MANSFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM, Apr 08 (MARKET WIRE) —
Bi-fold doors, also known as folding or concertina doors, provide
complete open access up to six metres wide and started becoming more
popular in 2008 when many consumers were installing them in their homes.
Later that year, DIY conservatory retailer ConservatoryLand, commenced
manufacture and introduced to their customers the option of upgrading
their DIY conservatories with bi-fold doors to open up their house to
their conservatory or their conservatory to their garden.
The company marketed their new product by installing bi-fold doors in
their Mansfield showroom, adding them to their website and sending out
fliers with their brochures. Since then, sales of bi-fold doors in their
conservatories have rapidly increased with one in ten customers now
When installed in a brick built property, the doors can be manufactured
up to six metres wide and up to four metres wide when installed in
conservatories. This is achieved with the company’s new bi-fold door
aluminium bolster system to provide the required support.
David Bingham, Director of the company comments “We are delighted with
response to our marketing campaign and started receiving orders within
days of introduction. Our bi-fold doors are a lovely product which
provide a huge opening to the home or conservatory compared to that of
traditional patio or French doors.”
Traditionally, bi-fold doors have been manufactured from timber or
aluminium and have been common place in continental countries for many
years, particularly in commercial public premises such as bars and
David Bingham continues “With more consumers looking for different ways
of enhancing their homes and with new technology now available to
manufacture bi-fold doors in maintenance free PVCu, popularity in the UK
residential market continues to increase and is expected to do so over
the coming years.
