Even more reasons to #askforAli

Since our Ali FOLD doors were launched in May last year, they have been flying off the shelves. So much so that we have now opened a new dedicated bifold warehouse to house our aluminium bifolding door profiles. The new 10,000 sq ft facility enables us to stock single and dual colour Ali FOLD profiles (anthracite grey and hipca white) ready for immediate delivery to our customers.

So why are Ali FOLD doors so popular?

It’s all down to the perfect mix of the three most important features for any bifolding door. Aesthetics, performance and ease of fabrication & installation.

Must-have Features

  1. AliFOLD doors are stylishly elegant, with slim sightlines to maximise daylight and give the widest views.
  2. Ali FOLD doors have excellent thermal and acoustic performance with U values as low as 1.19 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN standard
  3. Ali FOLD doors are easy to fabricate, install and adjust

Super Service

But more than that, it’s because of our legendary customer service, superfast delivery times and value for money.
