We know that a lot of our customers wish to bring the outside in and maximise their living spaces – which is exactly the reason why our aluminium bifold doors are so popular. Known for adding a sense of sophistication and luxury to any given space, here’s 4 advantages of buying bifold doors for your home in Essex.

Bifold doors will maximise natural light

Whether opened or closed, you can guarantee that bifold doors will maximise the amount of natural light entering your living space. Achieved by utilising the strength of aluminium slim frames, our bifold doors have been designed to provide the maximum amount of glass and the minimum amount of frame. Not only does this maximise the amount of natural light entering your living space, but it also increases exposure to vitamin D which improves our mood and reduces our stress levels. A winner all around we’d say.

Total security with bifold doors

We understand that the safety and security of our loved ones is incredibly important which is why all bifold doors from Double Glazing Essex feature multi-point locking systems as standard. But what is a multi-point locking system? Good question! A multi-point locking system is one that bolts the door into the frame and locks at multiple points with the turn of a key, giving you peace of mind that your security is improved further.

Guaranteed energy efficiency with bifold doors

We often get asked ‘do bifold doors retain heat?’ and ‘are bifold doors energy efficient?’. The answer to both of these questions is yes.

Making use of their multiple chambers within the aluminium frame, we can guarantee energy efficiency and thermal retention with our bifold doors. Combined with double glazing, you can worry not that your home will remain at a consistent, comfortable temperature all year round, regardless of the weather outside.

Customisable bifold doors to suit your Essex home

A lot of our customers ask us questions about the customisation and sizes of bifold doors such as ‘what sizes are bifold doors available in?’ and ‘what colours do bifold doors come in?’ as two of the most popular questions.

Depending on the space available, our team of experts would recommend a bifold door configuration for you, including the number of leaves needed.
