In such a situation, unusual stylized numbers made of stainless steel or even plastic are suitable, however, plastic is not suitable for outdoor space: its heat resistance is not at the highest level.

It is not recommended to place numbers made of plastic or wood on metal doors: in this situation, the compatibility of materials is very important. On such doors, figures of a square, slightly rough shape look good - with their help, the effect of absolute reliability and closeness of the apartment is achieved.
