A high quality aluminium shopfront can improve the area and improve the desirability of your shop.  Whilst the safety and security is an important factor, your shopfront also needs to be aesthetically pleasing to encourage more customers or clients through your doors, but security measures do not have to be unattractive.

How much does an aluminium shopfront cost?

There are many styles and choices available when deciding on a shop front.  Like any product that is bespoke the cost of an aluminium shopfront will obviously vary according to the size of the windows and complexity of the design. In addition there are many different commercial door styles available which again affect the overall cost. We have a wide range of shopdoor styles available and are confident we can find a design that suits your shop.

Health & Safety when fitting a shop front.

With our experience and knowledge of the building regulations and our accreditations your project will be safe in our hands. We can work outside normal hours if necessary.  We’ve recently worked installed large panels of glass at height in Sheffield City centre early on a Sunday morning, whilst the police organised a road closure.  They say the city never sleeps!

Glass for shopfronts

Our glass units are manufactured off site by leading glass suppliers. All our standard units are soft coat low emissivity and argon filled giving good ’U’ values to meet current regulations. We can also provide specialist glasses for extra security, solar requirements or sound reduction all per your requirements.

We can also provide low iron glass for your shopfront.  Low iron glass is a clearer glass ( doesn’t have a green tint) and if you wish to have a touch screen mounted on your window – for use outside hours, then this is the glass to choose.  We are currently installing a shopfront for an estate agent which has a screen behind – so visitors can view houses for sale on their website from outside the shop.
