Anglian focuses more on it’s PVCu products but there is a limited aluminium range for the home. The company does also provide timber windows as well from sustainably-sourced timber.

It’s not clear from the information provided by Anglian, how many of their products are made by them but the company proudly has a Made in Britain message as well as several Kitemarks for it’s products.

Aluminium windows

When it comes to aluminium, their range is more limited compared to other companies providing all types of residential windows in aluminium.

You’ll find standard fixed and casement windows with the option to create bay and bow windows as well. Also in aluminium the company provides secondary glazing.

Sliding patio doors by Anglian Home Improvements

A range or two, three or four panel sliding doors by Anglian provides classically styled doors but with out the lift and slide or more complex options such as structurally bonded. This range is very much intended for replacement door applications.

The products come with the usual glass options such as toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill. 

Bifolding doors by Anglian

For folding sliding doors, Anglian acknowledge the superiority of aluminium for this type of patio door and only offers an aluminium model.

Again these doors are designed for new extensions but with a strong focus on the replacement market with doors only going up to 6.2m wide and a maximum height of 2400mm that’s respectable for a bifold.

Residential doors

You’ll find single doors, French doors, matching side and top panels as well as front doors within the Anglian Home Improvements aluminium doors range.

Their doors are mostly standard residential door design with coupled frames where side or top panels are needed. Front doors are the same product provided with flat or decorative panels. There are also options for aluminium frames and sidelights but using a composite door skin within the aluminium frame.

More information about Anglian aluminium doors and windows

As an information website, wanting to represent all aluminium products, Anglian Home Improvements makes this incredibly difficult. Given the size of the company and it’s well-known name, we’ve been trying to get information on their products for years.

We’d very much like to review their products and give an accurate overview of their features and benefits. And with substantial turnover and reviews not to mention fifty years trading, there’s every reason to do so.

However, the company is more focused on arranging sales appointments rather than being helpful when asking for specific technical drawings, profile arrangement drawings and technical information. They claim this information is only held by their surveyors and nobody else. This simply cannot be true.

We cannot see how a homeowner or an architect with an interest in Anglian products, building a new extension and wanting to look at Anglian’s designs and specifications on paper can do so. Most other brands and manufacturers of aluminium windows and doors in the UK makes this information available to us or others when asked.

We know some products are designed and made by Anglian, we know they have some excellent credentials. What isn’t provided on their aluminium systems is clear information if these are their own extruded, designed and tested systems or whether they use customised profiles from other systems companies.
