We have built our success upon quality without compromise, so we constantly strive to improve our service levels, products & processes. We also understand that our people are as important as our machinery and that our materials are as important as our craftsmanship, so we strive for the best throughout all the facets of our company. From training & quality procedures, premium CNC machinery, innovative product launches through to unrivalled aftercare, we have been setting the standard since 2007.
We have whole-heartedly adopted aluminium as our material choice for the manufacture and installation of our entire bespoke product range. Aluminium is undoubtably the most suitable material for bi-folding doors due to the large expansive spans of the doors and their high number of components and moving parts. The growing demand for light filled, open plan homes has driven the popularity of bigger doors and windows with thinner frames, which can only be achieved by using aluminium door & window systems. Thermally broken aluminium is undoubtedly the most suitable material for today’s luxury homes and the manufacture of our specialist product range. Our products are constantly getting slimmer frames, lower U values & increased strength, which means our bespoke, British made aluminium products are ideally suited to residential & commercial projects, as well as grand feature projects such as the completed work displayed in our case studies. Aluminium can also be recycled infinitely, which is why it is considered one of the most environmentally friendly materials & the most recyclable industrial material. Along with the green benefits, aluminium is essentially maintenance free; meaning that keeping the bottom tracks clear is the only essential maintenance for our folding and sliding door systems.
The inherent strength of our aluminium profiles ensures our systems operate effortlessly as well as guaranteeing years of reliability and security. The constant advances in thermal break technology ensure that all our products surpass all current & future building regulations meaning that heat will be retained in a property throughout the colder months. Another major benefit is that unlike materials such as timber and PVC, aluminium does not breathe, nor expand or contract, meaning doors and windows can be taller and wider, without compromising the performance of the product. The strength of aluminium is why all commercial buildings in city centres and tall skyscrapers around the world are installed with aluminium products because they have been proven to stand the test of time.
We take great pride in our World Class 180,000 square foot manufacturing facility & operation. Boasting more than 200 on site staff we manufacture all our bespoke products in Leeds prior to delivering & installing them all over the UK. The manufacture of our products is born out of British craftsmanship & manufacturing that is complemented by the best CNC machinery.
Every single order that we receive is processed by our internal software & sent electronically to our CNC machines. The machines then prep the aluminium profiles for all our products, removing all human error and ensuring they are always cut, routered & end-milled perfectly before being fully manufactured, checked and packed by our expert staff.
Our small army of fabricators skilfully manufacture our full product range assisted at every step by the best possible working environment & machinery.
We have invested in specialist equipment for our specialist products such as our industry leading entrance doors and our structurally bonded skylights & sliding doors, which includes handling machinery that means our staff don’t have to touch or lift huge panels of glass throughout the all-important manufacturing process.
Aluminium can also be powder coated to any one of over 200 RAL colours. If this isn’t enough, we also offer various elite and essence colours which create a similar aesthetic to what you achieve with a granite work top. Our finishes are available in matt, gloss, satin & textured finishes. We can also offer dual colour finishes, with different colours on the interior & exterior faces of the profile.
We can provide colour samples of some of the finishes, but we always recommend visiting our showrooms to see various finishes displayed throughout our entire range of products.
Integral blinds are the ideal solution for bi-folding doors! Large amounts of glass need screening for privacy and to control light, and when combined with large clear openings this causes problems. Because they are contained within the glass itself, they can be concealed discretely when not in use, and stay out of the way when the doors are opened.
Integral blinds are permanently sealed within the double glazed unit & never need cleaning. They are available in a range of colours, can be operated manually or by remote control. They are also perfect windows and glazed doors particularly in rooms like kitchens, which generate a lot of moisture.
You want your new expanses of glazing to look great and suit your everyday needs to become a space that you can enjoy for twelve months of the year. Express Bi Folding Doors provides glazing which tick all these boxes.
Glass accounts for a significant amount of our products & the outer fabric of your home so it is crucial that premium quality glass is used. We offer top quality, toughened soft coat low E glass as standard but can offer glass for any application including enhanced security, solar control, obscure and triple glazed glass units.
