The Vufold Status range of aluminium bi-fold doors are high performing yet affordable with no compromise on quality or efficiency. Boasting some of the narrowest sightlines on the market, with a glass to glass sightline of only 123mm, giving you a larger glass area, this black, Double or triple glazed, 4.8M, 5 door aluminium bi-fold door set is sleek and contemporary in looks.

The Status range has a polyamide thermal break between the aluminium sections to give an impressive thermal efficiency of 1.7 W/m2K for double glazing and 1.3 W/m2K for triple glazing. The remarkable high-tech roller design ensures years of effortless opening and closing, keeping your home secure and weatherproof throughout the year. The Status is independently weather tested to the highest UK standard to make sure the cold stays out and the heat stays in.

For maximum security the black aluminium 4.8M Status has a multi-point locking system including top and bottom hook locks, that passes the rigorous PAS 24 certification. And for added security, there are also extra twin point security bolts operated by an internal key locking handle.

    Really easy to put together

    Probably one of the best set of biofolds I have ever fitted. Really easy to put together and once they were in, they opened one closed with ease.

    We couldn't be more delighted

    The new bifold doors have completely transformed a previously gloomy and under-used back room, turning it into the most-used space in the house. The quality of product and the service from the Vufold team have both been exceptional. We couldn't be more delighted

    We are delighted

    We are very happy with the bifold doors - they have done exactly what we hoped in turning a previously somewhat gloomy back room into the most used room in the house with fantastic views of/access to the garden.
    We also bought a window from the Status range to ensure that we have a uniform look within the new room. While we are more than happy with the window as a product in its own right, it is a bit of a disappointment that the handle only comes in brushed aluminium, and therefore doesn't match the door furniture on the bifold door; this slightly detracts from the overall look of the room - its a shame that there wasn't an option to order the window with handles to match. This is our only criticism - otherwise, we are delighted.

    Excellent quality and appear to be very well made

    Excellent quality and appear to be very well made. Our contractor was surprised that it arrived as a diy self-assembly, however he found the instructions very good and easy to follow. Also the shipment was complete with no shortages.

    They look great, and what a good price!

    They look great, and what a good price! They were fitted by a local window company, the chap was impressed that they had not been shifted out of true in transit. They were easy and quick to fit and good quality. Our builder was also impressed by the quality of the running gear, and how easily they slide - he has recommended them to another customer of his.

    We really like that they can be used as a single door without having to slide them too.
