In-House Manufactured Doors
We have been expert manufacturers of aluminium bifold doors for many years and have perfected the craft behind supplying these contemporary external doors to our trade partners. Our new bifold system is manufactured using the slimline Visofold 1000 slim system from our long-standing aluminium extruder Smart Systems. Through our dedicated delivery service, the British trade continue to rely upon Quickslide for the perfect blend of high-quality product and service.
Bifold Door Materials
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. Due to the strength of the metal, our new aluminium bifold door system features sightlines of around 122mm using slim frames that are robust enough to carry large double-glazed units. These units allow for an influx of light into the home.
Aluminium Bifold Door Designs
These beautifully designed, versatile doors are suitable wherever a transformation is required. Homeowners can choose between a large variety of door configurations ranging from two panels to eight panels with square sashes. Whatever the specification, the homeowner will enjoy ease of access between two spaces, with the door leaves folding neatly at the end. Our new, slimmer bifold system allows for larger uninterrupted openings, providing a stunning appeal for any home.
Our Colour Options
Our aluminium bifold doors are available in white, grey, and black as standard, with the option to upgrade to bespoke colours subject to application. Our bifolding door colours are long lasting and weatherproof, maintaining a factory fresh shine for decades. Your homeowners get the absolute best.
Our bifold doors are available with a range of handle options, and a selection of colour finishes to match. Better yet, magnetic catches and secure multi point locking systems improve daily use and security. Our bifold doors are designed to offer functionality as well as style and aesthetic.

Glass is the dominant part of a bifold doors composition, so it must be quality. We use 28mm double glazed units in ours, with a warm edge spacer bar made from an extruded PVC material specifically designed to reduce transference of heat between the panes of glass keeping more heat inside the property. The glass used in our aluminium bifold doors is comprised of 4mm toughened glass to the outside and 4mm clear Low E toughened glass on the inside.
Triple glazing is made up of three panes of glass with air or argon gas within each of the two pockets. Triple glazing work in the same way as double glazing although with triple glazing you get an extra pane of glass and an extra insulation barrier. The extra pane of glass offers better insulation values. Triple glazing is popular in the Nordic countries where temperatures reach well below 0.
You have the option of upgrading to acoustic lamination for excellent noise reduction. This upgrade features two 3mm pieces of glass are put together with a noise reducing interlayer.
Our obscure glass range provides both substance and style. All patterns are classified according to their level of obscurity in relation to each other, with one being least obscure and five being most obscure.
Venetian Integral Blinds
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).

Which system do you use for your bi-fold doors?
From September 2023 we’ve switched to a new slim bi-folding door system ‘Visofold 1000 Slim’ featuring the innovative Quick-Glaze Bead with integrated gaskets that are simply tapped-in on site – an installer’s dream! This new system also features slimmer sightlines and a contemporary square sash in place of the outdated rounded sash.
Do you offer a low threshold option for your bifold door?
Yes, we offer different threshold options including a low threshold and a low threshold with ramps, which helps to create a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. With the addition of the ramps the threshold will comply with Part M of the Building Regulation (DV174).
Which is better: bifold or sliding doors?
It really comes down to the opening and your preference. If you want a spectacular uninterrupted opening on to a fine patio and/or sculpted gardens, then you should consider a bifold door.
A great choice for superb uninterrupted views all year round is sliding doors. They use more glass and less frame. Considering the British summer weather, the doors will spend just as many days closed as open.
