A steel door that looks like timber

An architectural or commercial style building often requires a more traditional aesthetically pleasing door, whilst not compromising on security or fire rating.

Wood-grain effect steel doors have become very popular in recent years, due to their attractive appearance. The style of paint is applied much in the same way as other traditional looking paints using a powder coated finish, and provides the same durability as other steel painted doors.

What’s more this paint effect is also applied to any vision panels, louvres side and over panels, ensuring a quality finish.

Why a steel door?

Unlike wooden doors, steel doors are much more endurant, with no shrinkage, cracking, or warping. Additionally, the wood-grain paint finish does not peel, bubble or delaminate. Wooden doors require considerable maintenance to ensure their life expectancy, such as regular application of a paint or veneer finish. Steel Doors do not require any maintenance and will last more than 15 years in most circumstances.
