Slim-line aluminium bi-fold doors

Postby AltenburgMum » Tue Oct 24, 2017 8:52 pm

Hi All,
I"m looking for recommendations for a Window Installer that can do slim line aluminium bifold doors.

We are looking to replace our existing wooden ones that are rotting.

Any suggestions greatly recieved
Thanks

we had slimline aluminium slide and pivot doors from Sunseeker installed.
we went the slide and turn option rather than bi-fold as they are far less imposing and slimmer.

I would recommend sliding doors rather than bi-fold. Having had both I much prefer sliding ones - they’re easier to operate and look much better.

Hi there,

It’s probably my most often sourced item for projects I run (I’m a project manager for a design and build company in SW London)!

Glazing is definitely that ‘how long is a piece of string?’ product because you can literally spend endless amounts of money on it.

Here are a few companies I recommend you get quotes from: Cantifix (high-end, expensive but incredibly good service and product), Maxlight (a lot more budget friendly and a very elegant product as well), Sunsquare (although more so for rooflights I don’t think I’ve used them for doors yet), or you could go with Origin doors, which are very decent and we have fitted a number of them throughout SW London. The only people I’ve Not had a great experience with is Slimline Aluminium Glazing company, very fast turnaround but the service and aftercare was a bit of a struggle, but perhaps that was just on that project!

If you have any questions, let me know! :)

I agree with Dudette, the sliding doors are more easy to operate and look elegant.

We had rear sliding doors fitted by FineLine. They were about £10k so not the cheapest out there but when you look through the house from the front, it looks like there are no doors at all, they are that slim.

Express Bi-Folding Doors (www.expressbifolds.co.uk) are excellent.
