Doorways Architectural is a premier architectural solutions provider to the commercial, education, health, housing retail and leisure sectors of the construction industry.

Doorways Architectural's ironmongery, access control and door automation business has a long and established reputation in the Province. The businesses roots can be traced back to the 1870s and a company called "Joseph Blair" which operated as a hardware merchant out of 9 Church Lane, Belfast. In 2005 the company rebranded as MB Architectural and relocated to 14a Falcon Road, Belfast. In 2018 the business was merged with Moffett-Thallon to create the new entity of Doorways a specialist doors and ironmongery division of the MacBlair group. Under this umbrella the Doorways Architectural division incorporates a fully operational access control department; an ASSA lock centre as well as a full team of architectural ironmongers, schedulers and estimators.

The success of Doorways has been founded on a philosophy of selling competitively priced, good quality products which are backed by a level of service and a management function that we believe is second to none. We focus on interpreting client needs and providing advice in selecting the right products by working with the specifier as a partner to achieve the best possible results.

Our modern showroom is conveniently situated within walking distance from Belfast City Centre yet just off the Westlink connecting both the M1 & M2 motorways. With ample parking and an extensive showroom spanning 2 floors, it’s well worth a visit.
