Why Deuren is technically superior

Our front doors are made to measure. Our expert craftsmen ensure the highest quality product comes out of our UK factory so you can be confident they will slot in perfectly at your home. Deuren contemporary front doors couple ease of use with outstanding design.

Engineered timber for longevity

Entrance doors must be capable of withstanding severe temperature and humidity differentials between the inside and outside of the door leaf. Deuren doors are rigorously tested to avoid warping, shrinking or expanding over time.

A seamless, matching aesthetic

Our front doors, frames and architraves are each made from the same batch of timber from the same tree, resulting in a beautifully consistent finish. Plus, you can choose any paint hue for the reverse of the door to ensure it perfectly matches your home interior.

Premium-quality hardware

Exceptional, innovative hardware is standard with every Deuren door. Hinges disappear completely out of view when the door is closed. Handles are so much more than a ‘finishing touch’ - our bar, lever or inset handles leave a lasting impression on visitors.

State-of-the-art technology

Deuren’s modern front doors can be made to be compatible with home automation systems for easy and convenient access and the highest levels of security. Fingerprint or keypad locking systems are available on many of our designs.

Highly secure to meet standards

Deuren doors are built to the European equivalent of the PAS 24 enhanced security standard and adhere to classification RC2 and RC3. The whole door – panel, frame and lock – is tested to the classification, providing peace of mind of fully compliant, highest-security contemporary front doors.

Design-to-installation service

Deuren’s comprehensive service begins with initially immersing ourselves in your vision, before constructing the design and surveying measurements. We’ll then manufacture your doors and can arrange for mess-free installation at your property.

What are the benefits of a front door with glazed panel?

Create real statement style

Your front door with glass panels can be arranged in whichever style you’d like – each option makes for a magnificent entryway to wow visitors. Opt for one glazed panel above the frame to allow natural light to flood into darker hallways from a height, creating ambience and a feeling of space. Alternatively add two glazed panels either side of the door frame for outstanding effect.

Facilitate natural light flow

An obvious advantage to glass or glazed panels framing your front door is that they encourage natural light to flood your home. This free flow of natural light boosts moods and wellbeing, as well as helps rooms to feel more spacious and help save money on electricity bills too. 

Make a real feature of your doors by specifying in a configuration to suit you.
