Prospective buyers are looking for three things: quality, service and aesthetics. Our latest launch, the Soho External Door, encapsulates all these elements. The new exterior door is a bi-fold, French and single door system designed for the modern era. It not only boasts steel-look glazing bars and ultra-slim sightlines, but it is already 2025 Future Homes compliant.

Tailored Aesthetics

Responding to trends is important for anyone looking to attract new clients and grow their business in 2024. The Soho External Door imitates modern style preferences with fully bespoke glazing bar configurations. This offers flexibility when creating a specific look for a property. To create a heritage look, customers can specify more glazing bars, or for an industrial, steel look, clients can opt for fewer. What’s more, the new exterior door can be specified as a bi-fold, French or Single door.
