front entrance doors
DESIGNED FOR REFURBISHMENT PROJECTS
Front entrance doors, specifically for refurbishment projects, are designed to create a grand entrance while maintaining the aesthetics of your home.
The Refurbishment Range is the first choice for a replacement doors and window project where the emphasis is strongly on the subtleties of aesthetic appearance. Security, however, remains a priority.
HOW IT WORKS
Front entrance doors are the main entry point in 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 entrance 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 entrance 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 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.
