Bifold doorsAluminium-Bifold-Doors

Bifold doors are also known as bi-folding doors, folding sliding doors, glass sliding doors and sliding room dividers. In its simplest term, a bifold is a door that slides open while its panels fold up and stack neatly against the wall – like a concertina.

Bifold doors have become hugely popular over the last decade as back door alternatives. It is easy to see why. They are strong, stylish and durable.

As a virtual maintenance free solution they can bring a huge amount of light into a room, and create a great space for entertaining. Bifold doors can be straight across the wall of your home, or around a corner for a more dramatic effect.


Patio doors

A set of patio doors are a large set of glass sliding doors leading to a patio, garden, or balcony. They are the perfect way to add natural light to your home. They can give you easy access to the exterior of your property and look great.

With a wide range of designs and styles to choose from your only problem will be deciding which ones you want in your home.

Sliding doors

A sliding door is a type of door which opens horizontally by sliding, usually parallel to aOutlook-Aluminium-Sliding-Doors-Leeds wall. Sliding doors can be mounted either on top of a track below or be suspended from a track above and some types ‘disappear’ in a wall when slid open.

Sliding doors are perfect for increasing the amount of natural light entering your property.  Maximising the glass area and having a minimum amount of framework, you can enjoy fantastic views of the scenery outside
