At AluFoldDirect, we have a dedicated bi-fold manufacturing process which delivers you a precisely manufactured door ready to fit straight away.

The best way to do this is to have exact measurements of the hole, so we can precisely manufacture a door that’s the perfect fit to make your installation go more smoothly.

  1. Build/prepare the space where the aluminium bi-fold door will be fitted
  2. Measure the hole, brick to brick
  3. Order your made to measure bi-fold door from AluFoldDirect
  4. Your bi-fold door is delivered in one week unglazed and two weeks glazed, ready to fit straight away, right first time.

Measuring the space after it has been built eliminates the guess work and guarantees a right first time fit for your aluminium bi-fold doors.

This will eliminate installation issues on site and help ensure the installer gets paid, on time.

Once your bi-fold arrives, follow these four easy steps to install:

  1. Soak the gasket in a bucket of warm soapy water
  2. Check the outer frame is installed 100 percent level and square – ensuring all four sides are levels and that the diagonals are identical
  3. Fully toe & heel every sealed unit, this is crucial, to stop the sashes from dropping
  4. Install threshold gasket last
