bi-fold door materials
There are three basic bi-fold door construction/fabrication materials, these are; Aluminium, UPVC and Hardwood each of which have different attributes that support their use.
We however (as a company philosophy) through experience in the industry gained over nearly 30 years, ONLY SUPPLY ALUMINUM Bi-folding Doors because they are solid, reliable, secure and long lasting.
