Doors & Windows Overview


                 A door is a moving mechanism used to block off and allow access to, an entrance to or within an enclosed space, such as a building, room or vehicle. Doors normally consist of one or two solid panels, with or without windows, that swing using hinges horizontally. These hinges are attached to the door's edge but there are also doors that slide, fold or spin. The main purpose of a door is to control physical access.


                 A window is an opening in a wall, door, roof or vehicle that allows the passage of light, sound, and air. Modern windows are usually glazedor covered in some other transparent or translucent material, a sash set in a frame[1] in the opening; the sash and frame are also referred to as a window.[2] Many glazed windows may be opened, to allow ventilation, or closed, to exclude inclement weather. Windows often have a latch or similar mechanism to lock the window shut or to hold it open by various amounts.

Criteria For Doors

Hinged Door:

When you think of a door, the basic hinged door is almost certainly the type that comes to mind. Find out how they work, what options are available and where they are and aren't suitable.

Bi-fold Door:

By offering a small concertina-like effect, bi-fold doors allow both excellent, careful use of available space, and the means with which to create a large entry into a space.

French Door:

Popular for their ability to 'open up' a space and create a big entry or exit, french doors vary significantly both in their size, and in the materials they're constructed from.

Dutch Door:

Dutch doors are a convenient solution in a number of different scenarios - for controlling pets or small children, for instance, or for providing a serving area in a kitchen.

Stacker Door:

Stacker doors allow massive openings in homes, letting you effectively open up an entire wall onto either a different part of the house, or onto a yard area.

Sliding Door:

Sliding doors make excellent use of space, and allow significantly larger entryways than conventional hinged doors. 'Pocketed' sliding doors even allow you to conceal doors inside wall cavities.

Security Screen Door:

Security screen doors offer both a way to add an extra layer of security to the front door of your house, and to provide extra ventilation and sunlight when it's needed.

Louvered Doors:

These Permit Free Ventilation through them and at the same time maintain privacy of the room.
