Aluminium Bi-Fold Doors
Aluminium bi-fold doors are extremely stylish, versatile and efficient. Without doubt, the product that has seen the biggest growth over the past decade is the bi fold door. Their popularity has driven extraordinary growth, even during the recent economic downturn. Everyone wants bi fold doors.
Recent research by Palmer is the basis of a prediction that over 38,000 bi fold doors will be installed in the UK during 2014. And next year the figure is set to exceed 45,000.
Of course, these numbers include UPVC products as well as aluminium. But aluminium is constantly increasing its share of the total.
Aluminium Bi-Fold Door Benefits
Aluminium is the first choice among architects, developers and builders. And as awareness of the availability and superiority of aluminium over plastic becomes more developed in the retail sector, homeowners will demand it.
Energy Efficiency. Aluminium Windows Ltd understand the importance of energy efficiency. They manufacture bi fold doors in Southampton and their customers demand a product that will stand against the worst weather that the Solent can throw at them.
Their standard double glazed bi-fold doors achieve U-Values that exceed current building regulation requirements for replacement units and for new build. This is achieved by the incorporation of a polyamide thermal break in the frame that prevents the transfer of cold from the outside of the profile to the inside of the house.
One important factor in the growth of aluminium is strength. It is much stronger than plastic and the frames can be made far slimmer, producing elegant lines and allowing more light into the room.
It is also light weight (67% less than steel) which means that the operation is easier and produces less wear and tear on the running gear. All that adds up to little or no maintenance and long product life.
