Working with Design and Build Architects

At SunSeeker Doors, we have often worked with architects and builders to install bifolding doors in new or extended homes but since the launch of of our fairly unique Frameless double-glazed doors, there has been a greater interest from the design and build sector.

In the UK, if clients want to make the most of a spectacular view from their homes, the considerations are:
  • best uninterrupted view,
  • best view through the glass,
  • building regulations compliance.
The best uninterrupted view is to have nothing between yourself and the view, not even glass. This can be achieved by installing retractable doors and opening them fully, such as slimline bifolding doors, glass curtains or double-glazed frameless glass doors. SunSeeker Doors manufactures and installs all these types of doors.

The best view through the glass can be achieved with fixed frameless glass panels, sliding frameless glass patio doors or retractable glass curtains made from single-glazed tempered glass but none of these would meet building regulations approval if installed between the main house and the outside. Double-glazing is necessary to reduce heat loss from homes, therefore a narrow opaque edge is unavoidable around each glass panel. With this in mind, the best available options for the best view through glass doors are double-glazed frameless glass doors or sliding patio doors.

Traditional sliding patio doors that run left and right along tracks do not retract to improve the view or access area. Sunseeker Doors' frameless glass doors have been developed to slide then pivot ninety degrees to stack neatly at the side of the opening for maximum access, light source and viewing aperture.

Design-and-Build Frameless Glass Doors Installation

SunSeeker Doors has experienced teams to perform a site survey and who can install our doors - frameless or bifolds - with minimum fuss in minimum time, leaving a tidy site within a few hours.

Architects benefit from fast but professional service, customers are pleased to be free of workmen and their debris and have working doors the same day.

We have the flexibility to work with architects, developers and building professionals to meet deadlines and other requirements. Read more about us on our web site, email or call 01582 492 730 to discuss including our quality, innovative doors in your plans.

Double-glazed Frameless Doors - as much space as you can handle!

Earlier this week, a customer told us that they had never heard of FRAMELESS bi folding patio doors until they accidentally discovered them on our website.

That's the problem with being ahead of the game - spreading the word takes time and/or money and, as SunSeeker Doors is not a large corporation, getting the message across is a slow but rewarding task.

Frameless Glass Doors look similar to bifolds but don't actually fold. The doors hug each other tightly until they are required to part. The main door opens so that the other doors may be spread across the opening or fully retracted for maximum access between the two areas.

Our double-glazed frameless doors exceed UK building regulations for use between the inside and outside of your home.

A single glazed version is available if you just need a classy plain glass room divider - it's so understated that people sometimes assume it's a glass wall and don't realise that it's fully openable.

Treat yourself and wow your friends...
Our website has full details of Frameless Glass Doors, including photographs of some installations, or you can call us with your questions on 01582 492730.

An Ordinary Door Amongst Extraordinary Doors

It occurred to us recently that, due to our over-enthusiasm, we effuse about how our bi folding doors and our frameless glass doors open and close during the better weather yet we forget to mention that, for everyday usage, they are all equipped with a traditionally opening door.

To clarify, both styles of door expanse include a traditionally hinged or pivoting main door. This can be locked and unlocked with a key, opened and closed with a handle. You can walk between rooms or into the garden as if it was just an ordinary door - which it is.

The other (extraordinary) doors are its accomplices.

  • On bifolds, the other doors are linked with hinges that allow them to be opened in a concertina / accordian style.
  • Frameless doors have no hinges but snuggle together until separated by first opening the (almost) ordinary door then moving the nearest extraordinary door, by sliding it across the gap. When it reaches the furthest point along the guides, it can swivel to rest next to the first door. The process is repeated for each door, as required, or any of the doors can remain in a closed position anywhere along the guide rails.

For visual enlightenment, please see our photograph galleries for bi folding doors, double glazed frameless doors and frameless glass doors for enclosures and room dividers.

