Many installers are only just beginning to get acquainted with the rapidly growing bifold market though. Here are 10 reasons why you need to offer aluminium bifold doors as part of your range, now:

1. They have incredible aesthetics

Capable of utilising very slim sightlines, and larger areas of glazing, aluminium bifold doors can provide a home with an impressive appearance both inside and outside. The large glazed areas on a bifold door panel mean that more light is capable of being admitted into a room, making it feel brighter and bigger as a result.

Our aluminium bifold doors for instance are supplied with sightlines as slim as 133mm and a frame depth of 70mm for superb aesthetics.

2. They can attract a new type of customer
