One of the first impressions of your home is the front door. So, why not choose one that makes a statement?
John Lamb, category manager of Kenzo Aluminium from leading window and door supplier, Swartland, says: “Your front door speaks volumes about the rest of the house that lies beyond – so it is important to select one that complements your home’s architectural and interior style. However, your choice should not only be about aesthetics, but functionality needs to be considered as well.”
Good-looking stylish aluminium doors
Aluminium front doors, such as those from Swartland’s Kenzo range of aluminium doors and windows, are a great option. “Aluminium front doors come in various good-looking styles that are designed to complement both contemporary and traditional homes.”
They also boast a whole host of other benefits that make them a very practical option as well:
Strength: Aluminium is a composite material – strong, yet lightweight. Aluminium front doors can feature larger glazing elements to let in maximum light, but not compromise on the strength of the door itself. Since they are lightweight and strong, aluminium front doors are tougher and more robust than any other kind of door – providing greater security and protection.
Style: Front doors in the Kenzo range are available in a variety of styles that complement both modern and traditional architectural design and can be used in a wide range of applications, including as front doors, balcony doors, office doors and even internal doors. The door can have toplights (glass panels at the top of the door), and sidelights (glass panels at the side of the door) to let in additional light, making your front door a feature.
Durability: Aluminium front doors are incredibly durable and don’t experience any form of contraction or expansion, whatever the climate. Aluminium is naturally resistant to corrosion, which makes them an especially good option for coastal areas.
Ease of maintenance: Minimum maintenance is required, saving you time and money. Aluminium front doors have a durable and aesthetically pleasing powder-coated finish. The Kenzo range, for example, is available in a choice of a silver, bronze, charcoal or white powder-coated finish that doesn’t fade or discolour when exposed to the elements. To maintain this finish, just wipe down the frame with a damp cloth.
Affordability: Aluminium front doors are an inexpensive option due to the wide availability and recyclability of the material. It has easy maintenance and is affordable.
Increases comfort of living: Comfort living is about maintaining a comfortable indoor climate for the occupants by controlling the transfer of heat and sound between the interior and exterior of a building. The global shift in the built environment towards intelligent buildings, designed to control indoor comfort levels using passive methods such as double glazing, helps to reduce energy consumption, save money and reduce the impact on the environment. Kenzo also gives customers the option of having their windows in double glazing.
Green option: Aluminium boasts a very long lifespan, but it is also very easy to recycle, notes John. “Recycling aluminium requires a mere 5% of the energy needed to collect new aluminium – making aluminium front doors a great option for homeowners with environmental concerns.”
