A good-looking front door is an essential aesthetic component of the first impression of your home.
“A front door speaks volumes about what lies beyond, so it is important to select one that complements your home’s architectural and interior style,” says John Lamb, category manager for Kenzo at leading windows and doors supplier, Swartland. “However, your choice should not only be about aesthetics – functionality needs to be considered as well.”
In light of this, Lamb notes that aluminium front doors – such as those from Swartland’s Kenzo range – are a great option. “Kenzo’s aluminium front doors are available in a variety of styles, designed to complement both contemporary and traditional homes, as well as practical comfort.”
Here are the main benefits of installing an aluminium front door:
• Strength: Aluminium is a composite material – strong, yet lightweight. An aluminium front door can feature larger glazing elements for maximum light, while not compromising on the strength of the door itself, providing greater security and protection.
• Style: Kenzo’s range of doors is available in styles that complement modern and traditional architectural design, and can be front doors, balcony doors, office doors and internal doors. Equip an aluminium door with top lights (glass panels at the top) and/or sidelights (glass panels on the sides), making it a standout feature.
• Durability: Aluminium doesn’t experience contraction or expansion – doors will not warp or crack, no matter what the climate. Aluminium’s natural resistance to corrosion makes it especially suitable for coastal areas.
• Ease of maintenance: Aluminium doors come with a durable, aesthetically pleasing powder-coated finish, which is maintained by a simple wipe-down – no sanding or sealing is required.
• Affordability: Aluminium doors are a comparatively inexpensive option, largely because of the wide availability of the material and the fact that it is easy to recycle.
Kenzo offers double-glazing on all its doors and windows in line with the drive towards intelligent buildings, which uses passive methods to control internal comfort levels.
