Aluminium is a naturally strong material making it an ideal choice for entrance doors, back doors as well as bifold, French and sliding patio doors. Aluminium doors are manufactured with a strong, slim frame which gives a larger glass area and a truly modern finish. Because the frames have a high strength to weight ratio, they can support larger panes of glass to transform living spaces and flood rooms with natural light without compromising on durability.

Bifold doors are a series of framed glass panes that are connected with a hinge. The panes’ sit in an innovative tracking system that is set into the top and bottom of the door frame. To open the doors, the panes simply fold back on one another and slide along its tracking system. It should be a smooth, quiet, effortless operation.
