Seven reasons to install an Apeer Silka Door

Our designers here at Collingtons are proud to introduce the new sleek and effortlessly luxurious Silka Collection from Apeer. This door makes a stylish statement, and adds character to your home. Our doorways say a lot about our homes, as they are the first thing visitors see when arriving. Gone are the days of dilapidated, over-worn front doors. Now we can welcome an era of class and grace with this amazing range.

There are many reasons to install an Apeer Silka Door, so here are seven of them to get you started.



1. The Signature ‘Thwump’


Most homeowners may not think about what their door sounds like when it is opened or closed. But we have. The solid ‘thwump’ when you close an Apeer door sounds like no other. It’s a sign of its superiority thanks to the reinforced frame and airtight seals. It symbolises a beautifully designed home, as well as a safer home for the whole family to enjoy.


2. Unique colours


Welcoming your home into the modern era is the unique colour selection from this Silka range. Black and anthracite grey are available for exterior choices. This minimalist look is eye catching and quite unlike more traditional doorways. You can also choose from white and light grey for internal colours, to keep the space inside bright and open.



3. 100% style


Nothing quite says ‘welcome to our home’ like the Silka Door does. When guests arrive, they know they will be entering a home that’s expertly designed and professionally decorated. 100% style is what everyone wants when choosing that ultimate entryway; it sets the tone for the whole house, both on the inside and the outside. The all-glass glazing trim is a stand-out feature, which gives a cool, flush finish to this sleek door design.


4. Customisable


The Apeer Silka Door is fully customisable, thanks to over a dozen styles to choose from. You can pick everything from handles to hinges, not to mention colour choice, both interior and exterior. Sizes can also be changed, to be suitable for wheelchair use, so no matter what you need, everyone feels welcome. Silka doors also feature a waist-height locking system and handle options to improve accessibility based on customer needs.



5. Virtually airtight


Our double sealed rebate is virtually airtight, creating a secondary seal, so you needn’t worry about those energy bills! Your home is sure to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer.


6. Extra insulation


Along with our 70mm super-strong, high-insulating polyurethane core, our glass elements are triple glazed for extra insulation. We can even gas fill them for improved thermal performance. This additional touch means we ensure an energy-efficient home for everyone.



7. Robust construction and Police Approved


Every Apeer door is strong from the core thanks to an expanded mesh that is inserted into the super-strong, high-density polyurethane core. If this wasn’t enough, there is an extremely strong vertical steel bar running along the centre. Thanks to this, our Silka Apeer Doors far exceed all Police-approved security standards. All of our Apeer doors also come with a multi-point locking system, so you and your family can rest easy whether you're tucked up at home or away for the night.
