Bifold Doors


Why should I get a bifold door?

Slim and strong, our well designed bifold doors conveniently fold to help maximise valuable London space. Of all door types, bifold doors cover the biggest openings. That means that these doors are an ideal solution to maximise light into the property and extend your garden view. We can produce these doors in either timber or aluminium.

How do bifold doors work?

A single master door allows for conventional access on a daily basis. Thanks to the Brio system, the full folding effect can be achieved with only a few moments of smooth and precise sliding. Constructed in engineered timber or aluminium, these bifold doors provide an efficient and elegant entrance to any patio or garden. The glass area floods your home with precious natural light and brings a contemporary touch to any London property. With 24mm low emissivity double glazed units as standard, our bifold doors offer incredible thermal and acoustic improvements. With over 200 RAL colours to choose from, you can specify a bifold door that is as unique as it is gorgeous.

Is it worth the extra cost?

The benefits that a large bifold door can bring are difficult to understate. In essence, one of the main advantages is that when it’s hot you can have the whole thing open and let as much breeze and light into the home as possible. It makes access to the garden very easy, so it’s great for summer garden parties or barbeques. If you’re not using the garden at the time, it still allows a large amount of light into the property. That natural light helps to make your living area bright and colourful.  In terms of security, you’re not making any sacrifices. You can still have safety glass in bifold doors, and our multipoint locking system ensures your peace of mind whether you’re in or out of the house.

You might not believe it, but folding doors have been traced back to the 1st century AD. If you go and visit the ruins of Pompeii you can even see surviving samples. This was most likely due to ventilation and cooling in the hotter climates before modern inventions like air conditioning. Folding doors continued throughout history, with many examples still surviving today from many different eras from many different parts of the world – particularly from hot climates.

Just in case you didn’t believe us, here’s a picture of the folding door in Pompeii!
