En­try Doors with Dux­ton

Best Home (Canada) - - Contents -

With a broad prod­uct line driven by the needs of ar­chi­tects and de­sign­ers, Dux­ton con­tin­ues to in­no­vate, sat­is­fy­ing the de­mand for a va­ri­ety of styles that con­tin­u­ally chal­lenge in­dus­try stan­dards of form and scale.

As a defining fea­ture of the home, front en­tries can pro­vide a feel­ing of com­fort and se­cu­rity, and at the same time be bold and dis­tinct with de­sign the con­stant vari­able. Cus­tomiza­tion is the key in ex­press­ing in­di­vid­u­al­ity with tra­di­tional wood grains and dec­o­ra­tive glass now com­pet­ing with a mod­ern aes­thetic of stream­lined styles in strong colours like crim­son red, sunny yel­low, and bright or­ange.

With new builds, home­own­ers are now in­clined to ex­press them­selves through size. Height and width are now avail­able op­tions for cus­tom homes, with sidelite de­tails and tran­soms en­hanc­ing large-scale crafts­man­ship and al­low­ing nat­u­ral light to brighten in­te­ri­ors.

Dec­o­ra­tive glass fur­ther af­fords a blend of light and pri­vacy with flo­ral pat­terns now giv­ing way to more straight/ geo­met­ric lines. Peep­holes pro­vide a ready so­lu­tion for pri­vacy, as does ob­scured glass, of­fer­ing a har­mo­nious bal­ance with sand­blasted or misted se­lec­tions. State­ment-mak­ing hard­ware adds the jewellery or glint and glit­ter, with satin nickel and oil rubbed bronze still pop­u­lar choices. An­tique brass com­ple­ments his­toric-style homes with pe­riod ap­peal. Levers and knobs each pose their own ben­e­fits though some may ar­gue that levers re­quire less ef­fort from chil­dren and se­niors.

One may sim­ply look over­seas to Euro­pean-style doors that host some ex­cit­ing ad­vances, es­pe­cially for Canada’s ex­treme cli­mate. Typ­i­cally more sub­stan­tial, they are thicker, af­ford­ing more in­su­la­tion value or they have stepped edges that al­lows for dou­ble weather strip­ping. They also have more heavy-duty anti-theft hard­ware on both sides of the panel. Gain­ing greater in­ter­est from the pas­sive house and net zero builders, it may be very likely the way for­ward for im­proved health, dura­bil­ity, and se­cu­rity.

Ded­i­cated to clear beauty and high-per­for­mance, Dux­ton Win­dows & Doors builds for tem­per­a­ture ex­tremes that re­sult in op­ti­mum en­ergy ef­fi­ciency. De­liv­er­ing a com­bi­na­tion of in­su­lated fiber­glass frames with warm-edge dual, and triple pane glass, Dux­ton pro­vides some of the best in­no­va­tive func­tion avail­able.
