Everything should fit with your front door – above all, the look. After all, you use it several times a day. It should fill you with inspiration every time. There's no accounting for taste, as the saying goes. And this is why Gaulhofer offers a wide selection of designs featuring minimalist, classical or contemporary models, all characterised by high-quality materials and expert workmanship. It hardly needs saying: There'll be absolutely no problem in matching your front door to your Gaulhofer windows!
The role of the front door should not be underestimated when trying to save on heating costs, particularly if your home has one or more side doors. A robust construction with high insulation values and a sophisticated sealing system will ensure low energy bills and a delightfully cosy atmosphere in the home. Opening and closing smoothly thanks to the latest technology – for years to come.
A strong, secure front door gives a feeling of assurance not only to the house, but also its occupants. This will put many burglars off from the start. Thieves generally won't have it easy when faced with the challenging security features included with Gaulhofer front doors as standard – this is ensured by systems and devices such as multi-point locking. Our range is rounded off by optional security locking components as well as state-of-the-art biometric access control systems.
Gaulhofer's sturdy yet stylish front doors in wood or wood-aluminium radiate a pure feeling of nature as they are manufactured only from top-quality fine timber. The company generally uses spruce, larch or oak here, with lengthwise veneering as standard, although crosswise is also possible if preferred. If you like the look of knots or perhaps a brushed knotty appearance with a rustic, hand-oiled finish, you'll find what you want in Gaulhofer's range of front doors in larch and oak. People with more progressive tastes can opt for front doors in aluminium, which are becoming increasingly popular. Besides their futuristic look, they are above all characterised by an extremely long service life.
There are no limits to the range of options offered by Gaulhofer: Over 500 models are available here. You can give every front door your own personal touch with different handles, hardware and multi-faceted glazing. It is almost always possible to incorporate side elements. And extra-large models can also be manufactured on request – we are always pleased to supply a custom-made product.
In regions with high absolute temperature fluctuations we recommend Gaulhofer passive house doors as they are characterised by almost no warp in terms of building physics, even at temperatures of 35°C in summer and minus 35°C in winter. This guarantees full functionality where tightness and ease of use are concerned. Gaulhofer passive house doors do not just impress with higher energy savings thanks to special inserts, but also with increased stability, so ensuring greater safety and durability.
Pure wood is pure nature – inside and out. For true lovers of nature nothing else will do!
The natural appeal of a solid wood front door from inside seamlessly combined with aluminium weather protection outside.
Once you have already clarified during a professional consultation what requirements your Gaulhofer front door is to satisfy in terms of energy or security, you may well then make up your mind based on look. Every time you go in or out of your house should be a pleasant aesthetic experience!
In short: Lovers of nature should always opt for wood with its warm look and agreeable feel. For customers who are mindful of costs but also want maximum freedom of design, uPVC windows are generally the right choice. We recommend aluminium for people with a more extravagant taste, who then also benefit from an exceptionally lengthy service life.
All Gaulhofer front doors fundamentally offer very good insulation values, although higher-end models are of course also available for more stringent requirements. You should preferably ask your Gaulhofer specialist partner for advice in order to determine your precise needs and the options offered by Gaulhofer.
Aluminium cover shells hugely increase the level of weather protection for a front door. This is a particular advantage for wood, but also greatly prolongs the service life of uPVC front doors, ensuring a resistant finish that will look attractive for years to come. When it comes to variety of design, the wide range of colours also offers customers freedom of choice.
As with windows and balcony doors, the frame and glass should be cleaned regularly with suitable products. It is also recommended oiling the moving parts of the hardware. Detailed information is available, either from your Gaulhofer partner or in Gaulhofer's care instructions.
The Gaulhofer warranty guidelines or Gaulhofer's specialist partners can inform you about the different service conditions for each product. We recommend observing them without fail to preserve the value of your front door and benefit from the full warranty. This way you will significantly prolong the life of your windows and front door.
Despite its extremely stable design and following professional installation, your front door may sustain damage through improper use, either over the years or if force is applied. In this case you should contact your Gaulhofer specialist partner!
More and more front doors and above all lift and slide doors are offering options without any sill transition, but Gaulhofer also prioritises simple, effortless accessibility to guarantee unrestricted ease of use both children and older people.
Professional installation by a Gaulhofer specialist partner is essential, particularly in the case of rather complex building components such as front doors. If they are not fitted properly, relatively high stresses could be imposed on the hardware or locking parts, so causing the door to be used incorrectly and resulting in damage in the long term.
