Contemporary bungalow featuring a grey front door with side panels


We offer two extensive ranges of luxury, bespoke aluminium external doors, both of which offer Secured by Design accreditation and a multitude of tailored features, letting you seamlessly blend your new external aluminium doors with your current home décor.

Our premium door range, in particular, consists of a contemporary slab, door panel that sits flush, both inside and out, and is available in a large range of distinctive designs, including stainless steel and woodgrain finishes, as well as our full range of RAL, Elite, and Essence finishes.

Our XP77 doors, on the other hand, are more cost-effective, presented in a range of styles and RAL colours with a 44mm deep panel that is glazed into the door.


Premium Entrance Doors

We blend design & quality to bring you the finest premium doors available. Our solid panels sit flush against your door's external & internal sash surface, providing strength, clean lines & distinctive modern aesthetics.


XP77 Entrance Doors

Boasting many of the same features as our best aluminium doors, the XP77 is our most cost-effective entry option. Built with a glazed in panel to create designer inspired styles, they look great whilst still offering superb security features & thermal performance.


Manufactured from premium-quality aluminium, and thermally insulated for best-in-class energy efficiency, our aluminium front doors keep your home secure and comfortable.

Strong in appearance & bold in design, our entryways allow you to create a statement right at the entrance of your home, hinting at the true style awaiting inside with a bespoke solution tailored for you.

Available in a range of distinctive styles designed specifically around what you want, we’re certain you’ll find the perfect aluminium front door to set the perfect tone as you enter your dream home.

We’ve widened our range of contemporary front doors to give you even more flexibility as you look to create that ideal entrance for your dream home. Our entryways are both bold and distinctive, with warmer natural options that still retain the contemporary aesthetic afforded across our entire selection.

Natural oak finishes
A natural oak finish in either malt or concrete adds warmth and depth to your entryway, and each of our external aluminium doors’ outer frames and adjacent windows can be powder coated with any RAL colour. This gives our flush door panels a solid wood appearance that creates a contemporary aesthetic visible on both sides.

Textured black indents & feature handles
Our textured black indents and feature handles are also now available as an option for stainless steel. Black is a top trend for interior fixtures and fittings, making for a wider choice across our premium range.

All of our doors are made to SBD standards for maximum safety and security. No matter the door you choose, you’ll have a secure locking system.


Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as standard

As part of our commitment to industry-leading quality, we offer high security, anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick, and anti-bump lock cylinders throughout our entire range of doors. These premium lock barrels are 3-star diamond-rated BSI cylinders, which exceeds the 2-star standard required for Secured by Design accreditation.

We even supply these cylinders in doors with half a barrel, so internally, the lock cylinder boasts all the same security benefits, meaning that if an intruder does get into your property, they won’t be able to break out through your doors.

Unlike other Secured by Design standard lock barrels, the keys for the barrels we supply can be cut by any locksmith without the need for a specific lock card to have further keys cut.

The lock barrels themselves are supplied by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lock cylinders, which we think is the perfect complement to our industry-leading range of products.

The manufacturing process includes injecting the door with a liquid component, which sets rock-hard, making it light, but as solid as concrete. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for something secure and reliable.

Our contemporary front doors also offer two core security features:

  • Anti-snap/bump security cylinders in all door products
  • A secure, five-point locking mechanism


Naturally, your home’s entryway will get a lot of use – that’s why we’ve designed our modern front doors with the safety of you and your family in mind. Because all of our doors are bespoke, we’ll always install your bottom threshold as flush as possible, making sure there are no trip hazards when coming in or out of your home.

Yes, we can offer a stainless steel letterbox in our Dicoma, Sila, and Liseo selection.

What colour are the door hinges?

The door hinges are available in black, white, and brushed chrome.

Can you have a standard door handle instead of a feature handle?

Yes, our standard lever handles are available instead of our stainless steel feature handles. Lever handles are available in black, white, and brushed chrome, which means that the door can be operated with the handle rather than the turn of the key.

Yes, we manufacture bespoke windows that can be coupled and installed into your new door. We also manufacture aluminium curtain-walling that can house your new entryway – the perfect solution for grand entrance atriums on luxury residential projects.

Are the door panels flush with the door?

Yes, as standard throughout our premium range, we offer a double-skin panel, which is bonded to both faces of the door sash to create a flush, modern appearance inside and out.

Our XP77 range, however, is not flush, as the panel is glazed into the door.

Are your modern front doors displayed in your showrooms?

Yes, our full range is displayed in our Leeds, Glasgow, South East, Romford, & Redhill showrooms.

What is the biggest size entryway you can offer?

The biggest front entrance door we can offer in our premium range is 1200 mm by 2550 mm in height.
