Trusted Partner: ABL Doors


ABL doors was founded when Andy Williams, previously of the UK’s largest door slab manufacturer Premdor, spotted a frustration in the housing development market with the way that doors were sourced and fitted. He noticed that the existing way the UK development market worked when it came to door hanging was slow, expensive and inaccurate. Taking inspiration from continental Europe and the USA, he decided to pursue the idea of precision-hanging doors in a factory setting, and simply installing a full, pre-hung doorset, consisting of frame, slab & furniture.

With access to over 4,000 styles of door from the UK’s leading manufacturers, ABL are able to source door slabs to any specification. Whether you are looking for a popular design of internal door to fulfil a large housing development, or a very specific, high-end design to satisfy the most discerning of client, ABL can provide you with the perfect combination of frame, door slab and door furniture.

Andy and ABL Doors have been a customer of Astra Door Controls for many years now and have used our Hydraulic concealed door controls on a number of different residential projects for both Social Housing and ‘high end’ residential projects. 


Denham Film studios

 A film studio frequented by stars including Greer Garson and David Niven has been converted into a decadent Art Deco-inspired apartment complex in Buckinghamshire.

ABL were tasked with supplying a unique range of cutting edge door designs in the most modern finishes that also complimented the developments’ retro aesthetic. It was incredibly important for ABL to achieve an effective balance of new and old, alongside the aims of the designers and architect team. Working with both parties ABL were able to achieve a beautiful blend of two vastly different eras, accomplishing an unusual but distinctive finished product.  ABL used the Astra 3000 series as they are fully concealed when the door is closed yet they comply with all building and fire regulations.
