How to make the entrance front door: lining the front door


The front door serves as a barrier between the interior of a house or apartment and the outside environment. In addition, it undergoes heavy loads throughout its entire service life. Unsurprisingly, the finish wears out over time and doesn't look its best. Then the question arises of replacing the door. An alternative would be a decorative overlay, which is easy to install with your own hands.

What are linings, features of products from various materials

An overlay (door card) is called a one-piece decorative plate in the size of a canvas of various colors and designs. It is attached to the door, completely covers the leaf and serves as a facade, at the same time performing heat and sound insulation functions.

Modern materials allow you to choose a facade for any interior

In addition to design, linings are distinguished by the material of manufacture. The performance properties, service life and appearance of the product depend on it. The following materials are used:

  • wood;
  • plywood;
  • plastic;
  • MDF boards.

The abbreviation MDF stands for fine fraction.

Wood

Wooden overlays are the most popular, but also the most expensive type. The high price is associated with the cost of this natural material and the complexity of the manufacturing process. The array must be dried, treated with antiseptic and water-repellent impregnations, covered with a paint layer or decorative film.

Wood species strongly affects the performance properties of the finished product. The most affordable pine wood is impregnated with antiseptic compounds to a great depth, is resistant to temperature extremes, and is technologically advanced in its work.

Real exclusive things are created by hand carving from solid wood. And with the help of stain and varnish of various colors, the material is decorated with precious woods or artificially aged. In addition, wood is a natural, environmentally friendly material. This is one of the undoubted advantages.

Real works of art are created by hand

But there are also disadvantages. Conifers, despite their resinousness, do not tolerate high humidity, lack of hardness makes them vulnerable to mechanical damage. And even a high-quality varnish coating does not prevent sun fading.

Wooden cards are decorated with varnish, paint, veneer or lamination. Each of these coatings has its own characteristics. The varnish does not hide the natural texture of the wood, gives additional protection against moisture, but does not protect against fading. The paint also has moisture protection properties. Veneer and laminating film are less resistant to high humidity, they peel off rather quickly.

Plywood

The veneer sheets glued together have the advantages of wood, but are favorably distinguished by a lower price. The disadvantages include the fact that, under the influence of moisture, plywood exfoliates and the overlay quickly loses its aesthetic appeal and protective properties.

By design, plywood linings are indistinguishable from wooden ones, but inferior in terms of resistance to moisture

This material is suitable for enclosed spaces. With direct contact with the street, it will quickly become unusable; it is better not to install it on suburban buildings. Covered, like wood, with veneer, laminating film, paint or varnish.

MDF

Another derivative from wood is wood dust, mixed with a polymer composition and pressed under high pressure and temperature into boards. Possesses good density, hardness, moisture resistance.

To improve moisture resistance, the boards are covered with a polymer film or laminated. The problem is that the coating is too thin and care must be taken not to damage it. A small force is enough and scratches appear on the surface, violating the integrity of the film, which gives moisture access to the inside of the plate.

MDF overlays can imitate any material

A variety of patterns are applied by milling on MDF, and the top coat allows you to simulate almost any natural materials. With careful handling, the pad will last a long time, provided it does not come into direct contact with water.

Plastic

A budget option with a low price is plastic door trims. Plastic tolerates moisture well, can be installed in country houses, with access to the street. The advantage is the absence of a top coating, which often peels off on other linings. There is a coloring pigment, but it is added to the plastic itself, from which the cards are made.

There are also disadvantages: products made of cheap plastic fade under the sun and gradually deteriorate. Plastic pads with modifiers that give it stability are devoid of this drawback. Such products are more expensive, but they will last longer without losing their original properties.

Vandal-proof pads

The anti-vandal pads are worth mentioning separately. This is a decorative piece of hardware made of hard alloy metals that protects the lock from breaking and penetration of foreign objects - matches, chewing gum, paper.

Such an overlay can be installed directly on the lock, blocking the keyhole and protecting against intrusion. The part is reliable, because it is made of high-strength materials.

