The Allure of Aluminium Doors


Why aluminium is fast becoming the #1 choice for luxury doors and windows

Within our many years of working in the industry, we have always kept a close eye on the both the latest developments in product design, and the changing trends in what our customers are looking for. One of the most significant has been a huge growth in the popularity of luxury aluminium doors and windows.

In recent years, we have seen huge leaps in the innovative engineering, design and production of aluminium doors and windows. It is not difficult to see how it has fast become the material of choice for discerning customers when choosing doors and windows for their house, conservatory or extension.

Indeed, we are delighted to be supplying the most popular bi-fold doors currently available – the Visofold 1000 bi-fold doors from Smart Systems.

So why have aluminium doors become so popular?


Excellent heat management performance. One of the most significant developments in product innovation has been in the thermal efficiency of aluminium doors. State-of-the-art design and engineering has made today’s aluminium doors extremely energy efficient; their insulation performance matching or exceeding uPVC doors. Furthermore, the Visofold 1000 doors feature extremely energy efficient StayCool solar-control glazing. With a “U value” of 1.0, they offer superb insulation yet are also designed to reflect 57% solar heat and 35% glare to ensure you and your family are comfortable during the summer months.

Strong but slim door frames. Aluminium is inherently strong yet light in weight. This allows manufacturers to make beautiful doors with very slim profiles and sleek sight lines. These slimline designs increase the feeling of airy spaciousness and brightness in your rooms, and are extremely light and easy to use.

Durability. Aluminium doors require very little maintenance to keep them looking and working at their best. They easily stand up to the worst of British weather, year in year out, without warping or rotting.

Safe and secure. The sturdy aluminium frames are fitted with fully-concealed tamper-proof shoot bolt locking and / or multi-point hook bolt systems, giving homeowners total peace of mind.

Perfectly matching your interior and exterior design. One of the most unique features of aluminium bi-fold doors is that we can offer them to you in over 200 (RAL) colour options and 30 textured paint finishes. We also offer dual-colour option, allowing you to make your new doors coordinate perfectly with the decor of both your room and the exterior of your home.