Now that Bi Folding Doors are so popular, there's nothing new to say ... or is there?

republished from

It is easy to find information about Bi-Folding doors on the Internet: how they work, who supplies them, which frame type is best, and so on. There is very little information about the Frameless glass door that has recently evolved and poised to become the next hot home improvement 'must have'.
The frameless glass patio doors system is based on the 'glass curtains' (single glazed doors) method of using separate panels that slide and pivot to stack at right-angles to open, then slide back to their original positions, butting tightly together, to close.
When closed, the view through the glass doors is maximised as there are no side frames between the glass. When fully open, the doors are stored to the side of the opening, similar to stacking bifolds, for maximum access ans well as uninterrupted views.
These single glazed frameless doors are the ultimate is room dividers but for patio doors, frameless double-glazed doors are necessary to meet building regulations.
Frameless double-glazed doors do not provide such a purely uninterrupted view as can be achieved with single glazing. This is because the thermally compliant double glazed unit has to be sealed with a gasket that is approximately 20mm wide. Insulated glass or double glazing has insulation and acoustic properties attributable to the a vacuum or special gas in the cavity between the inner and outer glass panels. A gasket needs to be reliably airtight to retain the gas or vacuum and to prevent humidity and condensation.
There is no frame at each side of the frameless glass doors but the gasket is opaque and forms a frame-like interruption to views through a set of double-glazed door panels, though minimal, especially when compared with bifolding doors.
If you long to have a view through a wide expanse of uninterrupted glass doors, there are places where you can install frameless single glazed doors. For example, conservatory doors, balcony enclosures, outbuildings and commercial premises, as well as room partitions.
Commercial premises do not have to comply with the same insulation standards as domestic dwellings therefore the single glazed frameless doors can stretch across the front of house, in place of a plate glass window, for instance. Restaurants and cafés have embraced the frameless glass door system because it enables them to seemlessly extend their services beyond the front door.
Frameless glass doors, like bifolds, can easily provide access in excess of seven metres.
Information regarding single-glazed or double-glazed frameless doors or aluminium-framed bifolding doors can be read on SunSeeker Doors web site. This UK manufacturer will provide a competitive quotation for both bi folding doors and frameless glass doors, including installation and full product and workmanship guarantee.

PVC, Timber, Aluminum Frames Or Frameless Patio Doors?

Since the turn of the century, the bi folding door has become increasingly popular with home-owners modernising their houses and flats. It is also the standard for many enclosed swimming pools.

Bi-folding doors are generally offered with three frame types: Timber, Aluminium and PVC. All are available in different qualities and therefore the prices vary. When comparing the cheapest PVC or wood-framed door sets from a D.I.Y. store with made to measure bi folding doors from a specialist manufacturer, remember that the built-to-order price generally includes installation by experienced bi folding door fitters.

Other points to consider may include the origin of your custom built doors:
  • Are they made locally or imported? There could be unforeseen delays if the measurements are inaccurate.
  • Does the company use an experienced team or cheap, untrained labour for installation?
  • Is the Company established with a good reputation, in case something goes wrong?
Good quality wooden frames look good in traditional homes. Hard woods, such as teak and oak are more expensive than soft woods but are also more resiliant. Timber frames are more prone to weather conditions - sun and rain can take their toll - swelling, shrinking or warping the frames, making the doors difficult to open or close and facilitating draughts. Stained or painted, wooden frames are high maintenance compared with aluminium or pvc.

Often available in wood-grain finish as well as white, PVC door frames vary from cheap and nasty that will probably be a nightmare to open and close, to metal-reinforced, high quality systems. The better PVC bifolds have many of the qualities of aluminium bifolds, such as low maintenance and good performance - but the frames are always wider, detracting from the potential view when doors are closed, and the profiles are also wider, reducing the access space when open.

The term thermally-broken aluminium basically means that the aluminium exposed to the temperatures on the outside of the frame and the aluminium on the inside of the frame are separated by a non-conductive material so that heat or cold doesn't pass through. Aluminium itself can be quite ugly therefore the aluminium frames are powder-coated in a polymer that provides a smooth, warm finish. Colours can be added to the coating to produce a virtually maintenance-free frame (it will need a wipe now and then) in white, graphite, silver, green, brown, blue or up to almost 200 colour choices - including purple, orange, red or pink. Barbie and Jordan would love that!

