19 Mar 2021

If a company is building or renovating their commercial space, then they will eventually need to select a door option. Though we supply aluminium doors, there are many other options available on the market. From different materials to different configurations, business owners are spoiled for choice. With all of these door options available on the market, how do companies decide the best option? The answer is surprisingly simple, pick the best investment.

Companies make difficult decisions every day and often base their choices off of whether it is a smart investment or not. A door choice should be no different. Though the choice of door is completely dependent on the business owner’s wants and the nature of a business, we fully believe that an aluminium sliding door is not just the best option but also, the best investment for a company.

5 key features of our aluminium sliding doors that make it a solid investment for companies


Energy efficiency is not just the trendy thing to do, but it’s also an environmentally-conscious choice as well as a cost-efficient one. Anything that allows businesses to promote themselves positively as well as save money is a win.

Aluminium sliding doors are an energy-efficient choice for one very specific reason. With sliding doors, you can benefit from wide glass panes which allow natural light into your business. In addition to the beautiful illumination of your interior, this also reduces the need for artificial lighting in your business which reduces your business’ energy consumption and subsequently, your utility bills.

Weather resistance

Sydney is home to blazing heat, rainstorms and high winds, making it a nightmare for the exterior facade of business. High temperatures and moisture from rain can cause several problems for exterior doors including, swelling, splitting, chipping and cracking. In addition to the reduced functionality of the door, it also shortens the life of the door and ruins its aesthetic appeal.

Aluminium has a high resistance to corrosion and is very resistant to weathering, meaning that both its functionality and aesthetic will not suffer under Sydney’s weather, regardless of whether it’s summer or winter. What does this mean for a company’s investment? Weather-resistance in a material indicates longevity in the product which means that companies will not have to spend money repairing or replacing the door for a long time.

Durable and secure

In a similar vein, aluminium’s weather and corrosion-resistant qualities, makes it very durable and subsequently, extremely secure. As mentioned previously, its durability helps to maintain the door’s structure, functionality and lifespan.

This durability and resistance are important for the door’s functionality and security because it means that the aluminium sliding door will not become damaged or develop wear and tear and unknowingly pose a security risk. The aluminium sliding door provides security against both natural and criminal elements, making it extremely pertinent that the door remain durable.

Versatile functionality

For businesses and commercial spaces, it’s important that aluminium sliding doors provide versatility when necessary. An aluminium sliding door can easily open wide to accommodate a large influx of customers (in the case of a commercial shop front door), or to communicate with an employee, and then close while not completely blocking off the office, for private meetings or in the event of unfavourable weather.

While this may seem like a simple feature and one that is not often thought about, it is quite important when considering the functionality features that you will require. It’s a detail that can easily be glossed over but that can present a significant problem if not properly planned for.

Luxurious and aesthetically flexible
