Doors and Windows

Doors are used to block off or to prevent access to an entrance or enclosed space such as a room. Doors restrict heat loss or noise pollution and a locking mechanism provides additional security. Windows are openings in walls, doors or roofs, held by frames, which allow the passage of light through a transparent material while limiting air flow or sound when closed. Both doors and windows are usually made of similar materials. Wood, uPVC, aluminium, steel, fibreglass or composites are popular choices. There are an enormous range of doors and windows so property owners must consider factors such as the surrounding architectural design as well as the aesthetics. A choice of door would depend on whether it is for interior or exterior use. Common door types include a single- or double-leaf panel, a sliding door, a composite door or louvre door. Windows tend to be categorised as to whether they open vertically (double-hung sash), horizontally (awning) or if only one part of the window opens (single-hung sash). Doors and windows are an indispensable part of any building, whether it is domestic, commercial or industrial. They vary in their size, convenience, security as well as their appearance.
