Heritage doors

Our art-deco style, thermally broken aluminium door systems are ideal for period properties or for adding character to new-build and contemporary homes. The neo-industrial appearance is one of the latest trends in the glazing industry.

Steel look Crittall style heritage doors

IDSystems range of aluminium heritage doors offers the perfect solution for replacing traditional steel doors with a highly engineered, thermally broken aluminium alternative - whilst keeping slim frames and a sleek profile.

The neo-industrial appearance owes a lot to tradition, with the original style dating back to the 1880s before becoming hugely popular during the art deco era of the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Traditional Features Icon

Traditional design

Our heritage doors provide an aluminium alternative to traditional narrow-framed steel doors. Their elegance and style are ideal for any period home.

Feature icon

Versatility

Predominantly utilised as French doors with a set of sidelights, the system can be designed and configured to meet your exact requirements. They can be installed as a single door or double doors, used internally or externally and can even be utilised as an internal room divider.

Thermal Quality Icon

Building Regulations Document L compliant

Unlike traditional steel windows and doors where the profile is typically a single piece of metal and therefore allows for cold bridging between the exterior and interior surfaces of the frame, our Heritage Doors are manufactured from thermally broken aluminium with a polyamide thermal break between the inside and outside of the frame. As a result the system is able to provide vastly superior thermal performance, with low U-values from just 1.5W/m²K, exceeding the requirements of Building Regulations Document L.

Aesthetic appeal

The design of our Heritage Doors is all about the aesthetic appeal and whether you opt for French, bifold or sliding doors each one of our heritage door configurations features frames that give the doors the much sought-after look.

Weather Icon

Weather protection

Our Heritage Doors are independently tested to Class 4 (600Pa) air permeability and Class 9a (600Pa) water tightness to ensure superior protection from wind and rain compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

Bifold, sliding or French door configurations

Our heritage doors can be configured to your exact requirements, whether you are looking for a single set of French doors with or without sidelights, a set of heritage bifold doors to completely open up an aperture or our heritage sliding doors which are perfectly suited for larger openings.
