Nothing Says Smart Like an Aluminium Front Door.
A front door is the first impression and gives a hint at what can be found within the house. If you want a smart, modern look nothing beats aluminium.
When choosing your new front door, aluminium doors will complement any home and has a number of benefits.
In recent years an aluminium door has become the go-to choice for architects who want the 'wow' factor when designing homes for their clients. Typically thought of as sleek with their chic battleship greys or deeper charcoal colours, aluminium doors actually have more diversity in choice and can suit a wide range of homes.
In the early 80s, many homes had aluminium sliding doors which were often draughty and difficult to slide but a lot has changed since then. In addition to super smooth sliding aluminium doors and bi-fold doors, there is a wide range of stunning aluminium front doors to choose from. Naturally, they are heavier in theory but modern developments in hinges and closing mechanisms means that as far as the user is concerned they may as well be light as air.
Aluminium doors are thought of as ultra-modern but even if you’re looking for a front door design that will suit a more traditional house, the diverse range of aluminium door styles means that you will find a style and colour that's a little bit different but will suit. You have the same flexibility as you do with Upvc and composite doors, in that the side panels of the aluminium door can be made-to-measure and you can have glass panels at the top of the door and glass panels to the side of the door, to let in additional light and frame your door with extra style.
You can choose your own colour of aluminium doors as well as the type of glass used. Other customisable features include the insulation level to suit your needs, since aluminium front doors can be manufactured with thermally broken frames. This manufacturing process includes a barrier in between the outside and inside of the door frame to stop conductive thermal energy loss, therefore providing greater insulation and thermal efficiency than other doors.
Designed to be as strong as steel.
Aluminium doors are made from a composite material. It is designed to be as strong as steel for security and stability whilst remaining light in weight. This enables doors made from aluminium to be made bigger and to feature a larger glass area than UPVC or wooden front doors. More glass allows maximum light to enter and, due to the strength of aluminium, security isn’t compromised. Balancing strength with weight, aluminium doors are tougher and more robust than other kinds of front doors and provide greater security and protection. Your door can also include security locking systems just like any other front door, firmly securing the door in place for extra peace of mind.
Apart from the wonderful aesthetic qualities that aluminium front doors possess, there are also several main advantages over front doors made from other materials. For example, UPVC can suffer from heat expansion, especially when used on south-facing elevations. Wood is also susceptible to expanding and contracting in line with the weather and variation of heat and damp. This affects alignment and operation but aluminium doesn’t experience these problems!
Aluminium doors feature a powder-coated finish so the colour is preserved for longer and isn’t prone fading and discolouration with constant exposure to the elements.
