Aluminium bifold doors are a desirable addition to properties with their large glazed doors flooding living spaces with daylight. They connect the indoors to the outdoors with ease, allowing seamless access to your garden, perfect for making the most of your home.
What are bifold doors?
Bifold doors are made up of a series of large glass panels that fold away neatly together. They allow full view and access to the outdoors and can be folded internally or externally, depending on what’s most suitable for your home. They can also be installed inside or outside of the home, for example as an entrance to your garden or conservatory.
Why are bifold doors so popular?
Aluminium bifold doors are a perfect replacement for patio doors or French doors as they come with a range of benefits, from creating flexible living spaces to providing a great space saving solution. They can be conveniently stored away as the panels can be folded, either internally or externally, whichever option is most suitable for your property. You can also choose which direction you prefer your glass doors to fold. From this, you are able to create an entrance that is best suited to your needs.
Aluminium bifold doors are also strong and secure, withstanding wind speeds of up to 100mph, giving you peace of mind that your home is safe, whatever the weather conditions. They also come with multi-point locking mechanisms on the main openings and shoot-bolt locking on the floating mullions, giving you confidence that your doors are as secure as possible from any unwanted intruders.
Aluminium bifold doors are not only safe and secure but they also allow homeowners to socialise and host get-togethers easily. When stacked, you can completely open up your home to provide a living space which offers seamless access to the outdoors. When closed, they provide homes with as much light and uninterrupted views as possible with their unobtrusive slimline frames.
Are aluminium bifold doors a better option than uPVC?
uPVC doors have been a popular choice for many years due to the many benefits they offer, but aluminium has increased in demand as it takes these benefits to the next level. Aluminium bifold doors do not require as much maintenance as uPVC doors because they are powder coated, meaning they do not require repainting and have a weather resistant finish. On the other hand, uPVC doors can scratch more easily, and their colour may fade gradually in the sun.
As a homeowner, you want to be sure that your property is as secure as possible and that unwanted intruders cannot obtain access to it. Aluminium frames are generally stronger than uPVC meaning more glass can be supported even with smaller frames. Whilst both materials are safe options, if you’re looking for the strongest material, aluminium is the choice for you.
When it comes to aesthetics, aluminium provides homeowners with the option to customise the appearance of their slim frames. With multiple colours and finishes available, homeowners can choose a style that is in keeping with their property as opposed to uPVC offering fewer options when it comes to customisation as well as larger frames. With aluminium bifold doors having slim sightlines, they allow living spaces to be flooded with daylight. This has its advantages but you may be looking for more privacy which is where our integrated blinds come in.
