Why Choose aluminium windows and doors


1. Versatility: Aluminium doors can be made in any style

Aluminium offers a solution for almost any project including contemporary and classic styles. At our Poole factory we manufacture bespoke windows and doors for both domestic and commercial buildings. Using aluminium enables us to make a variety of frame shapes and profiles, equally suitable for a single window, a large ‘glazed wall’ or glass sliding doors.

2. strength: Aluminium sliding doors are available in larger sizes

The strength and durability of aluminium as a material means we can manufacture extremely large sliding doors and windows with minimal frames. Over-sized doors and windows fill a house with light and expand its views, making a property a delight to inhabit.

3. Low maintenance: aluminium doors & windows need no painting

Aluminium window and door frames are highly weather-resistant, even in coastal areas exposed to more severe weather. They need just a wipe with a damp cloth to keep them looking as good as new.

4. Performance: aluminium bifolds for the highest thermal efficiency and sound reduction

Superior levels of thermal insulation are built into the aluminium frames of all our bifold doors, sliding doors and windows to create excellent energy efficiency. A choice of double or triple glazing further protects from heat and cold, while both frame and glass help to provide noise reduction from outside the home.

5. Colours: Aluminium frames in countless shades

Aluminium door frames can be powder-coated in one of hundreds of RAL colours to suit your home and style. Dual finishes mean a totally bespoke look for your new glazing.
