Genuine craftmanship Sustainable materials Weather proof design

Inward opening front doors

Inward opening front doors are built with the same care and design as our outward opening front doors but constructed slightly differently. The difference is that the door leaf, frame and threshold are built to withstand both rainwater and wind as the door is opened inward.

Designed with care

If an outward opening door is simply reversed, water can be pressed in with strong winds, and flow down at the inside of the threshold. This is why the the inward opened door leaf, frame and threshold are built to resist rainwater and wind. In extreme weather conditions, water can be pushed in and flow down along the frame or door leaf. The water has to go down and out through the threshold so no water gets inside. An inward opening door is never completely sealed at the threshold. If water gets in between the frame and door leaf, it has to flow out, on the outside.

An external door is like decoration for the house

An exterior wooden door is as much a beautiful detail as it is a secure protection. The choice of external door enhances the appearance of the house, and keeps the world and weather out. Our sandwish constructed, insulated external doors are built one by one, or in very small batches. The material we use is always certified, solid wood. Everything from the frame to panel work is done by hand by one carpenter, who is responsible for the entire process of building our doors. As all parts are made by hand, everything from dimensions to material, can be tailored made to your  specifications.
