Aluminium bi-fold doors, sliding doors or French doors – what’s the best option for my extension?

When looking for the right door to complete your extension or renovation, choosing the right style is essential. There are so many varied and seemingly endless options available, but at Sussex Glazing we believe that keeping your options simple and refined always leads to a better choice and a better home.  

Our range of aluminium French, sliding, and bi-fold doors are sure to provide the perfect fit for your home, your garden, and you. Although, deciding which option to go with depends solely on your personal preference and vision for your future home.  

Aluminium French and Heritage doors 

Sussex Glazing’s aluminium French doors provide a stylish and traditional way to frame your garden and allow yourself easy access on a hot summer’s day.  The French door is a wonderful alternative to the standard patio door as the outward opening allows the full amount of space to be used as part of its entranceway.  

The aluminium French door is much slimmer than its uPVC counterpart, far more durable and available in larger sizes as well as an even more broad array of colours and profiles.  

Our range of aluminium Heritage doors can add a traditional or period feel to any renovation or extension project, whilst still retaining the consistency and efficiency of a modern aluminium door. They also work as a perfect replacement for older steel windows and can modernise any project without the loss of the property’s original character.  

Aluminium Sliding Doors 

Our aluminium sliding doors provide an unimpeded view of your garden or outdoor space, and with  lowline gasket and low threshold options available, our aluminium doors provide a cleaner and more stylish profile with easy access both in and out of your home. This lower threshold option ensures that the frame of the door is doing less to hinder the view and appears to amplify the space between the garden and the rear of your home.  

Safety should always be a concern but never an issue. Our aluminium sliding doors feature a six-point locking system, an anti-lift device, and internal sliding panels for added security. Large installations will never prove a headache for redecoration again: our stainless-steel tracks ensure that your doors run smoothly whilst the concealed fixings hide each mechanism from sight, allowing for your garden view to flow seamlessly through your room.  

Aluminium Bi-fold Doors 

The range of aluminium bi-fold doors offered by Sussex Glazing presents an even more stylish and hyper-modern alternative to traditional French and sliding doors. Their slim, space saving design and fold-away sashes allow not just a beautiful view of the outdoors but offers an even further uninterrupted extension between your garden and adjoining room. Opening up your space for those long summer days where lounging around indoors simply isn’t an option.  

As well as their sleek appearance and lightweight design, our aluminium doors are just as durable and stable than the uPVC alternative. The aluminium frames themselves are able to withstand winds of up to 100mph. This also makes them an excellent choice for a home in wintertime, as the polyamide thermal barrier ensures our aluminium doors reduce heat loss and provide great insulation.  

Regardless of your taste or preferences, Sussex Glazing will provide high quality products and installation for your property. For more information or to request a quote, call us on 01273287287 or email us at
