Gerda Gets Going

Steel doors on display

Just launched in the UK, Gerda steel and aluminium front entrance doors offer high performance levels, construction methods and materials and a high security alternative to conventional composite doors – along with thermal efficiency.

Gerda will have a significant presence at the FIT Show.

The doors are distributed exclusively in the UK by Pioneer Trading, a company that has been manufacturing windows and doors for more than 30 years.

A large selection of colours and designs have been chosen to suit the tastes of British homeowners. Four ranges will be available initially - Optima, Thermopremium, Thermoprime and Altus. All share the Gerda emphasis on sustainability, security and thermal efficiency, with weather performance developed for some of the toughest conditions in Europe.



The doors offer thermal transmittance as low as 0.74 W/m2K for solid doors and 0.81 W/m2K for glazed doors. The Altus door boasts a 90mm depth, three chamber reinforced aluminium internal construction with PU cores, with Fuhr multi-point security lock and hardware located into reinforced aluminium outer frames.


 “We have been searching for some time for an alternative high-performance front entrance door solution. We have found Gerda by some margin to be the best range that we have seen.”

Ahead of the market

“They offer security and thermal performance, coupled with a build-quality ahead of anything else currently offered at similar price levels in the UK,” continues Pioneer Trading’s Williams. “The construction techniques and materials used in the manufacture ensure that distortion and other quality issues that have become so characteristic of conventional composite doors will simply not be an issue.”

Founded over 35 years ago, Gerda is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of high security products including door locks, padlocks and bicycle locks, topped by its extensive range of residential doors.


FIT Show

“Gerda doors have to be seen, tried and tested to appreciate the combination of performance and aesthetics and the FIT Show offers the perfect opportunity to see what we believe is a real game-changer,” adds Williams.
