A guide to Schuco Bifolding Doors

Schuco bifolding doors are part of our luxury folding sliding doors range available at Aluhome. The Schuco name is one of the best when it comes to aluminium doors and windows for the home. Designed and engineered in Germany and made in the UK, for more than fifty years, Schuco products deliver quality, reliability, security and functionality. For bifolding doors, we explain why they’re so desirable and what they can bring to your property project.

Why Schuco bifolding doors are some of the best

First of all is how they look. The look of Schuco bifolding doors is not only incredibly attractive but designed to work in both modern and traditional houses, decors and architecture. The appearance of ASS70 FD, in particular, lends itself to new extensions perfectly. As well as this, you can use Schuco as a substantial upgrade over your existing patio doors.

Then comes the feel of these doors as you move them. One of the best indicators of quality is the smoothness of the slide and fold action. German-engineered bifolds slide, fold and feel like no other. Fluid action, yet light with a genuine feeling of quality and that solid feel at the same time. The only way to appreciate just how well a Schuco door moves is to try it. We’ve got on in our showroom and the meticulous movement of these doors is first class.

Even better with Schuco bifolds and especially with the 2021 model are the sizes. Schuco doors already go up to 1.2m wide and up to 3m high giving you a gorgeous looking patio door and filling your room with light.

Importantly when making a substantial investment in your home is the reputation of the product you buy. Schuco doesn’t just make bifolding doors or windows. Their products extend to fire-proof, bomb and blast resistant and even doors and windows for secure units such as maximum security prisons and Government buildings. So while you may not need this level of protection, it’s an excellent demonstration of just how advanced this system is.

Bifolding door panels up to 1.5m wide

Now the latest model with even better design gives you door panels of up to 1.5m wide. What does this mean for you? With most bifolding door openings at around 4 metres wide, most bifolding doors need four panels. The incredible size capability of Schuco now means most standard door opening need just three doors.

Fewer panels means fewer vertical mullions and bigger glass sizes. Furthermore, you get even better views with the doors closed and a look similar to a large patio door rather than a bifold. They look simply stunning.

The sightlines are another great reason to consider Schuco bifolding doors in your home. With 122mm mullions, this is one of the slimmest bifolding doors on the market. And if you want to go even thinner with the same luxury German design and feel, our Solarlux bifolding door is even thinner.

Other amazing features of a Schuco bifold include beautiful contemporary handles on the traffic door and equally impressive handles and door pulls on the additional doors.

Finally, Schuco bifolds give you some of the best security features, internal glazing beads and excellent U-Values depending on the glass you choose in your doors. There’s the standard glass being toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill.  Or you can enhance the thermal performance even more with triple glazing.

For the door threshold, not only do Schuco bifolding doors give you a standard or low threshold. We can recess this achieving a flush floor inside and decking or slabs outside. For wheelchair users there’s a solution here too, equally useful for pushchairs or children’s bikes.

What a fantastic company! I had been searching for a specific configuration of interior and exterior doors and windows... and was struggling to find them. Then, by accident I came across Tim's company. From the moment we started to communicated I knew who I wanted to work with. Tim's techncial advice from choosing the right solutions, through to how to manage the site build requirements was second to none. The professionalism of his surveying and installers teams, didn't let me down in any department. Always professional, courteous, and tidy, while at the same time a pleasure to work with.read more

Exceptional company to purchase from, small enough to care but large enough to supply the sliding doors in a... configuration we couldn't find anywhere else. Frame rebate was one of the smallest we could find with 3 extremely large doors that did not need to be fixed in any specific position when open. We can know look out on our back garden and barely notice the doors. Tim and Anita are both Amazing and so are the guys that fit the Doors. Very happy to recommend!!read more

