Bifold Doors: 5 Reasons Why They’re a Great Investment.

Bifold doors are widespan glazed doors that fold in and out. Made from a series of panels that fold against a wall resembling a concertina, they are usually glazed with between 2 and 6 large glass panels. Bifold doors are an essential if you are looking for easy door access, and include a traffic door for daily use. Typically found at the back of the house leading onto the garden, they can be customised using different colours and configurations to complement your property. The doors fold in on themselves using a simple tracking system that runs along the panels, enabling the doors to glide in a smooth and quiet motion.

If you’re still unsure as to why to invest in bifold doors, We Buy Any House have compiled their top 5 reasons why bifold doors are a necessity for your projects

1. Endless Configuration Options:

Aluminium has fast become the most popular material for homeowners looking to add cutting-edge style to their homes. The slimline frames add contemporary, modern style, taking projects to the next level.

The large glazed areas that bifold doors offer creates a wall of glass, which adds stunning style and a beautiful open plan living space, while flooding your living space with natural light.

3. Energy Efficient Weather Control:

Throughout the summer months, bifold doors are essential for letting cool air into your property. By leaving the doors wide open on a hot day, cool air can circulate and ventilate your home – removing the need for free-standing fans or air conditioning.

Alternatively, during winter months bifold doors can actually reduce your bills as the sturdy aluminium frames and double glazing makes them brilliantly energy efficient, retaining heat without the risk of draughts and cold spots. The doors are designed to seal your home externally, and if the sun is left to shine through the widespan glass all day into your home, the doors will keep the heat trapped.

4. Design Flexibility:

Available in a range of colours, sizes, number of panels and opening styles, bifold doors can be tailored to your exact needs.

The option to fold the doors to either the left or right ultimately makes bifold doors the most versatile widespan door option.

5. Low Maintenance:

Panel sizes

Aluminium bifold doors

For both our Bowalker aluminium and aïr 800 bifold doors, you can choose from a range of configurations to suit your living space, to make life easier for the whole family when nipping in and out of the house, as well as creating a stunning, open plan living area.

aïr 800 bifold doors create large openings for your space with impressive panel dimensions of 1.2m wide and 3m high along with sightlines as slim as 108mm. Bowalker’s standard aluminium bifold door panels are available in a maximum height of 2.5m and maximum width of 1m.

Panel options

The size of your bifold door opening ultimately depends on the size of your wall. So, the larger your wall is, the larger your bifold door can be to make use of the space. You can also choose the number of panels for your bifold doors. The more panels you opt for, the more open space you will add into your home. For example, if you have 10 panels at 1.2m wide, you can create a feature wall of glass that’s an amazing 12m wide.

Opening your bifold doors

Both ranges are designed to completely open up your living space. You can have your bifold doors stacked inside or outside and have them either completely fold away to open in one direction or split to fold on both sides. Additionally, you can choose whether your doors open from the left or right, which is determined by what will suit your living space best and how you’d like the layout of your room to be.

Traffic doors

Whilst having a wall of glass that completely unfolds is a great way to open up your home, sometimes it’s handy to have the option of a smaller opening too. This is when a traffic door can be implemented. These are built into the bifold door system, but open separately so they can be used as a single door. This way, you can have quick, and easy access to your garden as and when you need to nip out.

Colour options

Do I need planning permission to install doors?

It’s a question we’re asked a lot, and generally if you’re replacing like with like it’s unlikely that you’ll need planning permission. However, if you’re remodelling your home, building a new extension or adding a garden room, it’s a good idea to check before you get started.

So for products like bi-fold doors or sliding doors where they’re often part of an extension or remodelling project, it’s worth investigating a bit more.

Planning permission and remodelling your home

In fact, even if you’re removing large amounts of internal, or even external walls, you’ll often find that planning permission isn’t needed. But you’ll definitely need to comply with building regulations, and if you’re doing a lot of structural changes you may need calculations done by a structural engineer.

The removal of walls can create exciting new open plan areas in your home, while it doesn’t add extra square footage, it can often make better use of the available space – and if you’re adding large span glazing, you’ll get the extra natural light and lifestyle benefits.

