Bi-folding doors are an increasingly popular patio door choice. Their smooth functionality and attractive aesthetics have proved a hit with both homeowners and commercial property managers alike. Bi-fold doors feature a unique side stacking system which, when open creates a wide space, seamlessly linking your interior and exterior space. When closed, they create a wall of glass, maximising natural light intake to create a bright and airy interior to any property.
At Kents Building Plastics, we supply high quality bi-fold doors in both aluminium and PVCu. Both materials have their own unique benefits and the one you choose will depend on your installation requirements and personal preferences. To help you make a completely informed decision, let’s have a closer look at each material.
PVCu bi-folding doors
PVCu is a versatile and high performing material. It provides excellent levels of insulation, helping to keep warm air in and cold air out. It is virtually maintenance free and with only the occasional wipe down, will stay looking like new for many years. Our PVCu bi-folds are available with between three and seven separate door leaves. This allows for excellent customisation options. The door panels can open in or out depending on space restrictions.
At Kents Building Plastics, our PVCu bi-fold doors are supplied with durable door furniture and feature high security multi-point locking systems as standard. They are the most cost-effective option and can be installed on any type of property.
Aluminium bi-folding doors
Aluminium is an inherently strong and durable material. Its natural strength means that it can support large sections of glazing with slimline frames. This maximises natural light intake, creating a wall of glass effect. Aluminium bi-folds can be specified with between two and seven separate door leaves which can open either inwards or outwards. For openings that are split into several sections, aluminium bi-folds can be separated into different opening segments.
Aluminium bi-folds are built to last. Their durable exterior finish is weather resistant and will not rot, corrode, or deteriorate even in the harshest conditions. When you want to create a stylish focal point at your property, aluminium bi-folds are the choice for you.
