This year, it is predicted that home improvements will be the biggest spend for UK homeowners. After a tough lockdown period, many homeowners are now channelling holiday funds into renovations, and opening up kitchens and living areas to the outside by installing aluminium bifolds is a change that can a real impact.

Aluminium systems house, AluK has seen a huge rise in interest in its bifold door range that began during the 2020 lockdown and has continued into 2021. The company has today unveiled new features on its popular Lumina F82 bifold door, which it believes will enable homeowners not only to enjoy their outside spaces more but will add value to their properties.

AluK Product Manager, Lisa Stephens, explained: “Interest in bifold doors has grown exponentially since the COVID-19 pandemic began. With more time at home, many of us have focussed on making improvements to get more enjoyment from our properties. The timing is ideal for us to showcase our already popular Lumina F82 Bifold Door with a range of new features that make it even more desirable.”

The Luminia F82 still boasts some of the slimmest sightlines on the market, at just 97mm all the way around the frame, which suits the trend for wider expanses of glass to really enjoy the view of outdoor spaces. And the new features stand to set this bifold door apart with fabricators, installers, and homeowners.

“We can now offer a floating corner option for the Luminia F82, which allows corners to be fully opened to take advantage of outside views”, Lisa commented. We also have a midrail option which means you can create single and double doors that compliment the F82 design for a uniform look across your property.”

The Luminia F82 also features a new addition to its handle range with a brushed stainless steel option. The flush pop-up handle in the traffic door is a distinctive feature of the bifold door which adds to the minimalist aesthetic that makes it so popular. AluK is confident that combined with its class-leading weather performance and low U-values (1.3 double and 0.9 triple), that the Luminia F82 is the first choice for decerning homeowners looking to add more light, style and ultimately value to their properties.
