Choosing Aluminium Vs uPVC For Your Bifold Doors

Choosing Aluminium Vs uPVC For Your Bifold Doors

Aluminium Bifold Door

For a long time, uPVC had been seen as a lightweight, affordable and practical solution to window and door products. uPVC entered the market during the 1980s, and became a commonplace feature across households in the UK.

Aluminium vs PVC

Fast forward to today, and this is no longer the case. With almost 60% of all bi-fold doors being made in the UK with aluminium, surpassing just 27% made using PVC.

Aluminium bi-folds now take a commending stance in durability, resistance to corrosion, and frame strength. Thanks to technological advancement accompanied by innovative design and development.

Aluminium’s brawn over synthetic plastics places the material on top in terms of strength and security. Even slim and lightweight frames can support large glass panes effectively, making aluminium ideal for bi-folding doors. Aluminium’s strength allows us to offer market leading sash sizes of up to 1200mm wide and 3000mm tall with 120mm super slim sightlines. Enabling you to exploit natural lighting and paramount views.

Aluminium is not only the more practical solution to bifolding doors but it is also the more green choice. A thermal break prevents aluminium from conducting heat and cold from the outside. Combined with our U-values of 1.4 and 1.6 for triple and double glazing, respectively; ensuring that you keep warm and dry all year round. Well-insulating doors can cut your carbon emissions and energy bills, creating a more cost-effective and economically friendly property.
