The windows and doors we supply and install are ‘Secure By Design’ (a police security initiative) and feature locking mechanisms and key-lockable handles. The doors have a multi-point locking system which includes hook and shoot bolts for maximum security and conformity to PAS 23/24; an enhanced security design. This security aspect ensures that the locking cylinder is kitemarked and has passed two lock-snapping tests. Our composite doors are also ‘Secure By Design’ and PAS 23/24 compliant.
With qualities high in contemporary style and functionality, bi-fold doors have a transformative effect on how a property looks and feels. With the latest slim aluminium frames and double glazing options, bi-fold doors create a light-filled, seamless transition between the inside of a home and the garden area. Available in a range of sizes, colours and finishes, we find the ideal aluminium bi-fold doors to suit any property. Whether in our hometown of Chessington or neighbouring locations like Epsom, Esher and Leatherhead, our customers benefit from over a century of trade and industry experience.
For property owners considering additions like patio or French doors to open up the rear of their property, bi-fold doors with double glazing provide even more benefits and style without compromising on safety.
Before we talk about installation, however, let’s take a more detailed look at how bi-fold doors work and the benefits they provide for homeowners in Chessington and the neighbouring areas.
Bi-fold door designs consist of floor-to-ceiling, interconnected glass panels held within aluminium frames. Our team fits the vast majority of these designs into the rear of properties across the region. When opened to their full extent, bi-fold doors concertina up against a specified wall, creating a wide open space that links an internal area with the outdoors.
Whether in the smallest size of two panels, or the largest size of six, aluminium bi-fold doors come with a traffic door. This opening provides a convenient traditional access point during periods when the entire feature remains closed.
Traffic doors can be placed at either end of the structure, or in a central position, with the option to open inward or outward. Likewise, the hinges can be placed on the most convenient side to suit the dimensions of any property in Chessington, Molesey, Oxshott, Surbiton or the surrounding areas.
Much like the traffic doors, we also fit the remaining panels in a manner that best suits our customers’ requirements. Whether it’s left, right or centrally, we tailor bi-fold door designs to ensure optimal functionality.
With thermally broken frames housing the latest in double glazing and a choice of multi-point locking systems, aluminium bi-fold doors also eliminate any concerns regarding energy efficiency and security.

Each fitting that we undertake follows a unique process designed to optimise efficiency for our clients. Needless to say, the size of the house at hand has the most impact on a final design. Due to the scope of their structure, bi-fold doors sometimes require supplementary building work to strengthen the structure around them.
Fortunately, the installation of bi-fold doors falls under the classification of ‘permitted development’. This means that the work doesn’t require planning permission. Caveats to this can occur in conservation areas. In cases of doubt, our personnel liaise with local authorities in Chessington, Ashtead, Cobham, Dorking and beyond to ensure swift clarity.
We pride ourselves on honest and open communication, so we discuss any issues relating to design or installation at the earliest possible convenience before agreeing to set budgets and drawing up timescales.
For homeowners looking to develop the rear of their property, we also specialise in conservatories and lantern roofs.
