Aluminium Doors – Give your home ‘The Wow Factor’
As one of South Africa’s leading providers of Aluminium stacking/ folding doors, Design Doors has extensive knowledge of the requirements needed to provide the ‘Wow Factor’ within your home.

Many of our products are installed to the rear of a house, including sliding, patio and stacking /folding doors, that let you easily view the garden, and help to bring the outside into the lounge area.

However, we also manufacture and install Aluminium front doors that can be contemporary or traditional, depending on the current exterior features of your home.

Aluminium doors are great as they are durable and offer supplementary security to the home. Because of this, we are able to make doors with a larger amount of glass content than many other suppliers. This is because the aluminium is strong enough to withstand the outside elements.

As a result, your front door can be transformed into a design that allows maximum light to travel down your hallway, with additional side panels and top lights an added option.

We can create front doors to an array of different styles and colours, which makes it simple to fit in with the current windows and doors, whilst also allowing it to become a focal point of the house.

Aluminium front doors are also perfect because they do not expand as PVCu equivalents do. This means that over a period of time, you will have no problems with movement or alignment and getting through the front door will be as easy as it was the very first time.

We also offer all front doors with a comprehensive safety and security package that includes multiple locks, top bolts and any other specific individual requirements.

Aluminium Stacking Doors

Folding doors or stacking doors are best defined as a multi-folding door that creates a 90% clear opening, giving you complete open access to your garden outside. Typically Bi-folding doors open in a concertina style and neatly fold flat when open, either on the exterior or interior. It is this style of functionality that leads some people to refer to them as concertina doors.

Aluminium Sliding Doors

Design Doors manufacture a beautiful range of aluminium sliding doors, that offer customers the perfect alternative to folding, patio, or French doors.

What makes a sliding door different, and to some more attractive, than a folding door, is its ability to completely open up a room or property. A single sliding door can be constructed to a width and height of 2.7m which provides you with fantastic interrupted views of the scene beyond.

Benefits Of Our Sliding Doors

Customers who have had aluminium sliding doors installed in their home have commented that it feels like they have a “sliding glass wall” rather than a door, again reinforcing the sense of closeness to the environment outside. Due to having fewer vertical panels, a sliding door also delivers more light into the building.


 3 Main Advantages of Aluminum Garage Doors

Probably the biggest advantage of aluminium is its lightweight. Due to this weight-saving, it makes it far easier to install aluminium garage doors wherever you are in South Africa. Also because there is less weight and less strain on the roller and tracks, the lifespan of the entire system and garage is extended. In addition, with the chances of the system failing greatly reduced, aluminium garage doors are far safer and more reliable.

Aluminum is an element naturally resistant to rust and any corrosion. As a metal, steel must have inclusions that provide this protection, but aluminum forms a layer that keeps out oxidation. Of course, this layer won’t last forever, but improves the longevity of the garage door if you live around salt and moisture.

Given it’s softer than steel, aluminium is easy to design and emboss, providing extra aesthetics for your home. This feature also allows aluminium to be recycled, boosting its environmentally friendly attributes.
