Bring the outside in!
We are specialist installers of Smart aluminium bifold doors, and they are by far one of the more popular home improvements that we install. We are experienced in fitting them on renovation projects, into modern kitchen extensions, and also on new-build properties alike. A folding and sliding door set will make your room feel more spacious, brighter, and lighter than before.
The Visofold system of doors has incredibly slim aluminium frames with impressive sightlines. Importantly, the system is designed to allow for impressive opening apertures, uniting internal and external areas. Aluminium bifolding doors are made to measure, and available in a range of colours and finishes.

Classic Bifolding Doors
Aluminium bi fold doors have grown in popularity to become recognised as the fundamental feature when designing new-build homes, extensions or even in renovation projects. The reasons for this rise in demand are many including their versatility, space saving attributes, increased natural light, and being able to bring your outside inside, with a flush floor or threshold.
Aluminium folding sliding doors enable you to open up to 90% of a walls area, which would transform any space. They are a very effective alternative to the traditional French door or even an aluminium sliding patio door.
Bi-folding doors take up much less room than a standard door, without the need to centre them on a supporting wall.
These doors can be up to 2.5 metres high and have a maximum panel width of 1200mm. Traffic doors can hinge like a conventional door or as a French door.
Smart Visofold bi-fold doors are fully compliant with Document L of Building Regulations for Conservation of Fuel and Power. They are manufactured with a polyamide thermal break that creates a barrier between both door and frame sections – reducing overall heat loss. Your new bi-folding doors can be specified with a choice of double or triple glazed glass units.
Unlimited Colour options
With a huge range of over 200 RAL colours available, our bifolding doors are manufactured to complement buildings of all ages and styles.
Our favourite colours include those modern greys, for contemporary style, that work well with stone and other natural building materials. You can even choose to make a real statement with the less traditional colours in our ranges. Choose single or dual colours, with a a different colour inside to the one on the outside too – a perfect solution when existing decor must be taken into account. There really is something for every project, including woodgrain and metallic finishes.
Bifolds and the coatings that we apply are highly durable. They are powder-coated to give a lasting surface finish that is guaranteed not to discolour or peel, giving you peace of mind for years to come.
Low Thresholds – Blend the outside space even more with low thresholds for easy almost flush access or the rebated threshold for even better weather performance.
High-Security Locking Systems – Doors are fitted with the latest high-security locking. Designs that have a traffic door come with lever handles that operate a high-security, hook bolt locking system. A profile key cylinder allows access from both inside and outside. Bi-folds that are specified without a traffic door don’t have external access, and can only be opened from the inside with the shoo-bolt system, using handles fitted to the meeting stiles at the end.
Traffic Door Option – Many designs and arrangements can be specified with a traffic door, providing a normal day-to-day door section. You can then easily access the garden without opening the whole bi-fold door up. This works and feels like either a conventional door or French door.
