Description

Our Ultra grey 4.8m (approx 16ft) bifold doors are unique due to the resilient aluminium cladding on the outside and real fashionable oak on the inside, to match interior flooring and furnishings.

This stunning door set can meet all kinds of requirements, from customers who want a contemporary look, to those who want low maintenance. The external powder-coated aluminium finish carries a 15-year guarantee, whilst the oak inside has been finished with 3 coats of clear polyurethane finish.

The Ultra 6-door, 4.8m grey bi-fold doors are fitted with 44mm triple glazing, and incorporates two panes of special Low E thermal glass that are argon gas filled, giving an incredible thermal efficiency, keeping the heat in and the cold out.

Robust yet beautiful in style and design, these 4.8m bi-fold doors are 72mm thick, with the unique Vufold top-hung sliding folding hardware system for easy fingertip opening and closing. No bottom rollers means no clogging with debris or doors becoming stuck or jammed!

For maximum security, these bifold doors incorporate a 5-point Vectis lock designed to meet the requirements of PAS 24, BS 6375, the GVA requirements of BS 6321 and Secured by Design on the main access door and lockable and non-lockable security slide bolts on the inside.

The Ultra is designed to be installed by any competent builder or joiner, and no specialist aluminium door installation experience is required. As with all Vufold doors, the 4.8m grey Ultra comes complete with doors, frames, hardware, tracks, fixings, locks and handles, plus easy-to-follow instructions.

Additional options and extras:
• Brushed Graphite handle pair
• Blinds
• Magnetic catch kits and door stop.

Stunning casement windows are also available to perfectly match the bifold doors and complete the look on any extension, renovation or new build home.

    well made and fitting perfectly

    The doors were as expected -- well made and fitting perfectly. By comparison with other bottom rail running doors investigated, these top-hung doors are quite superior. We are very satisfied with the price we paid for them.

    Mr. John Ashford

    The build quality is excellent

    An excellent product which we hope will last us many years.
    We have been looking for a door like this for over two years and it ticks all the boxes, including triple glazing and value for money. The build quality is excellent. We have not had any severe weather to test it out yet but it appears draught and weather proof.
    We installed the doors ourselves and the installation procedure was straightforward with all parts supplied (including some necessary tools). Instructions were very good (only a few minor issues which we quickly sorted out). Doors are very heavy and require careful handling. We had to purchase a different lock than supplied to take a euro lock and we purchased extra bolts for increased security.

    Very high quality and secure fittings

    Very high quality and secure fittings, a little more costly than some doors but well worth the extra. Needs a good joiner to fit them though not for the dIY person. Very satisfied with finished result.

    These doors are the best we have ever bought

    The doors look fabulous fitted in our new kitchen extension. The single opening door gives us the back door use we originally had while the 3 or all 5 doors fully open options add another dimension to our new room & opens the indoors into the outdoors. Although the doors are solid they slide open really easily & the locks just glide into place and is easily operated by a single person.
    These doors are the best we have ever bought and we will be replacing our french doors with bifold doors next time.

    Very happy because the doors installed are as good a quality as the website suggests

    Very happy because the doors installed are as good a quality as the website suggests. Doors have a very 'substantial' feel about them which in turn highlights their quality....yet still open and close very smoothly. One minor suggestion would be to upgrade the locking system as the 'old' style key looks out of place with the sleek door system. Also the plastic cover on the holding magnets would look better in chrome to blend in with the rest of the fixtures. However, these are minor comments on what is a very fine product.

    Go ahead and buy these doors, you will not be disappointed in the quality and our builder says they were easy enough to fit! I would recommend these doors to friends and family. Compared with other products and these were the best in terms of materials and value. Solid feel with smooth mechanism.

    The doors look fabulous

    My builder, who is very very fussy, has said that he would recommend Vufold to other clients. He was particularly impressed with the draught excluder in the keyhole, said he was waiting for years for someone to design such a thing. The doors look fabulous and will send photo as soon as build is finished.

    Thank you for making this the easy part for me.

    The doors are everything I expected and more

    The doors are everything I expected and more. The build quality is quite outstanding. I managed to get a 5% discount code while visiting the retailer at the Home and Renovation Show at the NEC.
    The price was extremely competitive for Alu clad bifold door.

    The only gripe was the fitting instructions are in my opinion not as clear as they should be. That being said a competent DIYer can fit them but I would give yourself at least 1 day to complete the job.

