Aluminium Frames

Aluminium is by far the most popular metal for use in home improvements due to its natural properties. Unlike other metals such as steel, aluminium is exceptionally lightweight, which means it can be used in large, grand designs without being vulnerable to warping effects causing damage over time. In addition, aluminium can be designed with slick, slimline frames, lending a modern aesthetic without compromising the structural integrity of the model.

More and more properties across the UK are being enhanced with premium grade aluminium. With various stunning finishes available, aluminium can even be installed in flush profiles, creating a visual that can’t be beaten by other materials. This material is a suitable option for lifestyle doors, such as patio sliding doors or bifold doors, which can open up the space leading into your property’s beautiful garden.
