Steel Doors Vs. Steel Style Doors

Steel doors are increasingly becoming one of the most popular installations for homeowners in Slough, Watford, Greater London and throughout the South East. Their style reflects a well-known brand which features square or rectangular pieces of glazing separated by thin pieces of steel in a grid form.

They are often associated with significant buildings such as factories and shops. However, recently, steel doors have become very popular for homeowners. They have both internal and external applications and are perfect for both modern and traditional structures.

Despite being a style that has been around for over 100 years, their classic style effortlessly becomes something that is eye catching in the modern home. However, steel is fast becoming an outdated material to use for double glazing. This is because it lacks proper thermal performance, security and is incredibly high maintenance.
