Internal Doors and Screens

The current range of aluminium internal doors and screens is designed to provide a new look to interior spaces, with the same slim sightlines, contemporary or industrial styling and colour choices available with aluminium. Internal doors and screens come in several door types and window options, with the added benefit of numerous design, hardware and glass options.

Why choose internal doors and screens

In aluminium, internal doors and screens provide an altogether different aesthetic internally. Significantly thinner than timber doors, cheaper than steel doors and also coming in all glass, minimal frame or frameless designs. These types of doors also come in a wide variety of steel-inspired designs, such as Art-Deco, Heritage and Industrial found in exterior doors and windows.

Internal aluminium doors buying guide and advice

Simpler to buy than exterior doors and windows, our buying guide tells you what you need to know when choosing aluminium internal doors or screens.

Quality across aluminium internal doors and screens is consistent across all the different products. Aluminium profile quality, the application of the colour finish, glass and hardware. All these features meet similar specifications, therefore giving peace of mind when understanding the makeup of the product.

Compared with wooden interior doors, hardboard doors, medium-density fibreboard (MDF), solid or hollow core. All these materials provide a different weight, price point, feature set and style.

Simple to fit, easy to buy and now widely available with quality door and window companies, aluminium now provides an alternative and highly sought-after solution to the traditional internal door materials.

The only area where aluminium does not provide a suitable product is where a fire rating is required.

Information about internal doors, windows and screens.

Aluminium internal doors and screens provide more opening options than other materials as well as options not available in timber or steel. Another advantage is sizes, with wider and taller doors also better in aluminium.

Sightlines are by far the biggest advantage. Door profiles start from minimal dimensions on all glass doors to around 35-70mm overall sightlines on opening doors.

Whilst still using quality aluminium profiles and glass, internal products usually don’t need the features found on similar exterior doors and windows.

Thermal insulation, high security, weather protection, double glazing and energy efficiency aren’t usually required with these products. Therefore, they tend to come at cheaper prices and also faster delivery times. They are usually easier to make than exterior glazing too.

Most aluminium-framed products use a similar construction with mitred corner joints at the frames and doors, and without the welded complexity or cost of steel products.

Single glass provides a cheaper alternative to exterior doors, although double glazed options are available when privacy, acoustics or enhanced security is required.

Advantages of using internal doors and windows in aluminium

Choose internal doors, windows, room dividers or fixed screens in aluminium and there are several benefits, only these products can deliver.

Slim sightlines are the key feature, with only steel products being marginally thinner. Aluminium components also allow the use of more glass, with many internal doors and screens coming with glass edges and only the essentials for metal components.

The choice of opening options, sizes and designs is also greater with aluminium. Hinged, sliding, folding, stacking or sliding into walls. Pivot internal doors are another recent innovation, offering wider and taller doors than hinged versions with an innovative opening and closing action.

The ability to use the same exterior doors windows and screens inside the home, allows product matching, something not usually desirable with PVCu.

Other than the genuine steel product, there’s no other material than aluminium for recreating industrial, heritage, Art-Deco and Scandi glazing.

Where you can use internal doors and screens

The current trend for slim framed glass doors and internal screens means these products are suitable for numerous uses, not just regular doorways.

Internal doors between rooms are the most obvious solution. However, choose the right product and these doors work in bathrooms, shower rooms and cloakrooms. You can divide a hallway or a larger room creating insulation, separation and clearly defined spaces.

When it comes to creating a room divider, these door types provide hinged, sliding, folding or stacking solutions. The same products also work especially when dividing a conservatory.

More recently, specialist installers are providing internal doors and screens to wine cellars, wardrobe doors, staircase doors creating storage space and even shower screens.

Prices and specifications vary from product to product. Some companies specialise only in interior glass products, others are provided by quality home improvement and glazing firms.

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.
