How can I tell when bifold doors are high quality?
Premium aluminium profiles, a durable and high-quality colour finish, excellent components and a smooth sliding and folding action. These are the best ways of identifying a quality bifold door.
What is the advantage of a bifold door?
There are certain features you only get with a bifold, which is why they remain a popular product. Bifolds are the only doors that can open up your entire opening. At the same time, only a bifold gives you the functionality of hinged doors with the benefit of folding fully open when configured with a traffic door. Bifold doors also come with external key access, which is hard to get with sliding doors, letting you use your bifolds to get into a property. Finally, bifold doors come made as single or double doors, giving you matching exterior doors throughout your property and are available at bigger door sizes than regular hinged doors.
Which bifold doors are best?
The best bifolding doors are those that offer a combination of the best features. Slim sightlines are desirable, as the closed doors give you more glass, less visible aluminium, more light and better views. Thermally enhanced profiles make the best bifold doors very energy-efficient. Above all, ensure your bifold doors are well-made and expertly fitted and you’ll get long-lasting, reliable, functional and secure doors.
Why should I choose Alunet BF73 bifold doors?

They create matching single or double doors and even front doors, and you can customise them with the on-trend steel look. They even come with features that make fitting them a breeze compared to other bifold doors.
What are the different types of bifold doors?
The different types of bifold doors depend on the size of your opening. Bifold doors start from two panels all the way up to seven or more. They can open in or out, they can all slide to one side or split to both sides. They are available with a low threshold connecting inside floors to outside decking or slabs. Bifold doors also come in the industrial, heritage or steel look, as fixed or open corner designs and can even work inside the home as stylish room dividers.
Why are bifold doors no longer popular?
Bifold doors remain incredibly popular with features and functionality you can’t get with sliding or traditional hinged doors. They are reliable, secure, and energy-efficient. Chosen right, they are also slimmer than French doors. Even better, bifolds can be better than other doors in smaller houses because they fully open, connecting the room to the outside space and making the room and home feel larger, brighter and more spacious.
What are the problems with bifold doors?
There is no problem with modern bifold doors when properly made and, importantly, correctly fitted. It is bad manufacturing and installation that causes problems with bifold doors, not the product itself. Assuming you choose a quality bifold from a reliable manufacturer and installer, these doors will serve you very well for many years.
Do bifold doors make a room cold?
No. All doors intended for the outside of a property come with thermally insulated aluminium profiles. These insulated profiles work with high-specification safety glass and create a door with excellent insulation and low U-Values, helping lower your energy bills.
