Bifolding doors FAQ'S

Why should I choose an Express bifold door?

Each of our doors is manufactured in our factory by our skilled workforce and the latest CNC machinery available in the industry, with strict quality compliance procedures in place to ensure consistent quality.

And because we also install all our own products, we have a wealth of experience and expertise in this area, meaning we can offer you the best products possible alongside a 10 year guarantee on everything we produce.

Unlike other companies, who manufacture products that are installed by a dealer network or installers who buy products in, we take care of everything, from the sale and project survey to the manufacturing, installation, and aftercare.



All of our bespoke bifold doors are priced based on the type of door you choose, the size of the project in question, and your choice of colour. However, a typical Express installation of this kind could cost anywhere between £3,500 and £5000.

To find out how much your new installation could cost, it’s best to get in touch with our experts directly or check out our bifold doors cost guide.


If you want to install your new set of bifold doors as soon as possible then it’s best to speak with our team promptly. The sooner you discuss your requirements with our experts and settle on the type of folding door your want, the sooner we can manufacture and install your new household centrepiece.

Our sister Company Express Bi-Folds Direct also holds a large stock of pre-made, three-panel XP10 doors in black, and anthracite grey, as well as an additional size option for four and six-panel bifolds, for those after a basic installation.

The sizes available start from 2200mm x 2090mm up to 4800mm x 2090mm, and the doors are fully assembled, wrapped and ready for express delivery. Simply place your order online in any of our pre-made sizes without integral blinds, and you’ll have your freshly ordered XP10 door delivered to your home within days.


Are bi-folding doors better than sliding doors?

Both of the main types of doors we offer are popular products amongst architects, designers, and homeowners, and which door is better will come down to what you need or want in your home.

Our bifold doors are available with a normal door within them, a traffic door for everyday use, and can completely open up, immediately connecting the interior and exterior space.

Our sliding doors, on the other hand, don’t swing out into the garden or into the house, meaning they generally boast slimmer sightlines. A sliding door also allows for bigger panels, meaning more glass and less frame, but they cannot create a 90% clear opening like exterior bi-folding doors can.

We recommend visiting one of our showrooms to see both of our products first-hand so you can get a taste for what they can offer.


Are external bi-folding doors secure?

Yes, all our bifold doors boast high security, multi-point locking on the master door, and steel locking rods within the intermediate panels.  All the gearing is concealed within the doors themselves, and we use high-security 3-star diamond-rated BSI security cylinders as standard for our locks.

If security is a concern, then we also recommend glazing the door with laminated glass, as this is the police-preferred specification for preventing window related crime.


Can external bifold doors be used all year round?

There’s a common misconception that bifold doors can only be opened on the few days of the year when the temperature rises. But the fact is that, when the weather is pleasant and not windy, bifold doors can be fully opened to enjoy your garden and home together.

Whether it’s a leisurely breakfasts, a quick coffee in the morning, or a relaxing evening with a glass of wine, all are ideal opportunities to take advantage of having bifold doors throughout the year.

And don’t limit yourself to BBQs or scorching hot days; get in the habit of opening and enjoying your doors whenever it suits you. You’ll soon feel the benefits of an al-fresco lifestyle from February to October.


Folding doors of this type are very easy to use, however, they do require an initial demonstration of how they work. For example, the lead door always needs to be secured back against a panel catch when the bifold door is fully opened or closing to avoid injury.

Issues with external bi-folding doors can also be caused by misuse and incorrect operation, which is why we always do a demonstration upon handover and provide clear operation and maintenance instructions.


We do offer integral blinds in some of our folding doors, which can perfectly complement your new visual space as they never need cleaning and fold away when the doors are opened.

Speak with our experts for more information, or visit our uniblinds page.
