Why is it worth choosing an aluminium front door?

When building or renovating a house, developers and architects may be wondering when it is worth deciding on an aluminium front door. In addition to durability, the main argument may be that aluminium can deliver dimensions and solutions that neither wood nor plastics allow.

The front door is the element of a house that we come into contact with most frequently. It is also worth considering that if a guest comes to us, he or she will certainly come into physical contact with this structure. Therefore, it is important that we choose our front door carefully and consider as many aspects as possible. Aluminium solutions, although priced in the high-end categories, prove to be a good choice in the long run, as this material retains its quality, even after decades, and it offers many options in size and combination that could not be accomplished with other materials. Hinge options and automation options are the most abundant among these solutions, so they are the best choice for ‘smart homes’. From a security point of view, premium products may also be installed: face recognition systems, remotely controlled opening / closing solutions, telephone-connected security systems, and, due to its bulkiness, aluminium itself is considered a line of “security”.

Of course, design is also of paramount importance when choosing a front door. Aluminium structures may be combined not only with metal or glass, but also with wood. These composite structures may even be integrated into a more organic-looking house. And aluminium structures provide almost infinite variations in colour and style.

Aluminium curtain wall with arches and large glass surfaces
Aluminium curtain wall with arches and large glass surfaces
The design was one of the biggest challenges in the production and installation of the aluminium doors and windows of the Reformed Kindergarten in Svábhegy, since more than 700 individual solid angles had to be calculated to create the aluminium curtain wall, which was not only a segmental arch, but also broken at the bottom and top edges. We talked about this process with Zoltán Erdélyi, KAV’s senior engineer.

The market for shading in Hungary
Although, in the past, residential properties tended to be built in Hungary without shading, today it is a priority in the design process. Due to climate change, it is just as important for property to provide an optimal thermal performance in the summer period as it is during winter. For this reason, KAV began designing customised shading. Of course, when introducing an innovation, we need to take into account the nature of the Hungarian market. KAV’s Managing Director, Károly Lovász, talks about the most exciting developments.

Architectural design of aluminium doors and windows in our time
The aim of the KAV team is to provide our customers with all the solutions for their unique doors and windows needs, whether it may be a minimal window, a frameless sliding door, an aluminium front door, a blind or even a curtain wall. Most customers start looking for windows when they already have the finished designs, but we increasingly often see, during the consultations, that these designs are not detailed enough. We talked about the correlation between architectural designs and the door and window solutions with Csaba Mravik, KAV Hungária’s chief development engineer of.

Wind pressure is the biggest challenge for doors and windows designed for Iceland
Our company, is involved in the doors and windows solutions of the Marriott Hotel, being built near Harpa, one of the symbolic buildings of Reykavík. The Icelandic architecture and the weather conditions on the island require different systems from the ones we are used to at home, so the KAV team has also built a prototype for this work, taking into account, among others, the installation and insulation aspects. Details were given by Norbert Kiss, architect consultant and Csaba Mravik, chief development engineer.

Aluminium doors and windows with custom solutions
The founding of KAV Hungária was also triggered by an innovative idea: why not introduce aluminium doors and windows to the family home market? Since then, our own developments, individual solutions, needs assessment and construction work organisation have become the defining elements of the company. Károly Lovász, the managing director of KAV, Gábor Csóti, the founder of the Gamechangers community and Kálmán Szabó, the host of the podcast by the Association for Excellence Public Benefit Association, spoke about innovation, the underlying managerial thinking and organisational structure.

The evolution of closing systems in Hungary
If one spends many years in a specialised technical segment, sometimes answering questions from a professional interviewer will inadvertently recall the period from the beginning to the present. Studying the evolution of window and door products used in residential buildings is also instructive, because fashion always changes along with demand and financial opportunities. Everyone sees the past differently - we, Hungarians are special in this - but sales figures outweigh perceptions.

The relationship between unique doors and windows and interior design
Unique windows and glass walls are playing an increasingly important role in modern family homes, so working together requires a different approach from both designers and window-door professionals than it did a few years ago. According to Csaba Finta, interior designer and art director of MYD-II, it is important that architects and interior designers take this aspect into account during the planning stage.

Aluminium windows and doors also play a prominent role in Norwegian architecture, not only in public construction, but also in residential buildings and condominium investments. The long-term goal of KAV is, after Iceland, to gain experience in Norway, so it applied for admission to the Hungarian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (MNKK).

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.

Most domestic companies selling aluminium doors and windows do not have their own production capacity. However, in KAV's imposing manufacturing plant, they are able to resolve even seemingly impossible profile connections. This is where further thought-out versions of Schüco or Reynaers profile elements and completely unique door and window solutions are manufactured, designed and developed by KAV engineers.
