Case study


10 years of bespoke glazing solutions


About us Although our name may sound German, we’re actually a British company and proud of it. The name was conceived to give the correct first impression of Kloeber; when most people think of German companies you think of efficiency and well engineered products and this is most certainly the case with us. Our supply chain is also inherently European with our glass, ironmongery, locking mechanisms, frames, cladding and pressings coming from all over Europe including the UK and of course Germany! We are an independent business which is managed by it’s owners, all of whom are passionate about our company and our industry and are at the forefront of day to day operations at our headquarters in Cambridgeshire. Kloeber UK Ltd was formed in September 2006 and launched at the Grand Designs Exhibition in Birmingham. Originally aimed at the domestic retail market, we offered a suite of high end and modern bespoke timber glazing products.

On site Technical Consultations It’s all in the detail and we want to ensure that no stone is left unturned

Liaison with your appointed professionals We quickly became a market leader for timber folding sliding doors and with the launch of the innovative and now award winning FunkyFront door range in 2007, the company’s growth showed no signs of slowing down. Hard work, putting the customer first and appearances in the media, including many prime time TV shows, cemented Kloeber’s reputation and future within the glazing industry and provided the foundation to grow. The Kloeber range has developed over the years to include doors, windows and roof lights in low maintenance thermally broken aluminium, timber and composite materials. With a move to larger premises in 2011 the expansion of the company continued. 2012 saw the launch of our extensive London showroom in Sunbury-on-Thames, a year in which we were also proud to become the first company to be awarded Secured By Design status for timber Folding Sliding Doors, we also achieved this accreditation for our FunkyFront door range. Our new flagship showroom Nr Bicester, Buckinghamshire opened in January 2015. Our customer base continues to grow and now includes some of the largest house builders, developers and builders merchants in the UK, all dealt with by our dedicated Trade Sales Team, as well as our still expanding client base of architects, contractors, homeowners and self builders that are serviced by our Retail Team at our new headquarters in Huntingdon.

Frame materials TIMBER

ALUMINIUM Warm and Secure

ALUMINIUM is another great material to use for glazing frames. Its sleek appearance, slim sightlines and consistent surface finish are all elements that lend it to be specified for the more modern, contemporary project, however it is also used very successfully on period properties to create an effective contrast. All of the aluminium frame profiles we use are thermally broken by a Polyamide plastic insert, which separates the internal and external aluminium parts to avoid condensation and increase the insulation that the system achieves. Aluminium is durable and low maintenance due to its powder-coated finish.

Why do we offer such a range of different materials? Well, the term ‘Horses for Courses’ springs to mind as each project will require different boxes to be ticked by the glazing package. Each frame material choice has its perceived strengths that will be relevant to the type of project you’re undertaking, so one of the first questions you’ll be asked during your enquiry will be: ‘Timber, Aluminium or Composite?’ Your answer will form the basis of the quotation but, if you’re unsure, we’ll be happy to talk you through the reasons why one material choice might be better for your project than the others.

COMPOSITE products are a combination of a timber frame with an aluminium exterior. This brings together the great U-Values that timber achieves with all the benefits of an external powder-coated aluminium façade. The composite systems that we have in our range give you a contemporary external aesthetic with the warmth and softness of the painted or clear lacquered timber on the internal faces. This system is a fantastic choice as it gives you the best of both worlds rolled into one.

Here’s a quick run-though of the options… The TIMBER options we offer are Pine, Meranti and Oak. Each of these has to achieve a minimum density and a specific moisture content to guarantee the correct strength and longevity of the material. We use engineered timber. This is a term used to describe the manufacturing process of the solid timber sections that feature in our products and refers directly to the process of taking smaller strips of solid timber that are laminated and glued together to form the larger sections that we then cut and machine to size. Engineered timber is stronger, more stable and better quality than normal timber but we ensure that the price stays affordable so you get the best of both worlds. With paints and stains to choose from, timber can enhance any project; traditional or modern.

The self builders choice

GLASS makes up around 90% of the surface area of doors and windows and it’s a material that we really understand. There are many different glass types on the market from several different manufacturers. Such choice would be very confusing if we hadn’t already chosen the best combinations of glass panes for you from independent manufacturers to form our list of double and triple glazed units that we sell. Our sales staff will advise you on which glass combination suits your project, budget and scheme to enable you to make the right choice.

Kustomfold vs Kustomslide Our bifolding and sliding doors come in a range of materials and colours and really add that WOW FACTOR to your property. We bespoke make all of our doors to order using the best quality profiles, ironmongery and glass. Our bifolds come in a choice of thermally broken aluminium or 3 types of engineered timber and our sliding doors come in a choice of aluminium or composite (timber/aluminium). With our focus on quality, security, insulation values and aesthetics we’re sure we can guide you to the right choice for your project. Our sliding doors offer a sleek feel with minimal frame and more glass, giving an unbroken view of your garden. With a bifold door you can open up your home to the outside creating a larger living space to relax and entertain in.

