Door style guide

31st January 2023

When it comes to choosing a door for a project, there are many factors to consider. The style of the door, the materials it is made from, and its function are all important considerations. In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of doors available and help you choose the right one for your needs. There are several different styles of doors, each with their own unique characteristics and uses. Some common types include:

UPVC Doors

French doors

This type of door features large glass panes and is often used as a way to connect indoor and outdoor spaces. It is perfect for adding a continental element to a building and is popular for its aesthetic appeal.


Bi-fold doors provide excellent thermal insulation, security, and aesthetic appeal.  They fold together, taking up minimal space when opened. This makes them a great option for buildings with limited space or for connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.

Stable doors

Stable doors allow for easy ventilation, which can help keep the building cool during hot weather. The top half of the door can be opened to allow fresh air in, while the bottom half can remain closed to keep bugs and pests out.


UPVC patio doors are relatively inexpensive compared to other types of patio doors. They are easy to open and close, making them a great option for patio openings.

Composite Doors

Composite doors are made from a combination of materials, making them very strong and durable. They are resistant to warping, cracking, and fading, which means they will last for many years with minimal maintenance. Composite doors are good insulators, which helps to keep the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Composite doors are easy to clean and maintain, requiring only the occasional wipe down with a damp cloth. They do not require painting or staining like wood doors.

Aluminium Doors

Sliding doors

These doors move horizontally along a track, rather than swinging open. They are often used in spaces where a hinged door would take up too much room, such as in kitchens or as patio doors.

Bi-folding doors

These doors are made up of multiple panels that fold together. They are often used as room dividers or as a way to connect indoor and outdoor spaces.

Ultimately, the type of door chosen will depend on a customer’s specific needs and preferences. Each style of door has its own unique benefits and features that can be tailored to specific requirements.
