Why Choose Aluminium for Bifold Doors?

Aluminium is the ideal material for manufacturing superior bifold doors:

  • Strong and Durable – Aluminium is resilient to the elements and withstands high traffic use over a lifetime of operation.
  • Weatherproof – Aluminium bifold doors achieve exceptional air, wind and water tightness when correctly installed. Thermal breaks minimise conduction for excellent insulation.
  • Low Maintenance – Aluminium does not warp, rot or corrode and never needs repainting. Occasional cleaning is all that is required.
  • Design Versatility – Aluminium can be shaped, folded, extruded and finished in any number of ways. Perfect for innovative bifold door designs.
  • Slim and Light – Aluminium frame and door leaf profiles can be made very slim. Panels are lighter in weight making operation smooth and easy.
  • Recyclable and Sustainable – Environmentally conscious homeowners appreciate that aluminium is 100% recyclable. Manufacturing aluminium has low embodied carbon.

Choosing the Right Aluminium Bifold Doors

There are a few key considerations when selecting aluminium bifold doors for a project:

  • Performance – Check that the doors meet thermal and acoustic insulation standards and are certified by independent organisations like the British Standards Institute (BSI).
  • Hardware – Doors should glide open effortlessly on a smooth roller track system. High-quality hardware is essential for reliable operation over time.
  • Seals – Weather sealing and internally glazed gaskets should make the doors completely draught-proof. Anti-finger trap gaskets increase safety.
  • Security – Multi-point locks that meet PAS 24 standards provide the highest levels of security and resistance to forced entry.
  • Credentials – Reputable bifold door brands will provide extensive product guarantees. Also, look for industry accreditation like ISO 9001 certification.
  • Experience – An experienced manufacturer is invaluable for creating bespoke bifold doors to match your exact specifications. They will also have the technical abilities to fulfil challenging designs.

The number of door panels ranges from 2 to 6 or more. More panels mean a wider opening space when fully retracted. An even number of panels is most common.

Bifold doors are available as inward or outward openings. Outward opening helps maximise interior space.

Doors can be designed to open from the left, right or both sides to suit your space. With double-action bifold doors, panels can open inwards and outwards for flexibility.

There is no set size for bifold doors. They can be designed to fit openings as small as 1.5 metres up to unrestricted spans over 6 metres wide. Panels can be manufactured up to 2.5 metres in height.
