Choosing a new front door for your property is a big decision. Not only is it very important to your home’s aesthetic, but also for security and warmth. There are three main considerations when picking the perfect external front door: appearance; performance – in terms of home security, keeping in the heat, weather resistance and ease of maintenance – and budget. Although the last point is important, a high-performing door can save on heating bills and maintenance if you choose a quality product.
Impact doors are designed to resist heavy blows and stay intact even when they are struck by heavy objects. This means they provide maximum safety and security against both natural disasters and intruders. Many criminals break in by forcing open a door, or by breaking the decorative glass to reach in and use the inside handle. Impact doors ensure that these methods remain ineffective and that your home stays safe.
In Florida, the law states that insurance companies must offer discounts and incentives to homeowners that install windstorm mitigation equipment. This means that, should you purchase any of our fixtures, you will be entitled to discounts on your insurance!
If you live somewhere where hurricanes and intruders are a non-issue, then save on costs with non-impact doors. They are not designed to withstand heavy impact but still provide many in-demand features – from energy efficiency to heavy-duty construction

Types of Doors

These doors open horizontally, sliding across a track. We usually fit these at the entrance to a garden or patio area. If you’re looking to create a bright, open feel in your home, look no further.
