Bi-Folding-sliding Aluminium-framed double-glazed Patio Doors

Featured Client: SunSeeker Doors
Featured Product: BiFolding Patio Doors

There are many choices when deciding which doors to install from your house to the patio or conservatory. Traditionally, French doors were the only choice until the advent of sliding patio doors and this millenium has seen the popularity of bifolding doors.

The main reason for this is because bifolding doors maximises the width of the opening to the garden or conservatory.

French doors are still excellent but only for openings less than 6ft. Sliding patio doors, when closed, facilitate a great view but are very restricitive when it comes to maximum opening width. A run of bifolding doors can be over 7 metres, in which case the strength of aluminium frames comes into its own. There can be problems with wooden frames - expanding in hot, wet or humid conditions, the need for frequent staining or painting (especially in hot sun) - and pvc frames, whilst cheaper, are approximately twice as wide as metal frames in order to provide sufficient strength, therefore the view is of pvc rather than the garden.

Aluminium frames have a lasting powder-coated finish, white is standard but the array of available colours is vast. Prettier than plastic, less maintenance than wooden, aluminium framed bifolding doors are the best choice for many householders.

SunSeeker Doors manufactures and installs aluminium bifolding doors in under a month and provides a two-year warranty.
