The best bifold door options
In the last decade, aluminium bifold doors have been a popular choice for people taking on modern home improvement projects.
They have taken the market by storm because they allow homeowners to open up the rear of their properties and successfully connect the inside with the outside.
Bifold doors are a great option and allow natural light to flood into your home – which is a number one feature when people start thinking about creating more space and making a bright and bigger room.
Here at Trade Windows, we can help
Bifold doors are a super choice, allowing homeowners to connect their home with the outside. They’re made up of multiple door leaves and can successfully occupy a huge range of opening sizes, whether you use them externally or internally to divide two rooms.
Opening to one side in a concertina motion, the benefit of a bifold door is that it reveals the full width of the opening giving you an uninterrupted view of your stunning garden or seating area.
Internal bifold doors smoothly fold back on themselves and allow two rooms to open up into one. Thanks to their design, they can instantly make a room lighter – a must have feature for any family home.
Practical, aesthetically pleasing and thermally efficient, aluminium bifold doors are a perfect choice if you want to open up your home on warm summer days. They create the most seamless transition from a dining room or kitchen area, to the seating area in your garden. But don’t think they stop being loved once the sun goes in, you’ll adore them all year round!
Choose the perfect configurations for you
The beauty of bifold doors is that they can be designed to suit the exact needs of your home.
You can choose up to 6 panels in your bifold door feature and choose whether they stack to the right-hand side or left-hand side, internally or externally.
For optimum opening space, light and impressive style, each door panel can be up to 1.2 metres wide and 2.5 metres high.
A traffic door can be added to your bifold feature, giving you a single door that works just like a back door to open separately from the rest of the feature.
This means that you can open the traffic door without opening the entire set of doors, perfect for quickly nipping into the garden.

Aluminium bifold doors are secure and insulated
Working to secure your home against crime, Trade Windows aluminium bifold doors can be upgraded to Trade Secure. Trade Secure doors feature 6.8mm laminated glass for doors on the ground floor, or where there’s a flat or sloping roof less than 30 degrees where the first floor can be attacked, along with high specification glazing clips and enhanced security handles.

Thanks to modern designs and manufacturing methods, this can now be achieved, and very little heat is lost. The aluminium bifold doors are hugely insulated and when the frames close and fit together, the weathertight seals ensure a completely draught-free installation.