Anti-vandal pad on the lock will protect the door from intrusion

The design can be different: simple with a magnetic lock and more complex, when a secret mechanism is required to open the door. The latter are made together with the lock.

The optimal ratio of price and quality makes MDF cards more and more popular. Let's consider them in more detail.

Varieties of MDF overlays

The basis of the overlays is MDF board. In addition to the decorative function, it retains heat well, does not transmit sounds, and is resistant to temperature extremes. Plates are available in thicknesses from 2.5 to 16 mm. Products also differ in the material of the top coating: PVC film, plastic, veneer and paint.

MDF overlays are distinguished by a variety of colors and textures

Painted

The specific paint protects the panel from chemical attack and provides additional resistance to moisture and temperature extremes. Manufacturers recommend them for installation both indoors and on street doors.

But violation of the paint layer can lead to soaking of the base. Therefore, it is better to install such overlays outdoors under a canopy, where the door is protected from the direct effect of water.

Painted MDF overlays are the easiest and cheapest option

Veneered

Veneer pads are a more expensive and high quality option. Both natural veneer and eco-veneer are used - a modern substitute based on synthetic materials.

Natural has a wood structure, which is especially appreciated by adherents of eco-style. Due to its low resistance to moisture, it is used only indoors.

In terms of a variety of textures and colors, eco-veneer is inferior to other coatings, in terms of stability it is comparable to laminated surfaces. It has proven itself well when installed on street doors.

Veneered plates are suitable for installation on street doors

PVC film

Laminated panels are a traditional material for making doors. We can say that MDF onlays with a laminating layer are derived from it.

PVC film is resistant to moisture, temperature extremes and chemical attack. In terms of strength, it competes only with eco-veneer. Distinguish between indoor and outdoor coverage. The latter can be safely used for street doors.

PVC film can be of different colors

Laminated

A more modern type of lamination. The panel is covered with high-strength plastic, resistant to temperature fluctuations from -90 to +200 ° C and even arson. This material is not afraid of water, it is not afraid of blows and scratches, animal claws do not leave marks on it. Plastic cover is the most vandal-proof option.

The only drawback can be considered the impossibility of creating a pattern - such panels are not milled. This is successfully compensated by the sticker of moldings - decorative overlays.

Knowledge of the features of the base materials and the coating of the cards helps to determine the choice.

Selection rules

Before buying, you need to weigh the pros and cons, take into account the location of the door, the influence of weather factors, aesthetic properties and, of course, the price. A few hints to help:

  1. For outdoor doors, plywood or natural veneer covers are not suitable due to their low resistance to moisture. The best option is plastic.
  2. As an entrance, it is permissible to install a wooden door, but only painted or varnished. Over time, the coating will still have to be restored, but it is easier and cheaper than replacing it.

    For installation on street doors, a material that is resistant to changes in temperature and humidity is required

  3. For street doors, it is better to give preference to MDF panels with a plastic coating.
  4. Check the strength of the structure and hinges of the door, installing the cover will increase the load.
  5. Pay attention to the thickness of the card, professionals recommend 10 or 16 mm.
  6. Choose the color and design to match the interior of the room.
  7. Check that the installation does not damage the canvas and does not impair its performance.
  8. If additional sound and heat insulation is required, these characteristics of the panel material should be taken into account. Plastic in this case is not the best option.
  9. The standard dimensions of the overlays are 200x90 cm. For non-standard doors it will have to be ordered individually.
  10. Cards are internal and external, they differ in size and method of fastening screws.

After installing the overlays, the thickness of the canvas will increase, you may need to replace the handles and the lock, so take care of purchasing them in advance.

Preparing the canvas

Before you get started, prepare the tools and materials that you need:

  • drill with a drill for metal;
  • screwdriver;
  • a set of self-tapping screws;
  • glue;
  • clamps;
  • roulette.

After that, prepare the canvas itself:

  1. Remove all hardware from the door, including locks and seals.

    Before installing the linings, remove the hardware from the door

  2. It is better to remove the canvas from the hinges to facilitate installation. But you don't have to.

    After installing the grip cover, the handle may need to be replaced

  3. Clean the door from dust and dirt, repair damage and prime. This will help prevent damage to the web in the event of condensation.

