There's no better bifolding door than Solarlux

All our bifolding doors are the best in quality brands and outstanding products.  Solarlux Ecoline bifolding doors go even better.  Exclusively Made in Germany, the pioneers of the bifolding door and with technical and functional innovations you won’t see on any other folding sliding door on the market.

Simply put, Solarlux bifolding doors are the best on the market.  The appearance, quality, attention to detail and desirability put these doors in a class of their own.  Seeing is believing.

  • 99mm mullion sightline, the slimmest bifold on the market
  • Every component precision made to the highest standards
  • Door heights of up to 3.5m high
  • A truly advanced bifold with style and luxury

Key Features

Incredible design and flawless finish

Precision-engineered and with class-leading performance, functionality and design. Solarlux Ecoline bifolding doors give you a technically and aesthetically superior bifolding door in your home.

Despite it being the slimmest bifold on the market, it also allows the creation of door panels up to 3 m high. Packed with patented design and features, no other bifold is like a Solarlux.  Architects such as the world-renowned Foster and Partners use Solarlux.

 

Solarlux Ecoline bifolding doors

Solarlux Ecoline. A truly different bifolding door

The key features of Solarlux bifolds centre around the design and patented technology.  Fewer hinges while being stronger.  The facility to clean the outside pane of glass from inside, thresholds that clean themselves and multiple options for low thresholds.  Just some of the features you won’t find on other doors.

Even the intermediate door handles feature a discreet ‘stop’ preventing the handle from hitting the paint finish.  Such is the attention to detail behind every Solarlux door and details other systems don’t have.  Even the panel catches are highly engineered where other systems use basic magnets.

Design and Specifications

Impeccable attention to detail

As the inventors of the bifolding door, Solarlux products are now at the top of their game.  The 99mm sightline gives you more glass and light, a more discreet bifold and one that’s also a focal feature. And when fully open, no other door stacks neater to one or both sides.

Top-of-the-line security, impressive U-Values, the sheer quality of the materials used and the feel of the hardware. It’s only by seeing and moving a Solarlux bifold you understand the obsession to the fine details and enhancing your home with a prestigious bifolding door.

Ecoline Solarlux bifolds.

Because Solarlux designs and makes most of the components of their bifold, the end result is the best in manufacturing quality.  Seamless joints, near-silent operation and aesthetics that are both discreet and stand out.  Every door leaving the Solarlux Factory in Germany has the same consistent quality and value.

Extensively cycle tested and developed, Solarlux Ecoline bifolds have a lifespan in excess of thirty years and come fully accredited to the highest performance and quality standards. They’re also customisable such as having tilting panels for ventilation. For where you want sliding doors with the same incredible product features, there’s a Solarlux product here too.

Security and Energy Efficiency

Stylish, luxurious, secure and energy-saving

At the heart of the premium aluminium profiles is the Solarlux-designed ‘Bionic-Turtle’ thermal break.  This ingenious thermal design not only helps create low 1.1Wm2K U-Values, but it also makes the profiles slimmer, the doors, stronger and less visible hardware.

The Solarlux luxury door handles operate the first-class German locking systems, engaging thick metal bolts into the secure surround frame.  The intermediate door panels also operate with top and bottom shoot bolts, fully sealing the doors.  The sealing is that good, doors are tested to winds of 100mph.

At the base of the doors are stainless steel double-layered rollers giving the light and quiet operation while also preventing prising of the door panels. At the same time, this mechanism is also non-wearing and doesn’t require maintenance.

The locks within the doors come certified to RC2 security standards and each bolt locks 24mm into the frame.  Within the locking mechanism is the Solarlux designed gearbox.  Not only does this offer manual high security locking, it even comes with optional lock monitoring and concealed wiring for connection to your alarm system.

Appearance and Customisation

A door this special needs to be personal too

Solarlux bifolding doors come in several different material options.  Highline bifolds, also in aluminium give you even better levels of thermal performance.  Then there are hybrid models with gorgeous natural woods inside and fully protected aluminium on the outside.  There’s also a full timber model if you want it.

Your choice extends to all manner of designs and customisation options.  Two up to ten or more panels, integrated tilting windows, multiple choice for glass and security upgrades make Solarlux bifolding doors personal to you.

Luxurious, colours and designer hardware

The colouring process of every Solarlux bifolding door delivers first-class paint coverage and an outstanding choice of colours.  Expertly painted at the Solarlux factory, these doors come with a flawless paint finish in satin, matt or gloss shades.  There’s also metallic and contemporary anodised options too.

The door hardware comes in the finest quality metals, with a unique sheen and tactile touch.  There’s no better door handle.  And for your glass, there’s toughened safety glass as standard, upgrades to laminated glass, acoustic and sun-control options too.  Or make life easy with self-cleaning glass too.