For character homes, frameless glass doors are the stunning alternative to the traditional. For contemporary homes, there really is no alternative - this is it! The ultimate Lifestyle choice. Instead of having to consider the safety of natural wood versus repercussions of fashion fopars with copper, graphite or plum finishes, choose frameless. No frames.

Evolving from bifolds, an absence of side frames meant having to develop a method without hinges. This is achieved by having a main door that pivots open at right-angles just like a regular door, enabling each of the remaining doors to slide across the gap left by the open door and also pivoting at right-angles, to rest against the previous door. In this way, maximum access is achieved when all the doors are fully open.

And when the doors are fully closed, there are no frames to disturb the view. It should be noted, however, that because patio doors are double glazed, there is a small interruption between closed doors where the gasket seals the vacuum between the outer and inner glass panes.

How Do Frameless Glass Doors open?

From fully closed position to fully open:
  • Unlock side compression Schlegel locking system
  • Pivot access door to swing open
  • Slide the next glass panel into the position vacated by the open door
  • Pivot open as previously performed
  • Stack against previous door
  • Repeat the same task for each of the glass panels
The system is now fully open.

Of course, there is a middle option, as shown in the picture!

Customer installation, Frameless Glass Doors in Weaverham

A recent customer was so pleased our new product - frameless glass doors, installed between his house and new orangery - that he sent us a series of photographs, which we have added to the gallery on our web site.

SunSeeker Frameless Glass Doors are available as single or double glazed.

Tempered glass single glazed doors can be used internally or on conservatories where doors do not have to meet building regulations' insulation standards.

Where thermally compliant double-glazing is mandatory, a narrow seal is visible around the edge of the frameless glass unit.

SunSeeker Doors' Frameless Glass Doors are made to specific measurements at our Bedfordshire site where we also manufacture SunSeeker Slimline bi folding doors with a narrow profile aluminium frame, powder coated to your RAL colour choice. All our doors are made to each customer's exacting requirements and installed by our experienced team.

hot hot hot - and loving my bifolding doors with blinds!

From a member of our marketing team, working fom home: 

Phew! Finally, a few warm summer days and I have my folding-sliding doors on a south facing lounge. This morning, I kept the doors and the integral blinds closed to keep the room cool as I worked, just stepping through the single opening door when I ventured out to the garden for a small break, now and then.
Eventually, as the intense sun stopped beating down directly on the glass doors, I opened up the whole wall of bi-folds, in one smooth movement, to let the breeze waft in from the garden, carrying with it the fragrance of roses, honeysuckle and the early-bird menu from the local pub.
It was heaven - and I felt compelled to write this before stopping work for the day and enjoying the late afternoon shade on the patio.

Bi Folding Doors with Integral Horizontal Blinds = Customer Satisfaction

SunSeeker Doors installed a set of bi folding patio doors with integrated blinds for a customer living north of London almost three years ago...

"We still really like our bifolding doors, so clean-looking and easy to live with plus they feel so sturdy, unlike the pvc doors we have elsewhere. Our decision to order the bifolds with blinds inside the double glazing was the easily the best decision we made, even though it pushed the price up.

"Last week, the cable TV engineer was here and he much admired our doors and blinds; this week, the new window cleaner remarked how impressed he was with them. In both cases, I'm sure they thought I was a sales rep for SunSeeker Doors because I so proudly demonstrated the ease of aluminium frames, dust-free blinds, etc!

"We've had the bifolds since 2007 and we're as pleased with them now as the day they were new. If we ever move, we'll buy them again. I can't imagine why anyone would choose anything else!"

Announcing Double Glazed Frameless Glass Doors

This is the first photograph of our latest product to be manufactured and installed in our UK: double glazed, Frameless Glass Doors with excellent thermal values. 

