Advantages of Aluminium Sliding Doors
Aluminium sliding doors make an eye-catching addition to any home, and when looked at more closely you will discover they come packed with practical advantages too.
Maximising Natural Light
Sliding doors allow more light into your home and can help brighten it during the dark winter days, making rooms feel warmer and inviting. This feature can especially come in handy during those times when your space may seem dim and oppressive.
Modern aluminium frames used to manufacture these doors feature cutting-edge polyamide thermal breaking technology which makes them extremely energy efficient, helping reduce the rate at which heat transfers into and out of your home, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter, resulting in lower future energy bills for you. Energy efficiency is an important factor on mostly bespoke glazing solutions offered by Finepoint Glass.
Durability Sliding door frames are made from lightweight aluminium alloy that resists wear-and-tear, warping, rotting and extreme temperatures – guaranteeing long term performance of these door frames. Furthermore, their impact resistant surface and extreme temperature resistance also help ensure they will perform perfectly over time.
As another means of increasing durability and performance levels, top manufacturers frequently incorporate toughened safety glass in their sliding door designs for optimal durability and performance. This shatterproof material helps deter intruders from entering your property without invading its safety, so you can enjoy beautiful views outside without fear of security threats. Multipoint locking systems commonly found on aluminium sliding doors further enhance security measures within them.
Sliding Door Applications in Residential Spaces
Sliding doors have quickly become a trend in home design and remodelling projects alike, becoming an integral component of both new and remodel construction projects. Sliding doors offer homeowners a range of benefits, including framing beautiful views while creating multifunctional rooms through sliding glass partitions.
Sliding doors require less space for opening than hinged ones due to not needing door frames on either side to extend out from the walls. They’re also an extremely safe option since they cannot easily become dislodged from their tracks.
Sliding doors offer many other advantages, including making rooms appear larger and more open, letting more natural light into a space, brightening it up while decreasing artificial lighting usage during the day,connecting indoor and outdoor living and helping increase productivity at work.
Sliding doors add a stylish element that complements any interior design style, such as modern or retro. Available in many materials with different finishes and inserts, sliding doors add elegance while also increasing daylighting and privacy.
Sliding patio doors, also referred to as sliding door systems, are commonly used between interior spaces and an outdoor space such as a balcony, deck, garden or porch. Sliding doors have become an attractive feature in homes and apartments alike because they create access to nature while offering privacy when necessary.
Aluminium Sliding Doors in Renovations
Aluminium sliding doors have become one of the most widely-used exterior door types in new construction and home renovation, due to their durability, affordability, and wide array of design options available both residential and commercially. Aluminium sliding doors typically consist of an aluminium frame fitted with safety glass panels – they come in various styles, sizes and colours to meet any renovation project need.
Aluminium sliding doors come with various finishes, such as powder-coating paints in black, white or anthracite – this allows homeowners to match them to existing windows and other features of their property. Homeowners may specify one colour for all frames or have two-tone options (different internally and externally). Dual-coloured models also enable residents to find doors that blend in seamlessly. You will face various alternatives on Finepoint Glass, when you choose aluminium sliding doors.
Sliding doors can also be specified with low threshold designs to provide easy access into outdoor living areas, and come equipped with thermal breaks and insulation to increase energy efficiency and cut heating and cooling costs – an especially beneficial feature in households with children or elderly people living there.
Commercial and Architectural Use of Aluminium Sliding Doors
Aluminium Sliding Doors have become an increasingly popular choice for both residential and commercial architectural projects, offering sleek aesthetics that blend into various modern architectural styles.
Offering clear views to the outdoors while saving space in rooms while connecting indoor to outdoor spaces seamlessly. Aluminium sliding doors come with multiple frame colours, architectural glazing options, and hardware choices so architects and designers can customise solutions specifically tailored to their projects.
Aluminium makes an excellent material choice for sliding door frames, providing strength, durability and resistance against corrosion while being lightweight and providing good insulation properties. Aluminium can also be used as material for frame panels as well as tracks and rollers to enable them to glide open and closed easily.
Aluminium sliding door systems also consist of locks and handles, which offer both security and ease of operation. There is a wide selection of sizes, shapes, materials, locking systems and handle designs available depending on the desired level of security and ease of use.
Aluminium profiles used to construct door frames come in hollow, semi-solid, and solid versions, depending on your door system requirements – such as load bearing capacity and thermal performance. A good quality aluminium profile requires only occasional cleaning and lubrication to stay looking its best!
