Install aluminum bi folding doors to create space with elegance!

Posted by samrojseo on August 29th, 2014

Generally, bi-folding-sliding door frames are made from timber, PVC (Unplasticized PolyVinyl Chloride) or Aluminium. Bi-folds have been designed and developed using resilient aluminium possessing greater strength and therefore suitability for use of openings up to 7 metres.

The strength of material enables the frames to be of slimmer design than with other materials. The greater amount of glass facilitates better view and more light and following the same reason, the profiles (the depth of the glazed door unit) can be narrower so that the doors occupy less space when opened and stacked to the side of the aperture.

The internal and external components of Aluminium Bi Folding Doors have a thermal division to ensure that the inside and outside of the frames do not touch and therefore do not conduct heat or cold from one surface to the other, keeping the temperatures inside and outside completely separate. In case of aluminium, your view is through the glass, not at the framework. Due to the strength, aluminium is used to create the slimmest of bifolding door frames.


Whether it’s about Balcony Doors or patio doors, aluminium is the best material to go for. This material is less prone to damage than timber or plastic. Unlike timber, it does not require annual maintenance, if exposed to sun. When you open or close aluminium framed doors, they don’t tend to stick in the heat (like PVC) nor in the wet (like timber).

It’s always recommended to go for bi fold doors that are flexibly designed to practically cater for any household layout. These doors can be designed and fabricated into any arrangement for both interior as well as exterior usage. The door panels may range from a two panel door to a seven panel door, internally or externally hung, folding from either left or right, cater for a split configuration and also a traffic door.

It has been found that aluminium doors and windows are light, durable, maintenance free, thermally broken, environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable. Make sure that they are compliant with the latest building regulations, compliant with home insurance requirements, slim line permitting more natural light into your property. All windows must be internally glazed and equipped with lockable handles.

In a nutshell, it can be concluded from the above details that installing aluminium doors and windows will create enough space without compromising with the elegance factor. So, go for it now!
