Solarlux Bifolds in Cambridgeshire

The prestigious name in folding sliding doors, Solarlux bifolds in Cambridgeshire, is supplied and fitted by alühome in a new three-sided garden room extension. The installation is further enhanced with top-of-the-line Schuco aluminium windows to the front and side returns and a new aluminium front door at the front of the property.

Dark grey Solarlux bifolds in Comberton, Cambridgeshire

solarlux bifolds in cambridgeshire detached house extension

A large detached property already is extended with a new tiled roof extension creating further space and patio access. The Solarlux bifolds sit at the front of the new extension, with small flag windows to the side and both side return elevations.

Using the slimline bifold system by Solarlux, these made in Germany high-end bifolds feature some of the slimmest mullion sightlines at just 99mm wide. Every detail in how Solarlux bifolds are designed and made and the user comforts they provide is first class, which is why this brand is regarded as one of the best there is.

For this particular project in Comberton, we’ve provided a four panel set of doors. Three panels fold to the left and the traffic door hinges on the right, when viewed from the outside. The benefit of a traffic door when choosing the right bifolding doors is how this independent leaf gives you the same functionality as a regular door, without having to fold the panels back every time.

Why Solarlux bifolds are some of the best

Solarlux bifolds come with highly insulated aluminium using a purpose-designed thermal break called Bionic Turtle. This thermal break not only creates the excellent energy efficiency of the doors but also acts as a structural component to the overall door integrity. At the same time, it ensures tight sealing of the doors and that they close square and exactly right every time.

Then is the hardware provided with a Solarlux product. The locks, hinges, handles, rollers and guides – every component is designed by Solarlux for the product, where other brands use generic hardware found on all sorts of bifolding doors. Even the panel catches holding the panels in place are over-engineered and designed so that the doors can only close sequentially, making them safer.

Of course, with a modern aluminium bifold, you get highly insulated aluminium profiles, a professionally applied colour finish here in a dark contemporary grey. The doors come glazed with toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill. 

Finally, the contemporary and robust door handles come in premium metals with a satin brushed finish.

Solarlux bifolds for new build or replacement projects

Solarlux bifolding doors are designed to enhance a new extension or create a luxurious new set of patio doors, replacing any dated PVCu, metal or wood door. You benefit from all the design and quality associated with a Made in Germany product, designed for everyday use with long service life. Safe, secure, weather sealed and,a of course, designed to look great in any traditional or modern setting.

These top of the line Solarlux bifolds in Cambridgeshire are just part of our extensive folding or sliding doors collection, carefully chosen for their high performance, excellent product quality, security and style.

At alühome, we work with you creating transformational property projects, new rooms and improving your home. Contact us today, discuss your requirements or why not visit our new aluminium studio in Stamford.

Tim and the team were excellent throughout the process. Aaron,Chis and the team brilliantly installed the bifolds, front door and windows. They had a great eye for detail ensuring everything was done to the highest standard. Nothing was too much trouble and were all focused on producing an... excellent installation of all products. Very professional. They mentioned they would return if any problems or issues. Highly recommended and would definitely use them again in the more

Making an investment and significant alteration to your home can be daunting and quiet confusing.We had considered other suppliers and had become confused but Tim clearly has a wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience that is totally reassuring. We were guided by him to buy the right... products for our home and we are delighted with them and the final result.His no nonsense approach and calm advice in the end made it a simple choice.The process was exactly how he outlined, the building work happened when he said it would happen and finished on time. We found there was a minimum of mess and disruption. His employees who came along to do the fitting are a pleasure to have around. We found them polite and respectful in our home.Aluhome had been recommended to us by someone with very high standards and I in turn can also recommend them and endorse those standards. I would be happy to show anyone in this process my finished projectThankyou Tim and all the team.Tim and Christine Brownread more

From the initial shop visit to check out our options right through to the installation the service and experience was easy and effortless, exactly what you would hope it would be. Tim talked us through the choices based on our plans and the aesthetic we were looking for to help us choose the final... product. This was followed by a site survey with two installers that took onboard every comment and request and couldn't have been more helpful explaining the process through. We were given plenty of notice for the install date to ensure we are ready on our side and then come the actual date it went exactly as planned. The operation of everything was fully explained and demonstrated, the installers confirmed everything before beginning and were incredibly clean and professional. We are absolutely stoked with the finished product and have been spurred onto finishing the extension. Thoroughly recommend and we will no doubt be back for a new front door in the not too distant more

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 more

We are extremely pleased with our new doors and windows provided by Aluhome. Tim and his team worked hard to ensure that everything went smoothly and the job was done efficiently and deadlines were met. The doors, especially, have transformed our home and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.

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 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 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 more

Bi-folds and a new front door installed by aluhome on a bitterly cold December morning. The whole experience was first class, we visited the shop in Stamford and Tim explained the options available - in language that we could understand.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

We had decided to replace our old UPVC french doors with aluminium doors and had already researched different brands. Having decided that Origin was the right product for our house, we approached Aluhome for a quotation. From that point onwards the whole process was quick and efficient. We met Tim... at the showroom in Stamford who gave us excellent advice on options for glazing bars, handles etc.etc.We were happy with the price and delivery was much quicker than we had expected with good communication throughout.Fitters Aaron and Terry were a pleasure to deal with where nothing was too much trouble.
