What designs and styles are available with front doors?
Aluminium doors provide solutions whatever the property style, door opening or style.
Our current range provides doors, opening in or out. As well as this there are double door options.
For slightly larger door openings, aluminium doors offer matching side lights, top lights and even integrated opening windows within these for extra ventilation.
As well as using front doors as the main entrance to the property, these work equally well within a new front porch. There's also the option of a fully glazed model, a midrail and glass or solid panels.
For pet-flaps, several designs with a bottom solid panel incorporate these too.
Functionality is also taken care of with the option of a low threshold and all manner of locks and handles for convenience.
For the door panels, there are two types of aluminium front door designs.
The Origin front door uses a simplified, yet highly effective arrangement of a door panel glazed into the door just like a piece of glass. The overall effect is a beautiful door set without the complexity or cost of other doors.
For an alternative design, Smart Systems Designer front door offers an alternative panel construction seamlessly glazed within the door profiles for a flush and more 'timber-like' appearance.
Three styling choices ensure homeowners and builders get the right design for property projects.
Modern Door Range.
Choose this range of modern homes, new build properties, flats and apartments. These come in the popular contemporary styles, bold looks and ideal as 'statement-piece' front doors.
Traditional Door Range.
Where the property demands more traditional doors and many replicating classic door designs, choose the traditional range.
These come inspired by Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian entrance doors.
Cottage Door Range.
Character properties, cottages, terraced houses and many other homes benefit from this timeless range.
Another traditionally inspired range, reflecting the classic style in older 1920s and 1930s Art Deco doors.
All Dorsia products come with excellent security, insulation and reliability.

Information and advice about new aluminium front doors
Homeowners and builders choosing new front doors for their projects need to consider the following important points when buying.
Think about the property style and whether the door needs to blend with it. Of course, there's nothing wrong with contrasting and bold designs within character properties. Generally speaking a front door should standard out but also work well with the overall look of the project.
Aluminium offers the most diverse choice of colours. Compared to timber, composite and PVCu doors, there's no better choice.
As well as a standard solid range of colours, aluminium doors offer more. One is a textured range with a more tactile appearance. Where you want the benefits of aluminium yet need a wood effect, here too aluminium offers woodgrain aluminium finishes.
Security and Living with the doors.
When choosing new aluminium front doors, you get several options for locking and general functionality.
For the door accessories, there's little not available with aluminium doors that you get on front doors with other materials.
Door numbers, door knockers, spy-holes, letterboxes and door chains. You get all these with aluminium.
It's worth thinking about how the door will work when opening, closing and locking. Aluminium doors come with the familiar lever/lever lock arrangement of other doors.
As well as this, there's a range of manual or automatic locking options. If the architectural bar handles are desirable, these work with mechanical or automatic door locks.
