LEADING door distributor JB Kind is this month launching a new Urban Industrial door range which brings their interpretation of this hot design trend available to every door buyer.
The Urban Industrial range features two new door styles, the “City” and “Metro” which combine the cool appeal of the urban landscape with the stylish lines of city modern living.
A variant on the Crittall-style doors previously only available in metal, the Urban Industrial style is now suitable for every home interior, whether it’s a new build project, renovation or refurb.
With their clean, visually arresting lines, geometric shapes and angular styling, the City and Metro doors have a high-quality painted finish. They are available in black and white with glazed versions too, which really celebrate the stylish design.
Simon Johnson, sales director of JB Kind, says: “Urban Industrial doors are all about celebrating the appeal of ‘industrial style’ interiors that have been inspired by the renovation of former factory and warehouse spaces into trendy living abodes. Think spacious interiors, minimalistic yet impactful décor, plenty of light, and smooth, linear sophistication.
“Here at JB Kind we have been working hard to create doors which capture this design aesthetic while offering the benefits that we always provide: affordability, practicality, sustainability and durability. Our City and Metro doors are simply stunning and would be a fabulous design addition to many an interior space. We look forward to working with our trusted network of builders’ merchants in bringing these fabulous doors to a wide range of properties.”
Solidly constructed with 9mm MDF panels, Urban Industrial doors are robust and thicker than similar alternatives on the market.
As far as practicalities are concerned, they can easily be fitted with regular handles and hinges, with no need to purchase expensive specialist ironmongery. They will fit easily into both new and existing door frames, with a 10mm trimming allowance on the bottom of the doors to accommodate different flooring levels.
Simon Johnson says: “The glazed versions of our City and Metro doors look wonderful and have lots of advantages. They are structurally robust because they have been made with individual panes of tempered safety glass, unlike a common cost saving construction practice where the profile bars are fixed on to a single pane of glass. Other practical benefits include the fact that the doors have been constructed with solid lock blocks, giving peace of mind when ironmongery is being fitted, as there is no worry about drilling straight into glass.”
The uber-contemporary City door features a fresh Art Deco style line design. In black or white, this is a door which oozes effortless refinement. The City glazed doors look simply stunning and the black version is available in both clear or tinted glass, giving two totally different looks.
The Metro door design features a funky, five-recessed panel ladder design, with the middle panel set in a sophisticated and slightly off-centre position to accommodate the handle. Whether it’s chosen in black or white, glazed or unglazed versions, this is a confident door design with striking contrast.