If the canvas has been pasted over with a film, it is not necessary to remove it. The film will serve as additional protection.

After these simple manipulations, you can proceed with the installation of new facades.

Installing overlays step by step

If the strips will be installed on both sides of the door, start from the inside. This is done like this:

  1. Measure the canvas and the location of the handles and decorative strips.
  2. Transfer them to the card, cut out the mounting locations for the fittings. You can also do this after installation.
  3. Mark the attachment points, there should be 4 vertical rows of 5 in each.
  4. Drill through holes along the marks.
  5. Apply glue to the card, it is better to use "liquid nails".
  6. Place the overlay on the canvas and align.

    Install the trim and align

  7. Secure with clamps using a soft cloth to avoid damaging the surface.
  8. Screw wood screws on the front side according to the marks. Select the length of the fastener so that the self-tapping screws do not come out from the front side.

    The inner and outer linings differ in the method of fastening the self-tapping screws

Now the clamps can be removed and proceed to the installation of the outer cover. It has its own specifics, holes for fastening are drilled along the perimeter of the sheet, protruding beyond the edge of the canvas. The distance between the holes should be 20-25 cm.

The heavier the pad, the smaller the step between the fasteners should be.

Otherwise, the technology is no different from installing the inner lining: we glue the card, fix it with clamps, screw in the self-tapping screws. The cover will cover the attachment points of the inner card.

The door with strips should fit snugly against the frame

After that, we return the seal to its place, it will close the heads of the fastening of the outer lining and prevent air from entering through the holes. We install the lock, handles, peephole and rejoice at the updated door.

Feel the difference after installing the pads

Some manufacturers install special profiles around the perimeter of the canvas. To install the overlays on such doors, it is enough to push them into the groove and secure with a rail.

Reviews of overlays

Installing a new front door isn't cheap. Often this is not necessary if you are not satisfied with just the appearance. With the help of overlays, you can breathe new life into your battered door and give the entrance a presentable look without compromising security. And the installation of facades with your own hands will also allow you to significantly save money.

Most of the folding systems in stores are made of MDF or plastic. Plastic is lightweight and practical, but it lacks soundproofing properties, and the structure itself is noisy and gives the impression of laxity.


Accordion door in the opening and standard folding system

The assembled plastic structure is lightweight, so the technician does not need any outside help for installation. The plastic itself is easily cut, and modern movable panel joints allow you to cope with the assembly and installation of the structure in a few hours yourself. In addition, guide profiles in plastic structures are attached through clips that simplify the installation process.

Systems with MDF lamellas look solid, but they are more difficult to install. They look organically in an arched opening. Due to the weight of the structure, the guides are attached to the opening with self-tapping screws.

A standard folding kit includes the following items:

  • Narrow panels. In addition to several identical panels, from which the canvas is assembled, there are two half-panels that are installed along the edges, the starting and locking strips.
  • Guides. All kits have a top and two side rails. In systems for wide openings or with flexible lamellas, there is also a bottom guide.
  • Rollers, stoppers. In some designs, conventional hinges can be used to connect the sections.

Completions and trims for the box, locking mechanisms are not included in the package and must be purchased separately.


Thermal protection advantages

Thermal insulation of a wooden door provides a range of benefits that must be pursued. They consist in improving the indoor climate.

Such works make it possible to protect housing from extraneous noise. With their help, you can change the design of the structure. Performing these works will make the door more reliable.


Classification and types of platbands for interior doors

It is difficult to imagine a dwelling consisting of several rooms without doors. Even in a studio apartment, entrances to certain rooms, such as a bathroom or a storage room, are necessarily limited by doors. At the same time, you need to choose in a complex, paying attention to additional details, such as handles, locks and door cashing. The photos show their diversity and the widest choice, since they are distinguished by shape, color and material.

The platband hides irregularities and the junction of the box and the wall

Material is one of the main criteria that underlie the classification of platbands. For their manufacture, use:

  • wood
  • MDF
  • metal
  • plastic
  • ceramics.

