If you’re looking for a charming way to let natural light and fresh air into your home without leaving the door completely open, stable doors are a classic solution.
A stable door is split into two sections — upper and lower — that can be opened independently. They’re an ideal option for a family, allowing you to open the upper half to ventilate your home without letting small children or pets out into the garden.
This classic country cottage style door is a unique way to bring light and air into your home, particularly when space and security are primary concerns. Opt for a timber-style woodgrain stable door for country-style appeal or introduce a pop of heritage or modern colour to give your stable door a contemporary feel.
Our stable doors are a wonderful choice when you want to add real character, especially when you don’t have the space for French doors or sliding patio doors. By controlling the way you open your door you can enjoy the beauty of your garden and a cool breeze on a warm day with the peace of mind that your home remains secure.
Our stable doors combine beauty and practicality with modern high security features. Many insurance companies regard this type of door as a safe and secure choice as our Yale locks use aunty-pick, anti-snap, anti-drill, aunty-bump and anti-extraction technology to keep your home and loved ones protected.

Are stable doors secure?
With its split opening, a stable door could seem less secure than a conventional one piece door. But don’t be fooled, our modern stable doors are fitted with a high quality locking system that ensures they’re as secure as a standard door.
In fact, you could even opt for two separate locks on each part of the door which are then bolted together for extra security. Talk to our experts and they’ll be able to advise you on the best choice for your home.
Can you get PVCu stable doors?
Yes you can, and they can look just as beautiful as a traditional timber stable door. Our range of woodgrain finishes are almost indistinguishable from the real thing but have all the additional benefits of uPVC including great thermal performance.
Thanks to our bespoke manufacturing solutions your stable doors can be manufactured to your specific colour, finish and dimensions. Get in touch with us today to chat about our range of designs and materials for stable doors.
How does a stable door work?
Originally designed for horse stables, this type of door was designed with an independently opening top and bottom to make it easy to feed the horses and keep them well ventilated without them being able to escape.
This feature makes stable doors ideal for any home where you want to let light and air flood in without having the door completely open. Your professional installer will make sure you know exactly how your door opens and locks before leaving.
Why have a stable door?
Stable doors aren’t just for farmyards and horses. In fact they’re gaining in popularity in urban homes thanks to their combination of charm, security and practicality.
You can keep your home well ventilated without worrying that leaves and other debris will blow in. Lock the bottom half of the door independently to make sure that young children and pets can’t get out without supervision and control who you answer the door to — a stable door will prevent an unwanted visitor getting their foot in the door. To find out how a versatile stable door can work for your home, contact us today.
Do stable doors open in or out?
Thanks to our bespoke manufacturing methods at our South West factory, your Otter Windows stable door can open inwards or outwards as you choose. Remember that you’ll need to secure the top section, so only choose an inward opening door if you have the space.
Outward opening stable doors are more common as they’re easier to pin back but make sure they’re not obscuring a window. Ultimately, the right choice will depend on what works for you and suits the space available.
Can you get stable doors with windows?
You certainly can, and a half glazed stable door is a great way to let light into your home even when the door’s closed because of poor weather. Even better, you won’t have to sacrifice security as our exterior doors are fitted with toughened glass.
You’re not limited to plain glazing either, so why not take a look at our range of decorative glass colours and designs to really personalise your door. You can try out your designs online or download our brochure for more home inspiration.
