Glazed doors

To glaze or not to glaze your entry door?

There are so many options when it comes to choosing a new entry door; colour, size, design, just to name a few. However, there is one choice that may seem less obvious when deciding; to glaze or not to glaze.

Here at Hume, our entry doors offer a range of different glass options, so the question remains; should you glaze?

The solution was commonplace in 17th century England – when glass was often made of animal horn – but today has been modified and is mostly used for safety, temperature control and style.

For example, our Bush Fire Resistant doors use 6mm tempered safety glass – thus ensuring it meets regulatory requirements of a building in a designated bushfire zone. This glazing option is one of the strongest and is created with safety in mind.

Whereas doors that use our double-glazed technology are a popular option for those living in extreme climates. The system is as simple as it sounds, double pieces of glass with a small gap between the two. The process by which these doors are made makes them highly-insulative and perfect for customers wanting to maintain a comfortable temperature in their homes.

The final reason, style, has to do with how the glass looks once it has been glazed.

Not all glazed doors have to be clear glazed, we provide a number of glass options for each door range so you can choose the perfect match for your home.

Within our range of entrance doors, there are several which include glass features – such as the Illusion, Carringbush, Newington and more. Of these, there are design differences relating to the glass types available for that specific range.

From the sleek and contemporary options of Clear, Grey Tint, Africana and Frost/Translucent to Triple Glazed leadlight and Coloured Frost designs to suit our more traditional door ranges.

There are several reasons one may glaze their entrance door but it often comes down to the individual’s style preferences and the unique home.