Depending on the method of fastening, the platbands are external, which are mounted on the outer part of the box, internal or telescopic, more complicated in the installation process. According to the structure of the cavity in the middle, the platbands on the interior doors can be hollow, serving as cable channels, as well as monolithic or simple.

Helpful advice! For interior doors, it is better to select hollow platbands, which are used as cable channels. This functionality allows you to hide flaws that have arisen during installation, as well as hide the wires. In this case, the cable is carefully laid in special grooves and fixed to the wall.

As for the color, most often the platbands are matched to the door leaf. Particularly popular are wood-colored models, as well as white door trims. Platbands are also classified by shape. They can be flat, semicircular and curly or embossed. They are also distinguished by their sizes, which depend on the size of the canvas itself.

Most often, the color of the platband coincides with the shade of the door leaf.

Wooden door frames

Wood is the most popular material used in the manufacture of platbands. Its main advantages are environmental friendliness, reliability and long service life. In addition, this design looks very attractive and is suitable for various types of door leaf and style decoration of rooms.

Another big plus of wood is the ability to produce different configurations of casings. This feature lies in their intraspecific classification, according to which they are divided into:

  • even or rectangular - they are distinguished by simplicity of execution and at the same time an affordable price, therefore they are considered the most demanded
  • semicircular - have a rounded shape across the entire width. In this case, the radius is selected individually - from pronounced to barely noticeable
  • embossed or curly door trims, photos of which surprise with a special design. In their manufacture, wood of valuable species is used, which allows you to accurately convey the shape, however, this significantly affects the cost of the product.
  • carved - an elegant and expensive option. It looks pretty impressive. Therefore, with their help, you can radically change the interior of any room. At the same time, such cashing is not suitable for every style of room decoration.

Wooden platbands on the door

Plastic door trims and MDF casing

Platbands made of plastic belong to a practical material, as they are resistant to moisture and ultraviolet light, do not deform and do not require special maintenance. Any contamination can be easily wiped off with a wet sponge and a little detergent. Also, plastic casing can withstand temperature changes, which is important when choosing a material for a bathroom or kitchen.

PVC door frames are also characterized by color and texture variety, which greatly expands the possibilities of choosing the desired tone in accordance with the tone of the door leaf of furniture or walls. However, the main advantage of the material is its low price, which is justified by the same low strength of plastic products.

Cashing of interior doors from MDF is also considered a budget option. They completely imitate wood, but are much more affordable in terms of price. At the same time, the operational characteristics of such models are in no way inferior to wooden products, and in some characteristics, on the contrary, they have an indisputable advantage. MDF casings do not rot, which affects the long service life of products made from this material, and this factor has a positive effect on their service life.

Note! The main disadvantage of MDF is its tendency to swell under the influence of moisture, therefore it is not recommended to install cashing from this material in rooms with high humidity.

In shape, MDF cashing can be flat or rounded, which imitates wood as much as possible.

Platbands on interior doors made of metal

Metal door trims are best suited for exterior door trims. At the same time, they will be relevant in the frame of interior openings in rooms decorated in modern styles such as hi-tech, loft or minimalism. It is the cold shine of metal surfaces that brings the missing chic to the listed types of design. The material for cashing is most often stainless steel or aluminum.

As for practicality, stainless steel products are the most durable and also resistant to high humidity. They do not burn and are difficult to scratch. Aluminum is much softer, so you need to be as careful with it as possible. It is the metal platbands that should be installed on the metal door, especially since you can make them yourself.


Types, photos, prices of glass entrance doors for a private house and other objects

For the arrangement of the entrance group in cottages and country houses, swing-type structures made of metal or wood are most often used. Often in the photo of such objects you can see entrance doors with glass and forging. Such products are distinguished by high safety, excellent decorative properties, although their cost is quite high. For residential buildings, tinted or mirrored glass is predominantly used.

In public places, you can most often see swing metal doors with glass inserts.

Entrance doors with glass inserts are installed in the entrances of city houses. Most often, these structures are hinged, and the material for their manufacture is steel.