    Review of Ultra External Bifold Doors 7ft White Aluminium and Oak

    First of all the quality of the doors is excellent, they look great and all who have seen then, builders and friends, have commented on how fantastic they look. I helped a mate who is a professional glass and window fitter fit the doors. He usually fits aluminium doors these were considerably more complicated to fit. Even with specialist kit such as the suckers with a handle you fit on the glass to help move the doors they were still very heavy and difficult to move into place. The instructions were not entirely accurate, stating the hinges were set up one way when they were the other way etc. and in general were not the easiest to follow and figure out. But our biggest problem was despite drilling pilot holes when required we had three screws break whilst being screwed in, these then had to be drilled out. Maybe we were unlucky with a bad batch, or the quality was not sufficient. Would have had five stars except for the fitting difficulties

    A great set of doors

    A great set of doors, you will need the instructions, and in my opinion 3 people for some of the assembly. That said the doors are fantastic the quality is very high I was worried about purchasing the doors without seeing them except on the Internet, but my expectations were surpassed.

    Ultra External Bifold Doors excellent quality

    These doors are excellent quality and our builders were very impressed with the doors, the way they were packed and the fixings included. The only improvement I would suggest is the locking door handle, which is Chrome whereas the rest of the handles and fixings are brushed Chrome, it would have been good to have a choice.

    Adam Tamer

    Ooze quality and they look amazing

    The good:
    The doors are top quality. Very heavy, very solid. I had some screws missing and the builders made a rudementary mistake in fitting the doors - The vufold team - especially Amanda and David where exceedingly helpful and we managed to resolve everything.

    The doors are top hung so you will need a builder or someone able to put the large bolts into the RSJ. Not a typical DIY job.

    Overall:
    Despite all of this I was very happy with the doors. They ooze quality and they look amazing. The sliding door mechanism is very smooth. The oak cladding is very good looking
    and the triple glazing keeps the room very warm.

    Ultra External Bifold Doors 8ft White Aluminium and Oak

    The builder was able to fit the door but it took a long time for him to complete it fully and for us to then be able to appreciate it. I find closing and locking the door a bit difficult - 20mins is the longest time it has taken me. But my husband says there is a knack to it that I will need to learn. I didn't think I would need to go on a training course on door closing at this stage of my adult life. We look forward to benefiting when the weather is warmer so we can open it up fully .

    This is an excelent product of very high build quality

    This is an excelent product of very high build quality. I would strongly suggest you leave two days to fit it and you will definitely need two people... Very heavy doors. Myself and a builder friend fitted it and by taking time to read the instructions and carefully laying out the components beforehand we have a fantastic result. I Would recommend them to anyone. One minor point though, the instructions state clearly that all hinges and fittings come pre-set for left hand operation (which is what we required), frustratingly we realised this wasn't the case half way through door hanging and had to dismantle / reverse and re-assemble one part.. Double check every part and you will be fine.

    strongly recommend these Ultra doors to others

    Absolutely wonderful. Doors are well packed for delivery and safely arrived. Good quality product. Finding the door handle difficult to lock and operate even after adjustments. We found it very difficult to install as we had a catnic lintel and not an RSJ. We had to put in a boxed steel into the lintel as the doors are top hung. The manual recommends doing all the plastering and wet trades prior to the arrival of the door however not sure how you are then meant to bolt the frame into the RSJ if they are not exposed. My builder would have liked to see the hinges not so close to the edge of the door. Other than that they are in and look wonderful. I would strongly recommend these doors to others.

    Very high quality doors Ultra External Bifold Doors

    Very high quality doors. My builder fitted the doors and complained that they were much harder to fit than the usual bifolds he fits. As they are top hung, he had to drill holes to pass the bolts into the support beam. It took my builders around 4 days to fit two doors.

    Cannot imagine our kitchen without these beautiful doors

    we installed these at our home in Hemel hempstead. I was a bit sceptical as they couldn't provide a reference installation somewhere I could see or a sample.

    The delivery was spot on, the product can only be described as great and we simply cannot imagine our kitchen without these beautiful doors.

    I do not know how long lasting they will prove to be but only time will tell.

    The quality of the product is very good

    The quality of the product is very good, however whilst we had little difficulty installing the doors (we have a 5 and a 6 door unit), because we made frames of the correct dimensions to get the openings correct, setting up the 5 door version is still not right and because of pressures of the build we are leaving it for the moment and not using the door but will come back to adjust it later. Some of the instructions are not that useful, leaving the installation until all wet services are completed was not practical, especially since the doors are fixed to an RSJ which in our case has subsequently been covered and rendered. Overall satisfied with the doors and will be even happier once we have the five door one working smoothly.

    Impressive Specification

    The specification of these doors is impressive but quality control and packaging could definitely be improved.

