Insensation FRAMELESS doors come in 3 versions:
Frameless Swing
Frameless Pocket
Frameless Slide
The Frameless Swing door is a 2’’ leaf, significantly thicker, heavier, acoustically superior to thin American doors. The high-end 3D concealed hinges, magnetic lockcases (mortises), and acoustic gaskets are pre-installed in the door leaf and pre-hung in the door frame prior to delivery.
Insensation's frameless door is a universal product - one identical solution for push-in or pull-out and co-planarity with either wall. It works with all wall widths and types.
Insensation systems are designed by engineers, ensuring you tough, time-proven quality. The frameless swing doors are available for both 1/2’’ and 5/8’’ sheetrock. All elements of the door can be customized in finish (color): leaf, frame, lockcase, hinges, gaskets.
A large range of architectural levers and locks is available from our selection and we mill the door leafs for free for any hardware chosen from our range.
We do not stock standard doors. All our doors are custom made for the project you are building.
Technical Specs
Insensation's CO-PLANAR door line has handcrafted oak leafs and jambs, and was designed for minimalist architecture.
The leafs are co-planar with the outside wall in both push-in and pull-out versions.
State-of-the art concealed 3D hinges as well as magnetic lockcases and clean-line design classify this door as a minimalistic work of art. The door leafs are available in 10 exclusive oak finishes.
Matching baseboard is available for our co-planar doors.
Technical Specs
Insensation's CLASSIC doors offer an interesting price-value option for large scale projects with many design options.
The doors are available with lacquer as well as wood veneer options, visible or concealed hinges, and magnetic or traditional mechanical lock cases. In addition, all doors can be fitted with a variety of glass window options.
Technical Specs
Our metal interior doors are made of glass and slender corrosion-free aluminum profiles. These profiles are much slimmer than traditional steel door profiles.
The profiles were developed in-house and have a radius of only half a millimeter. The front view of our profiles is only 30 mm. Our profiles have been designed symmetrically with attention to detail, so that both sides of the door are equal. This creates a sleek and calm appearance.
Our doors are partitions are maintenance-free and made to measure.
The design elements are available as:
Glass Pivot Doors
Glass Hinged Doors
Glass Folding Doors
Glass Sliding Doors
Fixed Wall Panels
Shower Enclosures
Single, Double, Fixed and Door combinations
The safety glass is either laminated or tempered, according to the project requirements, and comes in transparent, bronzed, grey, green or matt hues.
The pivot doors come standard with soft-close and auto stop at 90°. The sliding doors are available with an optional soft-close.

Technical Specs
stairplane™ staircases are the result of 25 years of research and development, manufacturing experience using anodized aluminum and experience in thousands of staircase projects.
The unique composition in the aluminum allows us to achieve strengths equal to steel, but with a fraction of the weight, making installation much easier. Aluminum also is a more refined metal than steel and does not give a dated look with time as most steel staircases.
Some of our staircase designs were developed over 20 years ago, and like good classic design (think Eames chair), are still relevant today due to their discrete, timeless aesthetic.
You can find stairplane staircases in every European country, as well as across the USA. We have technical solutions for practically every architectural wish and challenge, ask us.
A staircase project with Insensation means we do the entire engineering of the staircase for you, saving you large sums of money. We deliver 2D and 3D drawings.
Technical Specs
Insensation offers five kinds of sleek and minimal design railings for our staircases, landings, walkways and horizontal railings.
We also manufacture handrails in anodized aluminum and stainless steel.
We generally only deliver railings together with a staircase. If you just need a piece of railing, please contact a local metalworker.
