Aluminium doors

Our aluminium bi-folding doors can open up entire walls offering stunning, and near uninterrupted, views of your outside space. Plus, the advanced insulation properties of our thermally broken aluminium frames mean that our bifold doors are energy efficient, helping to keep your energy bills down whilst being kinder to our planet.

For homeowners considering new aluminium bi-fold doors from Albany, it’s worth understanding the standard sizes of our bi-fold doors before going ahead with the installation.

What are the standard widths for bi-fold doors?

Aluminium bi-fold doors from Origin can be custom-made to suit your specific requirements. However, a standard three-door set of bi-fold doors is typically between 70 and 96 inches in width.

A three-door set of bi-folds is one of the most common bifold door configurations which consists of a lead door and two other panes, also known as leaves. The lead door is a door that can open alone without operating the concertina mechanism of the entire bi-fold set.

What is the standard height of bi-fold doors?

All custom-made bifold doors are made to measure and designed to fit a particular size of the opening. However, a standard three-door set of bi-folds would be between 80 and 96 inches in height.

Do I have space for bi-fold doors?

External bi-fold doors are designed to fit openings that are 1.8m in size or bigger. They come in a range of sizes and door patterns, starting with two doors, and ranging up to eight doors for the largest openings.
