Contrary to the mistaken impression, the overlay panel, thanks to its frameless construction, does not increase safety at all. Both the hatch and overlay doors are just as safe. If the client wants to protect himself against the consequences of a burglary, a much better solution will be to invest in a professional alarm and insure his property.

Attachment panel – Is it worth to pay extra?

Despite the higher price, in our opinion, the overlay panel is above all more practical and aesthetic. First of all, it eliminates the disadvantages of doors made of insert panels.

Here are some reasons, why it is worth to pay more:

  • Attachment panel, provides higher comfort of usage. 
  • Cleaning of attachment doors is easier, surface of the doors is almost flat.
  • Attachment panel looks like a standard front doors in premium class.

Yo can offer PVC doors with single-sided attachment panel. From the outside, doors will have a one aesthetic overlay, and inside an infill panel.

Which PVC doors should you choose- summary

The most important advantage of doors made of plastic is the possibility to choose any size, in which doors are prepared on order. It depends on client’s decision, what type of panel should be chosen. Main differences- it’s a matter of appearance, ease of cleaning and price.

A double-sided attachment panel is about 16% (double-sided) and about 8% (single-sided) more expensive than an infill panel, but offers better comfort of use and looks better.
