Bi-Folding Doors
Extensions & Renovations


The owners of this detached property in East Yorkshire already benefited from relatively new windows and doors including a large rear balcony that leads out from the master bedroom. Underneath the balcony however they knew that they weren’t using their space to it’s full potential. The existing space comprised of thick framed windows and doors including a seven and three panel bi-fold door and fixed window split into two sections. The existing doors were clunky and difficult to operate, plus they looked old fashioned when viewed from the inside with thick frames dominated the outward views to the garden.

Out with the old

The homeowners decided to completely overhaul the space by installing a new open-plan kitchen that would site adjacent to a large sunroom, which in turn would lead out to a newly laid external patio area.  The plan was to modernise the look of the home from the inside and out, whilst significantly increasing their interior space, whilst making the most of the large & secluded garden, this led to the decision to replace the existing bifolds and window.

An inspirational & informative visit to our Leeds showroom

The homeowners visited our Leeds showroom to look at our bespoke products in detail, in particular to compare the differences between our bi-fold and sliding doors. Our team discussed their requirements in detail and the decision was made to use our industry leading XP View bi-folding door to transform their space.

Our showrooms are the perfect place to shop for premium windows and doors and you can visit us in Weybridge, Romford and Glasgow also.

What we delivered

The project included removing and taking away the existing the doors and preparing the opening with timber packers, which would eventually be concealed with aluminium pressings. The existing products were old fashioned and contained thick frames that reduced the amount of natural light coming into the property, so we combined the slender 90mm sightlines of our XP View bi-folding door with 1400mm folding door panels to create a stunning glass façade across the full width of the new sunroom.

This seven-metre bi-folding door is split into just five panels, replacing what was a seven-panel bi-fold so the difference in appearance between the two is remarkable. A three-panel bi-fold door was used on the return for quick and easy access out through the traffic door, while the opposite return followed the same theme of more glass and less frame as the existing two panel fixed window was replaced with a large picture window, to create a glass corner affect keeps the space looking bright and airy.

Our XP View bi-folding door

The XP View bi-folding door is most premium specification bi-fold door available. It boasts many notable qualities, but the two main features are perfectly displayed in this project. The narrow sightline of just 90mm is the slimmest on the market, bettered only slightly by our very own XP88 bi-folding door. The ability to offer 1500mm wide folding panels is another industry leading feature, driven by the demand for more glass and thinner frames, our XP View bi-folding door is a superb alternative to sliding patio doors, as large expanses can still look sleek and modern, but with the added benefit of being able to completely open the space to create a clear connection between inside & out.

Combining these features with superb thermal performance, security and built-in adjustment, results in our XP View bi-folding door being the leading bi-fold door system on the market. Contact our team for more information, or to discuss how these unique features could transform your space.

A stunning replacement installation

The benefits of this installation are clear to see. The new sunroom is a wonderful setting that is bathed in light from all angles, while framing the outward views of the landscaped garden. The space is contemporary but warm and will no doubt be enjoyed throughout the whole year. When the bi-fold doors are open the space is transformed further, a huge space that flows seamlessly from inside to out, and one that the homeowners cannot wait to enjoy in the Spring and Summer.
