How energy efficient are aluminium bifold doors?

If you’re a homeowner in the East or West Sussex area and you’re considering upgrading the doors for your residential property, you might be wondering how energy-efficient aluminium bifold doors are. One system that stands out in this regard is the aïr 800 bifold door. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this door so energy efficient.

High-efficiency thermal performance

First and foremost, the aïr 800 bifold door features a thermally broken profile. This means that the door’s aluminium frame is designed with a thermal barrier that separates the interior and exterior parts of the frame, reducing the amount of heat that can be conducted through the frame itself.

This is a key feature that helps to improve the energy efficiency of the door and makes it an excellent choice for residential properties looking to save on heating bills. Designed for extreme weather resistance, aïr 800 aluminium bi-fold doors have low U-values and have been tested for wind resistance up to 1800pa – that’s around 120mph – to keep your home cosy and draught-free.

In addition to the thermally broken profile, the aïr 800 bifold door is also available with triple glazing. Triple glazing is becoming increasingly popular as a way to improve the energy efficiency of windows and doors. As the name suggests, triple glazing uses three layers of glass rather than the two layers found in standard double glazing. This extra layer of glass helps reduce heat loss and can significantly improve the door’s thermal performance.

Alongside incredible thermal performance, aïr aluminium bi-fold doors have been engineered with the latest technology, including Teflon®-coated seals, for ultimate weather protection and stainless-steel rollers for a smooth opening every time.

Upgrades and options

Finally, the aïr 800 bifold door also offers a range of upgrade options that can further improve its energy efficiency. For example, you can opt for Low-E glass, which has a special coating that reflects heat back into the room, or acoustic glass, which can help to reduce outside noise.

You can also choose to add integral blinds, which can help to regulate the amount of sunlight that enters the room and improve the door’s overall energy efficiency. The system is also available in a huge range of configurations to suit openings up to 10 metres wide and 3 metres high.

We can also provide other aluminium bifold options, which all have different features if you require something different for your project.

If you’re a homeowner in the East or West Sussex area looking for an energy-efficient door system for your residential property, aluminium bifold doors are an excellent choice. Its thermally broken profile, triple glazing, and range of upgrade options offer exceptional thermal performance and can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.
