Conservatory Land Makes Bi-Fold Doors in Conservatories a Success

MANSFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) - Bi-fold doors, also known as folding or concertina doors, provide complete open access up to six metres wide and started becoming more popular in 2008 when many consumers were installing them in their homes.

Later that year, DIY conservatory retailer ConservatoryLand, commenced manufacture and introduced to their customers the option of upgrading their DIY conservatories with bi-fold doors to open up their house to their conservatory or their conservatory to their garden.

The company marketed their new product by installing bi-fold doors in their Mansfield showroom, adding them to their website and sending out fliers with their brochures. Since then, sales of bi-fold doors in their conservatories have rapidly increased with one in ten customers now requesting them.

When installed in a brick built property, the doors can be manufactured up to six metres wide and up to four metres wide when installed in conservatories. This is achieved with the company's new bi-fold door aluminium bolster system to provide the required support.

David Bingham, Director of the company comments "We are delighted with response to our marketing campaign and started receiving orders within days of introduction. Our bi-fold doors are a lovely product which provide a huge opening to the home or conservatory compared to that of traditional patio or French doors."

Traditionally, bi-fold doors have been manufactured from timber or aluminium and have been common place in continental countries for many years, particularly in commercial public premises such as bars and restaurants.

David Bingham continues "With more consumers looking for different ways of enhancing their homes and with new technology now available to manufacture bi-fold doors in maintenance free PVCu, popularity in the UK residential market continues to increase and is expected to do so over the coming years.
