On 31st August 2016, Origin launched its latest new product – an aluminium front entrance door.

Called the Origin Residential Door, this contemporary and bespoke front door will be available to the trade from 1st September and rolled out to consumers on 1st October.  The new Origin Residential Door provides a solution for homeowners needing a traditional or modern aluminium front door for their home in a choice of styles, options and colours.

A cohesive look to new aluminium front doors for the home.

The inclusion of a ‘garage door’ option enables properties to have a uniform appearance at the front.

As you would expect from a company like Origin, they have innovated again with their new range of aluminium front doors. One of the selling points of these new bespoke front doors is that they can also be used as a garage door for a consistent appearance at the front of a typical property.

The creation of an aluminium front entrance door provides several benefits over a PVCu or a composite door and one of these is large size doors. This is where Origin has used the aluminium advantage to its full benefit in creating wide and tall double doors that can be utilised in a garage application. The provision of a zero threshold option also does away with any concerns over vehicular access.

The Origin front doors come in a choice of open in or out doors, the addition of sidelights, toplights or combination frames.

35 Panel choices with Residential Front Doors from Origin.

The full door is made from thermally efficient aluminium in the outer frame and door sash. Utilising a polyamide thermal break it provides for an insulated door as well as one that is available in dual colours.

The panels consist of two external skins of aluminium with an insulated core. The panel is a multi-layer arrangement. The construction of the panel is 1.5mm aluminium, 4mm plywood, 21mm of insulation, 4mm ply and 1.5mm aluminium. Origin calls the insulated core of their new doors, Thermimax.

A choice of traditional and modern door designs is on offer in the full range of RAL colours giving over 150 possible colour options. Colour choice becomes more extensive when adding the range of wood effect finishes, dual colours as well as the option for satin, matt or gloss shades.

This broad choice of styles and colour options gives homeowners the chance to have either a traditional or a more ‘statement’ front door and of course the possibility of an aluminium garage door as well.

Origin doors provide designs catered for by composite doors.

The inclusion of traditional door styles is a clever touch by Origin in their new door.

In the range of panel designs are some traditional looking door panels. Those of us in the industry that remember the Monaframe front door with traditional aluminium panels such as the Emerald and Ruby ranges will recall what great sellers these were. They provided a solution for those customers that wanted to benefit from an aluminium front door as well as their new aluminium windows, sliding doors and side doors.

The choice of traditional panels addresses a need for those customers that want all the advantages of a new aluminium front door but in a more conventional and familiar style.

Three threshold options are available with Origin Residential Doors.

The new Origin front door comes with a choice of three threshold options. For a standard front door, there is the weathered or non-weathered option as well as a new, specially designed mobility threshold.

The mobility version is only 20mm high making it suitable as a ramp type threshold for disabled access. It can also be used internally for porch doors or in locations where the door threshold is not exposed.

Security and thermal efficiency with aluminium front doors.

The insulated panel combination will guarantee a door with excellent thermal performance. Added to this is a choice of 8 point multi-point locks or five point locks with the automatic lock option.

Security is a key feature of the new Origin aluminium front door having the latest locks and cylinders, the best in security door hinges and the overall design and construction of the product.

There is a choice of traditional looking lever handles, contemporary architectural bar and pull handles and a wide selection of accessories.

Personalisation Options with the new Origin front entrance door.

a choice of designer handles, lever handles and accessories enables the creation of an individual front door for the home.

Origin promises a bespoke aluminium front door with a choice of personalisation options to create an individual entrance door.  Hardware options come in many styles and finishes. When used in combination with the colour choices brought only by powder coated aluminium, consumers can enjoy an individual front door in far more options than many composite doors provide.

As you would expect from a latest generation aluminium front door, there are hardware and accessory choices such as premium quality handles, door pulls, knockers and spy holes, letter plates, numerals and much more besides.

Origin aluminium residential entrance doors will be rolled out to their network of quality dealers during September 2016. In line with other Origin products, we can expect industry-leading lead times, guarantees and service levels.

I contacted Nick @ ATS for guidance on what aluminium sliding door systems would be suitable for an opening in an extension that is going to be both wide and tall. He came back really quickly with very detailed and incredibly helpful advice. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the systems on the market and their respective features and capabilities. If you’re feeling a bit lost by the overwhelming range of choices out there, I’d definitely recommend contacting him.

After a lot of research to find doors that would meet our unusual size requirements and feeling increasingly uncertain about the best way to spend our small budget, I stumbled on the ATS website, and I'm so glad I did! I contacted ATS to request advice and Nick promptly replied with a wealth of information, providing us with options and relevant contact details. I only wish I'd found them sooner!

I've been so confused about how to achieve the look I'm after, and going round in circles with various window/door companies, trying to get away from the huge chunks of plastic currently around my windows. I didn't expect an email to a company found through a Google search to really help - but I was desperate, so I tried. I'm SO glad I did. Finally I have clear explanations from ATS of where I've been going wrong, exactly what I'm looking for, and a list of local companies that might be able to provide it! The response has excelled my expectations and I feel as if I'm finally inching closer to a home with which I'll be happy and comfortable: thank you.

It is rare that I write reviews, however after my very positive communication with Nick - enquiring about suitable slim sash aluminium windows for my project, I felt that a review was definitely warranted. I can reinforce the many positive reviews posted so far, Nick was very quick to respond, providing comprehensive detail, with excellent independent advice.In summary, great service, thank you Nick.

I dropped Nick at Aluminium Trade Supply an email re high security slim sightline bi-folds and their alternatives and he responded that quickly (and so comprehensively) that I felt bad I’d not paid him for his time!Nick Sir your product knowledge is outstanding and you are providing a level of service that goes wayyyy above and beyond expectations. I’ll definitely make sure I mention Aluminium Trade Supply to anyone I encounter looking for a fenestration solution 🙏🏼

We are looking to replace some old UPVC patios doors with aluminium ones. The ATS website is a great source of advice in an area where clear information is sorely lacking. Having used the website, I then followed this up with a number of specific questions relating to our search, and Nick came back very quickly with clear, detailed and very useful advice.I have been very impressed with both the website and with Nick's advice. My only regret is that I didn't come across ATS before replacing various windows in 2021 - I'm sure it would have saved me a lot of grief and money! Thanks again Nick.

My experience with this firm was exceptionally good and this is notalways the case as a female, dipping a toe into technical waters.I was spoken too with courtesy and at a level that helped me consolidate what was needed .On top of that I was given a list of companies and places where I could obtain the type of product I needed.I could not thank them enough and would certainly go there again and reccommend others do too.
