how it all began
Since 1994 we have grown to be one of the most respected supplier of aluminium and wooden windows and doors in South Africa.
We discount windows and doors without compromising on quality, and ensuring you receive the absolute best value and correct choice of glass for optimum energy ratings.
a bit of history
Originally known as Window and Door Warehouse we changed the name to Windoor Africa (Pty) Ltd in 2009. Service, being able to manufature products quickly and efficiently whilst maintaining a high standard of quality is what we are known for. Being able to supply solutions to nearly every challenge is how we became know as the specialists of choice for complicated environments.
With the combination of supplying standard products and being able to supply top quality joinery and aluminium doors and windows, showers and more, the recipe for success was set. This brought about the need to innovate and design products that were more cost effective and superior in design and construction.
We have manufactured for projects in Dresden, Germany (over 400 custom panel doors), Nigeria (First Bank Head Office - over 200 custom made two hour fire doors) and supplied to Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Seychelles and all over South Africa and are fast becoming the point of call for sliding folding and stacking units, custom joinery, bi-fold doors, interior folding units, and even arched aluminium windows and doors.
We have supplied and consulted to many hotel groups seeking solutions and quality products both in South Africa and in Africa, and abroad.
The first company to offer an online catalogue of windows and doors in South Africa in the 1990's, and then to offer online purchasing in 2009.
The first company to manufacture and keep in stock the Victorian Happy Door, thus introducing this product as a standard item which is now supplied by every door manufacturer in South Africa.
The first company to manufacture and stock the Open Pane Happy Door, now the most requested panelled patio door today and manufactured as standard by all major manufacturers.
The first company to manufacture a Mock Sash Window with a friction hinge, allowing for more user friendly operation, and far more ventilation. We used the Swartland Box mock sash as an example, re-designed it and made it more cost effective. Our design was adopted by all manufacturers and is considered the blueprint for every Mock Sash Window on the market today (that uses a friction hinge, of course).
The first supplier to bring out a comprehensive catalogue encompassing all available stock products, from a multitude of suppliers, in one publication. Entire supplier catalogues of windows and doors and door frames was also available in that publication - purely to simplify and make the process of selection more user friendly and to allow comparison of like products.
apart from the best prices, this is why else...

Personal attention, experience far beyond selling, and in-depth product knowledge ensures you need make only one call.

Service is of utmost importance to us. Should you receive a product that does not meet your expectations, then we have failed.

There are many factors that influence guarantees with wooden products, so it is up to you as the home owner, contractor or buyer to be aware of your responsibilities towards yourself, your client or your employer!
