How do I go about placing an order?
To place an order, simply give us a call us, or send an email. We can then get in touch to discuss the project further, and complete the order form together. This will include things like door furniture choices and threshold details.
We'll also go through any other design details relating to the doors or any other requirements you may have. Once this has all been decided and confirmed, we'll send you the order form to sign.
When this has been signed and returned to us, along with your deposit, the project will become live. We can then arrange a survey and begin the process of scheduling your installation.
So to place an order, simply give us a call us, or send an email.
Will you be completing a site survey?
When you're happy with your order, and are ready to proceed, our surveyor (Gerald) will visit site and complete a survey of the opening and surrounding in which the doors will be fitted.
A site survey is included in the price of all our projects. It allows us to be 100% sure that the product we provide meets your requirements exactly.
Who will be installing my doors?
All of our doors are installed by our fully trained fitters, who receive continuous training from our suppliers, and are experts in fitting bifold doors and sliding doors.
Are your guarantees insurance backed?
All of our guarantees are insurance backed. This means that whatever happens to us, your guarantees are covered.
What deposit is required?
Your deposit will be 50% of the amount of your order, the remaining 50% is then payable on the day of installation.
We accept a personal cheque, bank transfer, debit and credit cards (please note credit cards are subject to a 2.5% charge).
Where are these Sunflex doors manufactured?
Sunflex doors are designed and manufactured in Germany. Every door is made with precision German engineering.
What are the sightline measurements for this bi-fold door?
The sightline (the measurement of the door frame between panes of glass) is only 115mm - this is one of the narrowest sightlines on the market.
Where in the market do the Sunflex bi-fold doors sit?
The Sunflex range of bi-fold doors is as good as it gets. Every bi-fold has its unique selling points. It might be price, lead time, stock colour range etc, but the one thing the Sunflex range is known for is its quality, you just won't get better.
What are the stock colours for the Sunflex 55?
The stock colours for the Sunflex 55 Bi-fold Doors are:
- White RAL 9016
- Anthracite grey RAL 7016
- Light silver RAL 9006
- Dark silver RAL 9007
These four are Sunflex's stock colours, but if you want something different there are over 300 colours to choose from in the RAL colour range.
How wide can a Sunflex 55 bi-fold panel/door/leaf be?
The SF55 has a maximum panel width of 1100mm which is 100mm wider than a lot of doors on the market. This enables you to have fewer panels in a larger opening and as bi-folds are primarily priced on the number of panels this can save you a lot of money.
Is this bi-fold door system top or bottom running?
It's a bottom running system so all the weight is on the bottom meaning you don't need to beef up your lintel more than necessary.
As we sell both top and bottom running systems we can be totally honest and say that in terms of operation there is very little between the two.
What is the maximum height for the Sunflex 55?
This bi-fold door system goes up to a whopping 3500mm! That is high!
What guarantees does this Sunflex bi-fold door have?
These doors come with a 10 year product guarantee direct from the manufacturer, Sunflex, in addition to our 10 year guarantee on our installation should you opt for us to fit the doors. As with all our guarantees they are insurance backed for your piece of mind.
What’s an insurance backed guarantee?
When you place an order with us we take out an insurance policy on your doors. This covers you should the worst happen and Bristol Bifold went into liquidation in the following 10 years.
When is the deposit and final payment due?
50% is required with order, with the balance due on day of installation.
What payment methods do you offer?
We accept personal cheque, bank transfer, debit and credit cards (credit cards are subject to a 2.5% charge).
What are the lead times for the Sunflex 55 Aluminium bi-fold door?
The lead time for the Sunflex 55 Aluminium bi-fold door is 8-10 weeks for white and RAL colours.
The lead time is the time it takes to have your bi-fold door installed from the moment you place your order. As these doors are manufactured in the German factory the lead time is a little longer than some of its UK counterparts.
