There are plenty of reasons why aluminium bifolds remain one of the most popular home improvement options in the UK – they’re obviously perfect for all those open plan kitchen extensions and provide that inside/outside feel between the home and garden which modern consumers love. They pull in bags of natural light and can be configured to suit virtually any style or size of home, with the added bonus that, in aluminium, there’s virtually no maintenance.

That popularity though is exactly what makes it so difficult to choose the right supplier. There are now almost 800 companies in the UK fabricating aluminium bifolds, up 10% over the last 5 years alone. With so much choice and so many newcomers to the market, why do we still think we’re the best in the business?


We’ve been fabricating exclusively in aluminium since 2014. This is all we do. Ours is a large-scale, high-tech manufacturing facility, with a dedicated bifold production line equipped with the very latest precision quality machinery. It’s as far removed from the aluminium bifold set-ups we’ve seen squeezed into the corner of some of our competitors’ PVC-U factories as it’s possible to be.


Our team are experts in this market. Our Chief Exec Russell Yates was previously the Managing Director at the aluminium systems house AluK, and our Technical Director Simon Johnstone worked with the likes of Anglian before moving into aluminium fabrication way back in 2005. Many of our production staff have been with us since the start and their skill and attention to detail mean we can pride ourselves on offering made to measure products right first time.


Want advice on how to fit a corner bifold without a mullion, want to know what you need to do to comply with the new Part L or Part F in the Building Regs, or want to add an opening vent to your bifold? Give us a call – we’ll always be able to help.


We offer both standard and premium bifold ranges to give installers and homeowners the widest possible choice. You can order doors with left or right opening, folding in or out and with anywhere from 3 to 14 panels. Of course, there’s a vast range of colours available to order as well – any RAL or British Standard colour you like – and core white, anthracite grey and black options always in stock.


We offer a quality product at a very competitive price. We can do that because of the scale and efficiency of our operation – we don’t cut corners and we don’t compromise on service – we’re just very good at what we do.

Lead times

We’ve bounced back quicker than many in this market after the Covid related supply shortages which affected aluminium supplies for much last year. We made huge investments in stock so that we’re back to our best with a 95% OTIF score and lead times of one week on unglazed doors and two weeks on glazed.

And of course, we deliver anywhere in the UK for free.