Planning permission for part of an extension

There are times where planning permission is necessary for doors. Certainly, if it’s part of a larger extension, you’ll need planning permission. But bear in mind that currently if you’re extending up to 6 metres, or up to 8 metres if you have a detached house, then you don’t need permission as it comes under permitted development which is a relaxation of the planning permission normal rulings.

If you’re going bigger than this – or two storey – you’ll need to get planning permission. We can help you with this as we work closely with the planning departments on larger projects. We can also work directly with your architect in the early stages to get the glazing options you want designed in from the start.

Planning permission for heritage and listed buildings

Planning permission laws are different for heritage and listed buildings, as well as properties on ‘designated land’ or protected areas or if your home is in a Conservation Area, National Park or an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Sometimes, especially with listed buildings, planning permission can be complex and every material, design and colour choice must be justified. At Bowalker Doors, because we offer such a wide range of glazing, we can help with finding the right products for your project to meet the requirements.

For non-listed properties, there are often specific restrictions or certain material or colours that are needed. Again, if you need help with getting the glazing right within your planning application, we can help.

Planning permission for loft conversions

For the majority of loft conversions, planning permission isn’t need, as generally they fall under your permitted development rights. However, you will need planning permission if your home renovation plans exceed certain limits and conditions, such as altering or extending the roof space beyond its current limits. Increasing the amount of glass can create the need for planning permission and we’re happy to share our experience to help you out with this, so you don’t need to worry!

Planning permission for balconies

Balconies are a special case. If you want to add one to your property, then you need to make sure you have planning permission for that too, especially if they’re overlooking other people’s gardens. You want to make best use of a view, so by getting the planning permission you need from us at Bowalker Doors, you’ll be able to create the perfect balcony for your home.

The Bowalker Doors range includes:

  • Bi-fold doors – Glazing that creates the largest of openings, with impressive dimensions of up to 3m in height and 1.2m wide. They’re ideal for making the most of a properties space with a concertina style opening that easily folds away.
  • Sliding doors – With a max height of 2.7m and a max width of 2.5 metres per panel, the large yet smooth glazed doors create uninterrupted views for a property.
  • Entrance doors – We offer a range of different composite door options so you can choose top performance security and high energy efficiency whilst making a stunning entrance.
  • Rooflights – Create a ceiling of glass with slim frames and impressive size options including 1500mm by 7450mm and 2750mm by 8700mm.

All buildings need building regulations

Bowalker Air 800 Bifold With Alitherm 300 Windows

All properties that are undergoing home improvements like extensions need building regulations. Bowalker Doors does this through its membership with FENSA.

FENSA is a government approved certification body that guarantee compliance with local building regulations, deposit cover protection as well as the required insurance backed guarantee. This way you don’t have to get approval yourself as you’ll be dealing with installers that are helping you out with it all.

We always check if we need approval of building regulations before constructing or altering buildings in any way. There are several sections within the building regulations that relate to the fitting of doors. These include fire safety, so you can ensure a safe means of escape from your home, and sound insulation, particularly relevant if you’re in a flat or apartment, so that your doors are constructed in a way that reduces sound and are fitted with acoustic seals.

New builds and extensions have to adhere to Document Q

If you’re looking to extend your property or start from scratch, your project needs to adhere to Document Q. Luckily for you all our products we offer at Bowalker Doors comply with these regulations. They are manufactured to a design that has met the security requirements of British Standards publication PAS 24, meaning you are safe and protected in your home. Document Q ensures that your door is mechanically fixed to the structure of the building in accordance with our installation instructions.

Bowalker Doors

Whether you’re replacing existing doors or starting from scratch, planning permission doesn’t have to be complicated. If you want more information on planning permission, building regulations or any of the home improvement products in our range, please call us, we are always happy to help!

How lockdown changed the way we spend time in our homes


As we’ve spent more time indoors, inside our homes this year, we’ve seen a huge increase in homeowners around Sussex and Surrey looking to make changes to their homes.

We’ve realised that a house is more than just somewhere we eat, sleep and bathe. Instead, we’ve seen the importance of making sure we feel at home when we’re at home. Making the most of our living spaces to enjoy the company of our family, master a new culinary skill or scouting out a private sanctuary spot to enjoy some R&R.

