Why you should choose The Builders Choice aluminium bifold doors

Our aluminium bifold doors offer straightforward and precise installation, as well as reliable operation for homeowners. They are the perfect addition for new build projects, as well as for modernising a contemporary property, creating a living space that is filled with light.

The benefits of aluminium bifold doors are endless, from having low U-values meaning money can be saved on energy bills, to delivering high security standards and providing peace of mind for homeowners.

What are aluminium bifold doors?

Aluminium bifold doors are a series of large glass panels that allow full view and access to an outdoor space. They slide on runners across the floor as opposed to hinges and fold back into a compact storage area to fully open up the entire doorway.

This unobtrusive design offers convenience for seamless access to gardens. Not only do they flood living spaces with daylight, but they also allow homeowners to make the most of their property, especially in the summer months, as they’re perfect for nipping in and out when hosting garden parties and BBQs.

Benefits of aluminium bifold doors

Aluminium bifold doors offer boundless benefits and are effectively removable separators between the interior and exterior parts of the home that are able to extend living and entertainment areas while not compromising on floor space.

Here are more features that our aluminium bifold doors offer:

  • Slim sightlines

Super slim sightlines mean that maximum light can access living spaces, and views to gardens are uninterrupted, whether your doors are open or closed.

  • Low threshold options

Fully accessible options are available to make socialising even easier in the summer months. With seamless access to the garden, allowing you to connect indoor and outdoor spaces.

  • Maximum frame height of 3000mm and sash width of 1200mm

This huge expanse of glass means more uninterrupted views and light can enter the property all year round. They also add value and aesthetic appeal to homes and can be tailored to meet the needs of homeowners.

  • U-values of 1.4-1.7 W/m2K

Not only do they look stylish, but they also help to lower energy bills. With low U-values and a high performance 30mm polyamide thermal break, they keep the heat in and the cold air out.

  • PAS 24 and Document Q standard

They are tested to PAS 24 and Document Q security standards while also featuring a multi-point, shootbolt locking mechanism, delivering top security and peace of mind for homeowners. There is also the option to upgrade to Ultion’s high-security locking cylinders.

  • Easy storage

When open, the doors can be neatly folded up against a wall, providing a great space saving solution for homeowners. This means that vast open plan areas can be created even in small, cosy spaces.

  • Super smooth rollers

The doors can slide effortlessly with the silky smooth operation and offer many years of trouble-free use.

Aluminium bifold doors vs PVCu

PVCu doors used to be the popular choice for many years, but recently aluminium has increased in demand due to the many benefits it offers. Firstly, aluminium does not require as much maintenance as PVCu due to the powder coating finishing. This means that they are weather resistant and maintain appearance for many years, in comparison to PVCu doors that gradually fade when exposed to sunlight and appear to scratch easily.

Regarding security, it is vital to ensure a property is protected from unwanted intruders, and with aluminium frames being generally stronger than PVCu, they are a much safer option, offering homeowners complete peace of mind.

As well as these safety features, aluminium also provides homeowners with more options than PVCu to customise the appearance of their frames and to choose a style that is in keeping with their property. Aluminium frames are also slimmer than PVCu so living spaces are provided with more daylight and allow uninterrupted views to the outdoors.
