Aluminium doors

Here at Albany, we are proud to offer a bifold door solution to suit everyone. Our bifold doors are available with slim aluminium frames, offering great views out onto the garden and surrounds. Energy-efficient and secure, our bifold doors perform just as well as traditional patio doors and are ideal for kitchens, living rooms, conservatoriesorangeries, and more.

Why choose aluminium bifolds?

Strength and aesthetics

Aluminium is incredibly strong, so the frames offer slim sightlines without compromising security or performance. One of the main reason’s homeowners choose bifold doors is to create the illusion of a seamless transition from their interior space out into their garden. Having slim aluminium frames helps to enhance the open plan feel that homeowners opting for bifold doors strive to create. The innate strength of aluminium also allows for larger door or window panels, meaning more glass and thus a better view.

Low maintenance

Aluminium is also naturally resistant to corrosion resulting in your bifold doors needing little to no maintenance. There isn’t a risk of cracking, warping or splitting in harsh weather conditions over time with aluminium, unlike some uPVC doors.

Thermally efficient

Aluminium is a natural conductor, rather than an insulator, so a thermal break is used to separate the aluminium frame into the interior and exterior pieces, joining them together with a less conductive material. This helps prevent heat being transferred into the home when it’s hot outside, but it also helps stop heat being drawn from the home when it’s cold outside, meaning aluminium bifold doors offer excellent thermal efficiency.
