Bifold doors, your choice for more light and better security.
Aspect is the advanced bifold patio door system from Home Quest. With ultra slim frames there’s nothing to obscure your view or stop all that extra light flooding into the heart of your home.
Aspect bifold doors glide open with the lightest of touches and fold back flatter than anyrival model. That means you can create a continuous ‘garden room’ that stretches form inside your home to the great outdoors in one single, uninterrupted space.
Bifold door opening configurations:
The beauty of a bifold door is the opening options you can demand. With each door acting independently of the others, yet with beautiful synchronicity, the opening options for Aspect bifold doors are endless, whether you're looking for inward or outward opening.
Colours to suit you
Warm in winter...
When the harsh British winter is in full swing, it’s vital that you choose bifold patio doors that will withstand that's thrown at them. This is why our UPVC doors are manufactured with a square-edge profile which gives a superior seal along door edges, making them draught and weatherproof.
Tested to BS6375-1:2009 (Performance of Windows and Doors), our doors far exceed the minimum requirements set out for the most extreme weather test. They also meet the British Standard minimum requirements for construction, security, safety, weather-tightness and strength of performance.
Our suppliers push the boundaries of design and performance, and our Aspect bifold doors are no exception with it being the only bifold door on the UK with BBA accreditation and Secured by Design status, together with U-Values as low as 0.9*
... and cool in summer
Imagine hosting a perfect Summer garden party or barbecue – your bifold door will offer seamless access between your home and garden. Plus, it will make it easier when you want to take your furniture outdoors for alfresco dining all while keeping your home cool.
Depending on the door configuration you choose, you can utilise various opening positions to allow refreshing ventilation into your home on those hot Summer days.
Picture a stunning panoramic wall of glass in your home. Something that modern bi-fold doors now deliver where space is limited or as a high-design, contemporary alternative to patio doors.
With ultra slim frames there’s nothing to obscure your view or stop all that extra light flooding into the heart of your home. State of the art frames and hardware now mean that doors open with the lightest of touches and fold back flatter than ever before. That means you can create a continuous ‘garden room’ that stretches from inside your home to the great outdoors in one single uninterrupted space.
As with any home improvement, it pays to consider the architectural style style of your home and ensure that the system you choose complements it. This is not to say you should be seeking an exact match – contrasting traditional with contemporary can look fantastic when done properly.
Bi-fold doors made from timber tend to be traditional designs; with deep bottom rails and darker colours, while those crafted from PVC-U and aluminium offer understated profiles with slimmer sightlines and on-trend contemporary colours such as pale green and grey.
And when it comes to colour, it’s not just a matter of exterior finishes: you can achieve striking contrasts by mixing and matching with the interior – be it in colour, white or woodgrain.
Here is a general guide on what colours to choose:
• Cream or light coloured window frame finishes go well with stone and buff-coloured brickwork
• White or grey complement red brickwork
• Solid colour or grey for timber weatherboarding
With such a wide choice now available, dark woodgrain finishes like Rosewood are no longer as popular.
Technical design, including hardware
Modern PVC-U bi-folds are designed from the bottom up using purpose-made systems, so ensuring that the doors work perfectly, time and time again, for years and years. Most bi-folds work on a track and roller system, which is crucial to smooth operation. Many will have a single track – often only at the top. While single-track systems can work well, a dual track carriage – with rollers at the bottom and security pins in the top track - offers better stability for smooth operation, guaranteeing trouble-free performance for the lifetime of the doors.
Hardware and handles are also critical for reliable performance, so establish whether the accessories to your doors are designed with bi-folds in mind, or are off-the-shelf that have been borrowed for use on them.
