How does a stable door work

Stable doors have been around for a long time. They have traditionally been used on farms and other places where livestock and especially horse are kept, for their inherent practical qualities. However, these days many more people are incorporating a uPVC stable door or PVC stable door into their homes because of their obvious benefits.

How does a stable door open?

A stable door might appear to be similar to most other doors at first glance; however a stable door is split into an upper and lower half normally, and allows either of the two halves to be opened independently. This provides the user with some obvious benefits in terms of convenience and even safety.

If a stable door is installed as the front door of your home, then being able to open only the top half to answer the door to anyone, can provide added security and not allow anyone to barge in or get a foot in the door to gain entry.

Stable doors also allow a nice flow of fresh air into your home during fine weather, without the need to open the lower part of the door. This can give you peace of mind, especially if you have young children or pets at home, knowing that they can’t get out easily.

From traditional to contemporary

Stable doors have always been a part of traditional country architecture, but they have come a long way recently, and now they are appearing in suburbs and even cities. Modern technology has eliminated many of the ‘quaint’ but bothersome problems of traditional stable doors, such as being draughty, leaking or easy to break through. Stable doors used as external doors nowadays are designed to comply with national quality standards just like normal front or back doors. They are also manufactured using the same materials and the uPVC stable door or PVC stable door product ranges are almost as wide and varied.

Safety has been improved also, with high quality and burglar resistant security locks being fitted as standard. Improved weather sealing and frame fitting have also made many problems associated with stable doors a thing of the past, which leaves homeowners with a rather interesting and novel, but secure and practical alternative for their external doors
