Residence ‘embracing’ hand-crafted entrance doors

Following the launch of Residence Doors at the FIT Show, The Residence Collection says it is ‘embracing bespoke and hand-crafted entrance door manufacturing’ by using existing sash and bead profiles, coupled with a performance door panel in either 28 or 44mm.

This means that existing manufacturers of The Residence Collection can ‘seamlessly’ move in to the entrance door market with the options of R2, R7 and R9 frames and the common sashes, mullions and glazing beads across the range. According to The Residence Collection, the manufacturing techniques are not too dissimilar to the way in which timber doors are made, with the added benefit of the larger, smaller, wider or slimmer sizes that composite doors cannot accommodate. The panels can be sourced in foils or sprayed to match the sashes and frames.

Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection commented: “Our customers now have the opportunity to manufacture entrance doors with existing profiles, coupled with high performance panels. It’s also a manufacturing philosophy that’s true to the heritage of The Residence Collection.

“We now have a product platform that will enable us to penetrate the door market as a whole, through our customers and backed by our wondrous brand.”
