Why Choose Aluminium Doors ?

3rd of May, 2023

A shop, a hospital, a school, a dentist, a doctors, a supermarket or an office, no matter where we are in the world, automatic aluminium doors are literally part of the world we live in. On a normal day you might have entered and exited multiple automatic doors without even realising. But it’s doubtful any of you have ever stopped to consider them for a second, and quite how useful they are.

Why are aluminium doors better than uPVC?

Aluminium is a more durable and longer-lasting material than uPVC, which may make it a more cost-effective option in the long term. Ultimately, the cost difference between uPVC and aluminium will depend on individual circumstances and preferences.

Aluminium provides exceptional weather resistance and superior thermal and acoustic insulation. Its reliability makes it a premium entrance door material. At the same time, it enables precise workmanship, which is crucial for products with high thermal and acoustic insulation.


Aluminium doors are an excellent choice because they are durable, easy to clean, and cost-effective. A stylish and attractive aluminium door is a great way to enhance the look of your facility. These doors are popular because of their sturdiness, aesthetics, and cleaning ability.

The ability to enter a busy, public place without having to touch door handles is something that can no longer be taken for granted.

Disabled Access

Liveable design is the inclusion of key easy living features that aim to make spaces easier and safer to use.This allows for ease of access with no entrance trip hazards for people with a disability, senior persons, impairments and people with temporary injuries.

The Disability and Discrimination Act, 2004 set out requirements for service providers to make “Reasonable adjustments” to their buildings to ensure disabled people can access. Therefore, anybody with a disability should be able to enter, move around freely, and exit a building safely.


Aluminium entry doors are also strong elements of access control and resistance to intrusion attempts. Combined with burglar-resistant glazing, reinforced hinges and  high-performance locks, ensuring uniform protection. These security options provide maximum protection without sacrificing aesthetics.

They also provide easy access for the elderly, people with pushchairs and children,people using shopping trolleys and many others who have their hands full on the go. For aluminium doors, Scotland and throughout the UK give one of our team a call today 01698 359777.

Flow Rate

In busy public places, for example in a stadium aluminium doors assist to ease traffic and allow crowds to access a space without crowding and bottlenecks.

Energy Saving

This makes sense, when you consider how prone our door and window areas are to air and heat leakage. Doors and windows made with aluminium are much more energy efficient than those made with timber or PVC. High-performance aluminium door and window frames can have a huge impact on heat gain and loss.

Aluminium automatic doors shut themselves when not in use, which prevents people leaving open doors, reducing waste and lessening the cost of temperature control.

Practical, Maintenance Free

One of the biggest advantages of aluminium doors is that they are maintenance-free. Aluminium does not rot or deform. This makes the door look good over time, it also helps you save time cleaning, as an aluminium door only needs to be wiped off from time to time.

As you can see, aluminium doors have a lot of benefits. But in order to benefit from all this, it is important that the door assembly is done correctly and the hardware is of the best quality.
