Which material is best for bifold doors?

Bifold doors are an extremely popular choice for patio and garden doors as they’re functional as well as visually stunning. We’re often asked which material is best for bifold doors; uPVC or aluminium? We offer both aluminium and uPVC bifold doors which both offer a range of benefits for your home. Bifold doors are a stunning way to maximise natural light in your home. They provide a seamless way to move between your home and outside space. With their unique way of stacking, your door won’t take up any of your valuable space.


uPVC is an extremely popular material for bifold doors due to its versatility. It’s an effective insulator which keeps your heat in and the cold out. It can easily complement any style of home; traditional or modern. Easy to clean, uPVC requires next to no maintenance to keep it looking good all year round. It’s strong and with a variety of colours and wood effect finishes, your doors will brighten up your home. Letting light flood in, they are the perfect way to impress.

Our uPVC bifold doors have panes which fold back to create a wide-open space between your home and garden. This can come in handy for garden parties or when moving furniture outside. With up to seven panes, you can create a fully glazed wall. With effective weatherproof seals and the latest locks, these doors will keep your home comfortable and secure. Our doors are stylish but never compromise on security and efficiency.


Aluminium is extremely strong which makes it ideal for a bifold door; your home will be kept safe and secure. Due to its strength, aluminium boasts slimmer frames and sightlines compared to other materials. This means you can let more light in and get that modern minimalist look. They have that striking style that will impress guests every time they move around your home. When open, you have an open-plan feel where your garden becomes part of your home. Garden living and parties become so much easier thanks to bifold doors.

Our aluminium bifold doors are individually made to ensure a precise fit for your home. Draught and weatherproof, they’re suitable for even the harshest of environments including coastal areas. They won’t rust or corrode and have that stunning modern look that suits so many homes. In an almost limitless range of RAL colours, you can create any style you desire for your home. Grey goes hand in hand with aluminium; you could even choose a wood effect finish to suit a period property.
