When looking for your next minimalist door style, look no further than Direct Trade. We fabricate and supply premium steel look doors for exquisite homes. Most of our customers are looking to create minimalist and classic designs that work for modern houses or integrate with period homes. We have been an established business for over 20 years.
With these stylish doors, we create designs to bring homes to the 21st century. One of the best parts about steel look doors is that they’re incredibly low maintenance. With a simple wipe of soap and water, your steel look door is clean again.
The added benefit of using steel alternatives, like aluminium, is that you get all the modern and chic designs without any heavy product. This makes it easier to install and more cost effective.
You can order our steel look doors in any number of styles and glazing to match our aluminium casement windows. Look through our brochures to see if you can find the design that’s right for your next installation.
At Direct Trade, we, of course, test all of our doors to BFRC standards. You’ll know them by their rainbow seal of approval. Aluminium can exceed government standards for thermal efficiency with polyamide thermal breaks, providing some of the lowest U-values on the market.
We know that homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of their U-values and overall thermal efficiency. It’s one of the reasons that we fabricate and supply double and triple glazing for our doors and windows. Depending on the steel look door design you choose, we can have glass thickness between 32mm and 66mm.
With such great thermal efficiency and weatherproofing, these new doors prevent draughts and mould from taking root in the home. Make the right choice on the next installation you make by choosing steel look doors with thermally broken lowered thresholds and greater draught protection.
Environmentally Friendly — One of the things that we love about aluminium is that it is one of the few materials that can be recycled over and over again without losing some of its essential properties. With better environmental standards, like BREEAM, we’re making sure that our materials are responsibly sourced and reduce waste.
Polyester Powder Coating — You probably want to go for that classic black look with steel look doors. However, we do offer more colours. With polyester powder coatings, they stay colourfast for a long time to come. You can even talk to us about our marine grade level weatherproof colours.
Glass Options — We offer laminate glass for our steel look doors. And you can certainly look through our privacy glass samples on the next tab or talk to us about our decorative glass options. Your glass for the steel look door can be as chic or as whimsical as you choose.
Attractive Designs — Look through our options to see which door you’re looking for. We fabricate over 20 elegant designs for steel look doors, including fully glazed doors. So we can provide solid aluminium doors with glass panels of incredible thickness. And choose from our clean hardware options to implement the finishing touches of elegance.
Clean Slimlines — Steel offers incredible slimlines because it’s such a robust material and can carry heavy glass weight. Because aluminium is prized as having an incredible strength to weight ratio, it can create the same beautiful slimlines so that you don’t have to compromise the aesthetics of your choice.
Lowered Thresholds — Choose to meet and exceed government standards when you choose lowered thresholds. Considering rising standards for accessibility, lowered thresholds for your steel look doors mean fewer trip hazards for future users. Knowing that 20% of all households will have to meet wheelchair accessibility in the near future, it just makes sense.
Security Measures — Our steel look doors are accredited to PAS 24 standards so that you can be sure these doors are meeting government guidelines for security. Not to mention that with certain designs, hidden hinge protectors create sturdy security against external impacts. And depending on the design, there are adjustable hinges and lock keeps for easy installation.
A Good Lock Is Not Enough
Our Gold Standard
With an Ultion lock, you get the ultimate protection. This is why we offer them as standard for all of our steel look doors.
You may have heard of their anti snap guarantee, which ensures that you get a £2000 refund if your lock is snapped.
State of the Art
We also believe that their 20 steel pins for anti drill technology, and 11 pins with over 250k key combinations, mean that your lock is virtually impenetrable by picking and drilling.
Furthermore, when you upgrade, you can open and lock your door with your phone, so you’ll never need to worry about leaving your keys behind again.
