Our aluminium shopfronts are robust, versatile and strong. There is a variety of window options to suit a number of purposes, whether it’s for high street retail shops, commercial aluminium doors and or shopping centre entrances.

Aluminium remains a popular choice for shop fronts and doors because it is durable, lightweight and high-strength. It is also highly resistant to corrosion caused by industrial pollutants.

When planning and making a decision about how you will present your business to the public, an aluminium shop front should be something to consider.

It is virtually maintenance free and is effective across a range of geographical regions and climatic conditions. It stands up to the elements like rain, sleet, ice and snow.

What are the benefits of choosing an external aluminium door?
Aluminium doors are durable and capable of withstanding everyday usage, within environments of low or high traffic. A polyester finish is baked onto the aluminium profiles to create a high quality, robust and durable finish, which can withstand all the rigours of UK weather conditions. Each of the 213 RAL colour options are available in a gloss or matt finish. They can also include perimeter sealing and a threshold to reduce heat loss as well as self-closing.
Why do you need to carry out a site survey and not give me a standard price for an installation?
During a site survey we will discuss your requirements, design a system which complements your building and surroundings. Due to the cost implications of materials the size of opening, glass specification and type of door system would affect the price. The users of the system be taken into account and a full risk assessment needs to be carried out to ensure that it is safe, reliable and easy to use. We would only provide a system which we would offer a service contract agreement upon to give you piece of mind and warranty.
If I have an existing aluminium door and need it to be automated to make it more accessible can you give me a quotation?
Yes, if you could send us an e-mail to with internal and external photos of the door, dimensions and your activation requirements, but ideally, we need to carry out a free site survey, contact us here to arrange
Why is it important to carry out a risk assessment?
A risk assessment will highlight any risks during the installation and take into account the operation, users and specify any safety devices which may be required. On completion of this any risks need to be either eliminated or reduced to a safe level. Examples are out of hours working, selecting self-closing, Covid procedures, specifying safety glass, manual handling equipment, locking.

“After having a disappointing response from our door installers I looked for an alternative solution and found BH Doors and Engineering on-line. I spoke to David and he arranged to come within a couple of hours and arrived when he said he would. He could not have been more thorough or conscientious, and once he finished our door was working better than it ever had! Thank you David – one of our customers described you as the ‘door doctor’!”
