WOODEN FLUSH DOOR SHUTTERS

Flush Wall Door, also known as Flush door, is essentially the same as any other flush door but with a slight twist. The most noticeable difference between a normal flush and a Flush door is the absence of a frame around the door. This makes it slightly more difficult to install but makes installing it safer as well. Flush Wall Door is installed on a rolling track which rotates both open and shut. This allows water to flow out from the home easily without any risk of being squashed by walls of water.

Traditional Door

Traditional Flash Wall Door

There are a couple of things that set flush wall doors apart from other traditional doors. First of all the hinges are typically a single piece, rather than two. This allows for greater reliability and less chance of failure. Also these doors do not use internal hinges but use external hinges, so in the event of the door becoming damaged, the door can be opened and closed easily without fear of damaging the hinge. It is important that if the door itself becomes damaged that the hinges can still be operational, otherwise the door may need to be repaired.

Flash Wall Door

Flash Wall Door With No Frame

The other difference between normal flush wall doors and Flush wall doors is the lack of a frame around the door. Normally when you have a flush door installed, there is a frame made, which is made up of two frames. When these two frames meet they form a frame around the door which is locked. With Flush doors there is no frame and therefore there is no lock. Due to this, Flush doors are much easier to break into than regular flush doors, as there is nothing to stop a person from simply kicking it and causing it to fall.

Flush Safety Wall Door

The lack of a frame around the door also means that there are no safety issues associated with Flush doors. As mentioned before, flush wall doors are installed with concealed hinges, but this also means that there is not a frame surrounding the door, which means that it can be kicked in without causing any damage. Because of this, if a person is determined enough, a person can simply kick their way through a Flush door and into your home!

Features Of Flash Wall Door

Deadbolt Flush Wall Door

One of the most common security features found on Flush doors is a deadbolt. While it is hard to find in every house today, there are still a number of flush doors that have deadbolts installed. These are typically found on high end homes or commercial buildings. It is important to note, however, that having deadbolts on Flush doors does not mean you won’t have them installed at all. In fact, because many suppliers only sell products with deadbolts already installed, it makes it even easier for a thief to gain entry into your home. Therefore, it is important that you research the different security features that are available to ensure you choose one that best meets your needs.

Magnetic Flash Wall Door

A second common security feature is a magnetic lock. The magnetic lock is a great addition to Flush doors and is becoming more common for homeowners who are looking for added security. Magnetic locks are often installed using two magnets that are placed one on each side of the door. These magnets will latch onto the door when you open it, preventing someone from being able to walk through it.

Anti-Lift Mechanism Wall Door

A third common feature on flush wall doors is an anti-lift mechanism. The anti-lift mechanism will prevent someone from being able to push through the door once it has been latched closed. In most cases, these locks are placed between the center section of the door and the outer casing, meaning that if someone were to try to force open the door, the lock would prevent them from being able to do so.
