Thermal Efficiency

Your external doors, just like your windows, need to stand up to weather, condensation and draughts. It's important that external doors are energy efficient to keep the heat in and the cold out.

Double glazing ensures adequate insulation, and we'll specify if they are part L compliant (helping you meet the building regulation on the conservation of fuel and power in buildings). You'll also find our low u-values listed on the detail page of each door where applicable.



The security of your home is a key consideration when it comes to external doors. That's why we provide sturdy wooden doors to keep you secure. Install with safety hinges, a multi-point locking system or a mortice dead lock for top door security. You can also fit a door chain to exterior wooden doors more easily than upvc doors.

In addition, all our glazing uses toughened glass. This safety glass not only offers enhanced security but helps keep your home the warmest it can be by providing thermal insulation.

If you're looking for something to improve the view out to your patio or garden, don't forget to take a look at our selections of French doors and bifold doors.
