Crittall style internal doors and room dividers are among the hottest trends in modern interior design that have more than survived the pandemic in which they thrived. They have remained a firm favourite among homeowners and interior designers for ‘zoning’ and creating multifunctional living areas.
We recently installed three sets of bespoke Crittall style internal doors and room dividers into a gorgeous detached property in Windsor.
Over the years, the owners of the stunning detached property have completed a scheme of modernisations to transform this building into the perfect family home.
The family home is situated within a sought-after residential street on the outskirts of the historic Windsor town centre and Windsor Castle.
It had been five years since our clients purchased aluminium doors and windows from us! As a small independent family business, customer satisfaction is important to us, so we were delighted that the Windsor homeowners chose to return to us for an internal glazing solution.
As part of the redesign of the interior layout, our clients were looking to divide the open plan living space area without compromising on natural light or space.
When the owners contacted Thames Valley Windows in September 2020, they had a clear vision of the internal doors and glass partitions they wanted. Part of their brief was for a modern architectural glazing solution with sound insulation.
Their home renovation project was driven by the current hybrid working and living situation, making them rethink the open plan living arrangements. They were looking to divide their open plan study and the second workspace with a glass room divider and also replace the existing wooden frame glass partitions with the same style of glazing.
Their aluminium frame windows had been designed in art deco Crittall style; they were keen for a similar look for internal glazing.
Our designer Marcus contacted the homeowners, and after listening to their ideas for their home improvement project. He discussed the specification of our Aluco Elegance range of steel look internal doors and partitions. This timeless, innovative glazing system ticked all the boxes of the homeowners brief and is perfect for all types of internal partitioning.
The Windsor homeowners were happy and confident with the products Marcus had recommended and placed their order.
After a couple of weeks, one of our surveyors visited the property to take the final measurements before placing the order with Aluco.
The steel look internal door and partitions replicate the iconic Crittall® steel doors with all the period features offer minimalist sightlines, maximum glass area, and exceptional performance.
Aluco industrial style doors and room dividers are designed and manufactured in the UK. Constructed from 100% solid chambered aluminium extrusion with no thermal break and hand welded to bespoke requirements.
Handcrafted with the finest attention to detail, all corner joints are glued and crimped for strength.
In February, our installation team arrived at the Windsor property to remove the existing fixed doors and screens and installed the Crittall style internal doors and room dividers promptly and professionally.
Marcus worked with the homeowners to bring their vision to life and designed an internal glazing solution to enhance their contemporary interior decor.
The Crittall style internal doors and partitions have been finished in the ever-popular powder coated RAL9005 Matt Black, which emphasises the’ steel’ look and offers a high-quality finish.
For an authentic heritage feel, the single doors have been designed with butt hinges.
Single glazed clear 4mm toughened acoustic glass panels was selected to achieve the soundproof performance required.
The overall result is an attractive and stylish solution to define separate zones with privacy within the Windsor family home while complimenting the overall colour scheme and furniture.
The black metal single doors and partitions offer a luxurious industrial edge to add a ‘Newstalgic’ twist to the modern interior décor.
Unlike mid-century modern and vintage interior trends, Newstalgia is created by mixing up products from different eras. It offers a fusion of old and new creating familiar memories of days gone by while blending in modern design.

They also offer a range of exterior windows and patio doors, from French doors to bi-folding and sliding doors, providing a 21st-century solution with the advanced benefits of durability, security, and performance.
