Plastic side entrance door locks
The locking system is particularly important for side entrance doors. They are often slightly hidden so that thieves can work on them undisturbed. In general, a distinction is made between latches, hooks, or hook-bolt systems that secure the door leaf at one or more points. A system with multiple locking is recommended to reliably prevent the door from being pried open and to make access more difficult for burglars.
Plastic side entrance doors hinges
The door hinges ensure a side entrance door’s optimal and lasting functionality. This means it can be operated easily at any time, does not drag over the floor, and the door leaf’s weight is reliably supported. This minimizes signs of wear and increases the service life of the side entrance door. A distinction is made between roller hinges and screw-on door hinges, which can be two-part or three-part, depending on the weight and size of the door.
Plastic side entrance doors glazing
The glazing of the side entrance door is often much more generous than that of the main entrance. The reason for this is usually the location. Side entrance doors are aligned towards the property so that no additional privacy screen is required. In addition, full glazing allows for excellent design options that can transform a conventional room into an art studio. The natural daylight ensures a bright and friendly living atmosphere.
Sufficient thermal insulation should also be ensured for side entrances so that valuable energy is not lost unnoticed. Side entrance doors made of plastic are ideal because the material is a poor heat conductor. The multi-chamber system forms insulating air cushions that keep the heat in the house. In addition, you can use insulating glass and provide it with a warm edge.
Finally, about the plastic side entrance doors
With the proper maintenance, you can enjoy your plastic side entrance doors for a very long time.
