  • Handles

    When using your bifold doors, it's the handles that you'll come into contact with the most. That's why the handles on your Origin aluminium bifold door are both strong and robust.

    Bifold Handles That Look Great

    It's also crucial that they look great and are faultless during operation, which is why a great deal of attention has been placed on the aesthetics and ergonomic design.

    Handle Colours & Materials

    The handles come in white, black, chrome, gold or premium stainless steel, so you have lots of choice.

    Types of Handle

    The Lever Handle is the handle you will use to open your lead door Below it will be a separate escutcheon into which you'll insert a key when locking or unlocking. NB. Please note that not all door sets have a lead door, this depends on your door layout.

    The Slave Handle is the handle that operates the shoot bolts. Shoot bolts are the locks that that go into the top and the bottom of the frame. One slave handle goes between each door/panel.

  • Specifications

    How big is each individual panel?

    Panels come in different sizes and depend on your chosen configuration. As explained higher up the page, they have a minimum and maximum width and height, and these measurements vary between door manufacturers.

    The table below shows those minimum and maximum dimensions.

    General minimum and maximum dimensions for bi-fold door panels

    Minimum height

    60–70 inches

    Maximum height

    120–145 inches

    Minimum width

    16 inches (odd number of doors)

    28 inches (even number of doors)

    Maximum width

    420–780 inches

    How many panels do I need?

    This depends on the space into which you’re installing the doors. There are few limitations to the number of panels you have—the minimum is two, while there is no real maximum.

    Generally, bi-fold doors that accommodate around eight panels will need another track. The way in which doors are transported for delivery means the track can be no longer than around 20 feet. Any doors larger than that will need two different tracks, which are coupled together during installation.

    Since panels are available in custom sizes, manufacturers can adjust dimensions to ensure you can have the number of panels you want.

    How thin are the door frames?

    Bi-fold doors made of aluminum (rather than vinyl or wood) have the slimmest frames, as the strength of the metal means the panels can accommodate larger, heavier panes of glass and provide a much wider view as a result.

    Origin bifolding door frames are built using high-strength aluminum. This enables us to achieve the thinnest possible door frame while maintaining strength and security. The frames measure 3 inches front to back, while the door sashes are around 2.8 inches wide.
