More and more Lancashire homeowners are setting their sights on the minimalist concertina bifold door style. Illuminating, strong and space-saving, here are 5 reasons why you need to choose aluminium bi-folds for your next home improvement project.

  1. Superb strengthWhite upvc bifold door with double glazing Lancashire

Are you aware that aluminium is 3½ times stronger than uPVC and up to 40 times stronger than timber? One-third the weight of steel, it’s hardly surprising that aluminium has become the ‘go-to’ construction material thanks to its incredibly lightweight qualities that support the most intricate and complicated architectural designs. The method of powder coating strengthens aluminium bifold doors further, making it more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading and wearing too.

  1. Inspirational sightlines

Thanks to its inherent strength, aluminium allows for the thinnest sightlines united with breath-taking amounts of glass. The high glass to frame ratio is particularly significant when it’s used to create cutting-edge bifold doors, providing the maximum amount of window space.

Take a look at our aluminium bifold brochures from Smarts and Alufold to see which sightlines are the best option for you.
