UK: Glazed Doors: Glazed Door Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT GLAZED DOORS
Glazed doors, usually supplied for external use as front or back doors or as French windows, may be made of timber, UPVC, or Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP). The glazing may be full height, or confined to the upper part, with solid panels below. Traditional glazing uses several small pans, divided by glazing bars. More modern designs of glazed door will contain a single sheet of glass, usually an Argon-filled double glazing unit. Traditional hand-made hardwood Victorian style glazed doors are also available. These can be supplied with authentic hand-made stained glass panels. Leading UK suppliers of glazed doors are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