Why Choose Solarlux

Prestigious Solarlux Ecoline bifolding doors provide more quality, specifications and innovation than any other bifolding door on the market. This top-tier bifolding door brand is the choice of homeowners demanding simply the best bifolding door there is.

Solarlux invented the bifolding door more than thirty years ago. Every significant component within a Solarlux Ecoline is designed and patented by the company and you won’t find any generic hardware. The hinges, rollers, insulation and more, all come designed specifically for the product. You benefit from a bifold looking, and operating like no other and with a brand reputation second to none. Bifolding doors are not all the same.
Just some of the technical innovations include a bifolding door track that’s truly unique. Not only does it keep the dirt away, it prevents tripping too and also comes with a better look and design. Even better, you can remove it for deeper cleaning without the hassle of vacuum cleaner nozzles and brushes.

The obsessive design gives you an overall better-looking door. Most bifolding doors on the market rely on three or four hinges. A Solarlux bifold needs just two with no loss of security or weather protection. The designer panel catches actually hold your doors in place fully open and let them close sequentially. Other door brands have a disclaimer relating to their panel catches.
Even better are the frame covers. Open any other door and look into the frame. You’ll see the fixing screws holding your doors to the structure. These doors come with dedicated frame covers for consistent sightlines and no visible screws.
And for sliding doors, Cero by Solarlux comes with the same impressive design.

From start to finish aluhome have been brilliant. Great communication and informative advice in the initial enquiry,... with excellent product knowledge from the sales team enabled us to choose exactly what we were looking for. Even with inevitable delays with manufacturing we were kept up to date all the time from the friendly team. Attention to detail on survey ensured that our builder knew that he needed an extra level of brick to achieve the seamless flush finish on our sliding doors and the installation team have done a great job. We wouldn’t hesitate in using Tim and his team again and would definitely recommend them. We are more than pleased with the finished look. Thanks aluhome.read more

If you are looking to buy new windows/ doors which I guess you are as you are looking at this review, aluhome is the... place to go. From my first phone call & subsequent e mails with Tim we felt that we were dealing with a very friendly & efficient company. This was indeed the case when we visited the showroom & were greeted with a lovely coffee. We didn’t any feel any pressure to buy but as we loved the product we did order there & then. The fitting team arrived promptly on the arranged day & were very friendly, polite & efficient & what’s more after they left my sitting room was beautifully clean, I thought that maybe I should offer them a cleaning job😀. After a few days we did have a slight problem with the door lock but after a quick word with Tim he sent a couple of guys out the following morning to fix it, you can’t get better service than that. Thanks to you all, we love our new sliding doors.Inboxread more

Tim and the team at aluhome were an absolute pleasure to do business with and our 6.5m sliding doors look amazing. The... level of detail that Tim goes into inspires confidence and proves that you are dealing with a professional. Our Sunflex doors were a significant component in our build and essential to making the whole project a success. Our close friends relied on our recommendation and are also trusting aluhome to provide the wow-factor to their home renovation project. Even after fitting the doors aluhome could still be relied upon to deal with a small, but significant, issue with the glazed units. This shows that aluhome care about their customers' happiness and is why I will continue to recommend them to friends and family.read more

We spent a number of months researching the best products and companies for our complex renovation project. As soon as... we met Tim at the Stamford showroom we were convinced the aluhome team would deliver the product set and installation service we needed for our project. Tim worked closely with us to refine the products we wanted, to ensure our budget could be met and to create a delivery and installation schedule. When it came to installation the team, led by Aaron, were highly professional with an excellent attention to detail. In summary, Tim and his team are passionate and extremely knowledgeable about this industry. They provide truly bespoke solutions, collaborate very effectively with their clients and deliver quality every step of the way.read more

After an awful experience with a previous installer, Tim and the Aluhome team were like a breath of fresh air,... delivered exactly what they promised, doors were a little delayed due to the pandemic, but Tim kept us informed every step of the way, I have no hesitation recommending, the service and quality workmanship was truly outstanding and that’s more than I can say for most of the other companies in this space, who seem intent on giving the industry a bad name, thanks again Tim, our front and back doors look and perform just as you said.read more

A high quality service from start to finish. The show room is excellent and reassuring as this element is lacking with... many companies. Tim's knowledge and advice was brilliant throughout. The customer service and communication provided by the whole team was great. Before confirming my order I was told an installation date 6 weeks later. The bifold door and window were installed exactly when I was told. I know from experience that this rarely happens and this reliability made the build much easier. Tim's surveyor and fitters were all excellent. They were very professional and did a great job. I had a problem with a scratched pane and this was replaced quickly and without question which I was very pleased with. The door and window both look stunning. Exactly the look we wanted and they feel very high quality. We are very happy we went with Aluhome. Thank you guys!read more

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

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.

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
