Comparing Reynaers Sliding Doors to Smarts and AluK

by | Aug 24, 2016 | Resource Centre

The residential aluminium market is buoyant and healthy. Bifolding doors and sliding doors are enjoying continued growth as homeowners and the home improvement industry benefits from the advantages of large span doors.

A byproduct from the popularity of aluminium is also a growing demand for luxury sliding doors.

Comparing the Reynaers CP130, AluK BSC70 and Smarts Visoglide sliding doors.

There are many quality aluminium sliding doors on the market. As an installer, you will know that many trade supply sliding doors on the market meet the required industry standards for quality of materials, security and weather performance standards as well as the quality of paint finish. There is no ‘bad’ product on the market.
AluK BSF70 sliding doors and Smarts Visoglide sliding doors are high-quality products offering consistent sight lines, high performance and versatility. However, when it comes to the requirement for a high end or luxury sliding door, an architect, door installer or designer will often look at alternative brands and systems.
As good as these well known and good selling doors are by Aluk and Smarts, there are sliding doors such as the Reynaers CP130 sliding door that professional aluminium manufacturers, specifiers and installers regard as superior.

What defines a luxury aluminium sliding door?

There are several areas where a sliding door is a better door such as when we compare Reynaers sliding doors to Smarts and AluK.

Product design and engineering.

It is rare for a quality sliding door to fall apart, to fail, to offer a bad user experience. Modern design, fabrication procedures and quality of components means doors are built to last. Reynaers sliding doors are a very high quality sliding door. AluK and Smarts sliding doors are also well made.

Reynaers are one systems company that like to go the extra mile. Their doors offer superior engineering at the core of the product.
