Once, windows and glass doors had to be framed in timber, which had to be kept painted to prevent warping and twisting. Timber frames made the doors much heavier so design and use was limited. These days there are aluminium frames which are amazingly light, yet strong enough to hold that glass in place. They don’t have to be painted because the colour is already there. The lighter frames meant that doors especially, can be used in ways that were once impossible. Here are four ways in which aluminium doors can enhance your home.
- You can remove a whole wall and replace it with bi-fold aluminium framed glass doors. This allows the outside to be easily accessed, gives more natural lighting and enhances your living space. Having breakfast or supper on a warm spring day with all the kitchen doors opened into the garden or the veranda has to be much more enjoyable than sweltering in a closed up room. It’s like enjoying the outdoors without having to go out there.