    Glass defects ought to be picked up in the factory before the protective film is applied and I fail to understand why the thin cardboard packaging only extends half way across the stiles and rails. This means the glazing beads around the glazing are vulnerable during storage and transit. Two doors rejected due to these problems.

    We are delighted with the quality and finish of these doors. They were installed recently after a very long period of storage in our garage; they have brought the wow factor to our new extension and a Mediterranean feel as the house and garden now blends into one. The installers (2) were a bit perplexed at first as they were accustomed to pre-assembled trifolds but found them straightforward in the end. They took a good half day to complete and said they were impressed by the simplicity of the adjustment mechanisms which they were confident could be used by any owner with a screwdriver. The doors were delivered on time and the sales process was efficient, I wish I could say the same for other things we have purchased. On the whole, we

    Everything was delivered on time and together with no missing parts. A little more complicated in fully assembling the units and not a job for one person as a 9ft sub frame needs lifting square and also each door is really solidily built. The finished article though is well worth the effort.

    In all took about 5hrs to fit 12ft set

    The doors were easier to install than I thought and managed to do most of it single handed with just a little help from my wife with holding the doors steady. The only difficulty I had was getting the pivot unit in the top head rail, would have been easier to put this in before fixing the head to the jamb. All pieces clearly set out in the packaging. In all took about 5hrs to fit 12ft set and would have been quicker if had help all the time.

THEY PRAISED THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT AND SAID HOW GREAT THEY LOOKED. UNFORTUNATELY THEY HAVE WORN AWAY THE GREY PAINT ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME BUT IT'S QUITE MINOR.

    We're very happy with these doors.

    We're very happy with these doors. They look lovely and make a huge difference to our kitchen. We had a wall knocked out and these doors put in dramatically changing the light and feeling of space in the room. It feels like the garden is part of the kitchen and vice-versa now. They function well - easy to slide, no drafts at all, secure and solid when closed. I'm glad we got the one with the metal cladding - it's a nice clean modern look and means there will be very little if any maintenance. The builder said that they were very straight forward to fit. So we're very happy and would recommend the doors.

    Service we have had has been exceptional

    I would like to thank you as a business, and in particular Amanda who has provided us with exceptional service.
    We have just undergone a complete rebuild of a Welsh longhouse, have two sets of your bi folding doors. I never shop on the internet, always like to see the colour of someones eyes. In this instance I can happily say I am wrong, as the product you have is excellent, but the service we have had has been exceptional. Mostly dealing with Amanda, but other people there as well, and if we could employ staff of this calibre we would count ourselves extremely lucky. Please pass on our thanks, and I am sure that their great service is recognised by yourselves.

    This is the 3rd door we have had from Vufold and yet again we are very impressed by the door, The Ultra is easy to install and looks stunning in the extension against the oak skirting etc. The external colour fits well with the oak windows and doesn't look wrong. Would highly recommend these doors and being a builder we now recommend these to our clients too.

    We are so pleased with this product

    We are so pleased with this product. We had bought another sliding door (not from your company); waited 5 weeks for it to find it it was made from an inferior wood, finish was appalling and it was damaged. We found your company on website, paid for 2 day delivery and received a far superior door which was not much dearer than the original we had purchased.

    This is our second purchase from vufold.

    This is our second purchase from vufold. The service is excellent from initial booking through to delivery and the staff are great. My husband and I have successfully installed both sets of doors (1 day per installation) using the instructions provided by Vufold. We are exceptionally pleased with our doors as they are robust, look fantastic and have an exceptional u value which has vastly improved the comfort to these rooms. I'm even more thrilled to know that I can now purchase blinds for these doors too.

    They are quite obviously great quality

    Well, after some initial issues with the installation and the instructions (I still do have some reservations about the order of doing things on the instructions!) the doors are fitted and are beautiful. They are quite obviously great quality and I am hoping they will stand the test of time. They have been fitted for a few weeks now and our place is still a work in progress but everyone is very impressed with the look and the way they work. Doors like these need to be well engineered and good quality, these are. But be warned, they will need a steel beam to fix to above and (hint) its a good idea to slide the door mounts to the frame track before you fit the frame together, even though the instructions state they can be fitted afterwards. But, get over that, they are superb doors!

    Superb in looks and performance

    Superb in looks and performance, brillliant at keeping the heat out in the summer(something we hadn't really thought about). Feel so smooth when opening and closing, really worth the money.

