Doorways to homes and offices are one of the first things that make an impression on any visitor.  With so many different types of entrance doors, we thought we would shed some light on some of the options out there.

Nowadays, the possibilities are endless. Doors are not only an entryway into your space, but an introduction to the world in which you live or work.  

Pivot Doors

Available in Aluminium or Timber, pivot doors are a great option for any establishment.   Before it used to be aluminium or timber only, now you can have a combo of the two! The latest rage is having an aluminium frame, with a wooden door inserted. 

Pivot doors can be customised to suit just about any specification, as long as the building allows for it.  These doors are often used to enhance the beauty around them; a highlight for visitors who enter your home or office.

Adding a bit of glass, or a great big section of glass, can also help create a memorable first impression.  It doesn’t stop there, at Ambas, we also specialise in exotic timbers.  These can be used to manufacture doors such as Iroko, Teak, Kiaat and Oak.

Supawood doors are used internally only and not for outside due to the materials used. They are value for money alternatives to solid timber.  As they are predominantly manufactured in a medium-duty and not solid, thereby saving on materials and costs.

The supawood door is manufactured with an MDF board, a medium density fibreboard, which has excellent properties for a flat smooth finish in painting or spray painting. Can only be painted, not varnished.
