Seamless indoor-outdoor living: Choosing between aluminium bifold doors and sliding doors

Connecting the outside to your home can completely change your space. Living spaces that seamlessly blend into outdoor areas give you more room to enjoy your home. And what’s better than bringing the beauty of nature together with home comforts?

At Sussex Glazing, our aluminium sliding doors and aluminium bifold doors provide a seamless indoor-outdoor connection, but which is best for you?

Aluminium bifold doors

Bifold doors fold back against themselves in a concertina style and will sit against one side. With various configuration options, there’s sure to be an option that perfectly complements your lifestyle. You don’t need to have the biggest of openings to benefit from bifold doors, as long as there’s enough space to stack the panes either inside or outside of your home, you’ll be able to reap the rewards.

Whilst these doors create the biggest opening to the outside, it is likely that most days they will stay closed, so it’s important to choose the right doors with the right levels of energy efficiency to keep your home comfortable all year round.

Aluminium sliding doors

Sliding door panels sit behind one another when open, meaning they don’t provide a fully unobstructed view, as one panel will always be visible. If you’re short of space, our aluminium sliding doors are perfect, as they don’t take up valuable space on the inside or outside of your home.

Our aluminium sliding doors are available in sizes up to 2.5 metres wide and 2.7 metres high to create a wall of glass within your home. These doors have wide panes to maximise the glass area, so even when closed you can enjoy an abundance of of natural light and enjoy the view from the comfort of your home.

Safety and security

Our aluminium sliding doors and aluminium bifold doors in Sussex can withstand wind speeds of up to 100mph, which is perfect for homes in coastal areas. For added durability, we offer a marine grade finish on our doors, which can shield your door from the harsh natural chemicals of a coastal environment. These doors have multi-point locking mechanisms on the main openings and shoot-bolt locking systems on the floating mullions.

Energy efficiency

Our aluminium bifold doors have a polyamide thermal barrier, which interrupts the heat transfer through aluminium, instead keeping the heat in your home. Our aluminium sliding doors have a three-chamber sash providing excellent thermal efficiency to ensure your home is warm in winter and cool in the summer.