Public places with high traffic are equipped with sliding-type entrance groups. Such products must be transparent in order to provide a good overview. Front glass doors for shops, airports and train stations are equipped with an automatic opening system, so they do not line up. Since public buildings do not require thermal savings, a structure with a frame made of aluminum or steel can be installed at the entrance.

In specialized companies, as well as in gas stations and laboratories where there is a high risk of fire, special doors are installed. Glass in such structures is able to withstand the effects of high temperature and open fire for 30 minutes.

Helpful advice! If the owner's budget is not limited by strict limits, sliding-type glass street doors can be installed on the veranda of a country house. In this case, a standard design without an automatic opening system will suffice. Such a door will provide the space with a sufficient level of lighting, and in winter the veranda will not be covered with snow.

The most successful option for an entrance door is opaque structures with frosted glass, tinted, mirrored or stained glass

In municipal facilities, such as hospitals or schools, plastic doors with glass are usually installed. The choice of material is dictated solely by economic considerations. It will be very expensive to use wooden structures for these purposes, and products with aluminum frames do not retain heat well. These facilities include canteens where people take off their outerwear, and small shops whose owners do not have a large budget.

As for banks, restaurants and expensive boutiques, you can most often see swing doors with glass inserts made of metal or wood. All-glass entrance doors are often used; such designs are optimal for offices and business centers.

How the price of doors with glass is formed: plastic, metal and glass structures

The price of a door primarily depends on its purpose. A conventional single-glazed plastic construction installed on a balcony will cost almost as much as a non-glazed version. Its price will be about 7000 rubles. The size of such a product is 2.1x0.7 m. The purchase of an interior door with dimensions of 2x0.9 m, made of pine timber, will require about 3000 rubles. And the price of a plastic entrance door with glass of the same size will be at least 15,000-20,000 rubles.

The cost of the product is also influenced by other factors:



  • material of manufacture
  • brand and quality of fittings
  • technique used to decorate the canvas
  • overall structure design
  • the presence of an automatic drive and other additional systems and mechanisms.

The average price of sliding glass entrance doors measuring 2.2x1.5 m is 18,000 rubles. The cost of structures with automation installed in supermarkets and airports can reach 160 thousand rubles.

Note! The most budgetary models are offered by domestic manufacturers. The most expensive and high quality doors are made in Sweden.

Metal structures are elite class products. The cost of swing doors, decorated with forging, varies in the range of 70-100 thousand rubles. This indicator may be higher if the design of the product is author's.

The price of the door will depend on the main material used in the manufacture, as well as on the dimensions of the structure itself and the glass unit

Types of entrance doors with glass in the house and on other objects: classification by the type of opening

According to the type of opening, entrance doors are divided into several types. Swing-type constructions are considered a traditional option. They represent a door leaf suspended from one side of the frame by the hinges. This type of product is widespread in Europe.

A distinctive feature of sliding-type structures is the absence of a frame. The door leaf moves along the guides. The product is suspended using a ball bearing group of parts and a rocker mechanism.

In pendulum-type structures, the door leaf makes rotational movements around a vertically located axis, and the sash can move in different directions. The configuration of the pendulum loops is very complex. It combines the capabilities of a suspension mechanism and a door closer that returns the canvas to its original position. The sash can be opened in both directions, depending on the direction in which the person is moving.


Revolving doors have one or more leaves. They rotate around an axis set in the very center of the opening. In the private residential sector, such products are not used. They can be found in supermarkets, hotel complexes, at checkpoints, etc.

There is another type of design - accordion doors or book doors. The doors of these products are compactly folded and fit into the opening. The canvas consists of several parts, which are connected together using hinged loops.

The list of door designs does not end there. The types of products listed above are basic. By adding small changes in the device to them, you can get new types of doors, for example, sliding, sliding, revolving, etc.

Characteristics of aluminum profile entrance glass doors

Glass inserts with an aluminum frame are ideally combined with the modern style. These materials are insensitive to various factors of the weather, UV radiation and fire. They are not capable of causing harm to humans and animals, and do not need special care.