Based on the frameless Glass Curtains concept (which are single glazed glass barriers, popular in Mediterranean Europe) of each door panel sliding to the side of the aperture and pivoting 90 degrees to stack neatly to the side of the opening, SunSeeker Doors' double glazed frameless glass doors are the latest development in patio doors with the ultimate viewable area.

Also in the photograph is a white framed, traditional sliding patio door. Comparing the walk-through space when the doors are open, Frameless Glass Doors enable almost double the access width of the sliding door system.

Patio Door Frame Colours

Your decision regarding patio doors will affect the next ten or more years of your life, whether you stay in your home or decide to sell it, therefore there are two aspects to consider ... what do you want now and what is a good, longer-term investment?

Longer term, especially if you may be selling your home, the patio doors need to look good and work efficiently. Aluminium framed doors are strong, almost impossible to damage with normal use and are virtually maintenance-free.

As for now, SunSeeker Doors' slimline frames give greater viewing pleasure than many alternatives. Not only are the frames narrower than those made of flimsier material but there is a vast choice of colours.

Aluminium frames are powder-coated, often in natural white so could be mistaken for pvc, but this process allows for the frames to be coated in any colour from the RAL range. Click here for a frame colour chart. Additionally, the frames are "thermally broken" for excellent insulation qualities, far greater than most wooden framed patio doors.

SunSeeker Doors offers traditional two-door patio doors plus bifolding options up to 7.2 metres - you can replace a whole wall of your house, providing the construction meets building regulations.

We measure, manufacture, deliver, install, test and guarantee our product and labour. SunSeeker Doors are made in England, to order; white frames can be installed in a few days, if necessary (see our Express BiFolding Door Service).

Check out the gallery of installations on our web site - then use our quote request form for a no-obligation quotation. Give your home a makeover with SunSeeker Doors. What frame colour will you choose?

Bifolding Doors and Blinds - discussion on MumsNet

Q: Anyone got those bi-folding doors- what do you do about blinds?

Our thanks to one of our customers who provided this response:

"I've been through all this three years ago!

We didn't choose wooden doors for the reason given above (we'd had wooden in our previous house) so we compared pvc with aluminium and there was no comparison! Aluminium won hands down in all areas except price.

The frames are stronger and much narrower so that you are looking through the glass rather than at an ugly plastic frame, and they come in a range of colours (in the end we played safe and opted for white).

Following a demonstration of doors and blinds at a SunSeeker Doors installation, we felt confident enough to spend the extra on integral blinds inside the glass. They come with a guarantee but because there is no strain placed on the blinds' mechanism when it is being opened, closed, etc., there's little chance of it going wrong.

That was three years ago and (touch wood - oh no, I can't, I opted for metal!) the blinds have worked perfectly and we have had absolutely no problems sliding and folding the doors.

I don't like curtains and all the vertical blinds we've ever had have gone wrong so every window has slatted venetians but only the bifolding doors have them inside and all the other blinds in the house are dusty! (and a couple of them have gone wonky with boys - includes husband - tugging at them but this isn't a problem with the integral blinds).

I don't know which area you live but it might be worth checking as I can recommend them. They measure up and manufacture to order, in England, so they can install quite quickly too (this service is in the price).

I hope that helps."

Extracts from a customers blog ...

January 2008. Having built the outer shell, it was time to knock down the original load-bearing back wall of the house. At this stage we are wondering why we decided to do this ...

First, the lounge was reduced from
12 x 14 to 12 x 10 by the erection of a plywood wall to keep some warmth in and some dirt out, meaning that the family living room was cramped with 3 sofas, a TV and no windows. The photograph shows the ply wall, also artily reflected in the mirror. (Can you see the green-brown carpet? Leafy-swirly survivor from the '70s!) Oh, and those plants didn't survive.

Little jobs got done:
the utility room was built, which provided a mini-kitchen so that the actual kitchen could be gutted, and the downstairs loo was moved in order to accommodate this - accordingly, the upstairs facilities were working. The oppressive ply wall came down and our living area moved south into the new extension. Larger, lighter and brighter: oh joy! This enabled the ceiling and walls ...

