Matching the size of the door to the overhead glass window is a clever design feature

This particular project showcases one of our new designs the WAV - launched late last year paired with handles by Philip Watts Design in a wave design.

The door is pretty special due to it's size - 1.5m wide x 2.2m high and because it is operated using Finger Print Entry and a motorised lock.  We particularly like the glass above the door and the stark and contemporary entrance with the door taking centre stage.

Finger Print entry allows up to 100 finger prints to be entered and can be controlled by your phone allowing you to let someone in and also to bar them! It is also connected to the motorised locking which is a fail safe or fail secure system - if there is a fire or electric shortage the lock either automatically opens or locks the door.
