Why steel doors frames are better than wooden door frames 

We live in a time in which our major concern is the security of our homes and businesses and the safety of our families. Home invasions, robberies, and other property-related offences are on the peak, and executing possible changes to our homes has become more essential than a luxury. One of the first changes to appear on the list when you are focusing on enhancing the security features is your door frame. 

While wooden door frames have been the standard for many generations, they can become weakened and debilitated over time, allowing strangers an easy approach to our homes. Preferring door locks is ineffective when your door frames are so debilitated they will not withstand an attack. When this is the situation, replacement of door frames has become urgent, and there is no better alternative than a steel door frame. 

One of the basic functions of an entry door is to be the point at which someone can approach a structure. And well that’s indeed true, there are also some other purposes that it holds. One of these is to give the structure greater or lesser degrees of energy efficiency depending on the door’s design. 

Steel doors offer an excellent option for exaggerating the amount of energy that is holding onto your home. It has been revealed that steel offers five times higher insulating factor than purely wooden doors – that’s a significant amount of difference. 

There are a few unique features that lead towards the awesome energy efficiency that steel doors have. The first is that each steel entry door is pervaded with high-quality insulated foam. This is applicable in a very diligent and precise process that ensures maximal outcomes. 

let’s highlight a few important points to keep in mind while you are focusing to make your home more secure. Even though steel door frames are costlier than wood, in the long run, they will become a great investment, as their longevity is much higher than that of wood. Before a steel door frame even starts showing signs of weakening, you would have been changed wood door frames at least twice. On

the other hand, there is also the concern of aesthetics, and these days metal door frames can be given complete wood looks so many people would love to see them. Maintenance is also uncomplicated and less expensive for steel door frames, as they only need a coat of paint to appear good for many years. 

Keeping cost-effectiveness apart, the decision of metal door frames vs wood door frames becomes very simple once you realize how difficult it would have been to break down a door that has a metal frame. Locks functions are more effective, and 

you will acquire a calm mind knowing that your family will be safe even when you are not in the home. 

Steel Door vs. Wooden Door 

Your exterior doors are fundamental to the function and design of your home. More than just a simple way to enter and exit a building, a door has style and provides security. But not all doors are equally created. The quality of both the material and build governs the aesthetics, durability, and function of a door. Which material serves the best bang for your buck? Let’s highlight which door is best to prefer 

Steel Doors 

For most homeowners, steel doors are the most convenient choice. They’re elegant and serve the best in security. They’re also easily available in the market, making it uncomplicated to replace a door when needed. Metal doors are remarkably durable. Dings and scratches can be easily replaced, and repainting old doors can give them an attractive new look. Additionally, steel doors are much more protected from 

cracking and warping than wood doors. Overall, steel doors are an incredible investment for the average homeowner. Steel can be endlessly recycled which makes it an environmentally friendly material. When the world is focused on saying no to cutting trees, steel becomes a material of choice. 

Wooden Doors 

Despite the versatility of steel doors, some homes just wouldn’t appear the same without wood doors. Historic homes, for example, are in the need to maintain a genuine look. Wood doors are the most preferable option in mid-grade to high-grade homes because of their classic beauty. Solid wood doors are well built and most expensive. When it comes to choosing a wooden door, the thicker the panel, the better strength, and durability it gives. Traditional wood doors come in

cherry, fir, mahogany, maple, oak, pine, and walnut. Homeowners should know that wooden doors are not maintenance-free. Homeowners have to maintain them regularly to safeguard them against weather damage such as warping or decay. 


Traditionally we use wooden frames for doors and windows in India, but you have seen clearly how steel frames are better than wooden frames in the long run. That’s why APL Apollo has come up with Apollo Chaukhat, India’s first closed steel door and window frames. They are made of quality steel and can be installed easily. Apollo Chaukats come in two models – modular and readymade. You can rest assured about the strength, durability and quality with no compromise on aesthetics. Apollo Chaukhat is made with Direct Forming Technology and is available in customized sizes. By choosing Apollo Chaukhat you will be reducing the carbon footprint and saving trees.

APL Apollo helped to set up an Oxygen Plant in just 15 days- How did they do it?

The Direct Forming Technology (DFT) used by APL Apollo helps it to deliver better value to customers faster and more efficiently. This has become an established fact if we take several recent projects into consideration.

Take the example of the 15000 sq feet Oxygen Plant in Siraspur set up by the Delhi Government with Apollo Column steel tubes. This was completed in an ambitious 15 days’ time, thanks to APL Apollo structural steel tubes. APL columns offer faster construction, optimised structure cost, minimal wastage and superior quality while remaining environmentally friendly. The project was completed under the supervision of PWD engineers. Since this project had an ambitious turnaround time, it had to be well planned and executed with precision.

The project was divided into four clear stages –

Excavation and foundation work carried out by civil contractor

Once PWD finalized the design the order was placed on Day 1. The next day saw the beginning of the excavation of the site. On the fifth day, foundation casting began and was completed in two days.

Tubes manufactured by APL Apollo

Once the order was received from PWD, APL Apollo started manufacturing the tubes cut to length at its Raipur Plant and started despatching on the fourth day.

Fabrication of structural steel tubes at the workshop

While the foundation work was being managed at the site, the structural parts were being fabricated in the workshop. It took around 5 days for the fabrication and finishing of the fabrication. Two days were used for sandblasting and paintwork on the structural parts.

Assembly and erection of fabricated structure at the site

The despatch of the fabricated structural tubes were completed on the eleventh day by which point the site was ready for the erection of the fabricated structure. The assembly and erection of the entire structure took only three days.

On Day 15 the finished shed was handed over to PWD and they were extremely satisfied with the outcome. The entire project was completed in 15 days with the consumption of 20% less steel and incurring a 10% lower project cost. There was no welding done onsite. The lower weight of the columns resulted in considerable cost savings while it added extreme sturdiness to the structure.

This project demonstrated that the structural steel tubes are best suited for steel buildings in terms of Speed, Quality, Cost Savings and Environment Safety. The structure looks aesthetically better compared to conventional structural products.

APL Apollo Tubes supplied tubular sections of 400x200mm with 12mm thickness for this project. This aided the designer to optimize the building design that complied with the stipulated safety standards. The sections were supplied in cut to length sizes to ensure minimum wastage for the fabricator. It helped in faster processing of steel tubes and on-time completion of the project. 

APL Apollo used Direct Forming Technology and produced the heavy sections using the Italian rolling mills which are capable of producing square and rectangular tube sections directly. This provides a sharper edge to the tubes with less weight for the same load-bearing capacity. APL Apollo adds value to every engineering project with its latest technology
