At Direct Trade, we pride ourselves on being able to offer you bold and timeless designs. That’s why we fabricate and supply elegant steel doors. When you look through our gallery, you’ll see that we’ve incorporated steel doors in just about every home style imaginable, from minimalist designs to period homes. We have been an established business for over 20 years.
Steel Doors aren’t just the smart choice. They’re an investment in the future. Because it’s such a robust material, steel doors can last the next 50 years. They’re rust resistant and incredibly durable, which is why they make such a great investment. Plus, we always offer multiple different designs for our steel doors.
Talk to us about whether you’re looking for single or double doors, or if you’re interested in our steel style entry doors. Our steel doors use the same frames as our steel partitions, so you can easily create a uniform design throughout the house when you choose both.
We know that our clients are looking for luxurious high end products. So we’ve started fabricating, and supplying steel doors. They’re long lasting, attractive, and extraordinarily strong. Moreover, you’re getting the best designs and quality materials when you choose these exclusive doors.
One of our most attractive designs that you may have seen featured on Great Designs is our pivot door. With a steel pivot door, you make a statement. This bold, eye catching design is the ultimate selection in home decorating choices, along with our roof lanterns, and shaped windows.
These visually stunning doors have many benefits. For starters, their wide apertures make it easy to move heavy furniture in and out. And, when thinking about security standards, their heft provides protection from hard impacts.
Without a frame, they create wide open views for homeowners, and the wide aperture offers incredible ease of egress for multiple people in case of fire escape.
At Direct Trade Windows, our steel look doors from Smart offer a minimalist style while also boasting outstanding thermal efficiency and some of the lowest U-values on the market. With our steel look doors, you’re benefitting from modern and chic designs, and an easy to install and cost-effective product.

Long Lasting Investment — Steel doors can last as long as 50 years. And we know that they’re the strongest material on the market, which means that they can handle hard wear from pets and children. With this long lasting material, homeowners get the best insurance on their investment.
Yale Hardware — Homeowners and installers can always increase the security of a home with Yale hardware. Though our steel doors come with your choice of turn handles, pull handles, and doorknobs, you can always upgrade to improve the door defences. We make sure that we offer Yale with both our installation and supply.
Deep Matt Powder Coating — Maintain the distinctive look of steel doors in style. When you’re looking for the colours of these doors, we can offer several RAL and NCS shades. You can choose either our deep matt or deep matt with pearl mica effect. These colours are stable under extreme heat conditions.
Designs — For our customers, we offer single doors, double doors, and pivot doors. Our doors can be fitted to our steel partitions as well, for a uniform chic design. These doors are highly customisable, and when you contact our Slough team, we’ll be able to walk you through all of our design options.
Glazing Standards — At Direct Trade we use double glazing for most of our windows and doors. But we always offer you the option of triple glazing. And steel is robust enough to handle triple glazing and incredible glass weight. We’ll be able to fabricate these doors to your glass needs.
Lowered Thresholds — When we install your steel doors, we’ll be able to ensure that you get a lowered threshold. This can be an important first step in reducing tripping hazards in a home. And it also makes sure that homeowners meet rising government standards for accessibility.
Thermally Broken — We ensure that these doors are thermally broken, reducing heat transfer from the home. That way, homeowners can keep their energy ratings low and retain excellent insulation throughout. Plus, it’ll help reduce heating bills in the long run. And since steel is a highly durable material, there’s no worry about warping or draughts.
At Direct Trade Windows, our commitment to excellence is reflected in our exceptional customer satisfaction.
We take great pride in our impressive 4.9 rating on Google, a testament to the unparalleled quality and service we offer.
We had been severely let down by a previous supplier, but when we turned to Direct Trade Windows for help, we hit the jackpot. Helping us to transform a residential development in Hersham, they supplied us with high-quality, ultra-slim Cortizo sliding doors, complete with the bespoke sliding options that we needed. Our requirements were very specific and not readily available on the market, but Direct Trade Windows really went the extra mile to help us out, coming through with quality products and excellent service. We will definitely be using their services again.

Nothing but praise for this outfit. It was a pleasure to work with them. It was a nerve-wracking undertaking for us, the biggest single expense to fit three large window/french door combos in our extension, yet the team made it a relatively relaxing experience with their professionalism and good humour. Thank you all so much for everything you and the whole team have done to get from the initial sale (well done Hash!) to the fun visit we made to the workshop, to the design and its multiple iterations (thank you Taz!) and finally to the installation. Thoroughly recommended.

Direct Trade recently replaced a large, faulty sky light. They said they’d take 3 hours, they took two. They did a fantastic job, there was absolutely NO dust or mess, at all. I was amazed… thought I’d be clearing up dust for days! I also didn’t need to get the recess re-plastered or painted – bonus!
I highly recommend Direct Trade. They are a professional and friendly service delivering a high quality product.

I met with Taz at the warehouse to see some examples of the glazing and from the beginning he was extremely professional, personable and helpful. We ordered crittal style windows and doors, a Juliet door, 3 other windows and roof lights and every one of them was excellent quality, secure and well made. I highly recommend Taz and his team at Direct Trade Windows!
