Different Styles of Triple Glazing Doors

A very popular trend in home renovation, is to replace light-blocking exterior walls with glass-pane doors. We have looked at the options available for triple glazing windows now, let’s look at the different styles of triple glazing doors available.

Standard entrance door


These come in a variety of styles, from cottage pane and full glass to solid doors with a top light and letter box. These are suitable for any door leading outside. The unit is sufficiently sealed to prevent significant heat loss.
Many manufacturers also have the option to have decorative glass in your door.

French doors

French-style doors are a great way to add light to a space or to have a wider opening leading to a patio or wooden deck. Similar to entrance doors, they are available in a wide variety of designs to suit your home’s style.

Where triple glazing windows are available in a few material options, triple glazing doors are only manufactured in uPVC frames. The size and weight of the units become too much to comfortably operate, so the frame has to be as light-weight as possible.

uPVC or unplasticized polyvinyl chloride is an incredibly light-weight and durable material that requires little to no maintenance to preserve its appearance. It is a moldable, stable material that resists warping, rotting and fading. It is precisely these properties that make it a very popular choice as a building material.

Another inherent property of uPVC is that because it is molded, the colour of the product goes straight through. This means that when a scratch or dent damages the surface, it is not so visible because there is no colour variation.
The molding process further enables the product to emulate textures, making uPVC windows ideal for conservancy projects where existing windows and door frames have to be replicated. Realistic wood-grain frames can be made to match traditional wooden frames, especially for older homes.

Where triple glazing in itself already has an A++ energy rating making it environmentally friendly, uPVC frames are also completely recyclable at the end of their very long lifetime, making it a great green choice.

Installing triple glazing in windows alone may not be sufficient in ensuring your home has optimal thermal insulation, especially when you have large doors leading outside. The vast variety of uPVC triple glazing doors offer a great alternative to low efficiency doors, without having to compromise aesthetics.
