Bi-fold doors have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for a good reason. They provide an elegant and modern look to any home, along with numerous benefits. One of the most popular options in bi-folding doors is the AB60 aluminium bi-fold. In this article, we will discuss nine reasons why you should consider installing the AB60 aluminium bi-fold.

1)    Precision engineered for a perfect fit every time

At Aston Architectural Aluminium, we have a unique fabrication process whereby we measure in the last panel, ensuring it fits perfectly within the tolerance level every time.


2)    Colour matched gasket

Most fabricators have access to a range of standard colour gaskets that don’t always match the window or door frame that you’re installing. At Aston, we are able to provide an exact colour match, so that the gasket is consistent with the style of the bi-fold doors.


3)   Exclusive hardware

To really make our bi-fold doors stand out, we have access to a range of bespoke handles that you won’t be able to purchase from any other fabricator. Our handles have a real premium feel to them, and will help you to stand out from competitors, attracting more discerning customers.


4)   Durability

One of the most significant advantages of the AB60 aluminium bi-fold is its durability. Aluminium is a high performance, sturdy, durable and robust material that can withstand harsh weather conditions and heavy usage. Unlike other materials, such as wood and uPVC, it does not warp, rot or corrode, making it ideal for external use. The AB60 aluminium bi-fold is designed to last for years, and you can be assured that it will provide your customers with many years of service.


5)   Security

Security is a top priority for homeowners, and the AB60 aluminium bi-fold offers excellent high security features. Aluminium is a strong and robust material that is difficult to break or damage, making it a perfect choice for external doors. The AB60 aluminium bi-fold comes with a multi-point locking system, ensuring that your clients’ homes are secure and safe from intruders, and is also PAS 24 compliant, giving homeowners peace of mind.


6)   Thermal efficiency

Energy efficiency is a crucial consideration for everyone nowadays, and the AB60 aluminium bi-fold offers excellent energy-saving benefits. The aluminium profile used in the AB60 aluminium bi-fold is designed to provide excellent thermal performance and a low U-value, which helps to keep your clients’ homes warm in winter and cool in summer, whilst maintaining a slimline typical sightline of just 132mm, giving your customers the best of both worlds.


7)   Design options

Another significant advantage of the AB60 aluminium bi-fold is the design options available. The AB60 aluminium bi-fold is available in a range of RAL colours and finishes, including dual colour options and anodising, so you can choose the perfect solution. You can also choose from different configurations, such as the number of panels, opening direction, and the size of each panel, to open up any space and suit your specific requirements.


8)   Low maintenance

The high quality AB60 aluminium bi-fold requires very little maintenance, making it an ideal choice for busy homeowners. Unlike other materials, such as wood, which require regular painting and sealing, aluminium does not require any treatment. Simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth, and it will look as good as new.
