5 Benefits when you buy Dutemann sliding or bifolding doors.


All modern sliding and folding doors available on the market are fit-for-purpose products, and in reality, there is no ‘bad’ door on the market. In our view, Dutemann doors are more exclusive compared to even the best brands like Origin, Reynaers or Schuco and significantly more exclusive than the big brands like AluK or Smart Systems that are available even in trade counters and builders merchants.

So if you are looking for a premium bifolding or sliding door that is just that little bit different, come into our showroom and look at Dutemann.

Only Dutemann makes their doors.

Many different manufacturers all over the UK make even the top brands such as Schuco or Reynaers. While this gives door companies many different suppliers to buy from, many customers like the comfort of knowing who makes their doors. An exclusive manufacturer brings one significant benefit and that is consistent quality.

Just like our Origin doors, Dutemann sliding and folding doors are only made in one factory. The benefit of this is consistent quality every single time. Something that can’t be guaranteed when many different people make any product.

Designer doors built to last.

When you are spending good money on improving your home, you want your doors to stand the test of time. Many ‘standard’ doors use basic hardware and components found in many other products.

All Dutemänn doors are made in one factory under controlled conditions to ensure every door is made to the highest possible standard. Dutemann doors are well-known for their value-for-money, reliability and ease of use. These elegant doors come as standard with the best quality hardware and equipment.

Re-engineered, slimmer and better doors for your home.

Dutemann doors are based on world-class systems that the company re-engineers to make them even better and perfect for the demanding British market.

The Dutemann Glide-S sliding door as one example can comfortably span an aperture of 6.7m wide by 3.2m in height in just two sliding panels. Glide-S also has a slimline 47mm mullion.

The Dutemann FD85 bifolding door is the other as another example, is in the top five amongst the slimmest bifolding doors on the market. Its door mullions are only 105mm. As well as being remarkably thin, it can accommodate three sliding panels across a 4-metre door aperture where most other bifolding doors need four panels. For you, this means bigger glass, more light, better views and less visible door mullions.

Dutemann Doors give you everything you want from a quality door.

Aside from wanting a good looking bifolding or sliding door, most of our customers looking for new patio or entrance doors also want maximum security and excellent energy efficiency.

The FD85 bifolding door has a the Quad-bolt™ locking system making it meet the latest security standards as well as the latest Part Q Building Regulations for new build dwellings. It also has U-Values as low as 1.5Wm2K using only standard glass units. The Glide-S sliding door also has impressive energy saving credentials.
