Aluminium Doors and Sliders, Southern Highlands, NSW

Aluminium is a popular metal for creating things, it can be manufactured into many shapes and suit different uses. It is lightweight and strong, as well as versatile. For aluminium to become that long-lasting material we know it has to go through a process known as aluminum work in order to create things like aluminium doors and aluminium sliding doors in Sydney and the Southern Highlands.

Aluminium Work

The process of creating brilliant aluminium usually consists of two techniques: the refining process and the smelting process. The refining method consists of mixing bauxite (a sedimentary rock with a high aluminum content) with caustic soda, then crushing them into small particles and process them to create a slurry. The slurry will go through extreme pressure and heat to create a liquid that will be filtered through a tank to remove the impurities.

A whole different process is smelting which involves exposing an aluminum solution to electric compounds that will allow the oxygen and aluminum particles to separate and the aluminum particles will settle at the bottom of the container. Both methods are equally capable of providing high-quality aluminium.

Aluminum fabricators will use different techniques to mold and bend aluminium to the shape you require.

Aluminium Doors

Many people are considering aluminium as the main material for their doors because it is resistant and new techniques have allowed it to have different shapes and styles to become a beautiful addition to your house or business. Here are the main options of aluminium doors we offer:

Slide and Fold

The Slide-fold door is a system that joins many door panels and you can open the doors and folding them back by their panels. They use an overhead sliding track that will allow the partial opening or closing of the doors. These doors work great to allow sunlight in, maximize your space, and help to insulate your place.

Sliding Doors

This type of door consists of a fixed panel and a sliding panel which can be opened or closed when you move back and forth the rollers on the track. They are modern and you can easily open the door to the desired side to get a beautiful view of the outside and save space.

Casement Doors

These doors usually come with large glass panels that are connected to the mainframe. They are versatile and can be used for the patio and balcony, they offer a great view of the outside and are the perfect combination between classic and modern.
