Material Information

...

Aluminium doors and windows have gained in popularity in the later half of the 20th century.

The strength of aluminium allows Bifold doors to be made with slim sightlines, resulting higher percentage of glass allowing more natural light into your home.

Aluminium doors require very little maintenance, just a wipe with a damp cloth when needed and a regular check to ensure the track is kept free from grit and small stones to ensure the doors continue to run smoothly. Aluminium is more resistant to the elements than PVCu and is not likely to warp or rot.
