Double entrance doors in West Hill property - Aspect Windows

Looking for a new aluminium entrance door?

We take a look at the Origin Entrance Door to see how it stacks up.


Recent research shows that 76% of burglars accessed a home through its external door, 31% of which forced a door lock. The Origin Entrance Door is designed with total security in mind: from tamper-proof barrels, PAS24 security testing, 5-point and 8-point locking systems and specially designed hinges, the Origin Entrance Door not only meets security standards, it surpasses them.

Origin barrels are 3-Star British Kite Marked and proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping. What’s more, the Origin Entrance Door can be fitted with the Yale security lever handle, which includes a unique 8-point multipoint lock mechanism with an offset spindle function and chamfered 20mm linear bolts for maximum compression, smooth operation and weather resistance. Finally, 25mm security hooks offer the deepest engagement on the market today.

To offer additional security, the door panels are constructed of aluminium layers and a Thermimax core (thermally efficient as well as secure) and the frames and sash are manufactured from only premium-grade aluminium, which offers superior strength.


The quality of the aluminium used in external doors can vary from system to system, however, with Origin’s aluminium system they only use primary billets of aluminium. This means Origin design, develop and manufacture only high quality aluminium doors, which is instantly visible in the seamless finish.

Why Aluminium?

Aluminium is superior to other materials because it:

  • Is extremely strong and secure, yet weighs 67% less than steel
  • Is very low maintenance, unlike timber which can rot
  • Is energy efficient when combined with a polyamide break, like the Origin Entrance Door
  • Offers the highest level of durability when compared with PVCu and timber
  • Is resilient to the elements, so the frames won’t warp, flex or corrode
  • Offers the same look and feel of timber
  • Is available in a large range of colours, styles and finishes


The best thing about the Origin aluminium entrance door, once you take its strength and security out of the equation? It’s completely bespoke. With 35 innovative and classically-styled panels to choose from, you’re bound to find your ideal fit.

When it comes to choosing the colour of your panel, sash and frame, there are 150 colours to choose from, giving you complete flexibility to express yourself. From Urban Chic to Pop Art to some of their more popular colours. If that wasn’t enough, a dual colour option is also available, allowing you to tailor your door to suit both your home’s exterior and interior look and feel.

The same goes for your letterbox, handle and knocker: we have a wide range of colours and styles available to suit you, all the while offering superior quality and security.

And, if you’re after something a little different, then a mid-rail option is available in either a 60:40 split or a 50:50 split and can accommodate glass on both the top and bottom or a panel can be used for the bottom section if you prefer a little more privacy.

"The whole process has been excellent - I really appreciate the patience you've taken on what is a huge expenditure for a passion project, working with total amateurs! You've always taken the time to answer questions, explain options and crucially, make recommendations when nativity/inexperience clouds our judgement. A real skill and something I personally have really appreciated as I feel confident that we now have windows and doors that complement our house, design and style. Without that level of consultative engagement and relationship I'm confident I would have overlooked details and made a substandard decision. Thank you!"

Mrs Trestain, Padstow

"Just a quick note of thanks to the whole team for our fab windows and doors, we are delighted with both the product and also with the whole fitting process. The lads were brilliant (it's not often you get trades in the house who leave it cleaner at the end of the day than when they arrive in the morning!!) and just quietly got on with the job. Thank you again"

Mr & Mrs Leonard, Exeter

Mr & Mrs Miller, Exmouth

"I wanted to just send my thanks and appreciation. We had an install approx. 6 years ago including some bi-fold doors which in recent weeks appeared to have dropped and became very difficult to lock. I called the office on Monday and a lady took my details and quickly called me back suggesting you had an engineer locally the following day. He arrived and was extremely polite and efficient and diagnosed a broken hinge. He went back to the depot collected the replacement part, then returned to Budleigh and completed the repair. We really appreciate the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with the issue and the ease from a customer perspective. "

Mr Ashby, Budleigh Salterton

"I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you have provided in the planning, removal & installation of our beautiful new windows and doors. We were completely amazed & delighted at the speed of which the installation took place and the hard work put in by the installation team. They worked very efficiently and communicated with me at ease through the week so I knew their plans with each room for installation. All the windows & door look great and we have already had lots of compliments. "

"We would just like to say how excellent the service has been from Aspect Windows from beginning to end. The salesman could not have been more helpful, we felt completely unhurried and un-pressured.
