Homeowners of such properties should not shy away, however, from purchasing new doors with glazed inserts. With an additional pane of suitable security glazing, for example, or ornamental glass, both reliable door break-in protection and privacy can be guaranteed, even for full glass hardwood front doors.
To make glazed timber external doors more secure, a made-to-measure laminated safety, toughened safety or P4A pane can be selected in our comprehensive product configurator as an addition to your glazed panel or inserts. A toughened safety pane, for example, is manufactured with injury reduction in mind, ensuring that, in the event of a break-in due to high force, the panel is less likely to dramatically shatter out in sharp shards. Laminated safety glazing, on the other hand, consists of a tear-resistant film which, even upon glass breakage, remains intact and hard to break through without the correct tools or causing a disturbance. P4A is then purpose-made to be very resistant to impact.
If other factors such as privacy are of equally high priority, then different stained ornamental glazings can also be selected for your external door’s panel. Here again you are free to choose between different variants. Ornamental glazings, for example, come in differing degrees of opacity, altering the view for onlookers peering in while still creating bright interiors behind timber doors.
