Distinction Doors launched its Retail Cottage Door and the four glazed door designs of the Rustic Renown Collection last year and has been accepting plaudits for them ever since. Bethaney Larkman, Distinction Doors’ Marketing Manager, says: “Our Retail Cottage Door slab and the four doors in our Rustic Renown collection deliver beautiful heritage looks with the added reassurance of 21st century security because they are Secured By Design-compliant, which also means they meet the requirements of Document Q.”

Another standout feature of the doors lies in the colour. All five doors are available in six standard pre-pigmented colours, including popular favourites Distinction Anthracite Grey and Distinction Chartwell Green. Plus – in a first for the market – the glazing cassette of the doors in the Rustic Renown Collection are through colour for a seamless and sophisticated match for the rest of the door. Bespoke colour is also available thanks to Distinction’s state-of-the-art in-house paint plant. Bethaney comments: “Colour is big news at the moment and the sophistication of our colour offering more than meets customer expectations.”

The doors in the Rustic Renown Collection are the Rustic Renown, Rustic Renown Mid, Rustic Renown Top and Rustic Renown Diamond and all offer beautiful takes on the traditional cottage door with its small glazed area. Like the Retail Cottage Door slab, they all feature Distinction’s signature oak woodgrain effect finish, something that enhances the heritage looks even further.

The Retail Cottage Door slab and the Rustic Renown collection doors use Distinction’s range of three trimmable sizes for maximum flexibility and minimal waste. They are manufactured from Thermoset GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) and have stiles and rails composed of water-resistant polymer which is bonded to the skin and filled with an insulating core of 100% CFC-free polyurethane for exceptional weatherfastness.

There is no doubt that the Retail Cottage Door slab and the Rustic Renown collection are strong additions to the market and showcase Distinction’s reputation for doors that deliver on practical and beautiful detail. It’s no wonder it remains the UK’s number one supplier of entrance doors.
