Top glazed Georgian door painted blue

Whilst many Georgian front doors were made with six solid panels, occasionally the top panels were replaced with glazing.   This house had a frame without a fanlight above, so a glazed Georgian door was essential to get some light into the hallway.  We were asked “can we make a door that was strong, warm and have glass”?  The answer was “yes, we have been working on the design for over 40 years to develop exactly that spec”!

Door specification

We made a new Accoya door and an Accoya door frame, ensuring that the fitting was perfect with draught proofing seals to all four sides.  With a new frame, the door is made extra thick at 57mm and is built with strong mortice and tenon joints and laminated panels for security.

The glass in this glazed Georgian door is of course toughened and also double glazed, keeping the house warm and secure. The glass has a satin etch, making it obscure although many people feel happy with clear glass.   Both the new Georgian door and frame were painted in our workshop with satin Teknos paint, meaning it will look great for ages.   Our customer picked a traditional lock setup, which consists of a nightlatch at around shoulder height and a deadlock in the lower section of the door.   The locks fitted were made by Banham, of which are insurance approved and super strong.  We are also able to offer you more modern locking systems.
