Can you tell the door is made from steel?
Quite simply, no. Unless you hit the door with force, you cannot tell it is made from steel.
A misconception is that steel doors are only for industrial use, but once powder coated and fitted with our highest quality ironmongery, you cannot distinguish the difference between our door and a traditional uPVC or composite door.
How do I choose the hinge side and opening? (Handing)
Hinge side and opening is determined viewed from outside.
Example 1: LH hinge open out: hinges are on the LH side, handle is on the right and you pull the door towards you.
Example 2: RH hinge open in: hinges are on the RH side, handle is on the left and you push the door away from you.

What are the door sizes? What is the clear opening?
The sizes listed are external frame sizes.
We offer side panels and over panels if you need to add to the width or height of the door. We also offer a cut down service to reduce the height of the door.
To calculate the clear opening (when the door is open), subtract 135mm from the width dimension. E.G. 895mm-135mm=760mm clear opening

What is Security Trim?
The security trim kit fits around the perimeter of the door frame. It works very much like architrave.
It hides un-level or large gaps, hides the position of fixings eliminating the risk of tampering from intruders and crucially protects the fixings from attack.
For residential applications, you may choose to use pvc trim or alternative architrave to finish the installation.
