Aluminium Doors – Domestic
Aluminium is now very well established for commercial double glazing – shop fronts, foyers and entrance doors. It is now also a popular choice for domestic windows and doors. There are a number of reasons why aluminium doors are increasing in popularity.
Aluminium Doors – Strong & Secure
Aluminium doors have very good thermal properties and are tough, secure, resilient and weather resistant. Aluminium door frames have high structural strength, which enables it to be incorporated into unusual door and entrance designs.
In terms of security, aluminium doors really come into their own during winter. In freezing conditions, some UPVC doors can become quite brittle and have been known to be a target for attack. Aluminium doors suffer no such weakness.
Aluminium Doors – Design Flexibility
Aluminium’s greater strength enables aluminium doors and door frames to be slimmer than those used for UPVC doors. This is appreciated by designers, where aluminium’s slim line door profile allows a wider range of designs to be used. Aluminium doors tend to be more aesthetically pleasing due to their slimmer, less obtrusive design.
Also, because aluminium can be cut to produce custom shapes, aluminium doors and double glazing frames are much more versatile and can be used to create unusual, bespoke designs.
Aluminium Doors – Coatings & Colours
Aluminium doors and frames can use the whole range of RAL and BS colours – please see the link to the RAL chart. You can even specify dual colours, to give you contrasting colours inside and outside your home, blending with both the internal and external colour scheme for your house.
Aluminium Doors – Commercial
Aluminium doors are popular for commercial use for a number of reasons:
- Given its high strength, aluminium doors are very robust and are designed for heavy and frequent use such as school, office or shop entrances.
- Because of aluminium’s high strength, aluminium doors and profiles are slimmer and less obtrusive than UPVC.
- Aluminium commercial doors are available as a self closing door option, with a ‘hold open’ facility. Concealed closers restrain the door opening action and then automatically close the door at a pre-set speed.
- Aluminium doors are available with an anti-finger trap device. This is a very important feature for doors for hospitals, schools and shops. It is one of the prime attractions of aluminium doors for commercial use.
