Vufold vs Just Doors UK: Main similarities
Vufold and Just Doors UK are leading bifold door manufacturers, and their products have some similarities.
One of these is similar security systems. Both bifolding door brands use a multipoint lock system to provide maximum security. This system bolts the door into the frame and locks at multiple points at the turn of the key.
Another similarity is that both doors can be installed on-site by customers with DIY knowledge. However, Just Doors UK does not provide the comprehensive installation package that Vufold does.
The key differences between Vufold and Just Doors UK
Despite a few similarities, these two bifolding door brands have some major differences that it’s important to be aware of before choosing the supplier for you.
Firstly, is the guarantee. Vufold provides a 10 or 15-year guarantee on all bifold doors. However, Just Doors UK only provides a 10-year guarantee. Long guarantees prove that the company is confident in the quality of the doors supplied and their ability to last well.
Another key difference is the thermal efficiency of the doors. Vufold bifold doors provide U-values as low as 1.0 W/m2K, while the lowest U-value Just Doors UK can offer is 1.8 W/m2K.
The U-value of a surface refers to its ability to transmit heat and is measured in watts per square metre kelvin. Lower numbers mean that less energy is transmitted from the bifold door in any given amount of time.
This means that bifolding doors with low U-values, such as those provided by Vufold, are more efficient and can help to save on energy bills. The thermal efficiency is an important factor to take into consideration when installing large glass doors within your home whether its bifold, sliding or French doors.
Range of materials
The range of materials offered is a key factor setting Vufold and Just Doors UK apart. A Vufold door is available in the following materials:
These options provide a huge amount of choice for a range of styles and tastes. As a customer, it allows you to weigh up the pros and cons of each material and choose the one that is best suited to your home.
On the other hand, Just Doors UK only provides aluminium doors which means less choice for customers.
The size options available from Vufold and Just Doors UK also differ. Vufold offers a wider array of doors in larger sizes, meaning more choice and flexibility for customers. While Just Doors UK’s doors have a cheaper price range, this is because the sizes they offer are smaller.
Vufold is able to provide a short and fast delivery time. Bifold doors can be delivered in three days with free delivery, allowing installation to begin straight away.
On the other hand, Just Doors UK have a longer delivery time of 4-5 weeks due to the pandemic which could lead to delays in the installation of the doors.
In addition, when delivered, Vufold doors are provided with a comprehensive pack which includes easy to follow instructions and the equipment required for installation. This means that anyone with DIY skills can install the doors themselves.
Just Doors UK’s bifold doors can also be installed at home by a competent DIYer but the package is not as comprehensive as Vufold.
A final key difference between the brands is the option of bespoke designs. Vufold can offer bespoke bifold doors to meet customer’s exact requirements.
However, Just Doors UK only offer standard door sizes which means that less choice is available.
When selecting bifold doors, the various suppliers should be researched thoroughly to make sure you select the best option and the best quality doors for your requirements. To find out more about Vufold’s extensive range of durable, stylish and energy-efficient external bifold doors, click here.
