Our Story

Having gathered extensive industry knowledge, we could see that there was a better way to deliver aluminium bifolding doors to the trade. And, in 2014 we formed AluFold Direct, offering a level of quality and certainty that had not been seen in the fenestration market before.

We've perfected our manufacturing processes, invested heavily in our operations and trained our fabrication team to manufacture aluminium glazing products with skill and precision. By doing this we're becoming a leader in the market, transforming how the trade buys aluminium windows and doors.

The first step was to make buying aluminium glazing as straightforward and simple as buying PVCu. Aluminium offered more opportunities for installers – it wasn’t a saturated market and it offered higher profit margins.

Historically, buying aluminium windows and doors has been a bad experience for installers, with high levels of remakes and long lead times. We transformed this by delivering aluminium bifold doors in one week unglazed, two weeks glazed.

We listened to our customers and expanded our product offering to deliver all products on the same quick lead times. This helps installation companies take advantage of the new demands for aluminium glazing, driven by high-end home improvement programmes such as Grand Designs.

Working closely with our supply partners and customers, we found out what customers needed and created the infrastructure to deliver it. This meant that installers could rely on us to deliver certainty for them so they could make more profit, fit in more jobs every week and grow their business.

Support at every step of the way

  • Order from survey: With speedy lead times of just 2 weeks, you can order your aluminium glazing from survey instead of plans, reducing the possibility of mis-measures, mis-fits and re-makes.
  • High stock holdings: High stock levels of aluminium profile and hardware to maintain fast turnarounds.
  • Direct to site delivery: Aluminium glazing, delivered direct to site in an unmarked van, right first time, ready to fit.
  • Right first time, every time: Expert manufacturing team trained in-house to deliver precise made-to-measure products, to make fitting simple and straightforward.
