Our aluminium bi fold door range is enhanced with polyamide thermal barrier technology. This enables the windows and bi fold doors to exceed the energy performance requirements of current Building Regulations. Profiles used in all products from our aluminium range are very thermally efficient. A very high resistance to heat transfer from the inner face of the frame to the external face of the frame gives superior thermal efficiency and reduced condensation.
Powder-coated aluminium is one of the most durable finishes available for windows and bi fold doors. It won’t discolour, rust or peel, giving it a long-lasting, attractive appearance.
All aluminium products from the bifoldsdirect.com aluminium bi fold doors range come with superior guarantees. This guarantee covers the powder-coating against the following faults:
- peeling, powdering and blistering
- chalking, fading and loss of sheen
Aluminium, by its very nature, is a strong material compared to PVCu and doesn’t require additional reinforcements.
The superior strength of aluminium allows for larger arrangements which are only possible with timber or PVCu when using bulky profiles and couplers.
Most PVCu bi-folds can only extend to 750mm-wide sashes; the bifoldsdirect.com Aluminium Bi-folding Doors can accommodate 1200mm sashes.
The slimmer and stronger aluminium frames increase the ratio of glass to frame therefore letting more light into your home.
Clean joints and subtle lines offer a luxurious finish for homeowners to admire.
Ease of maintenance
Aluminium is easy to keep looking great and is virtually maintenance free. Modern powder-coating delivers a hard-wearing finish which will last for years.
With occasional cleaning and periodic lubrication of locks and hinges, aluminium windows and doors will look and operate ‘as-new’ for longer.
Aluminium is a durable substance, therefore windows and doors made from aluminium will continue to open and slide smoothly over many years.
Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, and when recycled uses just 5% of the total energy needed to produce frames from scratch.
