What you need to consider when a looking for a Communal door option

Naturally, every buyer will have a set of different priorities when it comes to choosing their doors, however, we would argue that things like visual aesthetics, quality and obviously, security are the things that matter the most.

Because of this, solutions such as steel communal entrance doors seems to be gaining immense popularity, since they offer a combination of these benefits within a single product. Our steel door range allows you to adapt a good-looking, durable and extremely secure door solution for your work or residential area.

Moreover, every solution in our communal door range has options for different budgets, which means that every customer can find the right product for the amount that they are willing to spend, all without sacrificing quality and security.
Whether it’s the most basic set of doors or top of the line models featuring more exotic materials and luxurious finishes, we can assure that everyone will find what they are looking for within our solutions.

Key features of bespoke Communal entrance doors

As mentioned in the previous section, there are many factors to consider before deciding on what product to buy. We already talked about stainless steel doors and how they are gaining traction in the industry as being sort of a jack of all trades solution for many customers.

This is mainly because it offers much more sturdiness within itself than other alternatives such as aluminum or metal alloy variants. Furthermore, those steel structures can easily be improved upon by adapting various solutions for the door leaf, frame, locks, among other things.

Some of the main aspects of our Communal doors include:

  • Fully accredited security option – Every single one of communal entrance doors that we offer are graded for the EN 1627:2011 security class, which means they are secured by design. Furthermore, every solution is periodically tested for burglar resistance in accordance with EN 1627:2011 and A1:2016 standards.
  • Enhanced door frame – all of our communal doors are made from a reinforced steel frame ensuring the best possible security and durability with the top of the range model offering as much as 115 mm thickness in steel panels.
  • Flexibility in terms of design – just because you choose a sturdy option for your communal entrance, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the overall look of your workspace or residential building. Allow us to customize your doors in terms of opening direction, structure and preferred design style.
  • Bespoke lock system – one of the features we’re most proud of in our doors is the advanced multipoint locking system ensuring additional safety for any building. This solution also comes with a specialized manganese plate providing additional protection against drilling.
  • Major focus on insulation – we understand that various fire hazards can be a common issue for many people interested in the right set of communal doors. Our solutions are developed with a major focus on thermal insulation, with a 60 mm layer of rock wool being at its core.

Among other things.

Most common types of Communal entrance doors

When considering a set of security doors for your workspaces or communal entrances, deciding on the right door type in terms of the way it operates can be a crucial step for convenience.

Here are some of these types below.

  1. Swing doors – the most common type of door is a simple set of swing security doors where the door leaf opens up and closes manually. These standard doors are especially common in residential areas, which is why they are one of most popular types of communal doors out there.
  2. Sliding doors – choosing a set of modern and quality steel security doors, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. These types of doors operate automatically via an electronic access control system and can offer better ease of access, while still maintaining their sturdy nature.
  3. Storage doors – these doors are specifically designed for those that want enhanced security for an area involving valuable storage and other goods which means that they often come with security grilles to provide extra protection. They’re most common on business premises. Access control can also be customized by design for manual or automatic use.
  4. Custom options – custom steel doors can be designed based on the unique circumstances of a residential, social housing or workspace building. Again, here the access control and other factors can be engineered to your needs as well. If you’re actively looking for such an option, be sure to contact our team and see what can be done for your project.

What makes such a door solution different from others?

Out of all types of security doors out there, communal steel doors are the best option when we want to significantly enhance the safety of the people and goods within an active area such as a household, business entrance, hallway, etc.

Designed with quality, longevity and secured by design, there is no better and more universal option when it comes to protecting both private and public entries.

Regardless of whether you are looking for standard doors, and a simple, functional solution, or a more upscale and luxurious variant with extravagant finishes, it is necessary to design, deliver and install the best communal door solution possible, ensuring the maximum safety of the people and their valuables within an area.

Here at Secure House, we’re also able to advise on compliance and safety for any new or existing communal entrance doors project. As a landlord or owner of a communal property development, there are certain Building Regulations and legislation that you must comply with when it comes to fire safety.

For example, did you know that communal flat entrance steel doors that form part of a fire compartment within the building must be fire doors? They are one of the most important features of a building’s fire precautions as they are designed to stop a fire spreading and enable anyone inside to escape safely via fire exits.

So, if you’re looking to add common doors to your communal entrances or update existing doors, please don’t hesitate to give us a call for professional advice and support to ensure you choose the right products that will further enhance your property and provide safety, security and peace of mind for occupants.
