Hi.

Had some windows and doors fitted. Really happy except for this bit at the bottom of the French doors. No idea what you would call this (weather bar?).

Doesn't look level and not the same lengh.

Is it correct? Should the middle bits go all the way to the end? If wrong, can it be rectified?

Any comments before I call them up.

It needs a bit of a gap to avoid it hitting the vertical door sill. You may be able to get an end cap to tidy it up, or perhaps put some white silicon in?

It just looks like cheap quadrant strip, which has been stuck in place, with the raw cut edges on display. I would ask them to find something more suitable.

Nope thats proper drip bar. Quadrant trim is normal solid through. This is hollow ( ish ) so that it can fix over the screws that hold it to the door

PVC drip bar, comes in lengths and is cut to size, tolerances need to be left at each end for expansion and also so the drip fitted to the main 'master' door doesn't catch the flying muillion fitted to the slave door, can sometimes be cut at a slight angle to create a leading edge. Also unless they've been super glued on these will probably still slide on the button screws, could try equalling them out, if not the new ones need to be cut

No, I have a few yards of it in my workshop right now, bought a few weeks ago. It is sold as and was bought as 'Quadrant Trim' and under the hard surface is expanded plastic. Cut, it leaves a rough end face. You can see the rough end face in the op's second photo.

Hi Harry what your talking about is plain and simple pvc quadrant, foam filled with a hard outer, the OP has a proper drip bar (zoomed in)as per my link above, you can see it's chambered and hollow

Ok, my apologies in close up it is obvious, but it still looks unfinished. It needs ends pieces to be fitted.
