Why choose Aluminium Sliding Doors?

Reliable and durable

Aluminium is an extremely durable, lightweight and strong material, which makes it a perfect choice for manufacturing exterior sliding doors.

Unlike timber or uPVC, aluminium is a very stable material with minimal contraction and expansion depending on the temperature. This prevents external sliding door frames from bending and twisting making them hard to open or close.

Low maintenance

All our aluminium door frames and components are protected against the elements and will never require repainting. Unlike steel frame doors, aluminium frames are rust free and on top of that protected with a special coating, which protects it even in marine environments.

Energy saving

Recent technological advancements made aluminium door frames just as energy efficient as its timber or uPVC counterparts whilst allowing for a slim and elegant design.


Aluminium is a robust metal, making it a perfect choice for sliding door manufacturing. Combined with a top-end locking mechanism it will ensure maximum security for your home at all times.
