Aluminium Bifold Doors

Style and Elegance at the forefront.

Aluminium bifold doors are the ultimate feature to add a finishing touch to your property with the ability to fully open up the entire width of the opening – letting the outside in. Aluminium bifold doors have become incredibly popular as homeowners strive to open up their homes and create more light. The result provides airy spaces enabling you to combine your home and garden into a large more usable space.

Aluminium is generally a preferred material for bifold doors due to the solidity and architectural strength they offer particularly in larger configurations. These are also proven to be a stylish and practical alternative to traditional sliding patio doors.

They are usually installed to the rear of most properties overlooking the garden and are the ideal home improvement that enables the opening to be used for functions, parties or for that summer barbecue. Equally, they are very secure and thanks to their Warmcore technology, keeping your home warm in winter whilst still letting in lots of light.

Our aluminium bifold doors can be designed to open in or open out and dependent on your requirements can be manufactured to stack either to the left or to the right. With pleasing aesthetics in mind, our aluminium bifold doors are designed to add a stunning feature to virtually any home, matching perfectly with our aluminium window range. With a wide variety of profiles, glazing, threshold, security and energy efficiency options they are always made on a bespoke basis for each individual client.

Energy saving technology

One of the biggest benefits of the Warmcore aluminium system is that of energy efficiency.
Many other aluminium systems struggle to deliver necessary U-Values and energy ratings due to weak thermal breaks which don’t inhibit warmth escaping from your home.

With Warmcore you can be assured some of the best energy performance ratings in any aluminium product on the market. Typically 25% more thermally efficient than other traditional aluminium systems these doors are built with a revolutionary thermal core that will retain heat and help reduce your energy bills. The double glazing the U-values are U1.4 W/m2K and with triple glazing this drops as low as U1.0 W/m2K.

The A rated version features argon gas in the glass cavity and this combined with advanced performance glass & warm edge spacer bars complete the bifold to a high level of energy performance, keeping you warm and saving you money.
