Aluminium door and window frames are the favoured choice of architects, particularly for modern new builds and extensions which demand aesthetically sleek, stylish and slim exterior aspects.
Although aluminium frames are very light-weight they have the metallic strength to enable a door or window design that maximises the glass area, giving the best possible aspect without needing a bulky frame for support. It’s the perfect way to bring the outdoors in, and because there is a large area of double or triple glazing making up the bulk of the door or pane, an aluminium-framed glass door or window is extremely thermally efficient.
Aluminium frames are far more stable than uPVC or timber which expand or contract to a degree when in very cold or warm temperatures, affecting the fit in the frame.
Another plus with aluminium frames is the fact that they are maintenance free, durable and corrosion-resistant. They won’t fade, rust, rot or peel and never need painting; just a wipe down is all that is needed if they get dusty, to keep them looking like new.
Those who are environment conscious will be pleased to know that aluminium is 100 percent recyclable, so if your aluminium window and door frames ever need replacing, they can be melted down and used again. Visofold Sliding Doors
Timber & Allied Services are approved purveyors of the top of the range series of Visofold slide folding doors, manufactured at an extrusion plant in the west country, fabricated from aluminium and designed with a Smart Systems profile.
Visofold Doors are a product of Smart Architectural Aluminium, the UK’s leading suppliers of aluminium glazing systems that are suited to all sorts of buildings, from private homes to retail establishments and commercial properties.
The Smart Systems Visofold architectural aluminium doors we supply throughout Wiltshire, North East Somerset and beyond work similarly to bi-fold doors, able to glide right back to open up an entire wall in warm weather. There are various opening configurations to suit all purposes, and the sashes can be folded either to the inside or the outside.
There are different models of doors to suit different applications, from delicate conservatories or patio doors to busy restaurants. You can choose between double or triple glazing, and the doors come with high security multi-point locking systems as standard.
These stylish and practical aluminium doors come in a wide range of standard or non-standard colours and finishes, so that they match in with the style and colour-scheme of any building. Choose from metallic, wood-structure, dual-colour, or a host of textured finishes.
The polyester powder coating on the door frames is of the highest quality, meeting the latest requirements of British and European standards, and the heat-cured coating is subjected to rigorous testing to ensure it stands up to extreme weather conditions, salt spray and even boiling water in a pressure cooker!
