The market for commercial doors continues to be a buoyant one with many trade manufacturers reporting healthy order books for this product. Specified correctly only a commercial door is suitable for shops, schools, office buildings or anywhere that requires a reliable entrance door. PVC entrance doors have only been designed for dwellings and are simply the wrong product to install in a high traffic environment.  And that’s where the GT55 Commercial Aluminium Door from ALuk excels.

AluK has launched the GT55 Thermally Broken aluminium commercial door system which is introduced as one of the strongest thermally broken commercial door systems currently available on the market.

The GT55 commercial aluminium door from AluK has undergone full testing and can be integrated with AluK’s GT55 ground floor treatment system. It can also be installed as a stand alone door.

As is typical of commercial aluminium doors they are strong, low maintenance and is compatible with a wide range of entrance door hardware such as access control systems, wide colour choice and suitable for automation if needed.
