Steel Doors

The first thing you need to know about steel doors and windows is that contrary to popular belief, most of these doors and windows are not made entirely of steel. Solid metal doors are typically found in places like military or naval bases, but they are too heavy and bulky to be used in homes or even most businesses. Ordinary steel doors usually consist of a wood or foam core, which is then covered with what is known as 24-gauge steel. This means that the thickness of the coating is 0.07mm and the weight is approximately 0.52 kilograms. Steel windows are basically a frame made of steel and glass. If you are concerned about aesthetics, you should know that you can get doors clad in steel on the outside but with hardwood or oak panelling on the inside. This means your home is secure, but the door still looks good. Steel doors give your home or business a slightly industrialized look and offer unobstructed views outside.
