Our ancestor has the proverb "one year builds home, three years make the door", which shows that the door is a very important part of the house. Previously, for traditional houses, doors were usually made of open-ended wood in combination with bars and wood blades. As for the more luxurious houses, the windows are designed in glass, leaf outside and the iron bars and pine wood doors in the middle.

With the development of economy - society, traditional doors are gradually replaced with modern doors to prevent noises, heat, dust, have high durability and open in many modes and less paint and repair. Modern doors include: wings molds, door frames and studs made from different types of profiles such as uPVC, aluminum, aluminum and wood or high quality processed aluminium wood.

Modern doors do not have steel bars or wooden leaves that are replaced with safety glass, toughened glass or glass cases with decorative beads and sunblinds. In addition, modern doors also have accessory with multi-point, double anti-aging gaskets mounted on the mold and the door, when the wing is pressed firmly on the mold to ensure high tightness.

Currently, uPVC profiles are being used most commonly in the world because they are much more affordable than aluminum’s with high insulating design and processed wood profiles. Aluminum profiles with insulation design cost more than 1.5 to 2 times uPVC’s. Wood profiles are much more expensive, so only high-end villas will be used. UPVC profiles are mainly suitable for apartment buildings, single-door villas, independent walls. Office buildings, commercial centers, buildings usually use large glass wall aluminum glass because of the lightweight aluminum profile, good load, the good standard of hardness.

UPVC profiles compose Acrylic Polymers for tough, impact resistant plastic; Stabilizer to help the plastic to withstand the effects of heat and ultraviolet light; Wax to create a glossy beautiful profile’s surface, additives to prevent oxidation, keep the original beauty. Profile bar structure has the cavity to provide insulation better, steel core to enhance the load-bearing.

In current window market the majority is thin and weak aluminum profiles, with no thermal insulation, so the heat transfer is very high. However, in order to save money, people still use aluminum without insulation. With the harsh climate in Vietnam, this type of aluminum profile will not work against heat in the summer and lost warm in winter. Modern doors must use aluminum profiles with thermal bridges, although the price is higher than aluminum without insulation but it is effective.

Aluminum profiles are difficult to distinguish, the hardness varies depending on the chemical components such as copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, silicon, titanium help the weight of aluminum profiles light, durable. When selecting aluminum profiles, you should use aluminum profiles with insulation bridges to minimize thermal conductivity and note the chemical components that increase the hardness of the profile. For aluminum, paint is extremely important, electrostatic coating technology makes aluminum have various colors to suit different architectural styles.

With wooden profiles, to avoid cracking or shrinkage due to changes in humidity and weather, so the treatment of materials with drying technology will minimize the moisture absorption of wood, help the door not bent, warping, shrinkage, termites, discolorate. Because wood profiles are expensive, only luxury villas will be used.

Single glass is very fragile and unsafe so modern doors are used for tempered glass, safety glasses and heat resistant glass. To achieve soundproofing, it is advisable to use glass boxes manufactured on modern technological lines. In the space between the two layers of glass, there are desiccant particles that make the glass always dry. The glass box is injected with inert gas to reduce the sound and heat transmission.

There are different types of doors so the accessories are also different. As usual, to save money, people often choose sliding doors because this type of door has very simple accessories. However, because the two parallel sliding wings create a gap between the two wings, although the manufacturers have used a brush to block the gap, but still do not guarantee a high tightness and make insulation poor. In order not to affect the space in the room, people often use outward opening windows. The outward opening door can be used for both low-floor and high-floor buildings, but only opens 45° and be limited to glass cleaning, for outward opening windows of skyscrapers in storms, the door is easy to be destroyed and fall down dangerously. Therefore, to be safe, skyscrapers now only use sliding, inward opening or tilt and turn inward opening windows.

Gasket is an important part of the door, if bad gaskets will quickly aging, loss of elasticity, shortness of the podium after a short time of use. Therefore, you should choose double layer anti-aging gaskets

At present, there are many quality suppliers in the Vietnamese market. There are large factories but there are also many handicraft establishments. With modern doors that require tightness, sound insulation, high heat insulation, long-term use, it is necessary to have factories producing modern and advanced production lines. So when choosing the door, you should look at the prestigious brands having advanced production lines of machinery, good after-sales warranty. Talking to the modern door, people often refer to Eurowindow. This is a leading company in Vietnam in this field and is trusted by many users.
