As far as first impressions go, you really can’t be too careful when it comes to the front entrance of a house. Fresh potted plants, adequate natural lighting – these are all important, but how many of us ignore the single biggest element that are, quite literally, staring us in the face? We are of course, talking about the front door, and not many people are aware that a neat and stylish front door is a crucial factor.

So what are the main factors you should be thinking about when purchasing a new front door?

Choosing a front door largely comes down to pairing it with the style of your house or building. For instance, if your house is a Victorian Semi-detached in East Lothian or West Lothian, in most (but not all) cases a traditional style will suit your house best.

Here we outline the main elements we think are important to consider when purchasing that perfect front door for your home and the guidelines by which all of our Magnum Composite Doors achieve and follow:

Though we talk about door styles and trends, the main focus when purchasing a Front door or Composite door, is safety. Here at Bryant and Cairns we are always looking for the best resolutions and highest standards of product. With the NEW Ultion Lock system now fitted as standard to all of our Composite doors, you will sleep well knowing you have the best locking system available and ultimate means of stopping any intruder getting into your home.

The shocking statistics show that it would take an intruder no longer than 9 seconds to break through your standard front door lock. With its patented Lock-Down mode, the Ultion Lock offers unrivalled levels of security to keep your home and your family safe.

Any attempt to tamper with the Ultion Lock triggers it’s unique patented core to trigger and engage in ‘lock down’ meaning that the lock cannot be broken or removed and stops the intruder from getting through your door.
