What are the different types of arched doors?

Ready to transform the look of your home? What better way to do so than to invest in an arched door from ArcOframe today?

Every time you visit a house, no matter how big or small, it’s likely, the first thing you notice is the front door. An arched door could be just what you need to accentuate style at your home.

Arched doors are one of the oldest styles known to man. Yet, despite this, they are nothing short of stunning and will make the ideal entrance to your home.

In today’s blog, we’re looking at the different types of arched doors available to purchase, and how they can create the perfect façade. So let’s get started.

Arched composite doors

Arched composite doors give the look and feel of a traditional cottage door but with all the same benefits of a modern system. Thanks to energy-efficient glazing and advanced weather seals, they offer better thermal efficiency than most conventional timber doors and will outlast them – meaning you won’t need to replace them as often.

As their name suggests, composite doors are made from various materials, including compressed polyurethane foam or compressed hardwood, and guarantee strength. The core material can also be moulded – mimicking the door pattern or shape.

Our arched composite doors are manufactured with an arched frame for a complementary look and are available in an assortment of colourways. We also provide a selection of glass options – allowing you to personalise your composite doors.

One of the biggest appeals to arched doors, like these, is that’s they come supplied with adjustable security hinges, 9 times more thermal and sound insulation than timber doors, and (optional) automated locking.

Arched composite doors are a great choice if you’re looking for doors that can:

  • be used internally and externally
  • retain heat in cooler months (i.e. winter) and keep rooms cool during warmer summer months
  • enhance safety and security
  • be cleaned easily

The only downside is that they come at a greater price, which is to be expected given that they offer so much more than other systems.

Arched UPVC doors

Want to add a modern twist to the exterior of your home with sophisticated doors, but don’t have a huge budget to work with? Relax, our arched UPVC doors tick all the right boxes.

Arched UPVC doors are perfect for you if you’re on a budget and want to benefit from:

  • low maintenance
  • excellent thermal efficiency
  • a choice of UPVC arched frames
  • increased property value

Although not as robust as composite doors which are filled with dense, solid foam and almost impenetrable, our arched UPVC doors are still secure and have a  multi-point locking system which can deter potential intruders. Due to them being hollower than their composite counterparts, these arched doors come at a more affordable price – allowing you to enhance your home’s natural beauty without burning a hole in your pocket.
