Are Bifold Doors Energy Efficient?
As the cost of living and energy prices rises in the UK, more and more homeowners are looking for ways to reduce their energy consumption and save some money on heating bills. At Arkay, we invest in solutions that improve the performance and efficiency of any property they are installed in. We assure you that the functionality and aesthetics of your home will be fully in your control.
Our stunning range of bifold doors is expertly designed to add a touch of elegance and improve the thermal comfort of your property. We offer effortlessly slim UniFOLD doors, ALUK BSF70 HI bifold doors, ALUK LUMINIA F82+ bifold doors, and Schüco’s ASS 70 FD bifold doors. We provide a wide range of customisation options within each model, including double and triple glazing, sizes, security locks and handles.
If you are looking to enjoy clear and beautiful views of your garden or patio, our UniFOLD doors with just 120mm glass to glass sightline offer large scale glazing opportunities. The smooth mechanism allows these super sturdy doors to glide across effortlessly and create seamless transitions to the outdoors.
For maximum thermal efficiency, you can choose triple glazing, which uses three strong glass panes separated by a small vacuum in between making, allowing to trap the warm air inside and keep the cold air out. We are proud to offer these high performing profiles that can achieve U-values from 1.4 W/(m2K) and are class 4 air permeability, indicating these doors have been tested under high pressure.
UniFOLD bifold doors will keep your home protected against harsh weather conditions. They are incredibly secure, watertight, airtight, and fully integrated with a multipoint locking mechanism.
ALUK Bifold Doors
Our ALUK BSF70 HI and ALUK LUMINIA F82+ bifold door models perfectly combine design and functionality. Aluminium is an inherently strong and robust material lending structural integrity to the architecture and protects your home from harsh weather conditions. With triple glazing, ALUK BSF70 HI bifold doors can achieve U-values as low as 1.1 W/(m2K), bringing warmth and comfort to your home.
The Class 4 air permeability, Class 5 wind resistance, and Class 9A water tightness indicate that these bifold doors have been thoroughly tested to ensure protection from natural elements. As the cold draught and rain will not enter your home and the heat retention designs of our bifold doors will ensure there is no loss of warm air, you will see a reduction in your energy consumption.
Furthermore, our ALUK BSF70 HI bifold doors are accredited by PAS:24 and Secured by Design, making them a secure and reliable option for your home.
