Studies have consistently shown that iron doors offer enhanced strength and durability compared to other door materials. The use of high-quality iron or steel in their construction provides a formidable barrier against forced entry and physical attacks.

Yes, iron doors are suitable for commercial properties as well. Because of their  excellent  aesthetic appeal and durability is making them a popular choice for businesses such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, and office buildings. Our customers are not only home owners but also businesses owners .

To measure the size of your door correctly, please follow these guidelines. Our sizes are measured from the outside of the jamb to the outside of the door frame. For example, a door listed as 1830 mm x 2440 mm on our website means that 1830 mm is the width from the outside to the outside of the door frame (not the actual width size of the door), and 2440 mm  is the height from the outside top frame to the bottom of our built-in steel threshold (sill)  (not the actual height of the door).

To measure the width of your door, start by measuring from the outside of the property, wall to wall  because the existing door and it’s complete frame will be removed when replacing it with the new door .

For the height, measure from the top of the door frame to the bottom of the door sill.

Please note that the measurements provided on our website are based on the outside dimensions of the frame and the height to the bottom of the threshold.

For new construction:

Measure your door’s width and height then add 15 – 20 mm  to the width and add 10 – 20mm to the height, this will give you the correct rough openings. The reason for the extra space is to allow room to level the door frame.
