The weight of this door is approximately five times the weight of a standard up and over garage door so the lifting gear and operator needed to be something really substantial
The Oikos Synua Concrete is a unique concept in front door design. Designers Adriano and Rossi took inspiration from the materials used in the art and architecture of Venice. As a result, we have been given these these stunning door finishes. Now, you the customer can enjoy the bold statements and free expression allowed in the design of the these doors. This is typical of Oikos.
Oikos Synua Concrete Construction
The Oikos Synua Concrete has the same construction as other Oikos Synua front doors. Therefore, all options are available to you for security, insulation and size. This will include:
- Security Class 3 as standard with option of Class 4
- Noise transmission of acoustic level 38db
- Air permeability 2 with option of 4
- Wind resistance C4 with option of C5
You can see that in designing the Materia Venezia doors, the artists have used another relatively modern material, concrete. Additionally, in many cases, this has been combined with other ancient materials. This has produced an integrated product which is current and blends especially with contemporary architecture. As you can see here in the pictures, the concrete finish may be smooth or textured. Mosaics therefore blend beautifully into the surface and the variety of patterns are limitless. Furthermore, the mosaics used are mainly of coloured glass and allow you many themes of colour and pattern. The designers have used metal strips, brass and stainless steel, to make stunning designs. We have seen other metals specified and used. In addition, you can choose almost any material and have any pattern you wish. This is a truly bespoke door.
