Origin are the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium Bi-folding Doors, Windows and Blinds
"I had the Bifold doors and a residential door. I purchased my Bifolds through Basfords in Nottingham I live in Birmingham and these guys were the best to go with price wise and confidence wise. I cannot tell you how fantastic my doors look the attention to detail on both the Bifolds and the front door is second to non. Thank you to Origin and thank you to Basfords who are a real credit to the Origin team. "
"Hello, I have this week had a bi-fold door fitted in my home by Fox Windows and Doors of Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. My wife and I are very pleased with the door. However, although we requested that the internal seals and gaskets would be white in colour to match the internal colour of the door, one of the gaskets is black. See enclosed photos. When we questioned this with our supplier, we were informed that they had contacted your company and were advised that this particular gasket (the one that seals the main opening door) was only supplied in black. This seems a bad idea as it detracts from the look of the door. Why offer all other seals and gaskets in white but offer this one only in black? If you cannot supply this gasket in black, there is not much that I can do about it, but my feedback would be that in future you should offer it in white as it will improve the look of the door. If in future you do decide to supply it in white, can I have one please?!! Thank you. John Bench p.s. this "review" is a copy of an email that I sent to Origin customer services on 17th November. I have not received a reply!"
"The doors are extremely well made and fit perfectly. They look fantastic"
"Have had various issues with the installers of my windows. But the product itself is just fabulous! House has never been as warm! So happy, well worth the money. "
"Very pleased with Bi-folds noticed big difference from are old patio double glazed doors, fitters had radio on outside and you could hardly hear it and we think it made room warmer."
"It was obvious to see by both looks and operations that it was a quality product "
"Brilliant doors and they look great! Would highly recommend "
"Beautiful doors, professionally fitted for a good price. "
"Good quality product. Bi-fold doors far better than our old sliding doors. "
"Origin Bi fold doors are absolutely great, very easy to glide back to open and close. Made a difference to the room. "
"Doors very good but small issue with finish on leading edge of door. Silver cover bar does not extend to top of door. Examples in Orion Windows showroom no better. Poor finishing to an otherwisea good product. Orion Windows chased up with yourselves and was promised a call from your technical team to explain the problem but nothing forthcoming. (See attached photo) Disappointed customer"
"Fitted quickly and expertly by Essex Bifolds. It all works very smoothly."
""Romsey Conservatories provided an excellent service and patiently held the quote while we obtained planning permission for our 5 panel cornerless bifold on a second floor balcony overlooking the sea. They liaised extremely well with us and our builder who was managing the work, and the installation went very smoothly, on time and with no problems. After sales service has been faultless. The end result is stunning!""
"Product very good - would have welcomed a guide to maintain the bi-fold doors for on going reference especially as i believe they may have dropped making opening difficult. But no faulting the quality. "
"The doors give a lot of light and are easy to move"
"we had a new bifold patio door fitted by indelux windows of Cheltenham Gloucestershire. very pleased with the origin door and also very pleased with the fitters a very clean and tidy job .many thanks"
"Beautiful door. Will be purchasing my front door as well soon as the funds are available. "
"The quality and final finish is excellent. The installation was done by contractors who installed without any problems. The Warranty validity is reflection of the quality. "
"Only had the the bi fold doors about a month and seem so far to be okay. However, I have two issues, firstly condensation on the frame, it is a new build so this could be due to the building drying out and time will tell. Secondly, I require a door restrictor, but Origin do not offer one, consequently my only option is to add a cabin hook which will not improve the appearance of the doors. "
"Beautiful stylish big old doors , Easy to use and maintain "
"Very pleased, with the panel, which goes beautifully with the doors."

About our company history
When cousins Neil Ginger and Victoria Brocklesby recognised a gap in the UK market for high quality Bi-folding Doors back in 2002, they decided to design, create and manufacture the highest quality Bi-folding Doors in the UK and support this with uncompromising levels of service.
Since then, Origin have continued to work tirelessly to create Bi-folding Doors which offer flawless design and functionality.
Over the years, business growth and inevitable expansion has meant that Origin now offer the natural companions to doors - electronic roller blinds and stylish aluminium windows.
Origin has always been a family run business and despite being established as the UK’s leading manufacturers of Bi-folding doors, the family ethos remains at the heart of our company.
The Origin Timeline
- Origin was established by cousins, Neil Ginger & Victoria Brocklesby, when they discovered that they were unable to get high quality aluminium folding sliding doors for their building projects.
- After a few years of operating, Origin moved premises to its first fully equipped factory.
- In order to keep up with demand, Origin expanded its premises in High Wycombe which helped increase manufacturing capacity significantly.
- This was the first year that Origin manufactured over 10,000 doors in a single calendar year.
- After less than a decade of operating in the UK, Origin set up a show room and sales office in Dubai, UAE to increase the exporting side of the business.
- With continued growth and Origin’s marketing budget on the rise, January 2012 marked the launch of Origin’s first TV advertising campaign.
- Not only was this the year of the official launch in North America, but it also marked when the Origin Window was born as well as Origin’s second TV campaign being aired.
