Comparing the OB-49 and the OB-72
The key difference between the OB-49 and the OB-72 are the sightlines they achieve. Both offer a modern take on the traditional Bi-Fold door system through the perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality.
Made to stand the test of time
No door leaves our state-of-the-art factory without having gone through rigorous quality testing at every stage of the manufacturing process, giving you peace of mind that you’re choosing something which is truly built to last.
Our in-house research and development team works tirelessly to refine how we develop and manufacture our doors, ensuring we equip them with the highest-quality features and components.
Indeed, we’re so confident in our doors that we offer our industry-leading 20-year guarantee with every installation.
Low thresholds to connect your home and garden
Creating that truly seamless link between home and garden is all in the threshold. We recommend a weathered threshold, which can be sunk into the floor with a small 1 cm lip to provide a protective weather tight seal.
Non-weathered thresholds have no lip and are completely flush with the floor. As they don’t offer quite the same protection against the elements, they are best used on interior doors or doors in sheltered areas.
Security for peace of mind
Your home isn’t a home if it doesn’t feel secure. That’s why we’ve made sure our bi-fold doors exceed the latest security standards (including PAS 24 and Secured By Design). Employing a unique 8-point locking system, the doors come equipped with:
- Heavy-duty zinc hinges designed to resist attacks from the most determined intruders
- A cylinder lock proven to withstand common housebreaking techniques such as snapping, picking, drilling and bumping
Combine these high-quality features with extremely strong aluminium frames and you have a door system where security is second to none.
Inspired by colour
You might be perfectly satisfied with a contemporary black, white or grey door. Alternatively, your taste might be much more adventurous. With the Origin Bi-Fold Door, you have the choice of over 150 RAL shades, and a range of dual-colour options and woodgrain finishes.
So whether you're looking for a bright primary shade, a candy-coloured pastel or a deep, earthy tone, Origin's extensive colour palette can't fail to inspire you.

Keeping the family safe
As a family-run business, we understand how important it is to keep everyone safe. That’s why we design our bi-fold doors with features specifically to protect the whole family.
Special finger-safe gaskets stop little fingers from getting trapped when the doors are in use, while magnetic catches hold the doors firmly in place once you’ve folded them back.
And with a threshold carefully designed to remove trip hazards and provide any necessary wheelchair access, you’re able to link seamlessly between the inside and outside of your home.
Doors that glide effortlessly
The secret behind the smooth, fluid motion of the Origin Bi-Fold Door is hidden within its bottom track. A cleverly engineered slimline carriage guides the doors along the track quietly and efficiently, letting you open and close them with ease. It’s quality you can see, feel and admire.
Handled with care
No door is complete without its handle, and the Origin Bi-Fold Door comes with the perfect finishing touch. Made with our usual care and dedication, our handles boast modern, elegant styles while striking the ideal balance between unrivalled strength, sleek design and flawless functionality.Style 253/280

Stay warm in winter, cool in summer
Engineered to stand up to the unstable British climate, the Origin Bi-Fold Door insulates your home all year round, keeping your home bright with natural light, as well as warm in the winter.
The door’s sophisticated weathertight seals ensure any bad weather remains permanently outside, helping to lower your energy bills and allowing you to enjoy every room of your home no matter the season.

Low-maintenance aluminium doors
Bi-fold doors let you enjoy the view and space they create, without the worry of time-consuming or costly maintenance.
Where wooden or uPVC doors might expand and contract in certain weather, the Origin Bi-Fold Door, with its premium-grade aluminium frames, avoids this problem completely. And its impeccable powder-coated finish means there’s no need to touch up fading paintwork or conceal chips and scratches.
Aluminium style and strength
The aluminium that goes into making the Origin Bi-Fold Door is premium-grade, coming from prime billets rather than re-melting scrap. It’s a hugely versatile metal that lets us build all kinds of complex door configurations without compromising on lightness, quality or resilience.
Aluminium’s innate strength means the doors are secure, energy‑efficient and resistant to warping or flexing, even in the worst of weather conditions. We finish the frames with a high-grade powder coating, ensuring a scratch-resistant and completely smooth surface. And slim sightlines make sure you have the best possible view of the world outside.
