Double & Triple Glazed Timber + Aluminium Doors
Double & Triple Glazed Timber + Aluminium Doors
Timber + Aluminium combination doors provide an alternative solution to traditional timber doors. The addition of an external aluminium cladding to the timber frame improves durability and weather resistance of the door (reduce impact from weather and UV exposure). This results in a reduction in the necessary maintenance and care of a standard timber door (frequent re-painting or nourishment of the surface), whilst still providing the interior of the building with the classic and high-end look of timber. An aluminium profile is mounted onto the exterior surface of the door frame and sash. Timber + Aluminium doors come in a number of timber species and finishes. The doors can be built in large sizes and a number of shapes and configurations.Get a Quote Download Brochure
Timber + Aluminium doors are the climax of modern door technology. Timber + Aluminium doors combines the strength, weather resistance, low maintenance and durability of aluminium externally with the classy, high-end and stylish appearance of timber internally.
Timber + Aluminium composite doors are manufactured by mounting external aluminium cladding to an 80 mm thick solid timber frame. This external aluminium cladding adds strength to the door and protects the timber surface from weather and UV-impact increasing the longevity of the door and reducing maintenance requirement (periodic re-paint and nourishment of the surface not required).
Timber + Aluminium doors are available in both double and triple glazing for superior thermal and acoustic performance. These doors can also be made in very large sizes and spans due to their structural stability, making this a very attractive option for commercial buildings and high-end residential design.
Timber + aluminium doors are available in a number of timber species. To see the full range of timber species, please refer to the Timber Doors page. The timber profile is completely finished in the factory to your choice of stain or paint colour. The timber profiles are machine painted prior to installation of aluminium, glazing or gaskets, to ensure a high quality and even finish, with all surfaces treated and protected. The timber stain types and colour options can be assessed on the downloads tab.
The type of glazing selected for a door can influence the daylight transmission, thermal properties, sound insulation, safety, privacy and security of the whole window unit. It is essential that the glazing type is specified carefully for each project to ensure the end product provides a healthy, comfortable, temperature stable and quiet environment.
To achieve this balance, modern glazing technology has advanced to provide a wide variety of glass types and coatings. Double and triple glazed doors can use these glass types in combination in order to achieve the desired outcome. Double glazing combines two layers of glass, with an insulated spacer in order to increase the thermal insulation of a door. Triple glazing combines 3 layers of glass with two insulated spacers in order to achieve greater thermal insulation.
SCS supplies double and triple glazed doors in a wide variety of shapes and configurations. The shape of the door and opening type can influence the thermal and acoustic insulation, security, safety and structural strength of the door.
Lift & Slide Door
European alternative to a standard sliding door. The moveable panel is lifted by the mechanism when operated. When closed the movable panel is dropped into the track, creating compression on the seals. This system is designed for increased thermal, acoustic and security performance. The hardware mechanism of the Lift & Slide door allows these doors to be made to extremely large spans in a 2-panel configuration, whilst still allowing smooth and easy operation.
Tilt & Slide Door
Another popular European style opening, where the openable section tilts inwards at the top for ventilation and slides past the fixed panel. When closed the openable section pushes into the seals of the frame, increasing compression on the seals and reducing air penetration.
Single & Double Doors
Standard side hinged doors can be made in inwards or outwards openings. In some materials, these doors can be made with a tilt & turn function in order to provide secure ventilation. Double door openings are commonly used for larger areas, often used as an entry to a terrace, veranda or garden.
Bi-fold doors are folding doors that were originally used as interior doors and furniture doors. Nowadays, they are used as room dividers, especially for large entertainment areas, such as terraces, verandas and balconies. Bi-fold doors are a popular and attractive feature for both high-end residential projects and commercial buildings.
The door security and overall appearance can be greatly influenced by the type and style of hardware used. Mounting a high quality, well finished handle to a door can completely change the design.
SCS supplies a range of handles for all our door systems in standard colours; silver, white, black, brown and bronze.
Flyscreens are an important component of all residential and commercial properties. They are mainly used as a barrier against insects, however with changing technology they can fulfill many other purposes besides preventing the intrusion of insects. Different materials types and configurations can be used for insect prevention (standard flywire), bush fire protection (metal mesh) and security (steel mesh and diamond grill screens).
For door installations, often a custom screen solution is required as every installation is different. SCS has a range of specialised screen contractors to engage, in order to supply a seamlessly integrated and practical screen solution.
There are multiple screen types available to suit door systems. The type of door, location and install conditions will influence the screening option available. The most common types of screens available for doors are hinged security doors (single and double), sliding screen doors (track system) and retractable screen doors.
Glazing bars and colonial bars are an important decorative door feature in many architectural designs. SCS supplies a range of products with glazing bars, colonial bars and glazing separators to suit your needs, whether you are creating a Hampton style home, preserving the character of a Federation style home, matching heritage overlay or enhancing an architectural element.
Glazing bar products are applicable to single, double and triple glazed doors. Glazing and colonial bars are available in all materials types (uPVC, timber, aluminium etc.) and in a variety of profiles and styles to suit your project requirements (e.g. heritage, modern etc.).
