Reduce energy bills with thermally efficient aluminium bifold doorsMore than Bifold Doors.

When you choose aluminium patio doors, you're not just choosing a means to enter and exit your home. The right choice of door will enhance the comfort and aesthetics of your home and be central to how you entertain and enjoy your home. Aluminium patio doors are high on the wish list for homeowners so if you decide to put your home on the market, the doors you choose could have an effect on its saleability. Aluminium patio doors should be considered an investmentment, not an expense.


Create the Perfect Living Space.

The only limit is your imagination. The right bifold doors not only make a difference to the room they are in but can also make a difference to how much you use your patio area.

We're all spending more time at home now. Creating a space that you can enjoy as a family or to entertain friends isn't just a luxury for these strange times we live in. It's an investment in your home that that you'll benefit from for years.

With our premium grade aluminium bi-folds, you can create the perfect outdoor living area for your home. Whether it’s an extension of your kitchen or a place to entertain guests, we have the right door for any situation. With our wide range of colours and designs, there’s something to suit every taste.


Aluminium Bifold Doors for Strength and Durability.

The physical strength of aluminium is reflected in its narrow sightlines, long guarantees and resilience to flex, expansion or contraction.

Origin takes pride in ensuring that no door leaves Origins state-of-the-art factory without having gone through rigorous quality testing at every stage of the manufacturing process. You can buy your Origin bi-fold doors with peace of mind, knowing that you’re choosing something which is truly built to last.

The in-house research and development team works tirelessly to refine how they develop and manufacture Origin bi-fold doors, ensuring that they are equipped with the highest-quality features and components.

Origin is so confident in their doors that they offer an industry-leading 20-year guarantee with every installation. This coupled with the pride that we take in installing them makes them the perfect choice for customers who want to ensure that they buy a product that will enhance their home for many years to come.

Styles to Suit Any Property.

Whether incorporated into a new-build, an extension or an older period-style property, the Origin Aluminium Bi-fold doors have expansive glass panels which give you an uninterrupted widescreen view of the outdoors, letting you enjoy your home and its surroundings all year round.


Thermally Efficient.

In the old days, aluminium was thought not to be very thermally efficient. With improved insulating technology, a polyamide thermal break now gives increased thermal performance to our aluminium bifold doors. All of our bifold doors meet current Building Regulations for thermal performance with U-Values of 1.5Wm2K with our standard glass specification. 


Origin bi fold doors are available in 150 RAL colours with dual colour options.

The Widest Choice of Colours.

Origin Aluminium Bi-fold doors are usually available in any RAL colour due to the powder coating process used to colour them. Stock colours are available with a shorter lead time.

Whether incorporated into a new-build, an extension or an older period-style property, the Origin Aluminium Bi-fold doors have expansive glass panels which give you an uninterrupted widescreen view of the outdoors, letting you enjoy your home and its surroundings all year round.


Bifold Door Security.

You want to feel that your home is secure when you're in it and when you are away. Origin bi-fold doors exceed the latest security standards (including PAS 24 and Secured By Design). Origin Bi-fold doors use a unique 8-point locking system with heavy-duty zinc hinges designed to resist attacks from intruders. The cylinder lock will withstand common housebreaking techniques such as snapping, picking, drilling and bumping.

Strong aluminium frames and high quality security features combine to give you a bifold door that is the most secure on the market.


Bifold Door Safety.

Bi folding doors are often central to entertaining which means you need eyes in the back of your head to track children running around. At least you can be secure knowing that they won't trap their fingers in the doors. Finger safe gaskets prevent fingers from getting trapped in closing doors and magnetic catches hold the doors in place while being operated.

Origin Bi-fold door features


Origin OB-49 Aluminium Bifold Doors.

For the slimmest aluminium bifold frames, choose Origin's Ob-49. The unbelievably thin frames give an elegant appearance and almost uninterrupted view of the garden. This premium aluminium product comes with one of the best locking systems on the market for your peace of mind.

Each door sash is only 49mm or 2 inches wide while the strength of the aluminium still allows wide expanses of glass.

Each run of of doors can be up to 7 leaves with a choice of threshold heights to give you a seamless transition to the garden.


Origin OB-72 Aluminium Bifold Doors.

The OB-72 Origin Bifold door is the original door concept. With the same colour options as the OB-49, this range also offer greater choice of personalisation and high standards of thermal efficiency and security. The frames are slightly wider at 72 mm but are slightly cheaper than the slimmer framed OB-49.


White origin bifold doors CardiffPersonalise Your Bifold Doors.

While most of our Cardiff customers prefer a minimilist style for their bifold doors, choosing sleek uncluttered frames in anthracite, black, and white, there are plenty of options to choose from to make your doors unique to you.

Colour Choice.

With 150 different Ral colours you are spoilt for choice. You don't need to worry about clashing with your interior as whatever colour you choose for the outside, you can have neutral white on the inside.

Door Configuration.

Most people instantly think that patio doors should open centrally. It's natural to think this as the eye always looks for balance and symmetry. For patio doors, it makes sense to put the need for symmetry aside and look for what makes sense practically.

The first consideration is the most common path that you will take to the door. If the master door is in the centre, will you have to walk around furniture to get there. In the picture shown, it would probably make most sense to have the master door at the far right as there is a natural corridoor from the kitchen door.

You don't need to worry about spreading the load by centralising the door. Your doors will glide smoothly whether you're opening two or doors or seven.

What will they be like when they are open. If seven doors stack to the side, will they affect the patio area where they will sit? Consider where you will be placing furniture. If you plan to put a sofa along the doors, you will not want the master door directly behind it.

Open In or Out?

Most homeowners want to maximise the space inside and choose for the doors to open ouside of the frame into the garden. Origin bifold doors give you the option to open inwards if you prefer. For some customers, this is preferable if there is a wall that the doors can stack against so that they are unobtrusive.

Glazing bars offer an added dimension to your bi folding doors. These were popular in the 1930s and again in the 80s with the old steel Crittal doors. Glazing bars are making a comeback again and are popular with those that want a slightly more industrial look.

Bifold Door Furniture.

Origin bifold doors come with a comprehensive range of hardware and handles in stainless steel, colour matched with your door or as a contrast. You can even match your hinges to the handle if you wish.

Door Width.

The door width can also make a difference to the overall look. While you can have doors up to 1200 mm wide, you want the door arrangement to look balanced. If there are other doors and windows in view, you could start with considering a width that is similar to those. See the table below for the optimum. Optimum sizes are shown in mid green, narrow doors in light green and wide doors in dark green.

Fewer doors cost less, as you would expect because there is less frame and reduced manufacturing costs. Don't automatically choose the widest doors possible to reduce the cost as when you are investing in your home, it's important that you love what you are paying for. We will help you choose the best configuration for your doors but use this handy guide to get an idea of what is possible.
