As the demand for bifold doors continues to grow across Hertfordshire and Middlesex, so do the enquiries for our exclusive Air bifold door range.

The way bi-fold doors intelligently and beautifully open up interiors is particularly appealing to homeowners who’ve set their hearts on the idea of contemporary ‘open plan living’ that’s so prevalent in today’s market.

Why we love Air bifold doors

Exceptional thermal efficiency
These days thermal efficiency is exceedingly important to diligent homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint, whilst saving on energy bills in the process. What’s so great about Air bifold doors is that they’ve successfully harnessed high performing innovative technology that has exceptional insulating and noise reducing qualities, with U-values from 1.4Wm²K. U-values measure how easily heat can pass through building materials, so the lower the value the least heat loss incurred; which is obviously great news for homeowners looking to combine stunning aesthetics with excellent thermal enhancing qualities.

Particularly with bifold door systems, high security locking mechanisms go hand-in-hand with high quality weather seals; which is where Air bifold doors come into their own. Utilizing strong and sturdy interlocking rubber weather seals, these are protected and strengthened further with a durable coating of Teflon. This added layer of protection effectively keeps bad weather out, as Teflon prevents dirt from sticking to the rubber which makes them exceptionally low maintenance too. Commanding demanding environments, these high-quality airtight seals keep bad weather at bay by profoundly withstanding gusts of up to 100mph whilst remarkably resisting drafts proactively around vulnerable spots such as the hinges.
Air bifold doors honestly live up to their name. Effortless sliding stainless steel rollers can withstand large panes of glass weighing up to 300kg with ease and finesse.
