What are the advantages of aluminium bifold doors?

If you’re a homeowner in the East or West Sussex area looking to upgrade your patio doors, why not consider aluminium bifold doors? At Sussex Glazing, we know how crucial it is to choose the right door to match your property.

What are aluminium bifold doors?

Bifold doors open by folding back in sections, creating an unobstructed view of the outside. These doors are also referred to as ‘concertina’ doors as, when in operation, they resemble the movement of the concertina instrument.

Advantages of aluminium bifold doors

At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium bifold doors offer several benefits, which make them the perfect addition to your home.

Uninterrupted views

Aluminium bifold doors offer panoramic views. With super slim frames and a low line gasket, your view will remain uninterrupted even when closed. In warmer months, you can fully push back the doors creating a seamless connection to your garden. With a choice of weathered, low, or flush thresholds, they’re sure to be the perfect option for you.

Thermal efficiency

Our aluminium bifold doors will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. At Sussex Glazing, our bifold doors have a polyamide thermal barrier, which interrupts the heat transfer through aluminium, instead keeping the heat in your home. Our strong aluminium doors are effective at trapping in heat and are fully compliant with Approved Document L.

Safety and security

Aluminium is an extremely durable material, our aluminium bifold doors can withstand wind speeds of up to 100mph, which is perfect for homes by the coast. For your security, all our doors have multi-point locking mechanisms on the main openings and shoot-bolt locking systems on the floating mullions. Along with high-performance toughened safety glass, our aluminium bifold doors will give you peace of mind.

Our aluminium bifold doors also have finger-safe gaskets to ensure no one can trap their fingers when the doors are in operation.

Design and configuration

At Sussex Glazing, we know how important it is for your doors to match the aesthetic of your property, which is why we offer a range of design options. For those who live by the coast, we offer a marine grade finish on our doors, which will shield your door from the harsh natural chemicals of a coastal environment. We offer a variety of colours so you can find your perfect match.

Our aluminium bifold doors are available up to 10m wide and 3m high so there’s plenty of scope for you to design the door you desire.

Integrated blinds

At Sussex Glazing, we offer integrated blinds which are installed between two sheets of glass. These blinds require no maintenance and are perfect to protect you from the sun. Integrated blinds give you an extra level of privacy within your home and are available in several designs to match your interior’s aesthetic.
