Why choose our aluminium residential doors
Strength, style and performance
Equally suitable for a front or rear entrance, Mates Rates residential doors are a refreshing alternative to timber, PVC-U or composite door designs.
They use our strong aluminium frames, with the same simple lines as our flush windows. Doors can be fully or partially glazed, or incorporate a full height aluminium panel.
These doors are engineered for strength and security and are fitted with a multi-point locking system.
Fully compliant with PAS24, they’ll make sure any home is protected from the elements. Effective seals keep the wind and rain outside. Our advanced thermal break technology and high specification sealed units keep the warmth indoors, and of course, if you are choosing a glazed door, we will ensure safety glass is part of the package.
