Exterior Aluminium Doors

Exterior uPVC Doors

Exterior uPVC doors are made from hollow uPVC profiles which are sub-divided into many sections to achieve high energy efficiency rates. They can be laminated in different wood grain and solid colours. Exterior uPVC doors have a very affordable price, but are not as durable as other types of exterior doors.

Benefits of exterior uPVC doors:

  • Low price,
  • Energy efficiency,
  • Easy operation,
  • Wide choice of colours and fillings,
  • Low maintenance.

Drawbacks of exterior uPVC doors:

  • Less durable,
  • Not as sturdy,
  • Medium security level,
  • Lower sound insulation.

Exterior Wooden Doors

Exterior wooden doors are crafted using natural wood, which gives each door a unique texture and colour, as well as the cosy comfort that wood provides. However, wooden doors need regular maintenance to retain their good characteristics. Compared to uPVC doors, wooden doors have a higher price.

Benefits of exterior wooden doors:

  • Natural appearance and cosiness,
  • Durability,
  • Energy efficiency,
  • Nature-friendliness,
  • Many design options.

Drawbacks of exterior wooden doors:

  • High price,
  • Medium security level,
  • Regular maintenance needed.

Security Doors

Security doors are designed to prevent burglaries and protect your property. They are made using reinforced steel frame and expensive, high security level locks. However, security doors are heavy and not as comfortable as other exterior door types.

Benefits of security doors:

  • Security,
  • Durability,
  • Toughness,
  • Sound insulation,
  • Medium price.

Drawbacks of security doors:

  • Not as convenient – more locks included,
  • Lower heat insulation,
  • Fewer design options.