    Great

    The look and finish they provide are excellent

    We are really pleased with our ultra door set. The look and finish they provide are excellent and the American oak on the inside is lovely. According to our builder the doors were installed with no issues and they are nice and easy to open / close. Our only one minor issue is that we have found that when unlocking the doors the lock cover tends to spin around and lodge itself against the door opposite and then when you go to open the door the lock cover has bent and scraped the door opposite.
    Other than that issue the doors have been great and the service we have received has also been excellent.

    Regards

    Heavy, solid, good mechanism

    Difficult to fit according to builders but now they know how to do it they are keen to use more! Heavy, solid, good mechanism is what they have told me.

    thermally better than the surrounding walls in my Victorian house

    Only limited use so far due to cold weather but these look the part and are reassuringly heavy! The grey alu coating outside has taken some grief from the builders but remains unmarked or scratched. Sound deadening is good and thermally better than the surrounding walls in my Victorian house. Look forward to many happy years of use showing these off to my visitors.

    The whole experience in buying from Vufold has been great.

    We love our bifold door. The whole experience in buying from Vufold has been great. Our initial enquiry was dealt with effectively and from order placed we were soon in receipt of the door. We had other building works going on at our house and it took two experienced joiners a day to fit, all very straight forward. The only minor point is the door handle on the opening leaf which is polished chrome, the other door fittings and fittings we are using elsewhere in the house are satin chrome. A satin door handle would have been a good option for us. A small issue! We are so delighted we now want to change an existing French door for a 7' ultra bifold and are eagerly waiting for stock to be replenished. There can't be a better recommendation than a repeat order!

    I was very pleased with the doors

    I was very pleased with the doors. I have to be honest, it was difficult to find someone who wanted to fit them, so I installed them with a competent friend. The builder made the building hole and we fitted the doors.

    The instructions are OK. My advice if you are doing this yourself is to make the effort to see the product first so when everything arrives you can understand it all.

    In terms of the fitting it took a day and a half,mainly to get the frame fitted perfectly. There is a small amount of tolerance with the product, but not having fitted it before we didn't know what to expect so didn't take any chances.

    It says no drilling,there is drilling to do,mainly to put the frame on the building. My recommendation, take your time,plan plan plan... Also useful to have some woodworking tools to countersink the screws in the frame if you want perfect finish.

    It is tempting to get the packaging out but dont, and follow the instructions.

    The wood also scratches so after a few scratches on the frame we used some old carpet to lay down to protect the doorswhen marking or putting door two and three together.

    At the end,really pleased,so is my wife.... always a good sign,so was the builder,so happy days.....Antony

    I love my doors

    We are very pleased with our vufold doors we have the 12 ft oak interior and white Ali exterior. We saw them at the grand designs show in 2012 and loved them. However both our builder and architect were dubious about us ordering them as the 'self assembly' part had them running for the hills and neither were keen to take them on board. Vufold provided us with their own chaps contact details and as he lived close by we arranged a fee and he fitted them for us. They look fantastic and our architect is now recommending them to his clients and our builder having seen the quality of the product would be more than happy to assemble them in future. I think however that vufold would probably sell more doors if they offered a fitting service as an option as it does put some people off!!!! I love my doors and am so glad we went with our gut instincts - there is nothing else of this spec and price on the market and we have the best of both worlds with beautiful warm oak interior and maintenence free white aluminium exterior to match our white render. Thank you vufold.

    Really good

    Door is really good. One bag of screws were missing and would have expected plugs to blank off the side screw fixings. Will send photo when project is complete. Door is still covered with protective material.

    Reply from Vufold: Thank you for your kind comments. We are sorry to hear of the missing screw pack. If you have not already done so please contact our customer service department and they will arrange for replacement screws to be posted out to you. You would normally fit the majority of the frame fixing screws behind the blank and lock keeps in the frame jambs however you can use oak plugs or plastic plugs to cover them. We look forward to receiving your pictures.

    really pleased with the look

    We are really pleased with the look, quality and fit of the door.
    Buying 2 8ft Ultra Bi-Fold doors was a big purchase to make on-line. But your web site was clear and the members of the team I spoke to were very helpful.
    Our builders and others who have seen them are also very impressed.
    Thank you Vu-Fold.

    Quality kit

    The only gripe (& it is a small one) was with the install instructions which were just a little confusing in two places. However with a bit of thought our builders who had never seen these doors before soon had them in stalled & commented on what quality kit they are. Ordering, progressing & delivery could not have been easier & having them fully open for the first time this weekend, although the new kitchen area they have been added too is not yet complete, was a real delight. I would highly recommend both Vufold & these doors to any one. Especially as we were looking for a metal finish to resist the weather externally but really wanted wood internally to suit our intended final fit out.
