AluFold’s 8 Foot Wide Bifold Doors

25 April, 2023

Here at AluFold, we’re committed to delivering perfect bifold doors, regardless of your requirements. We can offer customised colours and contemporary hardware, but for this article, we’re going to focus on the size. We believe that every job is unique, so whether you’re looking for a massive set of doors that encompass a wide area, or something a bit more subtle, we’ve got you covered.

Generally speaking, most bifold doors come with either three or four panels. We’ve worked on multiple projects and the majority required doors between 5 and 7 feet in size. Every once in a while though, we get asked to do something larger.

Eight Feet Bifold Doors

For example, shortly after Christmas, we helped a customer install 8ft bifold doors in their property. This involved widening an existing entranceway, but once we were certain that it wouldn’t jeopardise the structural integrity of the house, things moved fast. We worked closely with the homeowner and were able to get things done quickly and efficiently.

This wasn’t the only time we’ve installed eight foot bifolding doors, but larger projects are always a rewarding experience. If you’re considering a bigger installation, there are several benefits to it.

The Advantages Of Wider Bifold Doors

Bifold doors are the perfect way to increase the light in your house. It stands to reason therefore that the bigger the doors, the brighter your home will be. An eight foot wide bifold door will give you an enormous glazing area, and the slim sightlines will enhance it even further. If you choose larger doors, you’ll really notice the difference on a bright summer’s day.

As they’re made with aluminium, they also have several security benefits. Aluminium is a comparatively lightweight metal, but it’s exceptionally strong and nearly as tough as steel. Ours come with double glazing as standard and they’ll resist even the most determined burglar. We fit them with top-of-the-range locking mechanisms too, so you’ll have complete peace of mind. Our 8ft bifold doors might be bigger than average, but that doesn’t mean you’ll compromise your safety.

They’re thermally efficient and can help reduce your household heating and cooling costs too. Plus, aluminium doors are an exceptional acoustic barrier. If you’re constantly bothered by external noises disrupting your home life, our bifold doors can help make things quieter and calmer.

In other words, if you’re looking for a new set of bifold doors, you’ve come to the right place. AluFold can help you every step of the way. You can request a free online quote today, or email us at to find out more.
