How to choose the perfect internal room divider

When it comes to selecting the perfect internal room divider for your home and for a commercial space like an office shop or café, the bespoke nature of Aluco internal doors and screens provides the best possible solution because of its fully bespoke and customisable nature. We’ve created our comprehensive buying guide to help you understand how our crafted and hand-finished internal room dividers offer you fantastic choices of designs, sizes, colours, and glass options. We will also explain why an Aluco room divider ensures you get the most out of your investment.

Choosing your internal room divider design.

The design of your room divider will depend on the room type you intend to divide and how you intend to use the space. If you have a more standard room, an Aluco internal room divider can divide the space into two separate zones. Larger rooms may benefit from a corner or rectangular design. All our room dividers can be designed as a corner arrangement as one example.

Also important when thinking about the design are the room divider doors. You can choose from a single door, a double door placed centrally or offset, or more than one door set within the room divider, sizes permitting. Other options with integrating an internal door are:

  • 20mm or 25mm glazing bars.
  • 33mm door transoms.
  • Standard or deep door bottom rails.
  • A choice of door handle styles and colours.
  • Option door accessories for comfort or function.

The next design consideration is how you want your screens to look. The mullions, transoms and glazing bars can create the desirable multi-panel effect of the steel look in either large or small glass panels. An Aluco room divider and matching door can have as many or a few glazing bars as you wish. We also have our floating lock design for doors giving you the beautiful steel look in an all-glass design, with no bars.

Enhancing Aesthetics with colour.

The colour of your internal room divider frames is crucial to the overall aesthetic appeal. While black is the most popular colour for an internal room divider, you can also choose classic white or contemporary grey.

At Aluco, we offer over 150 RAL colours for our internal room dividers. Professionally applied, low-maintenance and beautiful, whatever colour finish you choose will work with your interior decor and live up to the rigours of everyday use and family living.

Glazing Options: Selecting the Right Glass.

An Aluco room divider and doors all leave our factory fully glazed, unlike other brands that leave the factory unglazed with the glass fitted by others. All glass supplied with our room dividers and doors is safety glass, manufactured by professional glass processors to the highest standards for your peace of mind. Your choice of glass will invariably depend on whether the space within the divider is a social, work or play space.

Our doors come with single glass up to a reassuring 7mm thick. And because the glass you choose is essential to the overall look, we offer a fantastic choice of clear, frosted, reeded, patterned, acid etched or sandblasted glass, to name just a few. Therefore you have a lot of choice in transparency and clarity as well as privacy. Or you can combine clear and obscure glass.

Aluco internal room divider sizes.

Our fully trained, Aluco Approved Installers can work with you to create the ideal room divider by assessing your space and coming up with the most suitable option. With a fixed screen design, you have a lot of design freedom in creating wide or tall screens. As most of our internal room dividers comprise doors, it is worth explaining the minimum and maximum sizes available.

Aluco fixed screens

An Aluco fixed screen or side panel can be made as narrow as 260mm and as wide as the glass allows, which is typically around 3 metres in one pane. We can also create fixed screens coupled together at up to 6 metres wide or more for commercial spaces. The maximum height for an unsupported screen is 3 metres.

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
