Steel Versus Aluminium Doors

Whats the difference between Steel and Aluminium Doors? in this blog we explore the pros and cons of both.

Steel doors tend to be the most popular and more widely used.  Notably, it is the cost which stands out first and foremost.  Steel is less expensive than aluminium.

Aluimium shutters have a more asthetically pleasing profile, providing a more attractive finish.  Which may explain why they are more popular on shops, offices and houses. 

Steel doors are stronger than aluminium, but cheaper.  Steel doesn't tend to scratch as easily either.  For this reason, they are the most popular choice in shutters within commercial settings.

 

Aluminium Doors

In addition;  to provide a more attractive textured look, aluminium domestic shutters can be foil wrapped (as above).

Don't forget there are aluminium glazed personnel doors as well as steel personnel doors.   The pros and cons being the same as the shutters above.
