Designed and crafted by us, with unique features you won’t find on other products, we’ve put together ten reasons why Aluco products are probably the best investment you’ll make.

The best steel look doors from the UK’s innovator in heritage, and industrial glazing

Aluco is proud to be the first to innovate with an exclusive collection of desirable and on-trend steel-look doors and windows. We’ve not only taken inspiration from industrial glazing, iconic steel brands, Scandi interiors, heritage and Art-Deco. In addition, we have added our own creativity and design expertise in bespoke steel-look aluminium. As a result, Aluco crafts our products unlike any other on the market.

From our modern Cambridgeshire factory, a nationwide presence and exhibiting at the UK’s premier home and building exhibitions, the Aluco Exterior Collection provides stylish and iconic windows and doors with all the security, energy efficiency and performance you expect. For the inside of your home, office or retail premises, no other internal steel-inspired door or screen looks or feels like an Aluco product.

You’ll find other steel-look windows and doors on the market, but many unrelated trade manufacturers make most of these. Like any other premium brand, only we make the best steel look doors, and our trained and supported nationwide network of professional window companies fit them. Your guarantee of consistent quality every time, hand-finished to perfection and the peace of mind of knowing exactly where they came from. We even welcome you to our factory by appointment to see your new doors or windows being made.

2. The last doors you’ll ever buy

Made with premium aluminium, a marine-grade coating, quality glass, the best possible handles, hardware, and general components. When we make the best steel look doors, we want them to last. We know and understand our customers’ investment in their homes and buildings. That is why we want your new doors to serve you well now and long into the future.

A complete steel-look home solution bespoke made to your precise sizes, design, colour and requirements.

4. Doors that replicate steel better

The unique style of steel windows and doors comes about because they are made entirely differently from aluminium. So our challenge was to design the best steel look doors that can replicate the styling of steel as best as possible. We are confident Aluco doors offer one of the closes possible matches to steel. Find out just how close they are in profile sightlines and dimensions. Distinctive lock and handle feature backplates. Frame styling and handles, just like steel. Aluco makes the best steel-look doors, promising precisely the look you want.

The best way to experience and understand the quality and obsessive attention to detail in every Aluco product is to see it. Smooth joints at the corners and where the bars meet the frames. A superb colour finish, whether you choose the desirable matt black or a bespoke colour. High quality safety glass in a choice of clear or patterned. The best steel look doors must also be a pleasure to use whilst withstanding daily use and family life. We’ve chosen a range of great door handles and accessories that ensure you get the best user experience and finish off the look of your doors to perfection.

6. The aluco Floating Lock

Our own creation and exclusive to Aluco, the floating lock design gives you a completely unique steel-look door and is a design and engineering masterpiece. The floating look is available for interior doors or exterior side or patio doors, which gives you the recognisable feature backplate of steel doors, but one that appears to float into the glass. At the same time, it offers you the choice of either a fully glazed door with no bars or a choice of glazing bars with the familiar grid-like grid pattern. Perfect as a contemporary door or when you want to make an individual style statement, Other doors on the market mean you must have glazing bars. The floating lock design gives you the best of both worlds with the option of a fully glazed door as well.

Just completed house renovation, using all the internal bespoke doors with glass panels. Absolutely delighted with the quality of doors and service. I was assisted every step of the way in getting the right size and format of extremely tall door. Keiran has been exceptionally helpful to deal with over the months from ordering to completion. 10/10I never usually do reviews but but I would say the whole experience and end result that has been achieved has been amazing.

So pleased with our new Aluco bifold doors, the best we could find on the market! We wanted bifolds with maximum glass area and no bulky frame and the Aluco doors were the perfect choice. Stunning, deep matte black colour, high quality, great choice of hardware and a first-class service. Highly recommend!

I recently had 3 sets of ALUCO exterior crital styled steel framed doors fitted to my property as part of an ongoing renovation. After looking around at various options Aluco was the only manufacturer that I felt could deliver the style I was looking for. With most other companies I thought the design was bulky and not finished to the finesse Aluco has achieved . Based on my experience I can honestly thoroughly recommend this manufacturer and will look to use them again on any future projects
