Bi-fold doors from Ekco can truly transform your home. With showrooms in both Edinburgh and Livingston, Ekco can supply bi-fold doors to homes the length and breadth of Scotland – and the rest of the UK too.
But what makes bifold doors right for your home? In summer, you can make the most of the sunlight and fresh air as they open fully and simply fold away to completely remove all barriers between your outdoor and indoor living space.In winter, when closed, they become a thermally-efficient barrier to the elements keeping you and your family snug and warm inside. Imagine the feeling of sitting in your lounge with a panoramic view of the Edinburgh Pentland hills, or the Ochil hills near Stirling. If you live in the Borders maybe you enjoy the sounds of the River Tweed rushing by outside your door, or the beautiful Hermitage in Perthshire. No matter where in Scotland you live, if you’re looking for new patio doors, you should consider beautiful aluminium bi-fold doors from Ekco. Here’s why.
Open Fully to Remove all Barriers
Now you can relax from the comfort of your sofa and really enjoy an uninterrupted view over your garden and beyond. Ekco bi-folding doors open fully to remove all barriers, let in more light and air and create a feeling of one single space between your garden and indoor living area.
Low Threshold means no Boundaries
Ekco bi-fold doors have a low threshold. This means that there’s no obvious boundary between one room and the other which adds to the illusion of ‘one space.’ It also means that there’s little chance of tripping when moving from your indoor to your outdoor space. This is especially useful if you have young children or perhaps elderly relatives living with you.
British Manufactured Craftsmanship
Our bi-fold doors are manufactured from sustainable materials by Origin, here in Britain to guarantee solid craftsmanship and durability for years to come.
Ekco bi-fold doors may be ideal in the summer, but they’re just as perfect in winter. Thermally efficient with a U-Value rating which surpasses British standards they’re capable of withstanding anything the extreme Scottish Highland weather can throw at them.
8-Point Locking System to Withstand Intruders
Not only are they beautiful to look at, our bi-fold doors are built with security in mind. With anti-lift bars at the top and bottom, deep throw hooks, an 8-point locking system and conforming to police ‘Preferred by Design’ standards, they’re made to withstand even the most ardent intruder. If you live in well populated cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh where petty crime and house break-ins are higher than other areas of Scotland, this should give you real peace of mind.
Safe Gaskets Mean no Trapped Fingers
Safety is a priority with little ones around. Our bi-folds are therefore fitted with safe gaskets to make sure that trapped fingers will become a thing of the past.
Aluminium Powder-Coated Frames
Aluminium is a sustainable material which has successfully replaced wood and PVC. Strong and robust, our frames are powder coated in the colour of your choice and require very little - if any - maintenance during their lifetime.
Over 150 Colours with coordinated seals
Our wide range of 150 colours means that your bi-fold doors can blend or contrast with any colour scheme. You can even choose a different colour on the inside than the outside. Plus, you can choose from 7 different colours for the seals to add a bit of colour coordination.
Industry Leading 20-year Guarantee
Our bi-fold doors are built to last. That’s why they carry an industry leading 20-year guarantee against defects to give you total peace of mind.