A metal front door with a double-glazed window is a much more interesting option for a country house than an ordinary blind door

In country houses, aluminum doors are rarely installed. Their main field of application extends to shops, offices, public institutions. The price of such structures is relatively high, but the costs are more than paid off due to the long service life.

Important! When choosing aluminum glass entrance doors, be sure to pay attention to the quality of the profile. Unlike window elements, the thickness of which does not exceed 5 cm, multi-chamber profiles are used in the door frame. The thickness of high-quality parts should be at least 7 cm. The number of chambers varies from 5 to 7 pcs.

When choosing an aluminum door for a house, you should pay attention not only to the width of the product, but also to the thickness of its walls. This indicator directly affects the quality of sound insulation, as well as the level of heat resistance. The coloring of the profile elements is carried out at the production stage, therefore, the presence of streaks and other defects in high-quality products is not allowed.

Aluminum profile glass doors perfectly withstand any loads without losing their original functional qualities

Features of entrance doors with glass: PVC, metal and wooden structures

Double-glazed windows can be installed as transparent inserts in the structure of entrance doors. For these purposes, one-chamber and two-chamber products are used. The thickness of the former is 24 mm, and the latter is 32 mm.

Installation of a glass unit is carried out in several ways. The first option involves installing the product in a groove specially designed for this purpose. Most often, such elements are present in PVC doors with glass, as well as in structures with a metal or wooden frame. During the installation process, a rubber seal must be used.

In the second case, the double-glazed window is an additional element and is fixed by the "overlay" method. Mostly this approach is used when it is necessary to organize a viewing window. If necessary, it can be closed using a special cover. Glazing beads are used as retainers, which are installed on the inner surface of the door leaf.

A big advantage of entrance doors equipped with a glass unit is the ability to freely view the external space.

The main advantage of such entrance doors is the ability to organize a free view of the surrounding space. For the production of a glass unit, tempered glass is used, which has a high margin of safety. The probability of damage is minimal. Even if this happens, the replacement process is straightforward.

Dismantling of the product is carried out in several stages:

  1. The decorative overlay is disassembled.
  2. The beads on the door leaf are detached.
  3. The damaged glass unit is removed, and a new one is placed in its place.

The category of doors equipped with a double-glazed window includes products with frost-resistant properties. Such structures are filled with argon, which allows the dew point to be reduced to -50 ° C. Often, these doors are equipped with energy-saving glass and covered with a film that has anti-shock properties. Thanks to this, the structure does not freeze even in the most severe winters. Before purchasing frost-resistant double-glazed windows, experts recommend that you carefully study the technical characteristics of the product in the store.

Wooden structures are the most popular option for a street door.

Important! When buying a structure, be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the glass. The degree of thermal and sound insulation will depend on this indicator.

What is the difference between plastic doors with glass and PVC structures

Glazed plastic doors are of several types. These products are classified according to the type of construction and the location of its installation.

Balcony doors made of plastic are considered the lightest. They are equipped with the same profiles as PVC windows. Most often, such products have 2-3 air chambers. Stiffeners are installed inside them, which increase the strength of the structure. Sometimes the manufacturer reinforces the product by adding an aluminum insert to it. Balcony doors are not suitable for installing heavy fittings, push handles and massive locking mechanisms.

Designs of plastic entrance glass doors have more solid dimensions. The profiles installed in them are equipped with at least 5 air chambers. They necessarily have internal reinforcement, thanks to which the owner can install almost any handle or lock he likes. Such doors are less vulnerable to mechanical stress, such as impacts.

The most inexpensive option is a standard plastic swing door.

The front door leaf is arranged in the same way as that of the balcony structure. Half of its area is occupied by glass, and the other is made in the form of a sandwich panel. There are models completely made of glass, which are enclosed in a metal frame covered with plastic.

PVC doors with glass are most often used as interior structures. The main part of the canvas is made of pine timber or MDF, after which it is covered with a colored PVC film. Most often, such products are represented by paneled structures with a reinforced bottom. It is in this area that the kicks fall, therefore, the glass is not installed in this area.

As a rule, glazing of interior doors takes about 2/3 of the door leaf. The material can be solid or honeycomb.