Let SunSeeker Doors transform your home, extension or conservatory with Slimline Aluminium Bifolding Doors or Frameless Glass Patio Doors & Frameless Glass Room Dividers.

Low Cill / Threshhold with Aluminium Bifolds


When comparing bi folding sliding patio doors and room dividers, consider whether the bottom runner for the doors enables easy access for people and objects as they move between rooms, the conservatory or the garden.

SunSeeker Doors' use of aluminium makes low cills our standard for bifolding doors installation, including (as shown above) the weather cill for bifolding patio doors.

SunSeekers Doors are manufactured in England so we are well aware of the nuances of English weather - wet, cold and occasionally hot. Our bifolding doors are a match for the English climate and the insulation qualities of our thermally-broken aluminium frames are excellent.

Spring has arrived - time to think ahead about your plans for this summer. Take a look at our web site and contact us for a quotation for your folding sliding doors ... and enjoy the great outdoors with a single step across a SunSeeker Doors low cill.

Bifolds and Frameless Patio Doors - which to choose?

If you are thinking of investing in some home improvement, enjoy the results within the next month by creating a fabulous view with folding sliding doors.

SunSeeker Doors' aluminium framed, double glazed bifolding doors will keep your home warm as their thermal insulation qualities are excellent and, when the warm weather finally arrives, the bifolds will fold and slide to allow maximum access to the garden, conservatory or balcony, allowing you to enjoy the fresh air of a summer breeze and al fresco living.

SunSeeker Doors is now taking orders for a Spring installation of double glazed frameless glass patio doors, based on the glass curtains principle of individual doors or frameless panels. Frameless glass doors slide along top and bottom runners and, if slid along to the end, will pivot 90 degrees to stack at right-angles, out of the access path (similar to bi folding-sliding doors).

For more information, visit the new web site and fill in the form for a no-obligation quote for both products so that you can decide which is best for your home.

Enjoy a great summer with SunSeeker Doors!

Watching and Waiting for Warmer Weather

A client told us "Another useful thing about our bifolding doors opening up between the dining area and patio is that we don't have to buy an outdoor table that clutters the patio (and we don't have room to store it anywhere else); we just fully open up the doors and carry the dining out. In fact, several times last summer, we didn't even bother - to keep out of the cool breeze we just left the table inside the threshhold."

It's an alternative - alt fresco instead of al fresco!

If you have a problem with limited space for your patio furniture or you just don't like clutter on your patio, this could be an ideal solution for you. Bifolding Doors from SunSeeker Doors, 01582 492 730

Sunny but Cold - Want to See Outside, Not Be Outside?

  • Bifolds have many advantages over sliding doors and standard French doors.
  • Aluminium frames have many advantages over wood and plastic.
  • Slatted blinds have many advantages over curtains.

Put this all together and what have you got? Read this article to find out!

January 2010. It's cold outside but the sun has been shining on much of England. We want to let as much light as we can at this time of year but sometime the sun is so low in the sky that we need to filter some of the rays. Slatted Venetian Blinds!

Unlike fabric curtains, slatted blinds are practical. They have their own "dimmer-switch" that lets you control the amount of light peeping or pouring in through the glass doors or windows. The down-side to slatted blinds is that the surface area that collects dust! Even with various cleaning implements available, slats are not quick nor easy to keep clean.

Except ... you can now order patio doors that have slatted blinds sealed inside the double glazing cavity, where there is no dirt or dust!

Slimline bifolding patio doors can be ordered with venetian blinds secured within the glazing cavity. Integral blinds are not cheap but they are clean and maintenance-free for life!

Consider how expensive it would be for swathes of good quality, lined, fabric curtains on a long pole or curtain track. This would be a considerable cost saving towards your slatted blinds which perform a far superior function. On a bright day with a low sun, do you really want to obscure the light completely by drawing heavy curtains?

For technical information about uniblinds and how they work, visit our web site,, where you will also find more details about our bifolding patio doors.
