Aluminium Bi Folding Doors

The folding and sliding doors which Bedford Bi-Fold markets are designed to generate open, versatile and contemporary surroundings at home and work. Their unique pop-out T-handle prevents projections that would otherwise prevent panels from being stacked close together.

They come with different low-threshold options to accommodate variances in floor-levels- and to reduce or eliminate the need for a step. All doors can be coloured with any one of the 5,000 in the RAL range, making it easy to match your doors with existing furnishings. There are further options for integrated blinds, control glass, self-cleaning glass and solar glass.

Connecting Customers with Installers

We connect domestic customers to approved local installers. This secures for them a capable, safe and economic service.

Bedford Bi-Folds has a network of approved installers, each of whom is proven to be capable of fitting our products to the standards we set. Thus they benefit from not only good prices for the products themselves but good prices for the installation service too. Customers contract directly with these installers. So there are no middle-men!

Using approved installers protects the manufacturer’s guarantee. But there is a FENSA (Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme) guarantee for the installation too. (FENSA underpins building regulations, and MoneySavingExpert.com warns of windows that with no FENSA certificate there is no guarantee.) Customers save ca 25%, this way, on our doors if fitted by our approved installers.

Designed for Security – And Certified as Such

All of our aluminium bi-folding doors comply with the requirements of the Official Police Security Initiative (OPSI) and are thus formally accepted to be Secure by Design (SBD)

Our systems meet and often exceed the requisite level of security.

SBD certification ensures that British homes fitted with products from Bedford Bi-Folds which bear this standard are compliant so at reduced risk of burglary.

More Colours than You Can Shake a Stick At.

Bedford Bi-Folds doors and windows come in lots of colours. Yes we have standard colours but we can supply anything in the full 5,000-colour RAL spectrum. And you can have different colours inside and out (though there is an extra charge for this). Moreover the use of high-quality powders enables the manufacturers to give users a 25 year guarantee.

Standard colours are always available off the shelf at Bedford Bi-Folds. They include:

RAL 9005 – Jet Black

RAL 9011 – Satin Black

RAL 7016 – Anthracite Grey

RAL 9910 – High Gloss Hipca White

Special colours (i.e. any other RAL colour, with 5,000 to choose from) and dual colours (e.g. white inside but grey outside) can take a further six weeks to deliver. This customisation attracts a further £480 supplementary charge.

Intrinsically Safe

OUR DOORS ARE DESIGNED AND BUILT WITH OUTSTANDING SAFETY FEATURES.

Our homes are our castles. They need to facilitate safety and security, around the clock, for everyone – not just children, single females and the elderly. Bedford Bi-Folds products boast a raft of safety features that include: Double-finger safe gaskets to avoid trapped fingers, An easy-access disabled-threshold option and Anti-slam magnets.

Effortlessly-Smooth Operation

SMOOTH GLIDING BIFOLDING DOORS

The doors supplied by Bedford Bi-Folds run on four-wheel bogies which glide along stainless-steel grooves. They are not only safe and stable but designed to last, with minimal maintenance, for decades.

The nature of these doors means that they provide the requisite security yet are easily operated in order to allow access and egress. That minimalist barrier makes going to and from the home and garden a joy.

Bedford Bi-Folds - Versatile Solutions

THE PERFECT SOLUTION, DESIGNED TO FIT…

Bedford Bi-Folds doors can replace entire walls to capitalise on space. Or, where space is not at a premium, they can be utilised to let residents enjoy it.

They are supplied in several designs and styles with stackable panels that can be located wherever purchasers want them as long as it’s practicable. Our designers will help you to realise your ideas, developing made-to-measure customised solutions.

A Great Colour Palette

AN UNLIMITED CHOICE OF COLOUR THAT’S ALL YOURS.

There are up to 5,000 RAL colours available. RAL colours are essentially standardised so that they can be matched by different suppliers of soft furnishings, paints and more. It should be easy to match purchases from Bedford Bi-Folds! But be aware that colours viewed online can be different in shade and tone, for a variety of reasons, to these standard colours.

See our guide. Our standard colours include:RAL 7016 – Anthracite Grey/ RAL 9910 – High Gloss Hipca White /RAL 9005 – Jet Black – These here colours are all standard so there’s no charge for any of them. But other RAL colours attract a £240 colour supplement charge. And there is necessarily a delay on delivery of custom solutions.

If you want twin-colour doors (e.g. white inside but grey outside) then this customisation attracts a further £480 supplementary charge. Again there is necessarily a delay on delivery of custom solutions.

Thresholds

Flush or raised thresholds

Our bi-fold doors provide a contemporary and minimalist barrier between home and garden, between the wildness outdoors and the climate-controlled environment inside. 

They are designed, manufactured and tested to comply with prevailing standards and expectations. Yet part of what Bedford Bi-Folds does is catering for individuals as well as for commonly-held needs.

With that in mind we offer two different threshold options for internal use since neither is weather-proof, namely:

A low-level 32mm-high option

An ultra-low-level 22mm-high option

Both of these enable fitters to optimise the levels which each of your bi-folds straddle.

Ask your fitter for more information on the options available
