Are aluminium doors better than uPVC?

In recent years, aluminium doors have become an increasingly popular option for home improvements. Driven by a rise in demand for contemporary styling, increased availability, and reduction in prices, aluminium is now becoming a much more accessible choice to compete with uPVC as the go-to option for doors.

Thanks to the slim profiles and inherent strength, they rose to popularity for their stunning aesthetics, but when it comes to all-round performance, are aluminium doors better than uPVC?

How energy efficient are aluminium doors?

One of the main benefits of choosing aluminium doors is without doubt the weather performance. Aluminium doors are perfect for protecting you against extreme weather conditions by offering impressive acoustic insulation, wind resistance and watertightness to ensure the elements are kept at bay.

The thermally broken aluminium profile also means your home is kept at a comfortable temperature all-year round, while also reducing your energy bills.

How secure are aluminium doors?

The strong profile makes aluminium a much more secure door option than uPVC. Our aluminium doors also come fitted with multi-point locking systems which prevent against lock picking, bumping and drilling.

Secured by Design and PAS 24 upgrades are also available for added peace of mind.

What design capabilities do I have with aluminium doors?

Aluminium doors are perfect for creating a bold statement in your home. Made with less frame and more glass, they flood your home with natural daylight to transform your glazed extension.

You are in complete control of how you want your aluminium door to fit into your property. You can choose from over 200 RAL colours, with the option of dual colour to match both the inside and outside of your home, as well as having a choice of configuration options so you can decide which way it opens and how many sashes you have.

Bifold and sliding doors are also fantastic options for those looking to open up their home to the garden as the wide openings create a seamless connection between your home and the outdoors. The wide expanses of glass and slim sightlines also allow you to perfectly frame your view.

What types of aluminium doors are there?

Aluminium bifold doors are the most popular choice for glazed extensions as the concertina opening style means you can stack them completely to one side to open up your home completely.

Sliding and French doors are also popular options for homeowners looking for something for the back of their home. Our range of heritage doors allow you to create the traditional look with all the modern performance benefits of aluminium, ideal for those looking to recreate art-deco styling.
