FEATURES & BENEFITS

20 year guarantee icon

Up to a 20 year guarantee

We offer a guarantee based on where your doors are installed. We’re so confident in our doors that we offer our industry-leading 20-year guarantee with every installation.

Glide system icon

Smooth free glide system

Doors that glide effortlessly. The secret behind the smooth, fluid motion of the Origin Bi-Fold Door is hidden within its bottom track. A cleverly engineered slimline carriage guides the doors along the track quietly and efficiently, letting you open and close them with ease. It’s quality you can see, feel and admire.

Finger safe gasket icon

Finger safe gasket technology

Special finger-safe gaskets stop little fingers from getting trapped when the doors are in use, while magnetic catches hold the doors firmly in place once you’ve folded them back.

And with a threshold carefully designed to remove trip hazards and provide any necessary wheelchair access, you’re able to link seamlessly between the inside and outside of your home.

Low threshold icon

No boundaries low threshold

Low thresholds to connect your home and garden. Creating that truly seamless link between home and garden is all in the threshold. We recommend a weathered threshold, which can be sunk into the floor with a small 1 cm lip to provide a protective weather tight seal.

Non-weathered thresholds have no lip and are completely flush with the floor. As they don’t offer quite the same protection against the elements, they are best used on interior doors or doors in sheltered areas.

Thermal performance icon

Thermally efficient

Stay warm in winter, cool in summer. Engineered to stand up to the unstable British climate, the Origin Bi-Fold Door insulates your home all year round, keeping your home bright with natural light, as well as warm in the winter.

Ultra slim ali icon

Ultra slim lightweight aluminium frames

Aluminium style and strength, the aluminium that goes into making the Origin Bi-Fold Door is premium-grade, coming from prime billets rather than re-melting scrap. It’s a hugely versatile metal that lets us build all kinds of complex door configurations without compromising on lightness, quality or resilience.

Aluminium’s innate strength means the doors are secure, energy‑efficient and resistant to warping or flexing, even in the worst of weather conditions. We finish the frames with a high-grade powder coating, ensuring a scratch-resistant and completely smooth surface. And slim sightlines make sure you have the best possible view of the world outside.

Weather tight seals icon

Advanced weather tight seals

The door’s sophisticated weathertight seals ensure any bad weather remains permanently outside, helping to lower your energy bills and allowing you to enjoy every room of your home no matter the season.

Colour option icon

Colour co-ordinated seals

You might be perfectly satisfied with a contemporary black, white or grey door. Alternatively, your taste might be much more adventurous. With the Origin Bi-Fold Door, you have the choice of over 150 RAL shades, and a range of dual-colour options and woodgrain finishes.

The slave and D-handle – both of which have been specifically designed by Origin to withstand a pull of
1600 Newtons – are available in any one of the 150 RAL shades or a stainless steel finish, so they can be
matched or contrasted to the door itself.

Durable powder coating icon

Durable powder coating

Where wooden or uPVC doors might expand and contract in certain weather, the Origin Bi-Fold Door, with its premium-grade aluminium frames, avoids this problem completely. And its impeccable powder-coated finish means there’s no need to touch up fading paintwork or conceal chips and scratches.

Thermal Efficiency
