Sturdy, sleek and stylish, aluminium bifold doors continue to be one of the most popular door styles selected by homeowners when upgrading their property, making them a sound investment for the future. Not only do aluminium bifold doors look impressive but their benefits are far reaching, from space saving and security to sustainability and much more.
Here are the top five benefits of bifold doors:
- A Lighter and Brighter Home
The strength of aluminium allows for larger glass panels with slimmer frames, meaning that bifold doors let in lots of natural light to create bright spaces in your home. When folded back, you’re met with a wall to wall opening that showcases uninterrupted views and a room that extends to the outdoors. Aluminium bifold doors can also be installed internally to make a glazed room divider, providing there is sufficient support, and this can help to brighten dark rooms or small spaces.
- Long-lasting and Low Maintenance
Aluminium bifold doors are incredibly strong and durable, making their up-keep minimal. These doors can literally weather the storm, withstanding wind speeds of up to 100mph, thanks to their sturdy frames. They are also not affected by seasonal changes to weather, and they won’t warp, bend or split in the heat. Easy to clean, our bifold doors are coated with a marine grade powder which gives them a long-lasting finish. Our aïr 800 bi-fold doors are finished with aïrcoat – a scratch and dirt resistant paint which helps your doors withstand the hustle and bustle of daily home life. The doors also have a 25-year manufacturer’s guarantee, to give you complete peace of mind.
- Personalisation Possibilities
There are many reasons why bifold doors are so popular with homeowners, but their aesthetic appeal features high on the list. Sleek and modern in design, these doors are completely customisable, complementing existing décor or adding a contemporary twist to a more traditional property. You can choose from a range of designs, including number of glass panels, frames and colours to add the personal touch. At Sussex Glazing, there are so many options to help you choose the right bifold door for your living space – you can choose bifold doors that fold from either direction or a design that opens from the middle outwards, along with many more configurations.
- Space Saving Versatility
Bringing the outside in, aluminium bifold doors transform your home to create a larger and brighter living space. Their flush design means that when open, the doors offer an uninterrupted link to your outdoor space and can even fold away internally for a flush, space saving finish. Bifold doors can also be utilised inside the home to section off areas without sacrificing space or light.
- Latest technology to keep intruders out and heat in
You’ll certainly have peace of mind that your home is safe from intruders with bifold doors. With toughened glass, multi-point locking mechanisms on the main openings, and shoot-bolt locking on the floating mullions, they offer a high level of security for your property. These sturdy doors also provide excellent thermal performance, featuring a polyamide thermal barrier which keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, while also helping to curb your energy bills.
