A new orangery in Derbyshire

A new orangery in Derbyshire We’re just completing a new orangery for The Gate Hotel in Langwith, Derbyshire.  The landlady contacted Glazedale because she was looking for a reliable, local, family business who could give this project the personal touch – and have it completed in time for the pre-Christmas functions that this pub and hotel had planned. With UPVC frames, the orangery will be as practical and hard-wearing as it is attractive, designed to fit the style of the building. The lantern roofs will let in plenty of daylight giving it a pleasing, airy, ambience.

What is the difference between and orangery and a conservatory?

What is the difference between and orangery and a conservatory? Historically a much older concept than the conservatory, the orangery is seeing a resurgence in popularity amongst home owners who want to some extra space to their property.

Highly secure bi-fold doors

Highly Secure Bi-fold Doors One reason we choose to work with Origin bi-fold doors is their high level of security which exceeds all the latest stringent security standards including Pas23/24.
