Each residential door, including double and French doors, fabricated in Scotia’s 24,000 square feet factory is made from PVC-u extruded profile which is a purpose built extrusion designed to provide excellent thermal and noise insulation, security and to withstand the extremes of our Scottish climate.
Many cheaper products use window profile for doors, which for the first few years may not prove to be a problem, but as time goes by and the product has to prove its fitness for the job, unfortunately many fail.
At Scotia we are proud of the fact that our PVC-u doors and double doors (storm doors) have been approved by British Standards and have attained BS 7412 /PAS 23/24KM 590966 Kitemark for security and performance of our doors. We only manufacture doors using purpose built door extrusion and in order to ensure strength and rigidity the outer frame and the door leaf are reinforced with steel and aluminium. This steel reinforcement is then used as a fixing for our high security hinges and locking system which incorporates an impressive eight point “Yale” lock.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) provides advice and assessment of products through an organization called Secured by Design and many consumers have benefitted from the 75% reduction in the risk of crime through the standards and initiatives they set. Scotia PVC-u doors and double doors(french doors) exceed the standards required so you can sleep safe and sound knowing that your products will provide high levels of security. Each door comes complete with three robust high security flag hinges which are fixed into the steel reinforcement in order to provide better security. Many competitors fix their locking system with self tapping screws into the PVC-u. This can be a problem particularly if any force is applied as the screws tend to tear easily from the frame.
All Scotia doors are also internally beaded for security and 28 mm sealed units incorporating toughened low “e” toughened safety glass are fitted as standard which is much more difficult to break than standard float glass. Toughened glass also offers safety benefits. If it were to break the glass breaks into small pea size pieces, which are much less likely to harm members of your family, whereas float glass can break into large, sharp dangerous pieces.
Our residential doors come in a wide variety of designs and can incorporate side screens, fanlights, etc. The range is also available in a wide variety of colour options which include:
