Residential Axis Entrance Doors
New APL 2019 Specifier Guide now available Order now

Made from aluminium with vertical tongue and groove planks, Axis doors offer the opportunity for a totally clean aesthetic or a door with glazed inserts for vision or light entry.

The two-part construction offers the opportunity for a dual colour panel — one colour for the outside and a different one for the inside to match interior colour schemes. Axis doors are thermally broken. The solid, foam-filled construction imparts high strength and jemmy resistance.

Key Features
  • For mainstream residential use
  • Tongue and groove panel doors clad in aluminium for low maintenance
  • Panels are 41mm thick and tall heights up to 3000mm are possible depending on the site exposure 
  • Two-part (interior/exterior) construction allows a different colour each side to match interior and exterior colour schemes 
  • Thermal breaks and polystyrene fill included in the door construction enhance thermal efficiency
  • Authentic and hard wearing wood grain appearance available, as well as powder coat and anodised finishes
