Do Bifold Doors Let In The Cold?

Posted at

When investing in new home improvements, it's essential to consider your new solution's performance and thermal efficiency. You don't want to install a solution that leaves your home cold and unprotected from the elements. Bifold doors are an increasingly popular home improvement that enhances your home with an abundance of light and stunning panoramic views. Opening in a concertina style, they are a space saving home addition that adds both market value and visual appeal.


The most important question when considering bifold doors is, do bifold doors let in the cold? You can be sure that choosing bifold doors with My Bifold means your new bifold doors won't let in the cold.


Aluminium Bi-Folding Doors

Here at my bifold, we offer energy efficient bifold doors that utilise a market leading aluminium profile built from premium grade materials and advanced double glazing panes. Our bifold doors are built for lasting performance with outstanding hardware such as multiple hinges, handles and multi-wheeled rolling systems. Don't be fooled by the sleek look and slim sightlines of these bifold doors; they excel in strength, durability and thermal efficiency.


Our aluminium profiles deliver superior strength and rigidity, allowing the frame to securely hold expansive double glazing panels. Our profiles hold thermally efficient, toughened double glazed glass that offers minimised heat transmission and noise insulation. We offer 28mm double glazed units as standard, with an overall u-value of 1.5W/m²K using a 1.0 W/m²K centre pane. With exceptional double glazing, your home will retain its natural warmth, and you won't feel a cold breeze near your new bifold doors.


The high performance aluminium frame also provides superior performance in thermal efficiency. Each profile features a high performance polyamide bridge that upholds impressive insulation standards. Polyamide is shaped to produce the multiple thermal chambers within the aluminium bifold door profile, which optimises thermal performance. This design works to increase the heat retention of your property, ensuring warm air stays inside for longer.


Aluminium Bi-Fold & Patio Doors


Not only are our bifold doors extremely thermally efficient, but they also provide exceptional weather proofing. Our aluminium bifold doors are enhanced with EPDM rubber gaskets that help to seal your home. EPDN, or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, offers excellent resistance to ozone, oils, UV rays, and, most importantly, weathering. EPDM rubber gaskets serve as a seal to keep moisture out of your home. Weather brushes also act as a barrier around your bifold door, keeping pests outside and preventing dirt, dust, and debris from entering your home. They also help prevent any type of weather from entering your property, such as rain, wind, and snow. Both types of extremely useful hardware help to eliminate draughts and water ingress, keeping your property dry, clean, and stylish no matter what the weather outside is like.


Aluminium bifold doors from My Bifold are an excellent home improvement solution. They are a stunning home entrance option and offer outstanding functionality and performance whilst being a cost effective choice. Your home will save money in the long run if you invest in an energy efficient bifold door. Our bifold doors can trap and retain natural heat inside your home, preventing it from escaping through your expertly insulated door. This can result in a warmer home, and you will be less likely to turn on the central heating because your bifold door is already keeping your interior warm and cosy without the help of radiators. As a result, you will spend less on your energy bill because you will use your home's natural warmth.  As energy prices continue to rise, thermal efficiency is becoming increasingly appealing for homeowners, so a more cost effective alternative can be very beneficial for those looking to save money. 


Bifold doors are the ultimate option; the large glass panes seamlessly blend the outside and inside of your home, bringing nature indoors without bringing any adverse weather. The combination of impressive manufacturing, weatherproof hardware, aluminium framing and advanced double glazing make our bifold doors the perfect option for your home. These components work together to provide you and your home with low u-values, energy efficiency and stunning visual appeal.
