Customers along with architects are constantly pushing the limits. They want front and garage doors to match the façade or overall design concept as much as possible. Special colours and custom glazing are not enough. So, we started to look for new innovative design solutions.
Contemporary house designs are based on glass, concrete, corten, steel, and timber. As a result, architects are asking for doors made of look-alike materials.
As you know, modern high-performance doors have specific requirements like high thermal insulation, long service life, low maintenance, etc. Using original façade materials do not comply with these requirements.
Luckily, cladding materials manufacturers are following trends as well. But there is one problem that always persists – how to bond the cladding panel with the door aluminium outside skin. Firstly, we can’t use any screws, rivets, or any fixings to keep the door appearance nice and tidy. Secondly, we can’t use strong glue due to mismatching thermal expansion coefficients for different materials.
Looks like a trifle but it can cause big problems. Two firmly bonded panels with different thermal expansion coefficients will fall apart or damage each other as the ambient temperature changes. Finally, we developed specific adhesion technology to keep different materials together without affecting each other.
Front Door Design Options
Hence now we can offer contemporary design front doors with quality guaranteed. Even more, we can combine different cladding materials on the same door panel. Tempered glass gives almost 100% gloss. The back of the glass is painted with ceramic paint and heated to merge with the glass. Undoubtedly the most popular is black but we can paint it in almost any RAL colour as well. Moreover, we can mill and inlay with stainless metal appliques concrete or corten image panels. As a result, customers can get a unique front door matching overall house design without compromising performance and service life.
Installing the door with an inlay handle is like a putting cherry on the top of the cake. Replaceable LED backlight with photo-sensors will show you ‘the direct way home’ during twilight.
