aïr Aluminium Doors – Impressive Performance & Captivating Features

Everything’s covered with aïr

With so many aluminium door options available, it’s important to get all the information on performance and features, so that you know you are purchasing the best door for your home. Here’s a run-down of aïr bi-fold and lift & slide door features.


Easy Maintenance

aïr aluminium doors have it all. Slim sightlines, impressive thermal and security performance and sensational aesthetics. What’s more, they are super-low maintenance, so you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying your home and less time cleaning.

Every aïr aluminium door has the latest coating technology to protect the aluminium from the elements and stay looking captivating all year round. There is a range of coating options available, including aïrcoat, the durable, textured, dirt-resistant finish that’s really popular. Our exclusive hardware finishes are fully tested for durability too.

If your doors do need a freshen up, all you need to do is give them a wipe down with a mild solution of soapy water.

Weather Resistance

When you choose wide-span aluminium doors, we know that you need to be certain that they have been engineered to keep the elements out and warmth in. That’s why all aïr aluminium doors have been tested for high wind loads and water tightness.

This means that, come rain, wind or shine, your home stays cosy and warm, even with huge panes of glass.

Testing is measured in pascals (pa). The higher the number, the better the result. You can find weatherproofing test figures on the aïr bi-fold door and aïr sliding door product pages. Or for extra information on the weather performance of our aluminium doors, download a brochure.

Easy Use

aïr aluminium doors use extreme engineering to ensure that they are easy to open and close for years to come. A combination of our specially-designed stainless steel rollers and aïrglide technology ensures that doors glide open effortlessly.

We choose hardware and components that work in harmony with aïr aluminium doors, perfectly combining form and function so that you can open up your home to the garden really easily.

Panes of glass weighing as much as 300kg can be moved with just 2 fingers thanks to our advanced manufacturing techniques and extreme engineering – you can try it for yourself at your nearest aïr showroom.

Safety & Security

Safety and security should always be near the top of a wishlist for any aluminium door. We understand that safety, security and privacy are really important. That’s why we test all aïr aluminium doors to PAS 24. They are also available with Secured by Design, the Police-preferred security specification to give you extra peace of mind.

On top of this, all aïr doors come with the Ultion 3-star lock cylinder as standard. It’s one of the most advance cylinders on the market. It has 11 pins and enters a special lock-down mode that triggers when it detects an attack.

Energy Efficiency

U-Values are a measurement of how much heat is transmitted or lost through building materials. Values are shown in W/m2K. The lower the U-Value, the better the product is at keeping heat inside and cold air outside. So, the lower the U-Value, the more energy efficient the door.

Thermal break technology in aïr aluminium doors helps to keep U-Values low and so do our energy efficient glazed units.

You can find the U-Values of our different door options over on our aluminium bi-fold doors page and our aluminium lift and slide doors pages.


Configuration Options

Every home and every project is different. That’s why aïr aluminium doors offer you a whole range of configuration options, so you can choose the perfect one for you.

If you want to have a glazed wall that can be folded away in fine weather and make your garden an extension of your living area, then an aïr aluminium bi-folding door is for you. If you prefer fewer panes with wider glazed areas, then opt for an aïr aluminium lift and slide door. There are also options for cornerless doors, if your space allows.

aïrglide technology

aïrglide technology is exclusive to aïr aluminium doors. It ensures a smooth opening operations for years to come, so there’s no pulling, heaving or tugging to open and close your doors.

Our aluminium bi-fold doors are manufactured with stainless steel rollers so that the 120kg panes can glide and fold in a super smooth motion.

Aluminium lift & slide doors feature aïrglide lift & slide technology so that sashes weighing as much as 300kg can be moved with just 2 fingers, so opening doors is never a workout. The mechanism also allows lift & slide doors to be safely locked in any position.