Glass entrance doors solid material

Tempered glass is used for the production of such structures. Its thickness is in the range of 8-12 mm. This material is also called display glass.

Glass can serve as a decorative element, an observation deck or the main material for the manufacture of a door leaf.

Solid glass structures are of several types:

  • sliding entrance glass doors for a private house
  • swing structures
  • swing doors
  • carousel-type constructions.

In addition, glass entrance doors are divided into single-leaf and double-leaf. They are durable, unpretentious in terms of maintenance and look very stylish.

Note! Doors made of showcase glass do not have a threshold. Because of this, cold air can freely enter the premises.

Sliding structures are the most demanded option for glass doors. These products have a special structure. In them, the door frame is completely absent, and the sash (one or more) is suspended above the opening using a guide profile and rollers. Opening is carried out by pushing the canvases to the sides. In some modifications, the door leaf is hidden in a pencil case or a special niche in the wall.

Single-chamber and double-glazed windows can be installed as inserts into the entrance door

The high demand for sliding structures is due to their compact size, as well as an increased level of burglary resistance, since the most vulnerable part of the door (suspension) is closed by a wall. On sale there are models equipped with an electric drive. Such doors can turn a house into an impregnable fortress.

When choosing entrance glass doors to a house, several factors must be taken into account:

  1. Door leaf material - since the structure is installed at the entrance, the most stringent requirements are imposed on the sash. The glass from which the door is made must be tempered, shockproof and have very high strength characteristics.
  2. The quality of the fittings - it is desirable that the door be fitted with accessories from well-known and reliable manufacturers, since the service life of the entire structure will depend on this.
  3. External aesthetics - the owner chooses the door design to his taste, but at the same time it is very important to take into account the exterior of the building so as not to disturb the appearance of the front of the house.

Dimensions and glass area directly depend on the structure and design of the door leaf

Features of metal doors with glass and forging

The cost of metal entrance doors with glass inserts and decorative forging elements is the highest. Most often, such designs are made to order in a single copy. They are custom-made, so they can be considered a luxury item.

Of no small importance when buying a forged door with glass is the thickness of the steel sheet from which the sash is made. Do not go to extremes, since too much metal thickness will affect the total weight of the canvas. As a result, the hinges will be subjected to increased loads and will fail prematurely. The optimum metal thickness is 1.5-2 mm.

Two types of forging are used in the production of metal doors. The creation of decorative parts in a hot way involves heating the material to 700-850 ° C. Cold metal processing can be carried out at room temperature.

To ensure increased security, a welded or forged grille can be installed on the entrance doors with glass

Note! Cold forged metal parts are malleable. They are much better at resisting rust than hot-worked elements.

Since the metal retains heat worse, the door leaf will have to be additionally insulated. For this, special materials are used that not only prevent the structure from freezing, but also perfectly absorb sounds from the street. It is desirable that the insulator be heat resistant.

To insulate the door leaf, it is best to use:

  • basalt fiber slabs
  • mineral wool
  • polyurethane foam filler.

The cost of entrance doors with glass inserts and decorative forging is very high

With the help of these materials, the internal cavities in the door leaf are closed. To increase the reliability of a metal door, it is advisable to install a cylinder locking mechanism or a lever-type lock used for safes. If such devices are combined with an armored plate, it is almost impossible to break them.

The modern choice of door designs is simply huge. In stores, you can find stylish, practical, convenient and reliable products with various characteristics, for example, frost resistance, fire resistance, increased strength or sound insulation. If you want to get something original and unique, the buyer can purchase a product made according to an individually designed project.

The best luxury entrance doors

To protect a trendy suburban cottage, an elite front door is required. Buyers make stringent requirements to it, not only in terms of reliability and burglary resistance, but also in appearance. In this segment, there is fierce competition between domestic and foreign brands. Here are the best ones.

Torex

Torex entrance doors are made in accordance with the most advanced developments. The team of the enterprise has accumulated many years of experience, having launched production back in 1989. Today the company can boast of a wide distribution network in the CIS. Production facilities are currently fully loaded, and the annual production of doors has reached 10 thousand units. The manufacturer does not stop there, new developments appear on the market with enviable consistency. The experts gave the laurels of the rating winner to the entrance doors of Torex.

