Which are the best Bi-folding doors for your building project?

You have to assume they are all fit for purpose they should all open and close. Some will open easier than other. Some will feel more solid and have a positive action when closed. Some of the big companies understand the need for proper engineered products and actively have a design and development team to ensure their Bi-folding doors look and feel the best.

Bi Folding Door Configurations

Our bi-fold doors can be manufactured folding to the left, right or to both sides. A pass door can be incorporated in the system, which can be used like a normal external door, leaving the other panels locked in place. For practical reasons most people choose to open the doors to the outside, but they can be manufactured opening inside if required.

Perfomance

Our range of aluminium bi-folding doors will compliment any home. Our bi-folding doors can be designed & installed for use as 'open out' or 'open in' operation, internally of externally beaded with sidelight options. All doors come with a polyamide thermal barrier which is much higher in performance compared to PVC-U or composite frames. Our frames are ultra slim which means more glass, bringing the outside in. A flush threshold can be created with no step.

"All of our Bi-folding Door's are guaranteed for 20 years against mechanical failure."

All our doors exceed current building regulation requirements. They are manufactured with thermal barriers between components, weather seals and high-performance glass sealed units which reflect heat back into the indoors. We also offer a selection of glazing options for enhanced sound and heat insulation.

Other glazing options include Pilkington self-cleaning Active glass, solar reflective for South facing doors and even triple glazing for enhanced sound and heat insulation. Dicuss these options with your friendly surveyor.
