More Aspect bifold door benefits, at a glance
Why you should be asking for an Aspect bifold door in your home.
The Eurocell Aspect collection of UPVC bifold doors give your home the style it deserves, while providing you with the peace of mind you demand. Whichever design you choose, the range creates an open space up to 6-metres wide that allows air and light to flood into your home and provides a seamless connection between your interior and garden.
Security you can trust
The security of your home is vitally important. Precisely why we have built our doors with enhanced security features, which has earned us the comprehensive PAS 23/24 security certification.
Stainless steel anti-jemmy pins are also an integral part of our door design to prevent them being forced open from the outside by intruders.
A wider choice of colours and finishes
Eurocell Aspect bifold door hardware is bespoke, British-designed and assembled – and available in a wide range of colours and finishes to make it easy for you to create a look that complements your home’s existing design. Whether you want to match your existing décor, or make a bold contrast, our panoramic doors are a stylish way to bring indoor and outdoor living together.

Smooth and easy operation
Each Eurocell bifold UPVC door has a built-in four-rail aluminium roller track so that it glides open or closes smoothly and effortlessly. The unique D-shaped interior handle allows the doors to fold back flatter. So when they’re open they look much neater and won’t distract from the beautiful view of your garden. Plus, the D-handle has an intelligent anti-mishandling feature which stops your floor from being scraped by the shoot bolts, and protects the bolts from damage – the main cause of repairs on folding sliding doors.
Easy to fit too
Not only does the outer frame contain all the door hardware inside the frame, but, as long as you're installing your doors in an existing aperture, there’s no need to cut plaster or make alterations in your home to make sure the doors fit. Which means lots less disruption and mess in your home when they’re installed.
The UK's most accredited door
BBA & Secured By Design
Aspect is the first and only bifold door on the market to gain British Board of Agrément (BBA) approval. What’s more, they are Secured by Design approved, which means they have been passed by the Police for use in secure external door systems.
In addition to the standard threshold, we offer various options if you require a flusher fitting low-threshold. For external doors, we offer three low-threshold options, including a double ramp threshold that allows easy pushchair and disabled access, as set out by the Building Regulations. If you want a low-threshold for an internal bifold door, we can also provide a flush-fitting threshold that allows seamless integration of two room.
Keeps draughts out
Eurocell Aspect UPVC bifold doors are manufactured with a square-edge profile that gives a superior seal along door edges, making them draught and weatherproof. Tested to BS6375-1:2009 (Performance of Windows and Doors), Eurocell bifold doors far exceed the minimum requirements set out for the most extreme weather test. They also meet the British Standard minimum requirements for construction, security, safety, weather-tightness and strength of performance.
Letting fresh, cool air in
These stylish bifold doors really come into their own in summer thanks to openings of up to 6-metres wide that help you bring the outside in. Depending on your chosen configuration, different opening positions allow fresh, cool air to flow into your home on hot days and create the perfect integration between home and garden.
More glass = more light
Unlike traditional French doors, Aspect bifold doors open to reveal an aperture that’s up to 90% clear which lets more air than ever circulate when they’re open on hot days; and maximum natural light to brighten up your space whether they’re open or closed. Because…
Bifold means more glass, less frame
Eurocell Aspect bifold doors have been designed with slimmer, uncluttered sightlines to make them less obtrusive. So you see less of the doors and more of your garden or the interior of your home.
A new design that cleverly hides the door seals means you won’t see any unsightly lines between the doors when they’re closed, further enhancing the streamlined look and feel of your new doors. And to complete their clean, simple lines, we also give you the option of a flush-fitting low threshold below the doors which reduces trip hazard and helps with access for tricky to handle prams or buggies.
Make more of your living area
Aspect bifold doors create a wider opening space than French or inline patio doors, letting you expand your living area whenever you wish. Doors can be manufactured up to an impressive six metres wide, offering a simple yet stunning way to enhance your environment, and when fully retracted they quickly turn your outside area or patio into another useable room.
How bifold doors work
Bifold doors are mounted on tracks with pivots that mean they’re easy to open, close or fold away. They are normally fitted with a ‘traffic door’ to conveniently allow people in and out without opening the full width of the doors.
