Throughout this blog, we’ll delve into the numerous benefits of bifold doors, exploring how they can transform homes, improve quality of life and add value to properties.

Natural Light

The large glass panels of bifold doors allow ample natural light to enter your living space, offering unobstructed views of your outdoor living space. This increase in natural light not only creates a more welcoming living space but also can improve your mood and productivity. And when open, bifold doors provide plenty of fresh air into your home. 

Additionally, a properly-glazed window regulates the temperature of your home, so you’ll use less energy to heat your home and decrease your heating and cooling costs. Whether it’s our taller aluminium bifold doors or our slimline collection, both will improve the natural light entering your home.


Bifold doors offer a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor living space. When closed, they create the illusion of a larger living space thanks to their large glass panels. 

And unlike traditional sliding or patio doors, aluminium bifold doors take up minimal space when open, creating a seamless living space. This makes them the perfect doors for those who like to host or would just like to maximise their home’s living potential. 


Bifold doors are fully customisable, allowing you to customise them to suit your preferences and complement your home’s existing decor. 

Everything from the number of panels to the colour to the glazing of bifold doors is fully customisable. NOW Aluminium also offers manual, integral, and venetian for added privacy. 


Bifold doors add an aesthetic advantage to your home with contemporary design. The sleek framing and large window panels create a modern aesthetic that many homeowners currently seek out. The seamless transition bifold doors offer between indoor and outdoor spaces creates a unique and contemporary living space. The unobstructed views of your garden or patio are also a huge benefit of having bifold doors installed. 


Bifold doors also require minimal maintenance and are quite easy to clean as they have less moving parts and experience less wear and tear compared to swinging doors. Materials like aluminium are also less resistant to warping and bending when temperatures and weather fluctuate. 


Bifold doors feature a multi-point locking system, providing your home with a higher level of security that other doors cannot offer. Our door’s locking systems are made with materials 25% denser than iron and twice the number of pins than the average lock. 

If attacked, the barrel enters ‘lockdown mode’, meaning the lock is practically impenetrable without heavy and noisy power tools.
