uPVC bifold doors are the perfect way to add something unique to your property. These doors offer a stunning alternative to both traditional sliding patio doors and their aluminium counterparts opening your home to the outdoors creating a refreshing open plan area.
Providing most of the benefits of an aluminium system, uPVC bifold doors enable the homeowner to enjoy the garden and let the sunshine in.

Additionally, they are manufactured using the same running gear as their aluminium counterpart.
uPVC bifold doors are generally used in renovations, extensions or newbuilds adding in extra character and functionality. Great for summer parties, family get-togethers and al fresco dining.
