They are easy for any tradesman to fit, and are supplied with all of the hardware, including hinges and handles and a thorough set of fitting instructions for you to follow.

A Range Styles and Designs

We stock external bifold doors in numerous configurations to suit different room layouts and opening sizes. The most popular door styles are 3,0 and 3,1 with these numbers reflecting the number of doors on each side and how they move. A 3,0 door has two doors which ‘fold’ on one side and a single door attached to the end which operates independently. In a 3,1 door, the three doors on one side will slide and fold back onto each other, with the daily access door opening on the opposite side. If you would prefer a more unusual leaf design, then one of our made to measure doors may be a good option for you. When you are choosing the door configuration, take a moment to think about where the furniture will go in the conservatory, kitchen or open plan living area, and how much space you want on each side.

Choose from oak, hardwood, engineered wood and softwood or aluminium bifold doors in a range of thicknesses and finishes.  All of these doors feature large glass panels that are designed with safety and security in mind, and offer good thermal performance, keeping heat in your home while still letting in lots of natural light.

Whether you are working on an extension or just revamping your current home, we understand that you want the project to be as hassle free as possible. Many of the doors that we sell are shipped out fully pre-machined and come with everything that you will need to fit them, including the frame, doors and all of the hardware. They also come with easy to follow installation instructions.

The Perfect Size for Your Home

Each door comes in a number of different heights and widths to suit most common opening sizes. If you are not sure what door size you need, take a look at our measuring guide in the “Timber windows and Doorsets” section of the store. This will show you how to find the correct door size.

These bifold doors are pre-cut and are designed to fit into standard openings. We do offer a selection of made to measure bifold solutions. If you need hardwood, softwood, solid oak or aluminium doors in an unusual size, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us; we would be happy to design something for you.
