Why you should use bifold doors for your kitchen

Bi-fold doors can transform any kitchen into a bright, airy and beautiful room. So if you’re looking to make the most of your kitchen space, bi-fold doors are a great place to start. While some homeowners build an extension or break a wall down in their home, you can make your home feel more connected to your outdoor living space and make it a more accessible, warmer place for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day.

Benefits of kitchen bi-fold doors

✔️ The widespan glass of bi-fold doors fills your kitchen with natural light, giving it a bright, airy feel – making your kitchen feel larger.

✔️ Bi-fold doors perfectly frame your garden view, showing off your outdoor living space.

✔️ Particularly when open, bi-folding doors offer uninterrupted space between your kitchen and garden, which is perfect for hosting barbecues and garden parties in the summer.

Home ventilation

There are some key considerations to make when installing your new kitchen bifold doors, especially if they’re external. When cooking, boiling liquids creates water vapour which turns into condensation when it makes contact with the cool, glass surface. In a kitchen this is unavoidable, so just make sure that your space is ventilated. With bi-fold doors, you can choose to have a traffic door, which you could leave ajar while cooking to improve the air circulation in your home.

Improved energy efficiency in your home

An energy efficient bi-fold door makes sure that your kitchen is well insulated. A well-insulated kitchen stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Our bi-fold doors offer impressive energy efficiency, boasting U-values as low as 1.5 W/m2K for our aluminium range and 1.4 W/m2K for our aïr 800 bi-fold doors. The lower the U-value, the better your insulation will be.

Home accessibility

When opening your kitchen bi-fold doors, they operate smoothly and seamlessly, while all the panels neatly stack in the corner of the room. Thanks to this, you can open up a whole wall in your home to create seamless living between the outside and inside.

Quickslide vertical slider

Vertical sliding sash windows are designed to provide modern performance with traditional aesthetics. They are the perfect choice for heritage buildings, Victorian and Georgian properties, and add a touch of class to any modern home thanks to the authentic style.

Quickslide vertical sliders work in the same way as traditional sliding sash windows, where both the top and bottom panes move to allow the circulation of air.

The PVCu frames are fitted with multiple chambers, designed to offer impressive performance against the unpredictable British weather. Double glazing is also fitted as standard to retain as much heat as possible, reducing draughts and cold spots.

How they work

Vertical sliding sash windows have a unique vertical opening which can enhance any home. They work on a pulley system so instead of pushing the window outwards, like in a standard design, you’ll be able to push the window upwards. A typical sash window has a sill, top and bottom rails, timber linings, sash weights, and cords. All of these aspects work in harmony, so the window can move freely and function effectively.

Traditional style

PVCu Sliding Sash Window


Vertical sliding sash windows offer unique, traditional character, perfectly complementing period properties and adding character to new builds. This makes them a popular choice for replacing timber sash windows, as they perfectly replicate the traditional style, thanks to the vintage aesthetics.

Colour options

Choose from a carefully selected range of stock colours for your sliding sash windows. Create a classic, natural feel for your home and select a realistic wood effect or make a sleek, subtle contrast with black frames. If you have a new build, grey sash windows are a very popular choice and we also offer smooth wood effect finishes for more traditional properties. You can also choose heritage tones including Chartwell Green.

Security features

Travel Restrictor - Chrome

Quickslide vertical sliders feature advanced levels of security without complex operation. They are practical and come with all the security features you need. There is the option to take advantage of a comprehensive high security upgrade package, which meets all the requirements for PAS 24 to ensure safety and security for your home, keeping you and your family secure.
