Bi-folding doors are really starting to take off now. It took a little time for the general public to become aware of their existence but now it is becoming a must-have home improvement product for all the house proud home owners out there!
You have to get the product right though. It needs to be easy to operate. Bi-folding doors can span quite large openings so the last thing the customer wants is for them to be hard to move around. They also need to have a choice of them opening inwards or outwards. Some might have garden furniture on their patio so to avoid losing that space they will need it to open inwards. Thresholds also have to be low. There’s no point in opening up all that lovely space just to have a great big trip hazard at the bottom catching everyone out. The Slimline Aspect bi-folding door by John Fredericks and produced by Eurocell ticks all those boxes nicely.
We currently have an Aspect bi-fold in our showroom and sits pride of place right at the front for everyone to see. It’s in Irish Oak and is a three part door. Every customer we demonstrate it to loves it and loves the idea of being able to open up all that space, whether it is in their conservatory or dining room. And that is the idea we should be selling to people when it comes to this product.
The Slimline Aspect doors come with a high security locking mechanism, quality Magnum high security door cylinder, full steel reinforcement and come with energy A rated glass specification. So as well as being functional and ‘grand design-esque’, they are a high security option too.
Whenever I speak to John Fredericks they always tell me how well they sell, and I can believe it. It is probably one of the best PVCu bi-folding doors on the market and the feedback we get from customer where we install them is 100% positive.

I think you are being very casual with the term A rated, and doesn’t behold such a well informed person as yourself. Next you’ll be saying A rated profile?
To be fair, I did say ‘A rated glass specification’, as in, argon gas, warm edge and so on. Not officially A rated like a window is. But I do understand your point.
I don’t recall there being an A rated glass specification at all, you could argue that the glass is of a specification that might be found in an A rated window , and it probably sounds ridiculously pedantic , but it is a fundamental lack of understanding of the whole WER thing that leads to claims like that, even worse , claims by the likes of Everest ( and probably Yourself ) to tell a prospect that your windows let in more heat than they lose.
Have you seen the New Wave door, blows traditional Bi Folds out of the water to be honest.
The new wave door is good and an alternative to a bi-fold, blow it out of the water? NO It doesn’t ! How long will “the company” be around?
Who knows how long any company is going to be around for, you only have to look at the big names on the high street that have gone over the last few years and we all know competitors that shouldn’t be around but they are.
If you dont believe it does then give some reasons as personally I cant think of one example where a Roto / Siegenia / traditional based bi folding door system is better than a New Wave door be it from a fabricator/installer/home owners perspective.
Bi folding doors are really a need for improving house interior. Now I prefer wave bi folding doors in comparison to traditional one because of their design and space coverage.