While there are some homeowners that have already created perfect living spaces to make the most of their homes, it’s caused lots of homeowners to consider how they can adapt their homes to make them more liveable.

Bowalker Doors are here to help.

We’re really appreciating our kitchens

Bowalker Doors Bifold Doors Crawley

From banana bread to fakeaways, home happy hours to whipped coffee, we’ve seen so many food trends grace our kitchens and social media feeds since March.

As a nation, we’ve taken this time at home to experiment with different recipes. Even though the restaurants, pubs and bars are back open, we have a newfound appreciation for the creations we can make and bake at home.

If you’ve found yourself struggling for space, feeling cramped in the 4 walls of your kitchen, running into the rest of the family rummaging through the cupboards for some snacks for their Netflix binge session, or searching for the perfect backdrop for your snaps of your latest kitchen creation, only to be met with dark, dull backdrops, you may need a kitchen extension.

Extra space and heaps of natural light can be added to your kitchen.

With widespan architectural aluminium, your kitchen can be extended. Bifold doors or lift & slide doors can be added to your kitchen, leading out onto the garden to create a more open space. As well as adding space, widespan aluminium doors will flood your kitchen with natural light.

Choose Skypod rooflights for optimum levels of natural light on flat roof extensions.

If your kitchen is at the front of your house rather than the back, you can install large aluminium windows for more light and a greater feeling of open space.

We want to create our own space to entertain ourselves

Bowalker air bifold doors for Bighton renovation

Once you’ve whipped up your amazing new recipes, you need a space to enjoy the fruits of your labour. Whether that be a home bar, a new dining room or a snug, homeowners have been craving spaces to replace the pub, bars and restaurants they missed during lockdown.

We’ve seen a huge increase in the popularity of home bars in Sussex and Surrey. If you haven’t already, check out our blog on how to create your home bar.

It’s easy to create bright, open spaces, stylish that make us forget that we’re within the 4 walls of our homes with the addition of widespan aluminium doors can do just that.

As well as adding extra light through the large glazed areas, and extending your living spaces to the outdoors thanks to the wide openings, aluminium doors add stunning style and can be designed in any RAL colour so you have full design flexibility. You can also choose from a range of configurations and opening styles so you can design the perfect space for you.

We need space to relax – on our own!

air lift & slide door home trends

We can’t deny that being cooped up inside with our families has proven interesting. As much as we love them, no one can get on your nerves quite like your own flesh and blood.

We all need our own space to escape from the madness and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Perhaps you’ve found a forgotten corner of your house that no one visits, and you’ve claimed it as your private sanctuary. Although it’s quiet, if it’s dark and dingy, it can spoil the mood.

Add much needed light with large aluminium windows or doors, or a skylight.

We want the style of our home to reflect our personal style

Bifold door benefits


Have you been ordering bits and bobs for around the house to make it more homely and stylish? The more time we’ve spent at home, the more we’ve realised that how we furnish our home makes all the difference.

Colour and design style are ways for us to reflect our personal style within our home.

But it doesn’t stop at interior style. The style of our windows and doors is a great way to showcase our individual tastes.

There was a huge trend on social media for pink doors, with #PinkDoor reaching nearly 65,000 posts on Instagram. That’s because front doors are no longer seen as just a practical necessity – they’re a design choice too.

You can choose from a range of composite entrance doors – classic to contemporary – in a selection of colours, with lots of hardware options too, to give your home the entrance it deserves.

We’ve been installing cutting-edge glazing in and around Sussex and Surrey for more than a decade, and our 2 founders, Peter Walker and Anthony Bowyer, have more than 60 years’ experience between them in home transformation.
We’re been involved in some state-of-the-art projects, working with homeowners and architects to recommend and install clever architectural glazing solutions.

Showroom COVID-19 updates

Showroom hallway

We made updates to our showroom to ensure that it was safe to open to the public, so you can have full peace of mind when you visit us in Hickstead, Haywards Heath.
We’ve kitted out the showroom with hand sanitising stations, are cleaning regularly between visits, and have put social distancing measures in place, so you can still browse our range of products safely.
The showroom is open 8am-4pm Monday to Friday and we ask that you book an appointment to visit. Simply call the office on 01444 810111, email info@bowalkerwindows.co.uk or send us a message online.