Our bifold and sliding doors all come in standard sizes SEE OUR EURO RANGE ON PAGE 18

TOP TIPS Bifolds and Sliders Sliding doors really come in to their own with larger openings. Take advantage of the larger panes of glass leaving an unbroken view of your environment Always consider your floor finishes; a level threshold with a similar flooring inside and outside really creates a cohesive single space, especially when you open the whole space up with a bifold Composite will always give you a better insulating value, so if you’re looking to keep the heat in why not try our composite Kustomslide? Triple or double glazing can be used on all of our doors and windows. We surpass all of the building regs for U-Values, even with our basic glass specification Why not consider a dual colour finish, you don’t have to have the same colour inside and out, as all of our bespoke made products have a choice of any RAL colour on both sides South facing? Lots of glass? No need to worry. Our solar controlled glass will reduce the solar gain. Ask us about this option Worried about cost? Take a look at our ‘Euro’ range. The same high quality products, just with reduced options, which allow us to produce them more cost effectively for you See page 18

Windows As a major component of a new build, extension or renovation, windows are vitally important for many reasons, so choosing the right one and getting the specification right too will be crucial to the success of your project.

All our windows come with double or triple glazing

There are many things to consider; size, materials, colours, glass, U-Values, design, opening sashes, fixed panels, shapes, ironmongery and positioning within the walls of the building to name a few. We can guide you through the whole process to arrive at a suited package that compliments your building.

All our windows are fitted with safety glass as standard’

Your initial scheme will probably have been designed by your architect for planning approval. However in our sales office we like to take your scheme to the next level of detail and consider such factors as alignment of frames, number of fixed and opening panels, cill projections and glazing choices to ensure that the window package requirement is met squarely and successfully. We also look at value engineering. Every project has a budget, from the smallest replacement front door to the largest supply of glazing for multiple homes on a major development, but whatever the size of your purse, we like to think that we can design the window package to fit within it without compromising the end result. Our range of windows is expansive with timber, aluminium and composite frame materials, double and triple glazing options with different treatments such as solar-control and self-cleaning surfaces and nearly 200 colours to choose from. All of our glass is supplied as either toughened or laminated giving you peace of mind regarding security and safety.

Our range includes windows with U-Values as low as 0.79 W/m²K

Products in focus... When designing room layouts, placing furniture and observing the thoroughfares from internal doorways to the outside, the layout of your room can sometimes lend itself to using French doors. The width of French door frames are often used very successfully to line through with other glazing above, resulting in a considered elevation that really works aesthetically. Their double door opening arrangement and large panels mean that you can achieve a very real connection with your outside space or garden to leave the room feeling light, airy and spacious.


Our roof lights are available flat or pitched in thermally broken aluminium

Our single doors match our French doors perfectly for a truly suited glazing solution. Single and French doors are available in the same three material choices of timber, aluminium and composite with double and triple glazing options and are a perfect compliment to our windows.

ROOF LIGHTS Natural daylight is a great tool used by all great architects and designers to add warmth, definition and light to interior spaces.

GABLE GLAZING The most architecturally successful elevations in a new-build property or a remodelling project will always include a stand-out architectural feature that draws the eye and enhances the property. Gable glazing screens really tick this box emphatically by adding a truly dramatic dynamic resulting in architectural presence that’s impossible to ignore. Vaulted ceilings and gable glazing can add a huge wow-factor to any interior space whilst the external elevation will be stunningly enhanced by any gable glazing element. Our experience in designing and installing these fantastic features can really work to your advantage in creating the centre piece of your glazing package.

A roof light equally sized and positioned above a dining table will allow your diners to look up at the clouds and over-hanging trees. A roof light positioned above a kitchen island will drastically increase the light levels for eating and food preparation. Roof lights in living rooms, bedrooms and hallways offer tremendous relief to otherwise dark interior spaces that previously suffered from lack of natural light and over used artificial lighting. Our roof lights are designed to be positioned on flat roofs to flood light into your interior space. Whether you prefer the framed, pitched option or the minimalistic, flat roof light with its hidden frame, each can be used to literally transform your room for a surprisingly small cost.

Kloeber Klassic We don’t just do contemporary… We know that ultra modern isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and it’s important for us to understand and cater for the more traditional taste.

The Techy bit


At Kloeber we offer a slightly different route to the normal glazing purchase. This ethos is underpinned by the technical ability in our team of surveyors, draughtspersons and operations staff. As a company that offers the complete package, our expertise in all things technical is a valuable part of our service.

