poor imitation and not give you the high-end aesthetics that these products deliver. But with so many options on the market, how can you be sure you’re investing in good quality aluminium windows and doors?

In this article, we’ll explore what to look for so you can select with confidence.

Superior aesthetics


You’re probably considering aluminium windows and doors because of their appearance. There’s no doubt that aluminium windows and doors offer a distinctive, streamlined aesthetics. By design, aluminium profiles are slimmer than say PVC-U or timber, which gives a higher ratio of glass to frame. Ideal for modern solutions, but equally suitable on older or heritage style properties too.

Choice of products

You can tell good quality aluminium windows and doors by the attention to detail. It’s the little things that will create the designer look you’re after.

Let’s take our Evoke aluminium windows and doors as an example.


Our Evoke aluminium windows – are available in a choice of flush or fully flushed finishes. Simply explained, when this particular style of window is closed, it sits flush within the frame and creates a smooth, flat surface on the outside without any overlap.  And with our Evoke fully flushed windows, you can extend this flush finish to the internal frame too.

When it comes to aluminium doors our Evoke Lift and Slide patio door is a popular choice with its Lift and Slide technology. ‘Lift’ simply means that there is a built-in system which takes some of the weight when opening the panes. This allows the panes to ‘slide’ smoothly and easily about their tracks. You can have a sliding door with larger panes and sash widths up to 3 metres wide; ideal for applications where a wide opening is desirable.

If you are looking to create a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors then our Evoke aluminium bifold doors are the answer.  By design, our Evoke aluminium bifolding doors have ultra-slim sashes which pack a real visual punch. And because there’s thermal break technology (creating a thermal barrier against heat loss by introducing a low conductive material to the system makeup) our Evoke aluminium bifold doors insulates your home, ensuring its comfortable all year round.
