door sets

Two words with lots of variables not least of which is whether you want interior or exterior door sets but lets find out exactly what a door set is and how it can tranform your home or your project, any single wooden door can be supplied as a door set or two doors can be supplied as a double door set.

If we take wooden door sets as our basis for explaining what a door set is it may be easier to undertsand.

Wooden door sets combine the door, a frame and depending on how much effort you want to put in (or not) it will combine the locks, handles, hinges, draught excluders and any other fittings all pre-assembled and fitted to the door which means you are ready to fit without any delays, there are other door set options such as having the door and frame delivered with all the fittings supplied loose, in this last example the frame could be supplied in kit form or made up ready for you to work on.

The PVC door sets or Composite door sets are all ready to install and in the main they have multi point locks fitted, they can work out a lot cheaper than timber (wooden) door sets but not as aesthetically pleasing as wood, the PVC may also not be as suitable stylistically speaking for the age of your home.

Handing;

This word above can confuse clients when measuring or fitting a door set, the word "handing" refers to which side the hinges are fixed to, especially important if the door and frame set is to be fitted with everything pre-installed on the door, handing should always be viewed from outside the home and to be clear there are 4 different ways to hinge a door so please be careful, see the diagrams below.
