Bringing the outside in with Bifold Doors 

By | February 11, 2018

We moved into our home nearly (gosh) 14 years ago and saw it as a family home, a place where our (then, unborn daughter and 18 month old and 10 year old sons) children could grow up, away from the traffic and hustle and bustle of our previous mid-terrace, little house in the town centre.

Time has moved on and we have absolutely no plans to move but, as our family grew, more a wish to enhance our house and make the most of what we have.

We are very lucky to have a south-facing back garden and Bifold doors are on my wish list, not only because they look amazing – as per the image below – but they are also space-saving too.

You’d hardly know that they were there, would you? 

Here’s some details about the doors:

“Our bifold doors are made from aluminiun aluminium and glide effortlessly back to reveal a large unobstructed opening, merging the home and garden and letting the light flood in. 

They can create a lighter, airier living space in which you can enjoy the garden, whatever the weather.

Glazing efficiency:

28mm double glazed units achieve a U value of 1.8 W/m²K

36mm triple glazed units available, with a U value of 1.4 W/m²K

Polyamide thermal barrier to reduce heat loss and improve thermal performance

Upgrades to self-cleaning or other specialist units are available

Technical features:

Available with standard threshold with an up stand of 31mm or a low threshold version with ramps at only 15mm

High quality EDPM rubber gaskets and weather brushes to aid weather proofing

Robust stainless steel rollers for smooth and effortless operation

High security hook bolt locks and one piece keeps on main opening sashes, and shootbolt locking on floating mullions

Magnetic door clips are available to secure open door sashes

Head vents are available for background ventilation (must be fitted into frame extensions)

Handles available in white, chrome and black; door hinges available in white or black”

For me, the security aspect is a high priority, following closely behind is the ease of which the doors would open and close and their colour. 

 I have to admit that I’m not a fan of neutral colours and, as the doors come in a range of 13 colours, including red, blue, green and greys, they would suit any decor.

The doors also have a choice of hardware (the lock and handle unit) options and there are varying configurations for the doors to be fitted:  

As we have a conservatory, with the opening running along the whole of the rear, it’s good to know that the configurations are flexible enough to accommodate a, say, six door opening, with the options as above of left/right opening and stacking, opening in or out etc.


Quotations are free via the website’s quotation tool and doors are manufactured and delivered approximately two weeks after ordering, with a two hour delivery time slot.
