If accessibility is a priority when choosing your new front door, we have several options to suit.
Firstly, all of our composite doors from the Composite Door Shop
or Composite Timber Doors
are available with a low aluminium threshold. This threshold allows for easy access without a uPVC frame to step over, as with standard uPVC doors. This low threshold allows wheelchairs or buggies access with ease, as well as minimising the risk of accidents. This is especially useful where there are young children who run around without always watching their step, or those who have reduced mobility.
Secondly, our Composite Timber Doors are available as double doors (more commonly known as French doors
). Combined with the low aluminium threshold (available on inward-opening double doors only), double doors allow access for larger electronic wheelchairs without compromising on the appearance or security of the property. Double doors are available in any of our front door styles, so you can combine your style tastes with your accessibility needs. Again, this is also useful for those who struggle with large buggies or business properties with large items. If you don’t need a full double entrance, we can also provide doors and a half. These feature a normal sized door and a half sized door that open as French doors. Ideal for those who need the extra entrance room but do not have much space, most properties can be adapted to allow an extra half door.
