Origin launches its new aluminium residential door

residential-door-2Origin has unveiled its latest product launch – the Origin Residential Door – where security and aesthetics are innovatively combined. Available in the UK to trade from 1st September 2016, or consumers from 1st October 2016, the Origin Residential Door can either be used as a front or garage door for an integrated front of house look.

Manufactured with a high-grade aluminium, there are 35 panel choices on offer, available in over 150 different RAL shades; the Residential Door has been designed with heightened security and thermal efficiency in mind, with no compromise on kerb-appeal.

Ben Brocklesby, Origin’s Sales and Marketing Director, comments: “Innovation is engrained within the Origin culture, and the new Residential Door is no exception. There is always a way to make something work better, and our in-house R&D department has worked relentlessly to engineer the Origin Residential Door. It’s been a challenge to keep the new product under wraps, but now the idea is a reality, we are absolutely delighted.”

Sharing some of the same great technology as the renowned Origin Bi-fold Door and Windows, the Residential Door enables a truly cohesive look, inside and out, to be created. Available in a huge range of styles, it allows homeowners to create the perfect statement door that is tailored beautifully to their home.

Front of House Unity (Front or Garage Door)

Available as a front door (either as a single or French Door) or a garage door (French Door), means that homeowners can achieve a complete front of house integrated look, with the best in style, security as well as performance.

When used as a garage door, it can be specified with no threshold for seamless access inside and out. In terms of threshold options, there are three available – weathered, non-weathered, or the specifically designed mobility threshold, standing at just 20mm when the doors are open. These are, therefore, ideal for disabled access, internal use such as porches or flats, or exterior doors that aren’t highly exposed to the elements.

Panel Choices

With over 35 panel choices, ranging from traditional to ultra-modern, there is a style guaranteed to suit any property. Matching decorative panels can also be added as sidelights; alternatively, Origin Windows can be incorporated to the side or top as flags, ensuring it can fit into any aperture.

Thermal Efficiency

Combining style with thermal performance, the Origin Residential Door has been expertly engineered for optimum energy efficiency. Both the frame and sash feature an advanced polyamide break to limit heat transfer from the interior to the exterior, whilst the panel is manufactured with a highly efficient Thermimax core and aluminium layers for optimum thermal performance.


The Origin Residential Door has been designed with heightened security at the forefront. From the locks and barrels, through to the hinge design and aluminium composition, all combine to make for an ultra-secure system.

Two different locking systems are available; a 5-point multipoint lock, or Origin’s industry-leading 8-point multipoint locking system, with an offset spindle function for complete security performance.

Additionally, Origin offer two barrel choices, both of which are 3 Star British Kite Marked, proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, offering homeowners a proven defense that is second to none.

All of this, on top of the innately robust and strong aluminium profile and panel composition, with specifically designed hinges provides complete peace of mind and unsurpassed security.


As with all Origin products, the Origin Residential Door is completely bespoke, meeting the highest standards of style, security and craftsmanship.

The levels of personlisation is vast, from the size of the door, right through to the colour and handle choice allowing the end customer to design a true statement piece, giving the first clue to a home’s character.

An extensive colour palette with over 150 different RAL shades, ranging from bright primary shades to earthy tones, is guaranteed to offer inspiration to homeowners. With a dual colour option also available on the frame, sash and the panel, it means the exterior colour can complement the building style, while the interior can suit the internal colour scheme.

Helping further broaden the design possibilities, the Residential Door offers a tailored range of premium quality handles and door pulls, unique door-knockers, spyholes and letterboxes.


Origin exclusively manufactures its own systems in the UK, ensuring the greatest level of control over the product’s quality. At each stage of the manufacturing process, the Origin Residential Door undergoes rigorous quality checks to ensure it leaves the company’s state-of-the-art factory at a consistently unparalleled standard.

Combining precision engineering, expert manufacturing techniques and premium-grade aluminium, allows Origin to offer an industry leading 20-year guarantee on its doors and windows.

Brocklesby adds: “The Residential Door will enhance our extensive portfolio of doors, windows and blinds. We work very hard to be at the top of our game, and we’re very proud of the high quality products and unbeatable service that we offer. The fact we are a British manufacturer helps us stand out from the crowd even further.

The Origin Residential Door will of course be supported by the usual great service that installers have come to know and expect from us – we’ll continue to invest in young talent, new materials, and ideas to ensure our products keep innovation alive within the industry.”
