The solid strength of wood for safe and comfortable living
Wood is an outstanding natural building material. Its warmth, countless uses and benefits ensure that it never goes out of fashion. At Pirnar, we treat this wonderful gift of nature with an exceptional flair for design and cutting-edge innovation. Hardwood, glazed timber doors are made to order from solid spruce, larch and oak hardwood. Nature ensures that each model is a unique work of art. Including yours.
Oak is a symbol of solidity, endurance and strength. This type of external hardwood doors is rich in sophisticated colour shades, from grey-white to brown, and can darken considerably. At Pirnar, we take advantage of this characteristic when applying glazes and oil finishes to achieve rich hues reminiscent of exotic hardwood species.
An exterior door in spruce retains the characteristic structure of the softwood, while we enrich it with glazes in four different light shades. They go very well with the natural tones of other fittings or light floor coverings. Spruce material combines wonderfully with any Pirnar entrance series, as it provides a base that can be enhanced in a classic or modern way.
Larch captivates with its dense structure and slightly reddish colour. The tree rings are sharply defined and older timber is distinguishingly different from young timber. At Pirnar, we apply glazes or oils to our larch models to achieve different types of structure and colour tone. This material also blends beautifully with modern materials and adds a touch of luxury to Pirnar's masterpieces.
Natural advantages of wooden external doors
Pirnar's durable softwood or hardwood exterior doors with or without panels offer a high level of comfort and functionality because they are made of high-quality, solid timbered material, which has many natural advantages. They add a unique feeling of authenticity and warmth to your home and adapt to a wide range of architectural styles. They blend perfectly with modern technological innovations and retain a touch of a mysterious past in a fairytale-like way. So you can dream up any unique timbered piece made to order.
Timber is a durable and strong material that offers reliable stability. Masterpieces made of timber doors offer exceptional structural solidity, surpassing even steel structures. This applies to both single-leaf and double-leaf wooden external doors of greater dimensions.

It also withstands many damaging influences.

An important advantage of exterior doors is their optimal sound and heat insulation. Solid wood in itself offers very good sound and heat insulation as it retains the cold air from outside and at the same time the warm air inside. At Pirnar, exterior doors are treated with a variety of additional insulating materials.
Hardwood external doors, glazing or not, are ecological and environmentally friendly because they have a minimal impact on the environment during manufacture and use, and this natural material is also an important renewable resource. Models made of timbered material are therefore a sustainable product that can be easily restored and maintained, especially external oak front doors.

How do you clean and care for a wooden front door?
It is a living material that needs regular and appropriate protection. Treat your entrance door with care otherwise, the surface or the colour will suffer damage. The frequency of care depends on the colour and location of the door.
We recommend cleaning and protecting the surfaces at least twice a year. Clean them with a gentle, damp cloth and non-abrasive hardwood cleaners. If the surface becomes damaged, it is important to repair the damaged area immediately otherwise, there is a risk of water penetrating any hardwood, freezing in winter and the coating peeling off.
External influences can cause damage to the colour. Clean the surface, which must be dry and dust-free before oiling, with a damp cloth and oil it again. Oil the surface, wait 5 minutes until the oil is absorbed and then wipe off the excess oil with a cloth in the direction of the tree rings. Seek the advice of a professional to repair major damage. Minor damage such as scratches and small cracks can be repaired with a fine brush and water-soluble acrylic-based paint. Just like any composite or french doors, the bets cleaning touch deserves your interior doors or glazed doors.

Opt for high-quality handles, locks, hinges, peepholes and self-closing devices, which must be particularly sturdy due to the weight of the door leaf. We recommend the use of a multi-point lock with various state-of-the-art locking systems. A cylindrical insert can also increase security, but only if it is installed in a high-quality front door. In older buildings, it is best to replace the old glazed external doors with security glazed stable doors that offer additional protection against burglary and are also available as Doorsets.
