Another category of steel doors – so-called "elite" steel door. Typically, this the doors of foreign manufacture (European, for example GERDA), which are expensive forms of external and internal finishes (MDF, veneer), as well as expensive locks, accessories (also imported). By the weaknesses of such doors should be attributed to considerable cost – from $ 1,500 and greater delivery times. The latter category – it's metal doors of the domestic production. They are optimal in terms of price and quality (from U.S. $ 350).
Similar between is at first glance thanks to finishing materials (vinil. leather, hardboard, MDF, veneer., polymer coating), they are quite different in design and internals. First, allocate and welded tselnognutye construction of the box and the door leaf. The level of burglary, technology of production and the appearance of winning tselnognutye door. Loops can be used open or hidden.
Open loop revealed 180 degrees, but their level of burglary is much lower than the implicit (the opening angle of about 110 degrees). The thickness of the hidden hinge must be at least 6 millimeters to the door leaf does not sag over time. Cloth door must should be strengthened an additional system of ribs, protivootgibochnymi corners, and insulated (Isover, min. wadding, foam). Scope of locks must be strengthened against the plate, drilling, strengthen the special pencil under locks. Need to trust those producers who can provide you with complete and clear information on the design of manufactured doors.

Weak side of the door, perhaps, is their appearance (for doors with vinyl trim. Skin), "bored" with the Soviet era, although this drawback can be minimized if we choose a finish MDF, veneer, particle board (extra 120-300 dollars). When considering the strengths of the metal doors of domestic production, they include: 1. optimal of price and quality 2. a wide range of materials used, locks. 3. production according to individual customer's sizes. 4. local manufacturer warranty. Domestic market of metal doors sufficiently representative, thanks to the choice of these doors can rely on the experience and reputation of the manufacturer, the professionalism of the sales and installation teams.
