What's Included?

ALGEMEEN

Wat is het materiaal van onze deuren?


Onze deuren zijn gemaakt van hoogste kwaliteit verzinkt staal die een poedercoating krijgen. Deze poedercoating heeft veel voordelen voor de levensduur van uw stalen deur. Het biedt bescherming tegen corrosie en elke vorm van roest en oppervlaktes worden helemaal slag-, kras- en stootvast gemaakt. Het is nagenoeg denkbaar in elke RAL-kleur. Dit alles zorgt voor een langere levensduur én is gemakkelijk te reinigen.




Welke verdelingen zijn mogelijk?


Bij VIDA DOORS is alles mogelijk. Er zijn zeer veel mogelijkheden bij het kiezen van de verdeling. Wij werken met glaslatten met een doorsnede van 5 x 20 mm die achteraf worden geplaast op het glas. Zodus kan u hier zo creatief in gaan als u wenst, en de look creëren die u voor ogen had. De verdeling is volledig naar keuze en beïnvloed de prijs niet van uw offerte. Graag meer inspiratie gewenst? Vraag via info@vidadoors.be onze offerte aan.




Zijn ook andere kleuren mogelijk dan RAL 9005?


Dat kan zeker! Zwart RAL 9005 gebruiken wij Standaard voor onze stalen deuren. Alle andere kleuren van het RAL-kleurenpalet zijn ook mogelijk, tegen een vergoeding van 10% op de prijs van de deur.




Hoe meet ik correct mijn deuropening?


Om achter de juiste afmeting te komen meet u de opening in de breedte, evenals de hoogte. Om het zo nauwkeurig te meten kan u een lasermeter gebruiken of een rolmeter.

Het opmeten van de deuren is anders voor nieuwe deuren in een ruwbouw dan wanneer je bestaande binnendeuren vervangt.

Wil je je deuren vervangen, dan kan je aan de hand van je huidige deur de juiste deurmaten bepalen. Daarbij moet je wel rekening houden met de deurkader, die worden verwijderd wanneer u een stalen deur wil plaatsen. U meet dus de deur van muur tot muur, inclusief de deurkader.

Bij nieuwbouw is het belangrijk dat je de deuren pas opmeet als de chape er ligt en de muren voorzien zijn van pleisterwerk. Meet de hoogte van de ruwe muuropening vanaf de vloer en meet de breedte van de ruwe muuropening. Doe dit op 3 verschillende (links, midden en rechts) en noteer de kleinste maat.

Na goedkeuring van de offerte, komen wij bij u langs voor een technische opmeting om de opgegeven maten te controleren vooraleer uw deur in productie gaat.




Uit welke soorten glas kan ik kiezen?


U kan kiezen uit 9 verschillende glassoorten, deze vindt u hier. Transparent VSG 33.1 veiligheidsglas is inclusief in de prijs, andere soorten kosten 50 € / M2 Het transparant veiligheidsglas bestaat uit twee glasbladen van 3 mm, die bij elkaar gehouden worden door 1 folie laag. Dit glas heeft een totale dikte van 6mm. Het voordeel van veiligheidsglas is dat het zeer geschikt is tegen glasbreuk en dat het zeer veilig in gebruik is. Deze types vallen onder veiligheidsglas:

  • Versterkt staaldraad glas
  • Melk glas/satijn melk glas
  • Fumé bruin of grafiet glas
Decoratief figuratief glas (4mm, géén veiligheidsglas)
  • Kathedraal glas Min
  • Flutes glas




Wat is de levertermijn ?


Na goedkeuring van de offerte, komen wij bij u langs voor een technische opmeting vooraleer uw deur in productie gaat. U moet dan 8 tot 10 weken leveringstermijn rekenen tot aan de plaatsing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I’m totally new to this. Can I still join?


Yes! Along with covering more advanced topics like facilitation and leadership, we also cover the basics in our course. Our content & live classes will give you what you need to have a deep understanding of what the Relational Inquiry Approach is and how to do it well.




What is the Relational Inquiry Approach?


Rleational Inquiry Approach is a transformational modality that will shine a light on beliefs and create possibilities for a radical shift in identity. This method has been cultivated by Peter Benjamin, Mark Boughton, and Jason Digges after more than a decade of experience as established leaders in the field of Circling.

How long will it take me to complete the course?


This depends on a number of factors including how much time you can commit to reviewing the educational content and how often you attend classes.

Live classes are optional, though attending them would be required if you’re interested in advancing to the higher levels of our course.




What if I do not WANT to be a facilitator?


That's completely fine. Whether you are aspiring to lead groups or just hone your skills as a communicator, you are welcome to join.




Can I become a facilitator after completing this program?


Yes! When you reach Level 3 of our course, you are invited to start leading beginner classes on our platform. We also offer a trainer-in-training program to a select number of Level 3 students which includes mentorship and the ability to facilitate more advanced classes.

Can I cancel at any time?


Yes, you can cancel at any time.




Do I have to be a facilitator to join?
