As the name suggests, heritage style doors are all about bringing old world character into the now. Regardless of whether you have a period property or a modern new build, the sleek black slimline frames and expansive glass panels that are typical of the style, can really make a statement, both to the exterior and interior of your home.
Originated in Essex, UK in the late 19th century, this style of steel door was reserved for industrial buildings such as factories and public buildings such as the Houses of Parliament where natural light played an important role in illuminating the space.
The difficulty lay in the fact that large single glass panes weren’t a possibility, so structured steel frames were required to add stability. As a result, the industrial style doors that we know and love today were created.
Nowadays, the heavy steel frames of external heritage doors have been replaced with much more lightweight and much more long lasting aluminium, and internal heritage doors are made from premium grade engineered solid oak.
Aluminium heritage style external doors replicate the style perfectly, taking all the good bits of steel doors and removing the faults.
Not only is aluminium a much more environmentally friendly product to manufacture, it’s also naturally resistant to corrosion and warping, and much more energy efficient.
All Climadoor external aluminium heritage doors are of the highest quality, using the latest manufacturing methods and durability tests. With thermally broken frames and low E toughened double glazing as standard - they not only meet but exceed the UK building regulations standard.
The lightweight nature of aluminium steel look doors also means that exterior heritage doors are available in a range of styles, sizes and configurations to perfectly suit your house. Whether it’s a heritage style bifold patio door system you're looking for or you’d prefer steel look French patio doors, the choice is yours.

Questions about Heritage Doors
The term Heritage door refers to a style of door that harks back to doors and windows that were typically found in early 20th century England, particularly in factories and public buildings.
As industrial buildings got bigger, the need to generate as much natural light flow as possible meant that large windows and doors were required, both internally and externally. The ideal solution came with doors and windows made up of a number of square steel frames that would support large glass panels.
Over time, this design filtered into homes and living spaces, and quickly became a favoured interior design feature that typified the elegance of the Art Deco era and the Modernist movement. As the trend progressed, the heritage door was born.
Very much yes! The classic steel door look, with slim black door frames and large glass panels, has long been a favourite among designers and architects.
Despite their colour, this is especially true in those period properties where the need to increase natural light is a must, as this is exactly what they were originally designed for.
By comparison to traditional steel doors, no, heritage doors are not expensive. Steel is an expensive material to produce, therefore making steel doors a pricy option. On the other hand, aluminium steel look doors are much cheaper and the composition of aluminium means it’s also recyclable, more lightweight and naturally corrosion resistant.
Likewise, choosing wooden steel look doors for internal use is much cheaper, as again, timber doors are cheaper to manufacture, easier to maintain and also have better insulating properties - while their appearance still offers all the aesthetic benefits of traditional steel doors.
