Architectural Glazing


AP Doors & Toughened Assemblies

We manufacture and install glass door assemblies to suite framed or frameless installations. The assemblies can include a varied mixture of door ironmongery include patch fittings, rails, locks, handles and door openers/closers in various finishes.

The doors are generally manufactured from 12mm thick single toughened safety glass and with varying overall height and widths (please contact for advice on maximum sizes and permissible weights).

We predominantly use WSS fittings which are manufactured in Germany ensuring excellent quality but can use DORMA and CRL fittings if required. We also offer an elegant child safe door pivot finger protection system which is manufactured in house (details available on request).

We offer either manual and automatic glass doors using our "premier-swing 85" or "premier-slide 100" automatic systems.

A.P. doors and toughened glass assemblies are elegant and become a real design feature. The high quality stainless steel fittings with their single – point fixings applied directly on the toughened safety glass meet the highest requirements in terms of visual impact and workmanship. The sets are available in various, variable designs. Aside from the short – type pivot poles, they also include bottom pivot bearings and top pivot fittings with bearing pins and sockets. In order to achieve the appearance of a continuous pivot rod, the short design versions can be connected by means of an intermediate tube, which is cut to length in accordance with the height of the door leaf. The result is a glass wall that excludes the very best in transparency and expansive elegance.
