Crittall Style Doors (Georgian Bar)



A timeless design feature, Crittall style windows and doors are growing in popularity.


We’ve all been there… Scrolling Pinterest for inspiration when we’re thinking about upgrading our homes, and how often have you come across the Crittall style in doors, windows, shower panels? More times than you could count on both hands? Thought so!


It was in 1860 that Francis Henry Crittall, an ironmonger in Essex, first used this method to create steel-framed windows. Despite being around for nearly 160 years, Crittall doors, windows and room dividers still feel as contemporary as ever.


Crittall style refers to the black steel or aluminium frame with glass panels. However, priced at about £2,700 sq m, authentic steel Crittall doors are costly.


Aluminium is a much more cost-effective way of installing the Crittall style into your home. Not only does it weigh 67% less than steel (meaning that the aluminium doors are much lighter and easier to operate, which is especially important when using bifold doors), but they’re also much more thermally efficient than steel frames because of the thermal break that is incorporated into Origin’s products. Not to mention the fact that aluminium is very environmentally friendly!


Thin profiling blurs the line between inside and out, creating the illusion of greater living space – perfect for convincing the neighbours your house is bigger than theirs!


With multiple options for size, colour, configuration and security, we are able to create your ideal Crittall style doors at a much more affordable price.
