Aluminium doors on a patio

A Beginner’s Guide to the Different Styles of Aluminium Doors

There’s never been a better time to renovate your property. Whether you’re a homeowner in search of something stylish to revamp your home or a business owner who’s looking for something sleek and secure, you have a sizeable collection to choose from. That being said, most modern renovations have one thing in common: Aluminium doors.

Aluminium doors have gained a lot of popularity in recent years. And it’s easy to see why. They’re durable, secure, and easy on the eye. But although aluminium products share a few common traits, that doesn’t mean they’re all the same. If aluminium doors are going to be part of your next building project, it’s important to know what your options are before you commit to a particular style. There are three main varieties of aluminium doors; namely sliding doors, sliding folding doors, and hinged doors. Let’s explore your options in detail, so you can make an informed decision.

Aluminium Sliding Doors

Commonly referred to as patio doors, sliding doors are installed in a manner that allows them to extend over large entrances. This makes them equally suitable for home installations, as well as office fittings. If the space you’re planning to renovate has a wide entrance, sliding doors should be your first choice. The same goes for property owners who are looking to maximise their view and give their space an airy feel.

Aluminium Sliding Folding Doors

Also known as concertina doors, sliding folding doors are ideal for lounges, balcony doors, or a patio with a view of a lovely garden or sparkling pool. As for commercial applications, sliding folding doors are the prime choice for shared spaces that require exceptionally wide entrances, i.e., conference rooms. These doors are also ideal for property owners looking to give their space a more open feel, as they let in the maximum amount of natural light.

Aluminium Hinged Doors

Most of the doors you encounter are hinged doors. These doors are hinged to the left or right of the door jam. This allows them to open either inwards or outwards, but never both ways. While most people opt for the single door variation, a double door alternative known as a French door also exists. Hinged doors are the natural choice for property owners with standard sized doorways.
