Unlike other manufacturers who solely use aluminum, vinyl or wood when manufacturing their folding door systems, Win-Dor has combined both vinyl and aluminum to offer our customers something special.
The positives and negatives of an all aluminum folding door system
Aluminum is a great material for bifold door systems. It is strong and rigid. It allows for larger sized installations vs. the traditional vinyl bifolding door system. At the same time, there are several drawbacks to a standard aluminum door system. Just like aluminum windows, it eventually corrodes and breaks down. Secondly, aluminum is great at transferring energy. Because of this, an aluminum bifold system will not be as energy efficient.
