If you’re looking for a practical, contemporary feel, Origin’s made-to-measure pleated blinds are both sleek and elegant. Fitted neatly to the beading of a bi-fold door or window, they offer a minimalistic look with maximum light and heat control. Resting snugly on the glass, they reduce any light strikes and prevent the blinds from moving about when the doors or windows are open.
"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."
No compromising on thermal efficiency
Because pleated blinds are fitted to the frame and glass exterior (not within the glass itself), the panes don’t have to compromise their thermal efficiency. Not only does this ensure the glass and doors maintain their thermal performance, but it also allows any maintenance or cleaning to be undertaken with ease.
No extra measuring with Origin Doors or Windows
If you choose your pleated blinds at the same time as your new Origin Doors or Windows (or they’re intended for existing Origin Doors or Windows), they won’t require any additional measuring. We’re able to easily calculate the dimensions from your order or serial number, making your new blinds a breeze to order.
Origin Pleated Blinds come in six attractive colours – ranging from white and neutral through to black. Whichever colour you choose, it will come fitted with a pearlescent solar coating on the back to reflect as much heat and light as possible.
You can also choose one of our colour-coded head rails to complement the blind colours.
