20 Year Guarantee – Because We Can

When Origin’s bi-fold doors are designed, outstanding care is taken to ensure robustness and long-term performance is met. Only exceptionally high quality parts are utilized in an Origin Bi-fold.

Each member of a uniquely skilled team takes pride in manufacturing the best bi-fold doors money can buy. Our bi-fold doors are guaranteed to perform absolutely faultlessly for no less than 2 decades. Each and every bespoke bi-fold door comes with a unique serial number attached to the frame that guarantees the product at the property for 20 Years.


Thermally Efficient

No Need to Compromise

A common concern when swapping brick and mortar for beautiful uninterrupted glass panels is the loss of heat. We understand this conception, and can assure you that in the days of rising bills, no compromise will need to be made on our behalf.

Thermally broken aluminium with the innovative material polyamide means that there is not one point in our frames where aluminium on the inside conducts to aluminium on the outside. We reinforce this principle by only ever installing ‘A’ rated glazing units, using warm edge spacer bar technology inside our double and triple glazed units, with Argon or Krypton gas filling.

And when it starts to get a little chilly in the deepest of winters, be sure that your Certified 1.3* U Value bifolding doors will keep your toes toasty, surpassing the British Building Regulation requirements by a remarkable margin.

The fastest manufacture of bespoke bi-fold doors

With “Your Lead Time Not Ours” on bi-fold doors, and a 1 week lead time on our Windows, it’s a wonder how it takes everyone else so long to make theirs.

Not a jot of quality is undermined, just pure innovation and a hint of genius makes Instadoor able to supply the Origin bi-fold door for when you need them – from 2 days to 3 weeks. You should be in charge of your own deadlines, and thanks to major investment in Origin’s factory workshop we can now provide Origin bi-fold doors practically on demand.


High Security

Enhancing Bi-directional Locking technology enables our windows to boast a high security standard, easing worries and letting you sleep easy.

Along with a hinge system that is inaccessible from the outside, our aluminium bi-fold system lives up to highly regarded security tests – standards highly sought after by many bi-fold systems on the market.

As a further measure, being secure against intrusion through the glass unit is a question that is often asked. A minority of entries made into homes are by the breaking of the double glazed units as it is often quite difficult, and results in a extremely loud sound. For those concerned, or have more reason to protect, laminating the sealed unit can be an extremely effective way of stopping intrusion. For those instances of high security, we can supply security standards as high as bullet proofing.


Safety First

In the days of safety concerns and building regulations, the smaller things that can also put you and your children in harm’s way often go unnoticed; but we take them very seriously.

The Origin bi-fold door has a unique safety system, featuring finger safe gaskets designed to prevent trapping. When our bi-fold doors close with your little one’s fingers in the way, you can rest assured that our bi-fold doors won’t create tears, but a sigh of relief.

The top and bottom trolleys that glide very fast as our bi-fold doors open and close are completely enclosed, while many other bi-fold systems run openly. This threshold design is included regardless of the configuration: Weathered or Flush, meaning that there really are no moving parts that can hurt anyone. Not only does this mean that we excel in safety, it also offers complete accessibility for wheelchair users with our flush track systems.

Low Threshold

A magnificent aspect of installing bi-fold doors is the transformation created in a home, merging the indoor with outdoor by introducing great expanses of space.

The low threshold design that our bi-fold doors can offer allows for a flush finish from inside to outside the home, removing the barrier completely. Such a stunning yet unnoticeable by design system deserves a little attention here, as you would never notice it was ever there when you enjoy your own.

Our Popular finishes

Woodgrain Finishes

With our windows and bi-fold doors you also have the option to go natural, with these fantastic powder coating options. These woodgrain finishes harmonise with your existing wood or wood-effect windows and doors. The finish (available in Natural Oak, Golden Oak, Mahogany and Walnut) has the look, texture and beauty of real timber but without the hassle.

Why Aluminium with Woodgrain finish? Real timber products are beautiful, but realistically are not the best product to use when so many moving parts are involved. Timber has the tendency to swell, twist and distort – characteristics that will cause a lifetime of problems for your bi-fold doors. They will also need treating and maintenance over the years to maintain them. So why not take the best of both worlds? Aluminium properties, and woodgrain looks…
