Glazed doors, the clear choice

Summer is upon us, bringing with it increased light levels to building interiors.  This natural borrowed light is invaluable, illuminating dark spaces and reducing the need for artificial light.  With this in mind its worth giving closer consideration to the use of glazed interior doors that can transform both living and communal space.

Vicaima doors are of course renown for innovative designs in an extensive range of finishes and performance characteristics to suit a multitude of applications. It’s little wonder then that this range is complimented by a comprehensive array of glazed options to match the needs of today’s social housing market. 

Of course light is just one of the many factors to consider when selecting glazed interior doors for social housing. Safety must of course be of paramount concern, whether directly from the use of safety glass or less apparent but no less important where fire doors are concerned.

Vicaima is a leader in fire door technology with one of the widest ranges of FD30 and FD60 doors and doorsets (i.e. designed to resist a fire for 30 and 60 minutes respectively) in the UK. The company’s particular appeal is that it makes fire doors which are also beautifully designed. At Vicaima all fire doors are supplied factory glazed to ensure risks are removed.

Glazing is a particular concern for fire doors as, unless correctly installed, it can create a weak area in the door. Historically, 6mm thick wired glass was the only option, however modern glass technology has led to the development of much more aesthetically pleasing glazed fire doors.

Another important consideration in the selection of glazed doors is of course the requirements for clear visibility as stipulated under Part M of the Building regulations. Again here many Vicaima glazed door designs address this issue, providing complete mobility solutions.

Selecting the right glazed door is a simple process with help and assistance from the Vicaima Interior Door selector.  This handy guide, available both in print and digital format via the Vicaima website, enables quick and easy choice of door design. 

A wide variety of glazing models can be offered, so it’s just a matter of deciding which finish is required and then paring it with the chosen aperture pattern.  Of course non-standard or bespoke designs can also be provided in many instances, so that specific design requirements can be accommodated.

And in addition to flush doors and door sets, Vicaima have recently introduced a new Classic K range.  This modern twist on the conventional panelled design also includes glazed options, making it ideal where traditional and contemporary styling needs to meld.

Classic with a Modern Twist

Interior design like all fashion evolves with the times and so the march of contemporary movement can often seem relentless.  Of course a sense of tradition and warmth for the past often shapes our thinking with modern decor and so it is hardly surprising that Vicaima has seen a trend for panelled doors making a noticeable return over the past year.

In response to this latest vogue, Vicaima have reinvigorated their Classic K range to provide a modern twist to an old favourite with some exciting new finishes.

The Vicaima Classic K Range takes elements of shaker styling but with a more up-to-date and appealing look for the modern generation of interior panelled doors.

Available in 1, 2, 3 and 4 panel designs, together with glazed options, Classic K doors offer a solid construction with real veneer faces, together with white or primed for on-site painting if required.

In addition to the ever popular veneer options, Vicaima have also extended the range to include 6 new factory stained Ash finishes and for that ultra-smooth pure look, a new Satin White finish.  All doors are available with fire and security options and can also be supplied as Portaro matching door and frame systems where required.
