Key Product Features
KJM installs the Korniche bifold doors plus the Smart aluminium Visofold 1000 and 6000 sliding folding door systems. Often called bi-folds or bi-folding doors. Bifold (Bi-folding) doors are an ideal room divider between your house and conservatory and if you really want to open up your living areas to the outside world, bifold doors offer a light and spacious option.
We have a three pane Visofold 1000 bifold door and a five pane Korniche bifolding door installed in our showroom in Andover, Hampshire, so why not pay a visit to view them. We install bi-folds across Dorset, Berkshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and southern England.
Energy Efficient Bifold Doors
Filling the gap between the panes increases the thermal performance of insulating glazing units to reduce the conductance of the air space between the layers. Originally, the space was filled with air or flushed with dry nitrogen just prior to sealing.
In a sealed glass insulating unit, air currents between the two panes of glazing carry heat to the top of the unit and settle into cold pools at the bottom. Filling the space with a less conductive, slow-moving gas minimises the convection currents within the space, conduction through the gas is reduced, and the overall transfer of heat between the inside and outside decreases.LEARN MORE
High Performance Glass
High-performance Low-e (low emissivity) glass is designed to reduce heat loss and must be used on energy rated windows. There are two types of Low-e glass; hard coat and soft coat. We use soft coat glass as it gives better light transmission and better thermal performance over hard coat.
Alternatively, by reducing the amount if iron in the external pane of glass, the solar gains of the doors are improved. We install bifolds containing high performance glass across Hampshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and southern England. Get in touch today.VIEW OUR OPTIONS

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are spacer bars installed on aluminium bifold doors?
Space bars are installed into our aluminium bifold doors to provide separation between panes of glass by creating a cavity. Otherwise known as warm edge spacers, they are designed to enable thermal insulation and keep cold air out of a property.
Can aluminium bifold doors be used on conservatories?
Yes! The combination of the door and windows would provide maximum light to the conservatory, particularly during summer in the Andover and Hampshire areas. Alternatively, the door can be installed between the house and the conservatory for increased room privacy and division.
What is Low-E glass?
Low-E glass can be used to upgrade the thermal efficiency of our aluminium bifold doors. Available in hard or soft coats, this glass type can provide better light transmission, better U-values and enhanced clarity out of the door.
Is an aluminium bifold door better than a uPVC bifold door?
Aluminium bifold doors are often more robust and versatile sizing options than uPVC. Using an environmentally friendly material and being built to last, these aluminium bifolding doors provide decades of lifespan rather than the years of uPVC. Aluminium, although more expensive than uPVC, is made to be durable and won’t warp or twist over time.
What U-values can aluminium bifold doors offer?
Our aluminium bifold doors are built to be thermally efficient. With options to upgrade glazing thickness, our doors include polyamide thermal breaks for improved U-values. Based on standard design, our doors reach U-values of 1.5 W/m2K, however, this can be improved with additions and upgrades.
Where can I get a quote for aluminium bifold doors?
