Visually appealing and wonderfully practical uPVC and aluminium bifold doors

Boasting ultra-modern styling that simply oozes sophistication, a set of bifold doors can do wonders for your home’s visual appeal. As well as benefiting the look of your home, they will blur the lines between the inside and out, dramatically transforming the way your property feels.

Here at Poole Joinery, we install bi-folding doors built from uPVC or aluminium. The right option for you may depend on your property’s existing features, however, we can adapt the look of either set until it’s right for you and your home. Regardless of which is your preferred option, the levels of performance are excellent.

How long should bifold doors last?

The lifespan of bifold doors can vary depending on a number of factors, including the quality of the materials, the frequency of use, and the level of maintenance they receive. With proper care and maintenance, however, bifold doors can last for many years. Most high-quality uPVC bifold doors are designed to last for at least 20 years or more, where our aluminium bifolds can last 35 + years.

Do bifold doors add value to a property?

Bifold doors can be a valuable addition to any property, adding aesthetic appeal, natural light, energy efficiency, functionality, and potentially increasing the property’s value. With superslim sightlines and expansive panes of glass, our bifold doors are the perfect way to renovate your property whilst retaining value as they are an attractive feature to potential buyers.

Sumptuously Slender Sightlines

Enjoy panoramic garden views and let in the light

One of the unique features present with bifold doors is their incredibly slender framing. This creates a clean, contemporary aesthetic and enables them to mostly consist of glazing. It’s this combination that enables them to flood interior spaces with light. It also leaves you with a huge area of glass to look through, allowing you a full view of your home’s exterior. So much so, that it can feel as if you’ve brought the outside of your home indoors. Although the difference is only marginal, aluminium bifolds have slightly slimmer framing than our uPVC doors. For this reason, they offer marginally better light intake and allow for less restricted viewing.

Secure & Low Maintenance

Keep your home intruder free without excessive upkeep

Our uPVC bifold doors are equipped with a 3 star Diamond rated lock cylinder. A fold flat ‘D’ handle is also present, which engages shootbolts when the door is locked shut. This prevents the doors from being lifted out of their frames or being jimmied open. Our aluminium bi-folding doors, however, are equipped with multi-point locks on the sashes and shoot-bolt locking for any floating mullions. Therefore, you can relax in total peace of mind that security levels in your home are nice and high. Both aluminium and uPVC can also be wiped clean with ease and both are built to provide exceptional weather resistance. This means that, with either set, you’re guaranteed lasting quality and minimal maintenance.

Thermally Efficient

No need to worry about a rise in your heating bills, as our uPVC & aluminium bifolds utilise the latest thermal technology

Aluminium: Our aluminium bifolds feature polyamide thermal breaks, reducing the amount of heat transfer exponentially. By preventing heat from transferring from the inside to the outside of your home, the interior of your property will stay comfortable. In the right configuration, our aluminium bi-folding doors can achieve U-values as low as 1.5 W/m2k.

uPVC: uPVC bi-folding doors utilise uPVC’s natural levels of insulation, allowing them to achieve U-values as low as 1.3 W/m2k. Either option is then fitted with energy efficient double or triple glazing, keeping your home nice and toasty. Also, because your home will lose less heat, you won't have to spend so much to heat it up!
