Silverhill is a contemporary property in Alderley Edge, Cheshire. Lakes Doors Architectural installed an Oikos Tekno in open pore oak.
Silverhill – Project Details
The client approached Lakes Doors Architectural to replace the entrance door and sidelight on their 2 year old property. Due to the poor quality of the original door it had become difficult to use and was not weather tight. Furthermore there was security concerns regarding the sidelight.
Whilst the functionality was poor the client was happy with the look of the original door. Consequently the task was to provide a new door that looked similar but performed in all the areas the old door failed.
Oikos Tekno is the perfect product to achieve this. Firstly the core of the door is steel. As a result the problem of warping that the original oak door had Tekno cannot suffer from. Most noteworthy about Tekno and all Oikos doors is that it can be covered with almost any material. Therefore it was easy to match the design of the old door. The finish on the new door was open pore oak in RAL 9005 Jet Black.
High security comes as standard will all our Oikos doors. Combined with the steel core comes multi-point finger bolt locking. Furthermore sidelights are laminated, sledgehammer-proof glass.
Due to the old door being so draughty the client was keen for the new one to be highly thermally efficient. The new door has a thermal value of 1.0 and fully seals all round.
The stainless steel handle from the Synua range make a nice contrast against the Jet Black finish. Again, the flush internal handle is borrowed from the Synua range and in stainless steel.
