Life with no boundaries

When the doors are fully opened, the outside is well and truly welcomed in. Lots of people opt for as little step between the inside and out as possible to give a seamless link. This is determined by the threshold. For external doors, we would recommend a weathered threshold as it has a small lip to create a weather tight seal, the track can be sunk into the floor so it leaves a small upstand of under 1cm.

Weathered thresholdWeathered threshold

Non-weathered thresholds have no lip and are usually used internally or in a sheltered area. They can be installed to be completely flush, however, they do not have the same high weather test results as our weathered threshold.

Safe and secure

Safe and secure

Origin have developed an outstandingly secure and completely unique bi-folding doors system.

A home isn’t a home without feeling safe and secure.That’s why Origin have developed an outstandingly secure bi-fold door which exceeds the latest security standards including Pas 23/24. Our unique 8 point locking system is combined with secure hinges and includes chamfered 20mm linear bolts to withstand attacks from even the most determined intruder.

One point of weakness can be the locking cylinder/barrel. At Origin, our cylinders are proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, offering a proven defence that is second to none. All of this, on top of the innately robust and strong aluminium profile, makes for an ultra-secure system.


Inspired by colour

Make it everything you’ve always wanted. Make it yours.

With over 150 different RAL shades and woodgrain finishes to choose from, you can be sure to find a colour that suits your style, no matter how subtle or outrageous it may be. Ranging from bright primary shades through to candy pastels and deeper earthy tones, the extensive colour palette is guaranteed to offer inspiration to homeowners and interior designers alike.

Dual Colour Option

Additionally, with a dual colour option available, it means that the exterior colour can complement the building style while the interior frame can blend in with or contrast your internal colour scheme. Many of our RAL colours come with the option of offering a matt, satin or gloss finish.

Keeping the family safe

Keeping the family safe

Safety and reliability are very important in a home, which is why the Origin Door incorporates features that protect all the family. The doors boast finger safe gaskets to prevent little fingers getting trapped when the doors are closing and magnetic catches that hold the doors in place while you operate them.

Our threshold options minimize boundaries, creating a seamless link between the inside and outside, and are designed to limit trip hazards and give wheelchair access.

Free Glide System

Free Glide System

The flawless operation of the Origin Bi-fold Door is a thing of wonder. The secret behind this effortless, smooth motion is concealed within the bottom track. An intelligently engineered short wheelbase carriage with six wheels, manufactured from a high grade acetal, guides the doors along the track seamlessly, enabling them to open and close with ease.

The slim line carriage has been designed to ensure a quiet and efficient operation.It’s quality that can be seen, felt and admired.

The Origin Component DNA

Hardware, components & accessories. Little things that mean a lot

We’ve left nothing to chance in the creation and manufacture of the Origin Bi-fold Door. Every detail has been scrutinised, every process meticulously tested and every component designed to ensure all elements perform to a harmonious perfection.

As Origin exclusively design and manufacture award winning products at our Buckinghamshire based factory, it means that everything is centrally controlled, from sourcing right through to delivery. In fact, Origin design and manufacture the components that make up the Origin Bi-fold Door,

ensuring that true innovation has been engineered at every level, because for us, having components that are specifically designed for purpose ensures a better performance, rather than a one size fits all, off-the-shelf solution.

Take the gearbox for example - it may be small, but don’t underestimate its contribution, power or importance. It’s responsible for operating the shoot bolts and locking the doors in place. Its new lightweight structure has been meticulously tested to the extremities without any compromise on performance or security.

Gearbox

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.

Gearbox
Bottom Fork

Bottom Fork

Providing a link between the door and bottom carriage, the bottom trolley system 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 trolley system 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 fork can be powder-coated to match the finish of your doors bringing an unrivalled aesthetic no other bi-fold can offer.

Carriage

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.

D-Handle

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.

D-Handle
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 Newton’s; or 163Kg - the equivalent of one hundred and sixty three bags of household sugar.

Handled with care

The handles of an Origin Door are the perfect finishing touch to the exquisitely designed system. Choose from a selection of elegant handle styles and rest assured that they have been designed and manufactured with the same care and dedication as every other component. In addition to striking the optimum balance between superior strength and sleek design, our handles are exhaustively cycle tested to ensure they mirror the flawless functionality of the doors and stand the test of time. Certain handle models can also be colour coordinated in any RAL colour.

Thermal efficiency

Thermal efficiency

Stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer...Designed to meet the demands of the UK climate, the Origin Bi-Fold Door has been engineered to give superior weather performance. While our doors invite natural light in and remove the barriers between inside and out, they also work to keep a home insulated all year round.

Origin exceed British Building Regulations for optimum thermal efficiency as they boast a certified U-Value of 1.32. The Origin Bi-fold Door also makes use of some of the most sophisticated weathertight seals to ensure the elements stay out. In real terms, this means energy bills will be reduced and your rooms will be usable all year round.

Low maintenance...

Low maintenance

Enjoy the view and space created with bi-fold doors, without the worry of time consuming and complicated maintenance.

The very nature of bi-folding doors demands precision design and engineering, making timber and uPVC inferior materials for maintaining alignment over the lifetime of the product. With our high grade aluminium, however, expanding and contracting is minimal, so it is guaranteed to offer the right combination of strength and weight to allow the doors to work flawlessly for decades to come. Its impeccable powder coated finish removes the need for periodic painting, maintenance and even protects against scratches and colour fading, ensuring that the doors maintain their good looks.

Mid-rail option

Mid-rail option

Helping further broaden your design possibilities, Origin offer the option of having a mid-rail pre-installed.

Paying tribute to an almost lost notion of a traditional singular back door, the mid-rail offers more privacy than a conventional door, and can be specified on any style whether it be for the bi-fold, corner, French or single door sets.

Elegantly executed, the mid-rail is fixed horizontally and is available in two options – one being a 60:40 split, and the other a 50:50 split.


Aluminium

Style and slim sightlines are nothing without the strength and security that aluminium brings.

Extremely strong yet weighing 67% less than steel, Origin use a premium grade aluminium across all products.

Needless to say, as with all things Origin, the aluminium that we use is far from average. By only using prime billets, it means that our aluminium has not been made up from re-melting scraps, which ensures much better control over the overall formulation, allowing a greater finish to be achieved.

Our aluminium brings benefits that you can and can’t see.

In terms of those you can’t see – aluminium’s innate strength makes the doors physically secure, virtually maintenance free, energy efficient and highly durable. It is also resilient to the elements, so the frames won’t flex, warp or corrode in varying weather conditions.

Our aluminium is hugely versatile and strong enough to easily accommodate us to manufacture complex door layouts, such as moving corner posts and bay setups, without being too heavy.

And for the benefits you can see – you will only need to feel an Origin Door to understand.

The sightlines of an Origin Bi-fold Door are stunningly slim to ensure a maximised view. The frames are fi nished with the highest grade powder coating available, ensuring a superior, scratch resistant and smooth surface.

It’s the quality, strength and durability that aluminium brings which allows Origin to provide such long guarantees.
