When the doors are fully opened, the outside is well and truly welcomed in. Lots of people opt for as little step between the inside and out as possible to give a seamless link. This is determined by the threshold. For external doors, we would recommend a weathered threshold as it has a small lip to create a weather tight seal, the track can be sunk into the floor so it leaves a small upstand of under 1cm.
Non-weathered thresholds have no lip and are usually used internally or in a sheltered area. They can be installed to be completely flush, however, they do not have the same high weather test results as our weathered threshold.
Origin have developed an outstandingly secure and completely unique bi-folding doors system.
A home isn’t a home without feeling safe and secure. That’s why Origin have developed an outstandingly secure bi-fold door which exceeds the latest security standards including Pas 23/24. Our unique 8 point locking system is combined with secure hinges and includes chamfered 20mm linear bolts to withstand attacks from even the most determined intruder.
One point of weakness can be the locking cylinder/barrel. At Origin, our cylinders are proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, offering a proven defence that is second to none. All of this, on top of the innately robust and strong aluminium profile, makes for an ultra-secure system.CONTACT US

The flawless operation of the Origin Bi-fold Door is a thing of wonder.
The secret behind this effortless, smooth motion is concealed within the bottom track. An intelligently engineered short wheelbase carriage with six wheels, manufactured from a high grade acetal, guides the doors along the track seamlessly, enabling them to open and close with ease.
The slim line carriage has been designed to ensure a quiet and efficient operation. It’s quality that can be seen, felt and admired.CONTACT US
The handles of an Origin Door are the perfect finishing touch to the exquisitely designed system.
Choose from a selection of elegant handle styles and rest assured that they have been designed and manufactured with the same care and dedication as every other component.
In addition to striking the optimum balance between superior strength and sleek design, our handles are exhaustively cycle tested to ensure they mirror the flawless functionality of the doors and stand the test of time.
Certain handle models can also be colour coordinated in any RAL colour.
Stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer...
Designed to meet the demands of the UK climate, the Origin Bi-Fold Door has been engineered to give superior weather performance. While our doors invite natural light in and remove the barriers between inside and out, they also work to keep a home insulated all year round.
Origin exceed British Building Regulations for optimum thermal efficiency as they boast a certified U-Value of 1.32 triple glazed. The Origin Bi-fold Door also makes use of some of the most sophisticated weathertight seals to ensure the elements stay out.

Enjoy the view and space created with bi-fold doors, without the worry of time consuming and complicated maintenance.
The very nature of bi-folding doors demands precision design and engineering, making timber and uPVC inferior materials for maintaining alignment over the lifetime of the product. With our high grade aluminium, however, expanding and contracting is minimal, so it is guaranteed to offer the right combination of strength and weight to allow the doors to work flawlessly for decades to come. Its impeccable powder coated finish removes the need for periodic painting, maintenance and even protects against scratches and colour fading, ensuring that the doors maintain their good looks.CONTACT US
Helping further broaden your design possibilities, Origin offer the option of having a mid-rail pre-installed.
Paying tribute to an almost lost notion of a traditional singular back door, the mid-rail offers more privacy than a conventional door, and can be specified on any style whether it be for the bi-fold, corner, French or single door sets.
Elegantly executed, the mid-rail is fixed horizontally and is available in two options – one being a 60:40 split, and the other a 50:50 split.
weighs 67% less than steel
Style and slim sightlines are nothing without the strength and security that aluminium brings.
Extremely strong yet weighing 67% less than steel, Origin use a premium grade aluminium across all products.
Needless to say, as with all things Origin, the aluminium that we use is far from average. By only using prime billets, it means that our aluminium has not been made up from re-melting scraps, which ensures much better control over the overall formulation, allowing a greater finish to be achieved.
Our aluminium brings benefits that you can and can’t see.
In terms of those you can’t see – aluminium’s innate strength makes the doors physically secure, virtually maintenance free, energy efficient and highly durable. It is also resilient to the elements, so the frames won’t flex, warp or corrode in varying weather conditions.
Our aluminium is hugely versatile and strong enough to easily accommodate us to manufacture complex door layouts, such as moving corner posts and bay setups, without being too heavy.
And for the benefits you can see – you will only need to feel an Origin Door to understand.
The sightlines of an Origin Bi-fold Door are stunningly slim to ensure a maximised view. The frames are fi nished with the highest grade powder coating available, ensuring a superior, scratch resistant and smooth surface.
It’s the quality, strength and durability that aluminium brings which allows Origin to provide such long guarantees.CONTACT US

“ We have just had two sets of bifolds and two roof lanterns installed for our new extension. We couldn't be happier with the products or the service. They create a real wow factor.
We did an enormous amount of research including on all the German brands and always came back to the British-made Origin bifold doors - ours are floor to ceiling triple-glazed (2.4m) and are simply stunning. The aluminium lanterns are also very slick - slim profiles and no ugly hoods - really state of the art. The service was excellent throughout - Clive even dropped in some samples so we could check the colour schemes and we visited his showroom a few times.The installers Ross and Sonnie did a great job fitting both.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company or the fantastic doors and lanterns to anybody. ”
“ I would like to pass on our thanks for a quality service and support from the initial stages of choosing the right design for the Origin Bi Folds, French doors and Window right though to the installation and aftercare. Clive and his team were professional and resolved any issues we had quickly, efficiently and with no fuss. As others have mentioned I would highly recommend Essex Bi-Fold Door Company to anyone ”
“ Abby and I just wanted to offer our most heartfelt thanks for both your wonderful assistance and the quality of the doors you have provided.
When we first contacted you having had our previous door supplier gone bust you provided a very reasonable quotation the same day we requested it along with all of the specifications for the doors. You supplied both a fitted and a supply only price with a remarkable supply time of 7 days and fitting of 2-3 weeks.
You went even further in your assistance for us and managed to fit the doors within 7 days to help us get our home secure even fitting them yourself on a Saturday! Talk about going the extra mile we think you must have gone the extra ten or so miles to help us.
We were left with a beautiful set of doors that have been expertly fitted and work wonderfully. So once again thank you so very much for your help, kindness and wonderful product. ”
