  • Low threshold

    Seamless indoor to outdoor living

    The ultimate beauty of bi-folding doors is that they can transform a home by creating an expanse of space between the indoor and outdoor areas, which lets natural light flood into the home. By removing the barrier between the inside and out, these doors can release the potential of your home.

    The low threshold design allows for even level floor finishes inside and outside the home, making the transition between each space seamless and creating a stunning sense of space. Weathered and non-weathered thresholds are available so you can order the most suitable option for your home. To find out more visit our threshold FAQs.

  • Aluminium

    For style and security

    The strength of the frames is one of the key elements to consider when investing in new doors or windows. At Origin, we use premium grade aluminium to manufacture energy efficient, strong and durable frames, which offers superior benefits when compared to wood and UPVC. The innate strength of aluminium means the frames are extremely narrow, allowing for an expansive view and plenty of natural light.

The evolution of Origin DNA
Our newly designed range of high performance bi-fold door components


The gearbox is responsible for operating security shoot bolts top and bottom and was designed with strength, durability and smooth operation in mind. It has been cycle tested 115,000 times and endured a 400 hour neutral salt spray test without incurring any defects or measurable wear. In order to increase efficiency - all excess weight has been engineered out of this component whilst maintaining a rack and pin design for strength and flawless operation.

Bottom Fork

Bottom Fork

Providing a link between the door and bottom carriage, the bottom fork is a solid zinc component re-engineered into a single piece casting. In testing this has demonstratably increased the already high performance strength of this essential component.

In the real world; this heightened strength translates to smoother running. When combined with other new design improvements, we see that our doors now require 31% less force to open, just 50 Newton’s to be exact.

With it's adjustable design, our new fork will help you achieve the precision installation you need.

Weather deflecting technology ensures any wind or rain is directed away from your home. The forks can be powder-coated to match the finish of your doors bringing an unrivalled aesthetic no other bi-fold can offer.

Our 20 year guarantee


The carriage ensures the smooth running of the doors. Another slimline and efficient component created as a single piece casting which helps achieve unrivalled strength and longevity.

In order to ensure performance across our industry leading guarantee; the Origin carriage is coupled with guide wheels manufactured from high grade Acetal (at three times the usual density) ensuring an efficient, quieter operation that is partly self-lubricating.


The new D handle, which also comes in any colour, has been developed for superior strength and sleek design. The handle, used to pull the doors closed; now comes with a flush finish, stainless steel retaining pin and incorporates a concealed fixing which removes unsightly screw heads and cover caps giving a superior aesthetic.

Slave Handle

Slave Handle

The new ergonomically designed slave handle is used to lock the doors in place when closed. It incorporates modern aesthetics with industry leading functional design. This component has outperformed the highest test by 1.5 times the required limit. They are available in any RAL colour to match your doors and have also been cycle tested with the gearbox over 150,000 times. It has withstood a pull of 1600 Newtons; or 163Kg - the equivalent of one hundred and sixty three bags of household sugar.