It is possible to ensure maximum strength and reliability of products due to the use of two steel sheets. The role of the base is played by a one-piece bent profile with a thickness of 2 mm. Designers from Italy are often involved in the design of doors.

Dignity

Disadvantages

Elbor

Elbor entrance doors have earned a lot of flattering words from consumers. The plant boasts a glorious history, the company was founded back in 1976. Working for the defense industry, the team is accustomed to strict discipline and special requirements for product quality. Therefore, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, people's knowledge and skills quickly found application. According to experts, Elbor entrance doors are the standard of reliability. Immunity to hacking allowed the brand to take the second line in our ranking.

The company's products look great in other aspects as well. The doors are assembled very high quality, they have an attractive design. Only in the assortment there are no models available for widespread use.

Dignity

  • maximum protection against burglary
  • good noise and heat insulation
  • stylish appearance.

Disadvantages

Dierre

The Italian door manufacturer Dierre needs no special introduction. The products of this company are known in different countries of the world, as evidenced by the annual sales of 200 thousand items. Production facilities have been created in Russia to provide the domestic market with products bearing the Dierre trademark. The company independently develops new designs, introducing the latest advances in the field of locking. So, "smart" entrance doors are equipped with a remote control system, a chip with 128-bit encryption plays the role of a key.

Solid design is considered a feature of Italians. Unique fittings are made for the chosen style. Experts also note the high manufacturability of production, which allows the products to remain in the leading three of the rating.

Dignity

Disadvantages

Fortus

Fortus door blocks stand out from the competition by their design. They resemble the famous Lego toy, allowing the buyer to assemble a suitable model on their own. There is a choice of door type (single or double leaf, combined), fittings, locking mechanism. The consumer determines the number of locks, the degree of secrecy, the color of the canvas, the shape of the handles, the method of finishing. With Fortus' extensive catalog, the total number of variants reaches four digits.

The manufacturer meets its customers halfway by making entrance doors of non-standard sizes in accordance with the proposed project. When creating door blocks, only high-quality materials are used, as well as reliable locks from Cisa, Esety, Mul-T-Lock and Mottura.

Dignity

Disadvantages

Legrand

The original quality of the finish of the Legrand entrance doors was to the taste of domestic consumers. It is this fact that contributed to the inclusion of this brand in our rating. As a finishing material, the manufacturer used MDF panels, which are processed on modern CNC machines. To increase the service life, a polymer coating is used that protects the canvas from weathering. A wide range of colors brings variety to the lineup.

Some collections are finished with natural wood, which gives the doors aristocracy and exclusivity. Buyers are provided with a wide choice, from basic equipment to modified equipment. The door hinges are equipped with bearings for easy movement.

Dignity

Disadvantages

Bastion

One of the flagships in the production of entrance doors is the Bastion brand. Since the founding of the company (1997), the team has focused on the manufacture of door blocks available for domestic consumers. Products are made according to the standard scheme, first a frame is formed from a square metal profile. Then steel sheets are welded to it. The void is filled with basalt wool, which, in addition to good insulating properties, is fire resistant.

When choosing a model, the buyer is given the opportunity to independently determine the type of anti-burglar system and anti-detachable hinges. Finishing can also be changed according to client's requests. Glass or wooden elements, as well as forged inserts are capable of decorating the door.

Dignity

Disadvantages

Guardian

The Russian manufacturer Guardian has been operating on the domestic market since 1994. Many users call the products of this brand the most beautiful. The experts took into account the opinion of consumers by including Guardian doors in our rating. The aesthetics of door blocks often plays a decisive role when choosing a buyer. Product reliability is not satisfactory either. High quality doors and fire safety are confirmed by numerous domestic and international certificates.

The assortment of the company includes versatile doors. The catalog contains models for both wealthy people and budget-conscious homeowners. Users are criticized about the speed of the service. Even minor problems are eliminated for a very long time, which causes a lot of inconvenience.
