If you live in an apartment block but still want attractive design, excellent functionality and maximum security, a new front door by KOMPOtherm® is precisely what you need. This applies both to new builds and to the replacement of an existing front door as part of a modernisation project. Interestingly, replacing the door will be much faster than you might think. Usually it takes just a few hours, creates hardly any dirt and does not damage wallpaper, flooring or plaster. So you can enjoy all the benefits of a HOMEtherm® front door for your apartment in no time at all:
- more security
- improved thermal insulation
- effective noise protection
- attractive look
- convenient barrier-free design
Outside doors are the calling cards of your home. This applies to the front doors to houses, as well as to apartments. The first impression lasts! That’s why you should make sure you create a stylish, well-kept and harmonious look in addition to ensuring excellent functionality. Not only does the front door to an apartment separate your home from the public areas of a house, it also shapes the style of the hallways both outside and inside the space. Anyone who cares about an attractive design of their apartment door will be impressed by the huge selection that KOMPOtherm® offers. Shape, colour, material, décor, fittings and features – everything can be individually adapted to your personal style of living. The added HOMEtherm® flourish: different coatings can be applied to the inside and outside of your front door. This keeps things looking uniform outside in the hallway, while the inside can be designed individually to suit your taste. Owners in shared buildings are particularly fond of this option. Not only do the concealed hinges improve security, they also ensure a harmonious appearance. HOMEtherm® doors are always manufactured as custom products, so that special sizes are also possible, including particularly wide, tall or slender doors. Doors can be completely solid or equipped with glazed sections on request. This adds a very personal touch to the design of your apartment door. Visit your KOMPOtherm® dealer for detailed advice.
Branded quality is more than just the workmanship, the choice of materials and the reliable technology – often it is the small things that make a big difference as well. For instance, your HOMEtherm® door can be equipped with a retractable sweep at no extra charge and will therefore not require a sill. Your own four walls in an entirely barrier-free design? Great news for everyone who depends on a rollator, wheelchair or other mobility devices. This type of front door is particularly suitable for new builds with apartments that are designed for the elderly. After all, there is no need to accept compromises in terms of sound insulation or noise protection, even without a sill. By the way, effective protection against noise is increasingly the reason for replacing an old front door with a new one. That's why we always focus on the aspect of noise protection during the design phase. People want to kick back and relax in their own four walls after a busy and hectic day. Does that sound familiar?
"Viewed from the inside, front doors to apartments tend to be seen as items of furniture due to their size. Useful details in your HOMEtherm® door accentuate this perception.
For instance, an integrated clothes hook fitted to the inside leaf of your new front door provides space to hang jackets or dog leashes. And you can simply fold the hook inward when it is not in use. It is held firmly in position by a magnet. An additional mirror enables a final check of your appearance before leaving the apartment.
These optional accessories gives your apartment front door a few practical benefits that you will soon find almost unmissable.
*) The coat hook is optionally available in a square or oval design. The mirror has a width of 25 cm and a height of 180 cm."
- The aluminium profiles are extremely robust and do not warp, even after years of use. Additional corner pieces ensure excellent torsional rigidity.
- The HPL coating surface is highly resistant to abrasion, shocks and scratches and is also very easy to clean.
- The circumferential sealing system keeps warmth in your home when the door is shut and makes sure that the cold stays out. Even draughts no longer stand a chance.
- Three sealing levels protect your home from annoying noise and unpleasant odours from the hallway.
- Among other things, the basic features of your door include three concealed, adjustable hinges that are maintenance-free and allow precise adjustment of your new front door.
You see: a closer look at your HOMEtherm®apartment front door by KOMPOtherm® reveals that it keeps what it promised at first glance. Investing in quality is the better choice, also when buying a door.
Even the basic version of your new front door by KOMPOtherm® satisfies the requirements of resistance class RC 2. The police advises the use of this class not only for family homes, but also for the front doors to apartments. After all, professional gangs of thieves have started casting their net wider than just family homes. Burglars are increasingly targeting apartments as well. But don’t worry: your HOMEtherm® apartment front door can resist attempted break-ins and will remain stubbornly shut when it really counts. To ensure this, we have equipped the doors with:
- Concealed hinges to obstruct forced entry
- A seven-point lock with continuous stainless steel face plate that holds the leaf firmly in its frame
- A lock system that can withstand even impact opening and electric lock picking, and
- reversible keys with security card to prevent unauthorised duplication.
We care deeply about your safety. That’s why we support the nationwide K-BURGLARY police campaign. The initiators have set themselves the goal of raising awareness for responsible burglary prevention. And burglar-resistant front doors and apartment doors are necessary elements of an effective burglary prevention strategy.
- Spyhole: We can offer you standard spyholes or digital versions with screen (also ideal for people with physical disabilities).
- Safety catch: This mechanism lets you leave the door slightly ajar, without running the risk that someone will force it open from outside.
- Slide rail closing mechanism: It automatically pulls the door back into the lock after opening.
A ruling by the Regional Court of Frankfurt am Main states that front doors in apartment buildings must not be locked in order to avoid obstructing the escape route. But that makes it easier for burglars to gain entry to the house. It is therefore all the more important to keep your home safe by fitting your apartment with a burglary-resistant front door!
If the front door to an apartment is to be replaced, the door frame is fitted inside the existing steel frame and then bolted tight to the brickwork. The door frame perfectly hides the old steel frame, and your new front door can be fitted quickly and neatly.
Unrebated assembly is also possible, for instance in new builds. This involves mounting the block frame on the finished plaster surface. Alternatively, it can be installed on the raw brickwork and plastered later on.
All KOMPOtherm® dealers have been trained in the professional assembly of our products. After all, your apartment front door will only satisfy the requirements of security, heat insulation and noise protection if it is installed correctly.
The HOMEtherm® programme also includes T30 fire doors. This means that the frame, leaf, lock, fittings and the overhead door closer required for this type can withstand flames and temperatures of 800° Celsius for a period of at least 30 minutes. That’s enough time to make an escape in the event of a fire. Anyone who is particularly concerned about noise insulation would be well-advised to pick an acoustic door (Rp = 44 dB) by HOMEtherm®. Among other things, the sound-absorbent design includes an aluminium sweep with retractable floor seal.
