With modern homeowners wanting more security than ever before means the things to consider when selecting new doors for either residential or commercial properties can be very complex and confusing….
However, we understand these challenges and that’s why ALL our UPVC doors are designed and built to exceed your expectations.
As well as being seen in an attractive range of colours and finishes to suit both domestic and commercial properties, each has been very carefully precision-engineered to ensure optimum functionality.
On a warm summer’s day, there’s nothing better throwing open your house to the elements, letting the fresh air come flooding in.
Our French doors are a more traditional style and full of character.
Unlike timber, using UPVC gives you more options than ever before.
They also come with some real benefits, such as the latest security and superior energy efficiency.
If you’re looking for a simple, cost-effective and attractive solution to bring more space and natural light into your home, sliding patio doors are the perfect option for you.
Offering both value and versatility, it’s easy to see why they are the most popular model in the whole of the UK.
With our UPVC sliding doors from Eurocell, you can have lots of options to customise your Patio doors to your home.
The specification is unmatched in the Composite door market, thanks to the solid timber core build of our products and thanks to our exclusive agreements with specialist suppliers of door furniture and hardware.
Our 48mm doors are 10% thicker than our nearest competitors, helping make them the most secure and energy efficient money can buy.
We offer 256 colour combinations with an option of having 20 colours on either side.
These range from contemporary colours to luxurious and lifelike woodgrains.
Our products are also extremely secure, thanks to our Avantis lock which carries the industry’s largest deadbolt.
We also have another high security locking mechanisms for French and Stable doors and have just recently launched the latest AV2 lock
This imitates the appearance of traditional key operated locks on Period doors yet features high-security multi-point locking as standard.
The advantages of selecting the Bi-folding option are that they can fold all the way back to allow the best outside/inside living.
Unlike traditional sliding doors, which only open up half of the space, Bi-folding options can fold right back to just a few inches of the opening, this means that there is a greater space.
This allows you to get a real sense of freedom when on a good day you can open up your home and bring the outdoors in.
Our Bi-fold doors benefit from multi-point stainless steel locking mechanisms, toughened/laminated glass and come with a high-security lock cylinder.

We are happy to inform you that any door you purchase and have installed from ourselves at Sovereign Home Improvements is extremely secure. That’s down to our Avantis lock. This has the largest – and best – locking mechanism that you can find within the door installation sector in the UK today.
If it’s French and patio doors that you are looking to have installed then you will be glad to hear we have a similarly high secure locking mechanism for those too. The AV2 lock mimics a traditional key lock in appearance but comes with impressive tough multi-point locking to allow you to sleep securely in your bed at night.
In a word – no! We use the Avantis lock on our composite and uPVC doors while patio doors and French windows all feature the latest AV2 lock. Both are fitted with a revolutionary locking system known as Ultion. This dynamic mechanism ensures that your door can’t be opened by anyone other than yourself and your family. Even if a possible intruder manages to snap the lock twice, it still wouldn’t open. That’s how tough it is! And even if you leave the key in the lock while you’re at home, it wouldn’t make any difference when it came to an attempted break-in. The locking system would remain as effective as ever. In other words, Ultion is the best locking system you can find on the UK market today.
Unlike a composite door which is a blend of various materials, a uPVC door is made entirely from plastic. This makes the latter lower in price and, as a result, it still commands a certain popularity amongst sectors of the population. However, the uPVC door doesn’t have the same thermal heat retaining properties of a composite door and, in most cases, when a uPVC external door is fitted, a second moulded panel is required for inside the home. Both doors are good-looking and retain their smart appearance for a number of years. Having said that, the composite door is expected to last longer than its uPVC opposite and tends to be more secure.
A composite door is, as the name suggests, made of not just one material but a combination of materials – all of which are chosen for their specific properties.
Our own composite doors here at Sovereign Home Improvements, for instance, have a solid timber core but also contain uPVC and glass reinforced plastic. The materials are glued then fused together under incredible pressure to form a solid block. In our case our composite doors are 48mm thick. This is a 10 per cent increase on our nearest competitor, making our doors the thickest – and most energy-efficient – on the market at this moment in time.
