Entry Doors with Duxton
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.
