Being a leading steel door supplier in Edmonton, Ecoline provides a large selection of units in various styles, configurations, and colours. If you are in search of new doors, you need to be aware of the latest trends and designs. Check out this guide to learn more about steel door installation in Edmonton.

What Are Steel Doors?

The first thing to know about steel doors is that they aren’t made of solid steel as you might think but rather contain a thermal break inside. This allows us to guarantee reliability and durability – our units don’t include wood or parts that decompose when exposed to water or temperature variations. In addition, such materials better keep out unwanted heat and cold than wooden units.

    Why Choose Steel Doors For Your House in  Edmonton?

    Steel is a hard and strong material, providing superior durability and easy care. Being extra weather-resistant, it features a modern, clean look, requires little maintenance and enhances the attractiveness of the home – year after year.

    Here are the top benefits of steel doors you can take advantage of:

    • Strength and durability: a quality steel door can have many years of service life, successfully protecting a house from environmental impacts.
    • Low exploitation costs: a well-installed, high-quality steel door requires little to no maintenance.
    • Good heat and sound insulation: steel units perfectly protect the room from noise, resist frost or heat, and maintain a pleasant microclimate in the house.
    • Exertional reliability: steel doors provide a high level of burglary resistance.
    • Elegant design: with beautiful finishes and a variety of colours and decor, your doors can be designed to meet your overall house style ideally.

    Steel Exterior Doors by Configuration

    Discover our range of high-quality steel doors available in various configurations and choose what suits your home best:

    Single and Double Steel Doors

    A single steel door configuration is the standard and most common type of door in Edmonton homes. Most of us have such entry steel doors or ones leading to the garden area. Typically, this unit does not require major modifications to your rough opening and comes in a variety of shapes and designs to perfectly complement the look of your home.
    Steel double doors, resembling French doors, refer to two units paired together. They are suitable for wider openings and create a larger doorway. Stylish and elegant, exterior steel double doors highlight the unique architectural features of your home.

    Steel Doors With Sidelight and Steel Doors With Transom

    Traditional Steel Exterior Doors
    Looking for something eye-catching? Stunning exterior steel doors with sidelights can be the very thing. Sidelights are vertical glazed elements placed on the door sides. They are ideal for increasing the width of the door to fill a wide entrance. Fully insulated, our units with sidelights let in extra natural light while keeping your home safe.
    A steel door frame with a transom is a good way to fill the house with light. Transoms are a kind of windows placed above your entry doors letting extra light in. Adding a transom allows you to provide a stylish and unique look to your exterior.

    Panel Steel Doors

    You can customize your new steel entry doors by choosing the number of panels. A steel panel door is a top choice among homeowners. The name speaks for itself – the door is made not from a single piece of steel. It consists of panels from composite materials and includes a range of elements (like rails, stiles, and infill panels) within a frame. Steel doors with panels will look stunning in any Edmonton home and are a great way to liven up the overall design.

    Here are the most popular options to consider:

    2-panel steel door 3-panel steel door 4-panel steel door 5-panel steel door 6-panel steel door
    2 panel steel door 3 panel steel doors 4 panel steel doors 5 panel steel doors 6 panel steel doors

    Steel Doors with Glass

    Want to get a unique and more eye-catching look for your Edmonton home? We can equip exterior steel doors with a glass insert, which will additionally let some daylight in. Our exterior steel doors with glass are designed to allow as much light as possible through the viewing panel without sacrificing safety. In addition, stainless steel frames combined with high-quality sills and glass ensures outstanding performance.

    An elegant steel front door with glass will ultimately improve your home’s curb appeal.

    Steel Exterior Doors by Style: Modern vs. Traditional

    Consider your exterior door as part of a design statement, a key feature that not only allows you to get in and out but also needs to be attractive and stylish. The style of your door must be in harmony with the overall character of the house – you don’t want your door to look out of place. You need the right unit for the specific setting. In Ecoline, you can choose between traditional entry doors and modern steel doors to suit any architectural need.

    Style of entry doors

    Modern Steel Exterior Doors Traditional Steel Exterior Doors
    Modern Steel Exterior Doors Traditional Steel Exterior Doors
    Modern steel doors feature straight lines, sleek appearance, flat profiles and bold colour schemes. Such units are typically equipped with clean metal angular fittings. Contemporary steel doors are quite flexible in terms of design. So you can easily pick up a unit that will perfectly complement your home in modern style. Traditional steel doors are a perfect choice for cottage-style houses that retain a vintage aesthetic. Such units typically feature extravagant and decorative fittings, coloured glazing, dark colours, and ornate frames in order to highlight the classic appearance. If you’re inspired by the Victorian style, traditional steel doors will do a great job of retaining the sentiment of vintage design.

    Are you a fan of eclectic style? Get the charming mix of traditional and modern styles in your home. A modern steel front door on a traditional house and vice versa will create a unique aesthetic for the already one-of-a-kind home.

    Your home should be more than just a house. It should be unique, cozy and aesthetically pleasing – and it all starts with the door. With a wide range of customization options, we can create the door of your dreams.

    Choose among Delta Frosted, Chinchilla, Pinhead, Acid Etched, Silvet options and increase your level of privacy.
