Up and Coming: Contemporary Aluminium Front Doors

Contemporary aluminium front doors are becoming more popular by the minute. If you’re looking for a new front door, then you might only be thinking about whether you should choose uPVC or timber designs. However, both can feel like a compromise – uPVC is more durable than timber but doesn’t have as much strength, while timber wears down more quickly, especially in poor conditions. Aluminium front doors, though, have the benefits of both with the drawbacks of neither.

Contemporary aluminium front doors are some of the strongest entrances available on the market today. It’s because aluminium is a material with lots of natural strength, meaning doors with these profiles are more secure, durable, and more likely to stand the test of time. Not only that, aluminium doors now don’t have problems with thermal efficiency. With thermally broken profiles in our doors as standard, your new entrance could trap pockets of warm air inside your home without letting them escape.

At Sternfenster, we’ve brought contemporary aluminium front doors to homes across the country. Designed with the UK’s best aluminium profile from Smart, our aluminium doors are thermally efficient, sleek and stylish, as well as being fully customisable. You can also install them quickly and for low prices when choosing a local installers from our Approved Installer Network.

Are Aluminium Doors Thermally Efficient?

One of the main problems of older aluminium front doors was thermal efficiency. Unlike timber, a natural insulator, aluminium is a metal that conducts energy, meaning that cold and hot air used to be more likely to affect your home. However, Sternfenster’s contemporary aluminium front doors come with leading profiles from Smart challenge that convention. It’s because they use thermally broken profiles, meaning they can capture more of your home’s natural heat.

Our aluminium doors retain heat you use inside your home while not letting in outside air. As a result, you’ll have good insulation that lasts all year round, meaning the temperature in your living space will always be stable and comfortable. You won’t have to rely on your radiators to stay warm, either, meaning you can enjoy your home while spending less on your energy bills. And, with less energy used, contemporary aluminium front doors will help you reduce your carbon footprint.

Our systems feature multipoint locking systems, while the door sections and hinges are reinforced to create a stronger profile.

Are Aluminium Front Doors Durable?

Finally, contemporary aluminium front doors won’t just be popular now – they never go out of style. It’s because the doors you see on your street decades from now will still be the same doors that you’ll install today. Aluminium is a durable material, and your new front entrance aluminium door will be fully weatherproof to make sure that wind and rain won’t be able to cause any damage. Our air and water-tight aluminium front doors can last for as long as you call a house a home, without the hassle of regular maintenance.

While timber doors need repainting and revarnishing, and uPVC doors begin to become weak, our aluminium doors will still perform as they did on day one, years into the future. Not only that, you can order powder coated aluminium doors from Sternfenster – they have a unique finish to make your design last even longer. We can coat your doors in over 250 RAL colours, and the finish will ensure they don’t suffer from damage or discolour.
