Our aluminium bi-folding doors are the ultimate way to transform your home. The doors are not only visually stunning, they also utilise the latest technology to achieve outstanding weather performance and security results. Bi fold doors are available in virtually any colour for a true personalised touch.
Aluminium is a genuine long-life product. The robust profile is designed to give strength and durability to ensure a structurally sound product that requires minimal maintenance and delivers reliable performance over a lifetime of use, perfect for our aluminium windows and doors at Quickslide. Due to the strength of aluminium, our bi-folding doors feature slim frames that are robust enough to carry large sliding and folding units.
Our bi-folding doors are designed specifically around quality, endurance and aesthetics. These beautifully designed, versatile doors are suitable wherever a transformation is required. You can choose between a large variety of door configurations ranging from 2 panels to 8 panels with square or round edge profile options.

The hardware available on our aluminium bi-folding 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 bi-folding 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.
The inclusion of argon gas in to the cavity of a double-glazed unit reduces the heat conductance between the panes. This happens because the gas is 6 times denser that air.
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.
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.
Pilkington’s obscure glass range provides obscuration and decoration. All patterns are classified according to their level of obscurity in relation to each other, with 1 being least obscure and 5 being most obscure.
ATK is our standard cylinder fitted on the master door. The lock comes with the Master Locksmith Association’s highest rating – SS312 Sold Secure Diamond, TS007 3-star rating and British Kitemark accreditations. The ATK euro cylinder has 6 trap pins for advance pick resistance and 10 anti-drill pins that make your bi-folding doors stunningly secure.
Upgrade the security of your bi-folding doors by taking advantage of our PAS 24:2016 security package. The PAS 24 upgrade includes:
The upgrade is generally mandatory on new-build projects.
Our bi-folding door system utilises the latest polyamide thermal break technology creating a barrier between the cold outside and warm inside. Bi fold doors also come with multiple rubber seals and draught excluders helping to ensure that nothing, but sunlight passes through the doors. The door has been tested to 750Pa (approximately 75mph wind speed) with no water leaks and minimal air leakage.
Each doorset carries 28mm double glazed argon-filled units incorporating soft coat toughened safety glass as standard, which naturally ensures that only a limited amount of heat escapes through the glass. With a suitable triple-glazed unit our bi-fold doors can achieve u-values as low as 1.4W/m²K, similar to our french and patio door ranges.

We make every effort to ensure a high quality product but having a 10-year guarantee offers peace of mind for years to come.
