Aluminium Doors – Double and Triple Glazed
Aluminium is the strongest and most durable material, easy to clean and maintain. Quality double and triple glazed aluminium doors are therefore the most expensive choice in the door market. Aluminium doors are often used for commercial properties and retail facilities. Nevertheless, they are also extremely well suited for residential properties. High-end aluminium doors can be built in large sizes in a variety of shapes, types and configurations. Precision manufactured aluminium (extrusion) profiles are anodised, then powder-coated to your liking and design approach in every colour (pantone or RAL). High quality aluminium door frames provide good properties; their acoustic and thermal properties however, are not quite comparable to uPVC and timber door framing. SCS overseas suppliers have almost closed this small gap by implementation of the multi-air chamber and thermally broken framing systems.
Double and triple glazed aluminium doors are especially the right choice for large glazing units or glass fronts in your home or business. Due to the strength and durability of the material, your options are indefinite.
In the special configuration of flush-fitted glazing in the frame, the glass pane is suspended mechanically but not visibly by point locking in the rebate. This creates the smooth and attractive appearance many architects integrate in the design of high-end residential and commercial buildings.
The rather high price of aluminium products is a result of increasing raw material prices due to higher demand on international markets. Therefore, double and triple glazed aluminium doors are more expensive than uPVC and timber doors.
Aluminium doors differentiate by their frame thickness, quality and stability as well as thermal and acoustic properties. This means the main factor is thickness of the external frame as well as the door leaf/ panel, which holds the glass unit. Broadly speaking, increased thickness of framing and glazing panel will improve thermal properties and all other properties above. High quality aluminium doors come in a variety of frame thicknesses of up to 117 mm, which SCS can supply if required.
The imported high quality product range of SCS provides 3 major options for frame thickness:
CLASSIC with 70 mm frames, VISION with 75 mm frames and PREMIUM with 85 mm frames
Finishes and Surfaces
SCS supplies aluminium doors in a variety of finishes and surfaces and in every possible colour (pantone and RAL). The types of finishes for the aluminium profiles are almost indefinite. Possible finishes are anodised + powder-coated finish, special coating and decor. The finishes can be applied single-sided or double-sided, on the frame only or frame and sash. That way each door can be individually adapted to the interior and exterior finish of your property. Below, you can find a variety, which is available in every configuration. More colour choices are available upon request, depending on frame thickness and type.
