Available in more than 200 RAL colours, Kloeber’s range of timber bi-fold doors includes this vibrant design finished in Pastel Turquoise. Available in set sizes, and made-to-measure to bespoke specifications and colour requirements up to H270xW85cm per panel, the doors are made from FSC-certified softwood, hardwood or oak and can come double or triple glazed. With triple glazing, the doors can achieve a U-value as low as 1.2W/m2K, depending on size, configuration and species of timber. Prices start at £2,640 for a hardwood three-leaf door set measuring H209xW179cm.
Bi-fold doors can look fantastic in a traditional setting such as an orangery extension, when matched with a large expanse of glazing elsewhere in the design. This modern-style four-leaf set in white by Anglian Home Improvements features wide panels across a W386cm opening to make the most of the views onto the garden, and to maximise light, while complementing the more classic leaded design of the windows. Made from powder-coated aluminium, the doors feature high-security hinges in line with Secured By Design specifications, top and bottom shoot bolts, and a multipoint locking system on the main entry door. This system is priced around £800–£1,200 per panel, compatible with a maximum opening of W620cm.

Allowing in plenty of natural light and creating a largely uninterrupted view out to the garden, Apropos’ W61cm wide-pane bi-fold doors are the ideal solution for blurring the boundaries between inside and out.
The Signal Grey aluminium and solar-control glazed doors include dual-entry points for user flexibility, giving the option to have one leaf open when needed for access, in addition to the full-width opening. This design measures H214xW410cm and costs from £15,000.
Climadoor’s Elite oak doors have a low U-value of 1.3W/m2K, providing excellent thermal performance that exceeds the energy-efficiency requirements set out in the building regulations, and helping to reduce fuel bills. With a durable timber veneer finish on both the interior and exterior, they are the ideal addition to either a modern or traditional-style home, and come fully prefinished with a solid engineered core in a range of off-the-shelf sizes to suit up to a H210xW480cm six-door system as shown, which costs £3,149.
A corner door set is the perfect way to add wow factor, enhancing the feeling of space and linking to the outdoors. This 10-door, five-by-five unit from Origin includes two supporting columns at each end point of the doors, helping to evenly distribute their weight. There is also a steel ring beam and cantilevered steel around the top of the structure for additional support, meaning no supporting posts need to be on display. The aluminium doors are powder-coated in Anthracite Grey externally and Hipca White internally. From £1,000 to £1,200 per H229xW76.5cm door leaf.
Sleek drainage idea
IQ Glass’ latest technology means you can achieve a fully flush threshold between inside and out, while maintaining adequate water drainage at the join. The step-free flush threshold drain on these HS bi-fold doors prevents water from settling in the tracks – instead it drains it away at a rate of 120 litres per minute – and it’s guaranteed not to rust, corrode or stain. The drain can be powder-coated in any RAL colour to match your chosen design, or finished in silver. These H260xW460cm HS bi-fold doors in Anthracite Grey cost from £500 per square metre.
