As part of our Custom Requests function, EuroClime offers Dutch Split-Entry doors in an all-wood-only configuration. These doors are available in limitless designs but are only for those very few that still want a special connection to the past. While this type of door is still offered domestically, we find that the domestic units are still not energy efficient enough for those seeking to have a door that should last indefinitely. So, even though the appearance of our split-entry doors may look antique, their construction with the latest elements of thermal insulation and gap sealing gives them a modern relevance. These doors can be of an entirely new design or a historical reproduction of an existing door. We offer this historical reproduction service on a case-by-case basis only. Typically these doors are base off of the 68mm or 78mm profile but the 88mm can be used as well. As with all of our custom doors, the use of decorative glass and custom metal work is available and encouraged for these one-of-a-kind doors.
