The doors are perfect for modern living and in fact, not only do they deal with the door itself but with the glazing that surrounds it, albeit above the door or floor to ceiling beside the door. Oikos is an opening specialist with a huge flare for design underpinned by a flawless performance specification taking into account security, water and wind proofing, noise and thermal considerations.

In terms of finish, choice is wide ranging : they can be wall papered to blend with the room or covered in more exotic finishes such as leather. Additional finishes include lacquering, solid acrylics such as Corian, mirror or coated glass panels, stainless steel, powder coated aluminium and wood to name but a few.
