Helping you choose between a Schuco and an Origin bifolding door.

Our advice is to visit our showroom, take a look at both products and talk to us about your requirements. We are confident you will be delighted with either an Origin or a Schuco bifolding door. They come with their own aesthetics, technical specifications and colour options.

The great thing is, you will be viewing two of the best bifolding doors you can buy under one roof. There are very few showrooms in the UK that give you the chance to see these two quality doors under one roof.

At Open Living, we have fitted countless Origin and Schuco doors and are best placed to give you the benefit of our expertise and help you choose the best door for you.

For bifolding doors with the longest guarantee, choose Origin.

Our Origin bifolding doors are unusual in being the only bifolds in the UK with a 20-year manufacturers guarantee. If you are looking for the ultimate in peace of mind, Origin doors are hard to beat.

This does not mean that Schuco doors are inferior. We know of Schuco windows and doors that are still in perfect working order 30 years after being fitted. Both Origin and Schuco doors will give you years of enjoyment.

Looking for the slimmest bifolding door? Consider Schuco.

Schuco has for years been one of the thinnest bifolding doors you can buy. With sight lines of only 121mm, few doors are as slim as Schuco. The other benefit of Schuco is that doors can be made up to 3 metres in height. If you are building a new extension and are looking for the big panoramic folding doors, Schuco is worth considering.

We think you will be impressed with the dimensions of both Origin and Schuco doors. The Origin door has a modern yet classic appearance, the Schuco door a flat look. Visit our showroom and take a look at the two together.

Origin is your choice for beautiful woodgrain bifolding doors.

Origin doors come in a range of stunning woodgrain finishes not available elsewhere. These special coatings provide you all the benefits of an aluminium bifold, with the look and feel of real wood.

Whether you choose an Origin or a Schuco bifold, you have our guarantee of a quality product, a professional installation and a new bifolding door that will improve your home. Contact us today for further information.
