Tailored Design

Aluminium bifold doors are extremely versatile and will work well with any Ashford property. You can decide how your new doors open to meet your specifications. From the left, to the right, inwards and outwards, you can choose how they open. Our products are also made to measure to ensure that they can fit your home perfectly.

We have two standard colours available for you to choose from, with others available upon request. The two main colours that we have chosen work well with our aluminium bifold doors and will work well with the aesthetics of your Ashford home. We also offer hardware accessories to compliment the frame.

Long-Lasting Doors

Aluminium is a very robust profile that has become very popular amongst both homeowners and installers alike. It is one of the strongest materials on the market and can provide Ashford homeowners with longevity. Not only is it suited to residential homes, but it will be the perfect addition for commercial properties too.

Our aluminium bifold doors will add structure to your Ashford home and secure it throughout the year. Your new doors require little maintenance and will only need a wipe down with a damp cloth and warm soapy water. Aluminium is a great investment for any homeowner that wants enhanced security and weather performance.

Bifold doors are a statement addition to any home and so choosing the right colour is important. Bifold doors are available in grey or white from stock. In recent times grey bifold doors have come to be the most popular, given the sleek and modern appeal it brings to any home and ability to seamlessly blend into any type of stonework or rendering. White bifold doors are more traditional and match well with most PVCu windows. You also have the option of requesting dual colour e.g. grey on the outside and white on the inside. Other colours are available upon request but may be subject to a minimum order quantity. Please get in touch to discuss. 

Hardware Colour Options

The hardware available on our aluminium bifolding doors has been designed with aesthetics and functionality in mind and the final door solution reflect this. Please note that our D handle is only available in black matching the hinges.

The standard glass unit used in our aluminium bifolding door is 28mm in depth and is comprised of 4mm toughened clear glass to the outside, a warm edge spacer bar and 4mm toughened clear Low E glass on the inside.

Warm edge spacer bars insulate the edges of a sealed glass unit and separate the panes of glass. Traditionally, spacer bars were made of aluminium, however the warm edge spacer bar used in our glass units is an extruded PVC material specifically designed to reduce transference of heat between the panes of glass keeping more heat inside the property. The spacer bar is available in 3 different colours; grey, black and white. 

Warm Edge Spacer Bars

Pilkington Optiphon is an acoustic laminated glass that offers excellent noise reduction without compromising on light transmittance or impact performance. Two 3mm pieces of glass are put together with a noise reducing interlayer typically 0.8mm thick. This glass offers the dual benefit of noise reduction and security.

Our Venetian integral blinds come in a variety of 10 different colours to complement your chosen frame finish. Integral blinds are available on our complete product range excluding bespoke shapes. Please note that the operational device will always be positioned on the right-hand side (viewed internally).

Performance

Thermal Performance

Our aluminium bifold doors are fitted with 28mm double glazing as standard, which will trap the warm air bubbles within your Ashford home. These doors can achieve U-values as low as 1.5W/m2K, which will help to reduce the level of heat transfer in your property. For Ashford homeowners that want to enhance their thermal performance, you can opt for 36mm triple glazing and argon gas, which can provide your property with a U-value of 1.3W/m2k. 

Weather-Resistance

Due to the strength of aluminium, you can trust our doors to secure your Ashford home against weather conditions. The aluminium frame is fitted with EPDM gaskets and weather brushes to help add resistance against unwelcome draughts and water ingress. No matter the time of year, your aluminium bifold doors can help you to feel secure. The double and triple glazing that we use in our aluminium bifold doors helps prevent cold draughts from entering your home.

Slim Sightlines

One of the main reasons why Ashford homeowners fall in love with aluminium bifold doors is because of the optimal views that they offer. Due to the rigidity of aluminium, the frames are narrower compared to other profiles. This allows us to fit in a wider glass surface, giving you panoramic views of your garden. The glazed units will also flood your property with natural daylight throughout the year, making your home brighter.

Manufacturing Guarantee

Our aluminium bifold doors are designed to provide your Ashford home with longevity. You can benefit from improved thermal performance, security and weather resistance. Our doors come with a ten-year manufacturing guarantee. In the unlikely event that anything were to go wrong, get in touch with your local installer, and they will be happy to help. You can be confident that you have chosen the right company for your next project.

Inspiration

If your door is making a rattling noise it is likely to be an issue with the compression of the lock. Adjustments can be made using a correct sized Allen key to turn the cams to achieve the correct compression. If the ratting noise continues or if you are having trouble fixing the issue, please call your installer to ask for advice.

If the door is going to be installed between the brickwork and the aperture is square and level, you should deduct 10mm from the total brick-to-brick width and height. We have a very thorough bi-fold installation guide available to read on our website.

Our bi-folding doors will arrive unglazed. The glass units will be delivered at the same time as the doors but will need to be installed once the frame and doors are in. To prevent the glass in the panels from dropping, you should make sure you have toe and heeled the glass. A guide on how to toe and heel the glass can be found in the last section of our installation guide.

Yes, you can fit trickle vents to our bi-folding doors after manufacture if you have the correct tools. However, we don’t advise you to do this, as it may damage the panel and/or frame and would incur a cost to fix or replace.

Yes, our DV173 low threshold option has the facility to have aluminium ramps attached at no extra cost. With the addition of the ramps the threshold will comply with Part M of the Building Regulation (DV174). See our building regulation guide for more information.

Firstly, if your bi-folding doors are hard to slide, please check and make sure the frame is square and plum. All gaskets should measure 11mm between the frame and panel and the rebated locking side should measure 14mm between the frame and panel. If the doors are still hard to slide, please check that the door has been toe and heeled correctly. If you are unsure if the door has been toe and heeled correctly, we recommend you to get in touch with your installer and ask them to check this.

Bifolding door prices vary depending on each project and its dimension and design. Our bespoke and competitive pricing is completely unique and based on each individual project. We recommend you to use our online quoting engine to design your new doors and request a price.

Bifolding door installation can be complex and requires experience from installing a variety of other products. If you need more information about installing our products, we have a fantastic installation guide at your disposal. If you are a homeowner and require an installer, we can show you a list of local installers for you to choose from.

Bi-fold doors are suitable for any home as they offer the greatest choice of width and height flexibility; a two-panel version can even replace a French door. With bi-folding doors you’ll naturally increase the brightness of your living space and the added wow factor may even increase the value of your home. Generally, bi-fold doors are a great idea. The only time you may want to think twice before choosing bi-fold doors is for period homes, where traditional and classical products such as a French door may be a more suitable option. Having said that, traditional colour options allow you to add an element of tradition to the doors.
