For garden enthusiasts, we know that turbulent weather can hold you back from doing those much needed Spring tasks. With bifold doors, you can bask in temperamental sun and afternoon breeze without leaving the comfort of your home.

Benefit from A Space Saving Design

One of the main advantages of bifold doors is their space saving design. Unlike traditional hinged or sliding doors, bifold doors fold and tuck away neatly, taking up minimal space. This is particularly beneficial for smaller rooms or areas with limited space. Our sleek Visoline 1000 aluminium bifolding doors incorporate slender sightlines and a large glazed expanse, which is ideal for residential or commercial settings.

When you invest in our aluminium bifold doors, you can tailor your installation with our extensive range of configurations. Whether serving as a sliding door alternative, enhancing a conservatory, or contributing to a commercial endeavour, our selection is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression.

Low Maintenance Rear Doors

Bifold doors are relatively low maintenance compared to other door options. Constructed from the inherently durable materials aluminium, which is resistant to rot, rust, and fading, you won’t have to worry about years of folding taking a toll. Regular cleaning – nothing too extreme, just hot soapy water and cloth, combined with WD-40 occasionally spray on hinges and track, will ensure smooth operation and longevity of your bifold doors.

Exploring Alternatives To Bifold Doors

If you’re unsure about bifold doors, there are alternative options to consider. Sliding doors offer a similar aesthetic and functionality, with a sleek and modern look. They also provide a wide opening and can be more thermally efficient due to their smaller frame size. French doors, on the other hand, offer a more traditional and elegant look, with the ability to open one or both doors for easy access to the outdoors.

Bifold doors can be a worthwhile investment for homeowners seeking a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. They offer benefits such as natural light, space-saving design, and a modern aesthetic. However, it’s crucial to consider factors such as climate, architectural style, and personal preferences before making a decision. Exploring alternative options like sliding doors or French doors can provide a variety of choices to suit your specific needs and style.
