Ultimate protection with style

Hive Architectural’s aluminium bifold doors provide maximum security for your property. The aluminium frames we use are robust and resistant to weathering, giving you peace of mind that your property will be protected from the elements.

Investing in bi-fold doors is an excellent way to boost your property’s value and can even work wonders for the smallest of terrace homes. You won’t have to worry about too much space being taken up thanks to their minimal slide-away design.

Fantastic thermal efficiency

Our bi-folding doors offer excellent thermal efficiency, helping you to save on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. With slimmer frames, you can also enjoy more natural light in your home with large glass panels.

Being thermally efficient helps regulate the temperature inside your property – it minimises heat loss, so you’ll have more heat in cooler seasons and more comfortable indoor temperatures during summer.

Low maintenance

Aluminium bifold doors require minimal maintenance – just a simple wipe-down with a damp cloth every now and then. Enjoy all the benefits of having a modern home without sacrificing the classic look of older properties.

Maximum security

Our aluminium doors provide top-level security, as well as great thermal energy retention – keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

The aluminium frame is much slimmer than traditional sliding doors, allowing for larger glass panels which can create an impressive visual impact.

Main differences between aluminium, uPVC and timber bi-fold doors

Aluminium doors are some of the most durable, with a longer lifespan than uPVC. Their powder-coat finish also means you don’t ever have to worry about repainting.

In addition, aluminium bi-folds offer great weather resistance with a protective powder coating. This ensures your doors can stand strong in any type of weather.

Aluminium doors are lightweight, less costly and easier to install than timber doors. If you choose a high-quality aluminium frame material, aluminium doors can be just as robust as wooden bifold doors and will avoid unnecessary damage.

Many commercial spaces opt for doors with aluminium frames as they tend to be less susceptible to damage from heavy use and are low maintenance.

uPVC doors are often the cheapest choice for a door option, but they may not last as long as other materials and need regular maintenance to ensure that their strength and durability stay at a high level.

Why Choose Aluminium Bifold Doors?

Aluminium bifold doors are versatile and can be fitted with sliding door frames. You can also choose bifold French doors for added style and greater views of your garden or outdoor space.

The doors open with a seamless transition for easy access to your outdoor space. The slimmer frames sun smoothly on a sliding track and can be fitted with a secure locking system for added protection.

Aluminium bifold doors can be manufactured with double-glazing or triple-glazing options, further increasing their energy efficiency (U-Value).

Aluminium Bi Fold Doors Offer the Best View

One of the many benefits of bi-fold doors is the amount of natural light able to filter into any room. Aluminium bifold doors give you the option to open up your space with a larger door containing more glass, so you can enjoy stunning views across your garden.

Are Aluminium Bifold Doors Energy Efficient?

Yes! The energy efficiency of aluminium bifold doors is unparalleled, especially when you choose double-glazing or triple-glazed doors. The powder coating process also prevents the elements from entering your home, making aluminium bifold doors super thermally efficient.

Are Aluminium Bi fold Doors Cold?

High-quality bifold doors are not cold. Aluminium bi-folds are designed with special thermal breaks that help keep the heat in and the cold out. Not only is it highly energy efficient, but it also ensures that these doors are never cold to touch.
