Original metal doors date back to medieval times, made from wrought iron by blacksmiths. The drawbacks of steel doors came in the form of their weight and cost. Aluminium was only considered and utilised for window manufacturing in the 1950s, as it had become relatively cost-effective as well as being lightweight yet strong, low maintenance and incredibly recyclable.
