Alternatives to aluminium bifold doors

Aluminium bifold doors are a stylish and popular home improvement option. Bifold doors can be folded completely back to make your room spacious and have super-slim frames so when closed they will continue to provide uninterrupted views of the outside. Our aluminium bifold doors have numerous benefits, including low thresholds, integral blinds, and trickle vents for increased ventilation. With a polyamide thermal barrier, these doors will keep your home warm when it’s cold outside.

However, there are several alternatives to bifold doors which all have different features and designs to suit the way you live. We’ve put together some other options to give your home the upgrade it deserves.

Aluminium sliding patio doors

Our aluminium sliding patio doors are the ideal choice to seamlessly connect your home to the outdoors. With slim outerframes and low threshold options, your view will remain uninterrupted whether doors are open or closed. With slim sightlines and large expanses of glass, aluminium sliding patio doors maximise the natural light coming into the room, making your home feel brighter and fresher.

Where our bifold doors fold completely back, our sliding doors tuck neatly behind each other without impeding upon the space in your room. A variety of colours and configurations are available to help you create your bespoke sliding door, with 2, 3, or 4 sashes, you can choose the best option to suit your needs. Aluminium sliding doors slide smoothly and effortlessly on stainless steel tracks, allowing them to accommodate larger door sizes.

Sliding patio doors come with high performance toughened glass units, which are great for wind resistance and keeping your home protected from all types of weather, as well as being made from thermally broken aluminium, ensuring your new doors remain thermally efficient.

There’s no need to be concerned about security as our aluminium sliding doors are fitted with a six point locking system, anti-lift device, and internal sliding panels.

Sussex Glazing’s aluminium sliding doors are a perfect alternative to bifold doors when you don’t want to compromise on space and want clear sightlines to the outside.

Aluminium French doors

Aluminium French doors are a great alternative to standard patio doors; they’re functional and also add plenty of aesthetic value to your home. At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium French doors are installed using a top-end two hook, two roller and shoot bolt locking mechanism, for ultimate security.

There’s no need to worry about draughts as our aluminium French doors come with draft-free hinges, which have stainless steel stabilising pins, allowing the doors to perform at their best for longer. Our high-performance toughened glass means they are great for keeping heat in and cold air out.

Aluminium French doors look great when paired with traditional properties, but their timeless aesthetic ensures they also complement contemporary homes. With French doors, you have the option to add sidelights, these will give your home a larger glazed area and will allow more natural light to flood into your room.

Aluminium heritage doors

Aluminium heritage doors are perfect for those looking for an authentic period aesthetic for their home. These doors suit traditional properties but also look trendy on modern builds. Our aluminium heritage doors are suitable for period properties and other listed and heritage buildings that must adhere to certain rules. Their neo-industrial appearance makes them the perfect alternative for older steel doors and will fit right in.

With a standard inward or outward opening, aluminium heritage doors add a stylish upgrade to traditional French doors. Whether you want a single door or a set of double doors, opening inwards or outwards, at Sussex Glazing we can create a door that suits your needs.

Our heritage doors have ultra slim profiles and the choice of double or triple glazing to ensure you keep warm inside your home. Our high-tech locking mechanisms will provide you with extra peace of mind.
