"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!""

"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."
"We had Origin Bi fold patio doors fitted to our new extension,and they look fantastic . The doors are well made using good quality fittings.We have Sun in the mornings so they make the Garden feel part of the house."
"Dropped in to their showroom unannounced with my 2 small children. They were extremely accommodating and I didn't feel that they were at all annoyed with my children rubbing their grubby hands on their lovely clean display doors! The order process was straight forward and I felt informed throughout. The fitting was completed quickly and the staff were very nice. Would reccomended Bristol Bi-fold. "
"Our bifold doors have enabled us to bring the outdoors indoor! The product is faultless and so, so easy to keep clean."
A couple from Berkshire are now enjoy stunning riverside views thanks to a £170,000 renovation. Mr. and Mrs. Brown, from Purley on Thames, radically updated their character property to create a huge open plan living area with breath-taking views overlooking the River Thames.
The property was renovated by Kevin Brown and his wife, over a three year period, with the aim of making the most of their home’s riverside location.
One major element of the project was removing the existing wooden sliding doors and replacing them with Origin’s sleek, made-to-order aluminium bi-folding doors. The wooden doors were heavy, making them difficult to operate, and they didn’t hold up very well to the weather as they often let in drafts and water.
Kevin said: “I knew I wanted bi-folds because of the space they offer. I was drawn to the functionality and how you can open up and transform an entire space.”
After speaking with Origin, Kevin specified a total of four sets of bi-fold doors, each having three doors. Two of these sets were installed on the ground floor, and are separated by a large wooden beam that runs vertically throughout the house. These doors helped create a seamless link between the living room and front garden, making the most of the space available and drawing the eye to the riverfront views. The doors were fitted into apertures of 2967mm, with each door leaf measuring 939mm by a standard height of 2271mm.
The Browns installed the other two sets of bi-fold doors upstairs, which open up the open plan kitchen and dining area onto a balcony to create a bright and airy space with amazing views. The doors sit below a gable window which allows natural light to flood into the home. The doors upstairs fit apertures of 2965mm, with each door leaf measuring 939mm by a standard height of 2126mm.
The doors are extremely easy to operate as the wheelbase moves smoothly along the solid aluminium carriage, so all the Browns need to do to create a whole new living space in their home is simply slide the doors open. The doors were installed just four weeks after they were ordered as a result of Origin’s ‘Your Lead Time, Not Ours’ zero lead time service. This quick service meant the couple’s doors could be delivered exactly when they needed them for their project.
Impressed with the quality and service from Origin, the Browns continued their renovation project by using Origin Windows throughout the house. Coupled on to the bi-fold doors upstairs are two fixed pane Origin windows. These were supplied as the same height as the doors to ensure that the view is not obstructed by a wall or corner, giving a full panoramic landscape.
The casement windows in the kitchen area were also replaced with Origin’s, which gave a stunning finish, as the flush casement finish has been designed to complement the elegant style of the doors. There are two sets of windows installed in the kitchen which are separated by a bold, white wall. They measure 2560mm x 870mm and 1685mm x 865mm.
A similar effect was done downstairs in the living area. The windows in the living area measure 2578mm x 1370mm, and are coloured in Anthracite Grey in order to match the doors.
The Origin Window was initially launched as Mr. Brown’s doors were being installed, but he and his wife had no hesitation in specifying them for his project as not only are they stunningly finished, but they are also incredibly secure and are available on a one week lead time which is revolutionary in the windows industry.
The doors and windows were finished in an Anthracite Grey powder coating, to offer a contrast and complement the dark wooden beams. The powder coating on Origin’s doors and windows is exceptionally hardwearing, requires minimal maintenance and is resistant to scratches and colour fading.
The Browns completed the look of their new doors and windows with Origin’s electric roller blinds, and opted for Strata SPC Parchment and Perspective Grey fabric. These blinds are completely bespoke, tailored to the size and colouring of the doors, and gives the Browns a cosy private retreat in winter.
The innovative addition of Origin’s Bi-fold Doors, Windows and Blinds has given the home a unique, modern feature which means the couple can now enjoy uninterrupted views of the River Thames.
