Sliding, Folding or Security Doors? Exploring the Different Types of Aluminum Doors

Robust, versatile, lightweight yet strong – aluminium doors bring with them a host of benefits that not only improve our homes or properties but also ensure our spaces are sleek and stylish. In Malaysia, aluminium doors are revered for their elegant design, but more than that, homeowners and designers alike are impressed by the wide range of styles and designs to suit their specifications. Whether you want a statement piece for your front door or a seamless sliding door leading to the garden, there is an aluminium door to suit diverse preferences.

Aluminium Sliding Doors 

Take a look around, and you’d see that most Malaysian homes would have at least one sliding door. It’s a popular door design for many good reasons: they optimise space utilisation, provide ample natural light and unobstructed views, and seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor spaces. 

To get the most out of sliding doors, it’s ideal to invest in one made from premium aluminium. Why are aluminium doors highly recommended? Firstly, while they appear light in weight and profile, they are actually incredibly durable and strong, with resistance to rust, corrosion, and weather damage. This ensures that the doors maintain their integrity and appearance over time. Additionally, their slim profiles allow for larger glass panels, maximising natural light and creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Furthermore, premium-grade aluminium sliding doors offer design flexibility, with various finishes and configurations available to match your design preferences. They are also environmentally sustainable and 100% recyclable, contributing to a reduced carbon footprint. 

At Window Elements, our FinoSlide aluminium sliding doors offer a host of advantages with a focus on slim and streamlined profiles to meet modern contemporary concepts. Aesthetics aside, one of the things that stand out about FinoSlide is its smooth, effortless motion, which makes it easy to open and close it. From the finely crafted frame to the meticulously engineered sliding mechanism, every detail and component of a FinoSlide aluminium sliding door has been constructed with the highest quality materials to ensure a durable sliding door with everlasting beauty. 

Aluminium Folding Doors 

Aluminium folding doors are also another popular choice in Malaysia to connect indoor and outdoor areas while letting in natural light and views into the interior space. Thanks to its wide opening and sturdy but lightweight frames, aluminium folding doors offer flexibility and stability. Featuring a series of panels, folding doors are also a space-saving feature due to their folding mechanism, which allows the panels to fold and stack neatly to one side, creating a wide opening. As the panels are hinged together and glide along a top or bottom track when opening or closing the doors, folding doors create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, providing a larger, open area for gatherings, entertainment, and enjoying the views.

Aluminium Security Doors with Security Mesh  

In Malaysia, one of our biggest concerns is home security. Lately, there have been numerous news reports of break-ins like the one in Ipoh, which happened multiple times to the same home, or the one in Seremban involving armed burglars. It’s no small matter; thus, homeowners must take safety measures to start protecting their homes. Installing a security camera is a good move, but pairing it with security doors is even better – in fact, having a security door is essential. You should not skimp on this, so opt for high-quality security doors made from premium materials like high-grade aluminium. By investing in an aluminium security door, you can be assured of added protection for your home while adding functional and design value to your property.
