It is exceedingly difficult to find a supplier of high-quality, design-focused external entrance doors, particularly with natural hardwood finishes. Urban Front are one of a very small number of suppliers making stunning doors in a variety of contemporary styles, a number of which are Passivhaus Certified.
The doors are constructed with a steel frame, and a paraffin insulation core, providing a strong, rigid and ventilated core, with a 6mm solid hardwood facing bonded on.
This provides an attractive, and durable door which is very resistant to warping and movement, while still providing excellent thermal performance (U-Value). Due to the extra insulation required, the Passiv Certified door is nearly 4 inches thick!!
They also do a fantastically designed off-centre pivot door (in some really imposing sizes!) but due to the complexity of the seals, it unfortunately can’t be used on Hilltop as it is not Passiv Certified
