FRONT ENTRANCE DOORS
DESIGNED FOR NEW BUILD PROPERTIES
The Scotts New Build Range is highest performing and certified to enable its selection in a new build property where the highest levels of thermal performance and security are mandatory.
HOW IT WORKS
Front Entrance Doors are the main entrance to the house on the front of the property. They are usually larger and grander and often a different colour to other doors and
windows in the house to create a statement.
Front doors will almost always open inwardly. They are also fitted with a high security multipoint locking system but operate differently from the Scotts single external doors
or French doors.
When the front door is pushed or pulled shut it will be held shut by the latch only (multipoint locking not engaged). Access will be only available from outside with a key to operate the latch and internally the latch can simply be operated by a thumb turn to open the door.
For full secure locking from either side; the key is to be used externally or the thumb turn internally (270 degree turning) and this will engage the full multipoint locking mechanism. This lock has the added feature of a ‘day latch’; when activated the ‘day latch’ allows the front door to be pushed open and shut from either side without engaging the latch , for example if you are in and out with shopping etc.
