike reached out to Origin.
“Origin were the only company to reply so enthusiastically. The emphasis on security, attention to detail and the desire to deliver a top-quality product came screaming across the whole way.”
The 8pt locking system on the door accompanied with the quality finish and security features of Origin products mean 17th Reigate Scout Group now have everything they need for pure peace of mind when away from the site.
Additionally, the freedom of choice when it came to choosing colours for the door and windows allowed the exterior of the hall to match the colour scheme of the newly built Church Hall next door. As if all of this wasn’t enough, Origin, as standard, were able to offer their 20yr guarantee to provide further assurance to the group.
17th Reigate’s Origin door emphasises the bespoke nature of the company. Most French doors are equal sizes but 17th Reigate have one lead door (900mm) accompanied by a much narrower slave door (314mm) that can be opened to accommodate for disabled access. The Scout Group’s need for a bespoke door has not compromised the quality of it thanks to the range of configurations that Origin offer.
The group also wanted windows that allowed a lot of light to enter the hall despite being high up on the walls for safety reasons. The large frames and narrow sightlines offered by Origin fulfilled these demands and now provide the hall with plenty of natural light, additionally helping the group minimise electricity costs where possible.
Exceeding all expectations, the group have also been able to maximise the space on site enough to offer a large meeting room for internal use and occasional outside hire through their website. Looking to the future, Mike predicts that, thanks to the new build, 17th Reigate will double in size within 4 years and be able to accommodate more youngsters than ever before.
Since the completion of the build, some of the group’s youngest Scouts have been able to enjoy their first sleepover in the hall. This event would not have been possible without the exceptional security and thermal efficiency of Origin’s windows and doors.
Long associated with local charities and community projects, Origin were keen to get involved with such a worthy cause after seeing the dedication shown by the entire Scout Group. The family and community-ethos that runs deep at Origin meant the decision to help in every way possible was never one in question.
