Let the fresh air in whilst ensuring pets and children stay indoors.

Spring has arrived and with this change in season comes warmer weather and brighter evenings. With this in mind, many people choose to utilise the sunnier weather by flooding their home with natural daylight and fresh air. However, any household with pets or toddlers (or both), will understand the frustration of wanting to let the fresh air in whilst ensuring their pets and children stay indoors.

In this blog post we reveal some of the key benefits of composite stable doors to help you decide if it’s the right choice for your property.

Stable doors, sometimes referred to as barn doors, were originally designed to contain horses in their stables and for farm houses to keep chickens and other animals out. This concept has since been developed and it’s now possible to have a composite stable door installed into your home.

Stable doors feature a wealth of benefits, of which include:

  • Practicality - This is likely the most popular benefit to homeowners. Stable doors function as a two-part system in which the top part of the door opens, allowing natural daylight and air to enter your home whereas the bottom part has the option to remain closed. This feature is the ideal solution for families with children or pets as it keeps them indoors whilst allowing you to enjoy fresh air.

  • Improved ventilation - Stable doors are an excellent feature in any kitchen as they offer increased ventilation by letting an abundance of fresh air in, helping to eliminate any unpleasant or overwhelming odours.

  • Secure - Our composite stable doors feature state-of-the-art multipoint locking systems and we also use a Kommerling outer frame reinforced with galvanised steel to give you a door that is extremely secure in the event of an attempted break-in.

  • Energy efficient - All of our composite doors feature a thermally efficient 48mm thick solid hardwood timber core and Pilkington KS glass which helps to improve heat retention within the home and keep cold draughts at bay.

  • Low maintenance - Another benefit of composite doors is that they’re low maintenance and require minimal TLC to ensure they stay looking fresh and flawless. You can read our useful composite door maintenance guide here.

  • A choice of styles - Whether your property is a contemporary new build or a homely cottage, composite stable doors come in a selection of different designs, enabling you to choose the style that best suits your home.

  • Colours - Chartwell Green or classic White, our composite stable doors come in 25 exciting shades meaning you can choose a colour to reflect your sense of style and complement your property. What’s more you can choose a different colour for each side of your door, allowing you to choose a shade that matches your decor.
