Glass Options:

 

1. Frosted with clear lines.

2. Frosted.

3. Reflex. The glass is transparent when looking straight into it and reflective when looking under an angle.

 

Three panes of glass are used for encreased energy efficiency. This feature blocks 86% of the sun's ultraviolet rays.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aluminum Frame "Thermo" keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

High thermal insulation means less wasted heat and energy. Aluminum frames "Thermo" are more energy efficient than stainless steel frames. The frame is constructed in such a way to avoid any thermal bridges. A piece of composite material with higher thermal resistance separates interior and exterior parts of the frame, thus preventing heat transfer.

 

In additional to higher R values, aluminum frames are corrosion resistant, which makes them suitable for harsh enviroments such as coastal regions.

Why doors freeze?

A regular metal door, wether it's insulated or not, will freeze. It doesn't matter how much insulation implemented and how thick is a metal sheet. A metal door is constructed with a closed metal profile (a hollow metal profile with closed cross section). Stainless steel has a high thermal conductivity. Freezing happens fast.

To avoid freezing, VilleDoors implements metal profiles with "thermorupture". A piece of material with low thermal conductivity divides interior and exterior parts of the door.

 

 

Sample of a bad insulated door. Condensate, or as a result, frost is formed on the warmer, interior side. It's a natural physical process, when there is a big difference in temperature inside and outside, supported by humidity and cold metal surface in a warm invironment.

 

 

Same conception applies for hot regions, such as Miami, Florida. Well insulated door helps to save energy for an air conditioned room. 

 

 

 

Stainless Steel Frames are less expensive. They are widely used when exceptional thermal insulation is not required. Stainless steel frames are good for regions with a moderate climate, that is neither too hot nor too cold. It is not violent nor is it subject to extreme weather condition but is mostly mild or calm. However, stainless steel frames are available only for single doors. Doors with sidelites and transoms come with aluminum frame "Thermo". Contact customer service for pricing.

Stainless Steel Double Doors

 

Double doors are the doors with both leafs active, meaning both doors can be opened when needed. One door remains closed by means of flush bolts. The doors can be produced in different sizes. For example 36"+36", 36"+20", 36"+18", 36"+12".
