We love the contemporary styling of glass extensions. However, the British weather can often come between us and our visions of the perfect summer’s day, flinging open our doors and enjoying the summer sun. And that’s why we’ve developed a range of  gorgeous blinds to tackle those temperamental UK temperatures. 

Colour me beautiful

Bifold doors really look their best with an individual blind on each door. And with so many panes to cover, your blinds will become a key design feature, so you should carefully consider the colour and design of your chosen blind. Pleated blinds are a great choice for bifold doors.

The delicate fabrics and textures work well with both contemporary and traditional styling, and they’re available in lots of fabulous shades and patterns for a bold or neutral scheme.

Thermal blinds for temperature control

By fitting a single blind to each of your bifold doors, you have the flexibility to adjust individual blinds to reduce glare, depending on the direction and height of the sun throughout the day.

Our thermal Pleated blinds give you added control over temperature too. With clever honeycomb cells that actively trap the heat, you can ensure your space is comfortable all year round.

Blinds for a Perfect fit

A Perfect Fit frame sits between the glazing and beading of uPVC windows so there is no need for drilling your bifold doors. The finish is incredibly neat and versatile. The blinds have no cords so are ideal if you have small children.

They also become an integrated part of your doors, so there is no need to adjust them when you open and close your bifold doors. Our Roller, Pleated and metal Venetian blinds can all be fitted in a PerfectFit frame.

Blinds for aluminium bifold doors

Aluminium bifold doors are often preferred for their sleek appearance. To make the most of this contemporary look it's important to choose a blind that's in sync with the slim profile of the aluminium frame.

While all blind types will fit aluminium bifold doors, Roller blinds share the same sleek looks and have the added advantage of rolling up really neatly when you want to enjoy the vista through your picture frame doors.
