Timber front doors and timber single exterior doors

Our timber front doors and timber single doors are individually made with the closest attention to detail to ensure that the appearance of the original doors is preserved, or are custom made to your chosen design.

We also carry out associated works, including timber porches.

Traditional craftsmanship is combined with the latest technology and finishes, including double-glazing to “A” rated specifications where required and an advanced microporous paint system, to provide maximum insulation and durability.

Our high quality timber doors are carefully installed, and the surrounding walls are decorated to provide you with a fully completed installation.

 

Timber

At SPS Timber Windows we not only create beautiful timber doors but ensure that their performance is optimised through the use of the highest quality timber available.

Weather sealing

Opening sections of the frame are fitted with Aquamac weather seals, a premium quality product which provides consistently high standards of energy efficiency.

 

Glass and glazing

If your doors are to be glazed, they are double-glazed to “A” rated specifications, exceeding the latest building regulation requirements.

Our sealed 22 mm double-glazed units, comprising of low “E” glass, argon filled “Swisspacer” bar and Pilkington Optiwhite™ extra clear, low iron glass provide an indicative centre pane U-value of 1.2 W/m2K.

We offer a wide variety of glass types to suit specific requirements, including:

  • Toughened glass
  • Laminated glass
  • Acoustic glass
    Double-glazed units can incorporate SGG STADIP SILENCE® acoustic insulating 6.8mm laminated glass (35db Rw) to provide additional sound insulation and security. The incorporation of a totally transparent interlayer absorbs sound and reduces the level transmitted through the glass, helping to keep noise in or out.
  • Obscured glass, textured glass, patterned glass, etched glass
  • Leaded glass
  • Stained glass

 

Our drained and vented glazing rebates allow any moisture to escape through small, concealed drainage holes, which helps to maximise the life of our double-glazed units.

 

Finishing

We use the most comprehensive treatment and finishes for our timber doors to ensure their longevity and minimise maintenance.

Advanced microporous treatment and paint systems combine superior standards of extensibility, adhesion and colour retention, enabling maintenance periods to be extended and redecoration to require only one coat application.

Our timber doors are primed with two spray-applied coats of white primer undercoat and mid-coat and are finished with a spray-applied top coat in a white semi-gloss finish to provide the ultimate in durability and weather resistance.

Once installed, our decorators brush apply a further finish top coat to the doors and frames, as required, at which point the surrounding walls are also made good and decorated internally to fully complete the installation.

Specified paint colours can be colour matched.

We also offer the option of dual colour.

Front doors

As standard, each front door is fitted with a high quality letter plate with inner tidy, and with an insurance-approved high security night latch and five lever mortice deadlock.

Additional front door furniture, such as door knocker, spy hole, central door knob and security chain can be selected from our range, or can be specified as required, for which we would quote accordingly.
