Door Front

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 215

Door fronts are a very important part of the installation and design process for the improvement and security of the front of your house. The door front is the panels and infill that are to one side or both sides of the front door and will be made of UPVC with possible glass infill in order to give additional light to the hallway.

Panels

When fitting a new door front, if your panels to the side or sides of the door it may well be opportune to replace these. They will probably be wooden, and as wood does deteriorate over time, replacing them will not only keep down the maintenance required, but will also add to the overall appearance of your home. A complete replacement of the door front and the panels will give a fresh look and will make sure that the security of your house will also be increased.

The panels to the side of the house will be white, or may be coated so as to make them look as if they are wood, and will be of high quality. The upper panels can be of glass which can be coloured, stained or patterned and will be of safety glass. This glass will also be strengthened so as to ensure that it does not offer easy entry to those who wish to break in.

The panels will be securely fitted to the wall of the property and will also be sealed with a polystyrene filler or similar so that there can be no gaps for wind to enter.

The door will be fitted to these panels with fail-safe hinges so that the door cannot be removed by anybody seeking forced entry. The whole effect is to give a wider appearance to the front of your house and this will clearly be aesthetically appealing.

Design

The design of the door front panels is your choice and most Web sites will have a CAD system that will allow you to see the effects of the door front panels that you choose. The new door you have chosen will also be part of the design you will see so that the total effect will be seen. As stated earlier you can incorporate glass into these panels and if coloured this will allow for some of the blandness of a totally white panel to be negated.

A Door Front is an important part of your house or apartment and it is essential that it offers security as well as improving the look of your property. Give thought to what you want, ensure you can visualize the door front and then enjoy the new maintenance free look to the front of your house.
