Aluminium Shopfront Door Systems Available

There are several types of aluminium shopfront door systems available, catering to different design preferences, security requirements, and functional needs. Some common types of aluminium shopfront systems include:

  1. Standard Framed Shopfronts: These are traditional shopfront systems with aluminium frames that offer a sturdy and cost-effective solution for commercial spaces. They typically consist of aluminium profiles forming a frame structure with glazed panels fitted within.

  2. Frameless Glass Shopfronts: These shopfront systems use minimal or no visible aluminium frames, giving a sleek and modern appearance with a focus on maximum glass visibility. They are ideal for creating a contemporary and minimalist aesthetic, allowing for abundant natural light and unobstructed views.

  3. Sliding Shopfronts: These systems feature sliding doors that can be manually or automatically operated, offering convenient access to the commercial space. Sliding shopfronts are suitable for areas with limited space or where a wide opening is required.

  4. Bi-fold Shopfronts: These systems consist of multiple panels that fold in a concertina-style, providing a wide opening for easy access and maximum airflow. Bi-fold shopfronts are ideal for creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, such as in restaurants or cafes.

  5. Curved Shopfronts: These shopfront systems are designed with curved aluminium profiles to create unique and eye-catching storefronts. Curved shopfronts offer a contemporary and distinctive appearance, making them suitable for businesses that want to stand out and make a visual statement.

  6. Automated Shopfronts: These systems feature motorized doors that can be controlled by sensors, remote control, or a building automation system. Automated shopfronts offer enhanced convenience, accessibility, and security, making them ideal for high-traffic areas or businesses with specific security requirements.

  7. Security Shopfronts: These shopfront systems are designed with reinforced aluminium profiles, laminated or toughened glass, and additional security features such as anti-panic hardware, security glazing, or integrated security screens. Security shopfronts are ideal for businesses that require a higher level of security, such as jewellery stores or banks.
