Project Description


A product of truly innovative and modern design, the aluminium bifold door is quickly becoming a must for homeowners in Britain lucky enough to reside in a contemporary-style home.

Not only do they excel in providing glorious views of your home’s outside along with generous light entry, they also allow for easy transitions when travelling from the inside out, always letting you make the most of space. At AES, we offer aluminium bifold doors in many configurations and systems, giving you the freedom to enjoy an entrance solution that best suits your needs.


All of the bifold door systems we offer are manufactured to the highest quality, each operating effortlessly with each panel sliding neatly behind each other in whichever bifold configuration you feel best suits your home. Low thresholds and clean lines make for a contemporary result that while lightweight makes for a seamless entrance from the inside to outside.

Visofold 6000’s flexibility makes it suitable for both commercial and residential projects where large opening apertures are required, with the system maximising light and space to give unimpeded views. This highly-versatile, easy-to-operate system is the perfect option for even the largest project, capable of opening up an entire wall, yet presenting a contemporary, elegant glazed façade when closed.

With high-security glazing, robust locking mechanisms (including multi-point locks on the main opening sashes, and shoot-bolts on the floating mullions), an unrivalled colour range and the option of colour-matched accessories, the system can be tailored to meet each project’s specific requirements.

Delivering the perfect combination of strength and performance, Visofold 6000 profiles feature a polyamide thermal break that enhances the system’s thermal performance as well as resistance. Fully compliant with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010, the doors have the option of either low thresholds for unimpeded, easy access, or rebated thresholds that offer improved weather resistance.

The system features a choice of internally or externally folding sashes, which when open, sit flush to the frame. Sashes are hung from a floating mullion and slide on a recessed bottom roller and top guide, which allow ultra-slim profiles, smooth operation and robust security.
