Aluminium Double Door with Sidelights – Pirnar Optimum Model 8211, Weybridge

Location: Weybridge

A grand entrance of aluminium double door and sidelights has transformed this beautiful Mock Tudor detached property in Weybridge.

The detached property is located on one of Weybridge’s most desirable private residential roads. Working with both the architect and builder, we created a bespoke double door design to transform the entrance of this charming detached property.

As part of this Mock Tudor renovation, we also installed a full house of black leaded timber windows. The window colour and design work well with the external dark wood beams and creamy-white render and stay true to the period features and character of the property and encompass the modern expectations of energy-efficient double glazing, security and weather resistance.

Our senior designer manager Paul Mills worked closely with the Weybridge homeowners and architects from design to installation to ensure that the project ran to schedule.

The oversized entrance was a prominent feature in the renovation. The Weybridge homeowners were keen for a statement front door that would complement both the traditional exterior and contemporary interior décor.

Pirnar offers the most luxurious range of award-winning entrance doors in Europe. They can manufacture doors up to 3000 mm in height and 2800 mm in width for maximum impact.

After viewing the range of Pirnar front doors on display in our Bracknell showroom, the Weybridge homeowners opted for a double door design of two Pirnar Optimum Front doors (Model 8211) with two glazed side panels to allow natural light to flood into the hallway.

The Pirnar Optimum Model 8211 is characterised by its geometric design and features a simple horizontal groove line pattern.

The aluminium doors were chosen in powder-coated anthracite grey RAL7016 finish on the exterior and interior to enhance the house’s whole aesthetics and add a sense of grandeur to the entrance.

They also opted for a stainless-steel angular handlebar on the outside and a round handlebar on the inside.

Premium security measures are fitted in a combination of oversized hinges and a 3-point multi-lock system with massive hooks, ensuring this aluminium double door is extremely secure and robust.

The end result is stunning; the anthracite grey colour works seamlessly within the property and internal double doors and creates an eye-catching contrast to the brickwork and works well with the garage door and with light grey tiles and paving at the entrance.

The double doors each have a sleek flush panel; it’s minimalistic yet still boasts lots of character with decorative horizontal lines on both the doors and dual sandblasted Satinato glass sidelights.

The glazed sidelights offer privacy whilst still allowing natural light to enter through into the home’s grand hallway.

The horizontal lines and larger panels of these doors beautifully enhance the Weybridge detached property’s aesthetics, adding to the feeling of depth and space outside the entrance.

This luxurious Weybridge property has been completed to exceptionally high standards; an integral aspect of the renovation was luxurious materials and bespoke finishes.

This was reflected in the architectural glazing products of authentic black leaded timber windows and opulent double front doors, which have proved a significant property feature.

We were delighted to be part of this renovation project; working alongside both the architect and property developer has been a huge success. We transformed a traditional detached property into a luxurious modern home.