A completely: professional, knowledgeable, courteous team at Aluhome that we would wholeheartedly recommend.Customer... service from start to finish has been exemplary.We would strongly recommend anyone who is in the market for new bi-folds to visit the showroom. As with other reviewers, it would have saved us an enormous amount of time.We would emphasis the whole team, as from start to finish we have had a seamless experience.Our install was not without it’s technical challenges. Solutions offered up by other suppliers did not match our desires. Tim listened and took the time to understand what we ultimately were looking for. Combined with Aaron, they have provided a superb solution that matches our brief perfectly.Manufacturing timescales were explained and the forecasted install date was achieved as smooth as could be wished for.The install was also seamless. Aaron and the install team were again: professional, polite and took great pride in their work.We are now the proud owners of two sets of high-end, beautiful bi-folds, provided at a competitive price. We have worked with a truly professional company and are thankful we placed our trust in Aluhome as it has been completely repaid.Mike and Debbieread more

Thanks to ‘Aluhome’ for first class (well Informed) advice with regard to the suitability of replacing our existing ... French doors with a Less obtrusive Aluminium framed Sliding Door system.What a difference! - the views into our garden now they are clear of window frame obstructions is delightful. This coupled with more natural light to the interior, is another bonus.The installation was carried out by fitters who clearly knew their trade and with the minimum of inconvenience to us.We are happy to report that the finished job from appearance, practicality and quality, exceeded our expectations.read more

Tim and his amazing team have been a godsend during our extension project. His advice and friendly chats together with... his highly experienced team of surveyors and fitters made the whole experience simple and hassle free. What he doesn’t know about his products isn’t worth knowing and we came away from the showroom feeling knowledgeable and that we’d made a great informed product choice. A big thank you to the whole team, and I promise once the garden's done and the kitchen's in we will update our photos which currently I’m almost embarrassed to upload as they don’t do the bifolds justice at all! We love them, the light is amazing, thanks again Tim & Team!read more

Based on our recent experiences, we are happy to recommend aluhome. During a visit to their office and display room Tim... was able to give a comprehensive description and assessment of all aspects of the door and windows we were thinking of installing (replacing 25 year old wood framed patio doors and windows). The timing of delivery and installation was as predicted. The cost was more competitive than similar offers. The installation team were on time, friendly, competent and efficient. And they left the patio area as clean as it was beforehand. And we are now very pleased with our new patio door&window. Best wishes, Rick and Moread more

We used AluHome to design and fit steel-look replacement french doors and windows at the back of our house in central... Stamford. Tim and the team at AluHome have been outstanding all the way through the process. They took time to understand our requirements and communication has been exceptional throughout. There were no delays, the doors look wonderful and the installation team were prompt, knowledgeable and paid a high level of attention of detail. There is no need to look elsewhere, we strongly recommend Tim and the team.read more

Great experience from start to finish. Tim was extremely helpful in assisting us with the initial enquiry for French... doors and windows that needed a specific “U” grade for building regs. He invited us to the the showroom and gave us a thorough walk through of the products. The quality of the product is second to none. Aaron - in charge of fitting- worked closely with our builder in terms of planning and measuring as well as giving some on site advice and recommendations.The provision and installation was on time with no issues and very professional.The French Doors now form the focal point of our kitchen extension and have really made the project.We highly recommend Tim and Aluhome!read more

We visited Auhome to help choose doors for our new extension. We met Tim who was very helpful and extremely... knowledgeable and offered useful information to help me decide between sliders or bi folds. The showroom has a good choice of doors which again helped with our decision. I am delighted with the Sunflex sliders we chose, they completely make our room, great quality and fitted expertly by the team. Thank you Tim and all at Aluhome in Stamford. I would thoroughly recommend you.read more

A warm welcome at the showroom in Stamford which has a range of products on show. We were shown the options available... to us as we were looking to buy bifold doors. We were advised on what would suit us best and the various options available as regards colour, handle options etc. They were fitted very quickly and although we had a couple of issues they were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Tim. Very pleased with our doors and the service from Tim and his fitters. Would recommend.read more
