Not only do aluminium folding doors provide strength and security but they allow you to fold and slide the panels to the left or right, opening up the area. Aluminium is, without a doubt, the perfect material for manufacturing folding doors. Its strength to weight ratio is unparalleled, it won’t expand or contract in extreme temperature conditions, and it is virtually maintenance free. What’s more, aluminium can be powder coated to practically any colour. Aluminium folding doors have been growing in popularity over the past decade and have now become recognised as a fundamental feature when designing new-build homes, extensions or even in renovation projects. There are many reasons for this rise in demand, including versatility, space saving, increased natural light and the ability to bring the outside inside with a flush floor level.
Used commercially in a bar, café or restaurant, they can create a glazed screen that allows the maximum light in when it’s cold, but also easily glides to open up an entire wall in warmer weather. You can choose whether the doors should fold internally or externally, the opening be placed at the side so the panels all fold one way to create a single entrance door for easy access, or in the middle to give the option of a double door.