Period properties or new properties built in a period style don’t miss out within our range and we’re just as enthusiastic about a Georgian mansion house or a Victorian cottage as we are everything else! Our timber range of products can all be supplied with glazing bars set out to your design to give that heritage feel. We supply high quality timber sliding sash windows and why not finish off your project with a KlassicFront (right), with the same high spec as our FunkyFront range but in a classic style.

Once you’ve determined the specification of your glazing package with our sales advisors, at your instruction, one of our surveyors can visit your property to measure your apertures accurately, however the advantages don’t stop there. Our surveyors can also inject critical information into the site conversation with you, your builder, your architect and project manager to ensure that all aspects of the specification and installation detailing are covered. Backed up by our team of draughtspersons in the office, we can design and propose bespoke junctions and details to seamlessly integrate our glazing into your façade. A good selection of our drawings and data sheets are available to download directly from our website to help you specify your aperture details.

For more KlassicFront options please visit our website.

The glazing industry is governed by many legislative bodies and we will do our best to guide you through these as part of our service. As one of your main suppliers, we’ll point out things for you to consider in your Building Regulations application and highlight the relevant industry certification where applicable. Our teams of installers, installations management and after-sales staff continue that technical thread through the site stage and handover period. Our warranties cover you and your Kloeber products giving you peace of mind for years to come.

Things that we will help you consider… Configuration of the product: No. of panels Size of panels Opening sashes / fixed glazing Usability (both in terms of the product and the room it’s located in) Door threshold choices Weights and overall sizes

This is how we do it... This Oak framed barn style build in Hertfordshire really showcased everything that’s good about Kloeber, not just in terms of the supply and installation but the liaison with the Architectural Designer: our old friend Pete Tonks, the Project Management: PJT Custom Build, the Oak Frame supplier: T.J Crump Oakwrights, the direct fixed glazing specialist: Black Pig and last but not least the homeowners Johnny and Jane. Long before the project began on site we worked closely with Pete Tonks on the specification of the doors and windows to ensure we were satisfying planning restrictions, the design brief and of course the customers expectations. Many meetings were had and emails exchanged to discuss specification and detailing with drawings going back and forth from Kloeber to all of the above companies to ensure the best possible outcome for Johnny and Jane. We carried out two site visits prior to the install to discuss technical details and measure the apertures ensuring everything would fit perfectly. To successfully install aluminium frames directly into Oak our fitting team used adjustable fixings and to seal up and make the installation completely weather tight we used a Passivhaus standard sealing method using expanding insulation tapes and foam which will flex and move with the Oak over time. The ‘Kustomslide mono’ sliding doors on this job had monster pieces of glass which were delivered directly to site on the day of installation and carefully lifted by hand into place after the frames had been installed. We installed our ‘KL70w’ aluminium windows into the timber frame carefully making sure the frames were plumb and level. The glass was toe and heeled and the set back allowed for the agreed cladding detail. The job was finished off with a jet black Hamburg style ‘FunkyFront’ door which looked fantastic. The job was completed on time and to the satisfaction of the customers. We hope you’ll agree the end result looks stunning! Quote from Johnny Jones: Kloeber’s client

“Matt and the Kloeber team provided a first class service with first class products. The attention to detail was matched equally by the quality of their work and speed of installation. It was a pleasure to have them on site and the end result is stunning.”

Kloeber on TV We don’t want to brag, but we’re really proud that our doors and windows regularly appear on TV! So we thought we’d share some of the highlights from the last decade.

Grand Designs

Recognise this one...? In 2008 our timber Eurofold doors were the star of the show in The Groundhouse episode of Grand Designs. Daren Howarth built this magnificent eco home in Brittany and used 6 sets of our softwood doors stained in a light Oak finish.

In 2015 we were involved in an exciting project for upcycling TV presenter Max McMurdo featured on an Amazing Spaces House boat special. A shipping container was spectacularly transformed in to a unique, modern floating apartment. Quote from Max McMurdo Kloeber’s client ‘As soon as I started designing the shipping container houseboat the first and most important aspect was giving it a light and contemporary feel. Containers as you can see from the show are dark and dingy boxes so bifold doors were an essential item and I wanted the best. The team at kloeber went above and beyond to design, manufacture and install a door system that absolutely transforms the space. Not only do their aluminium doors look incredible from the outside finished in anthracite grey they glide open with such ease and allow me to look out at my beautiful new surroundings. Thank you kloeber you have literally changed my life!’

We’re still in contact with Daren now who has used our doors on other projects. Daren also enables Kloeber to be carbon balanced through his company C-Level who, with our help, give financial support to carbon offset projects all over the world.

Amazing Spaces Recently Kloeber’s timber bifolds, fixed panels, windows, aluminium and timber front doors have all appeared on various episodes of Building the Dream. In 2013 we appeared on DIY SOS and one of our doors was also recently spotted on The Great Interior Design Challenge and Through the Keyhole!
