Origin: Enhancing Homes with Statement Bi-folds

  • 29 Jun 2023

Bi-folding doors can enhance the appeal of kitchens in new homes. Origin explains more in the following article…

Home is where the heart is and for Brits, the heart of a home is the kitchen. Data from Howdens has revealed that 41% of families spend most of their time in the kitchen. Plus, with homeowners increasingly using their kitchens to socialise due to the impact of the cost of living, it’s only logical that prospective buyers want this space to be as attractive and functional as possible.

Bi-folding doors maximise natural light and seamlessly connecting the interior and exterior to establish an ideal setting for entertaining. Origin’s award-winning bi-fold door system is available with two sightlines options – 49mm or 72mm – with a range of styles to complement any property type. The OB-72 offers a more traditional style, whilst the OB-49 offers a sleek, modern aesthetic with slimmer sightlines.


Made completely bespoke in the UK from ultra-strong aluminium profile, these bi-folding doors are recognised for their versatility, strength, and lightweight design. Origin Bi-fold Doors can be tailored to suit any home, with housebuilders able to select from over 150 RAL colours and dual colour options and add glazing bars if preferred.

Built to meet and exceed building standards, the OB-72 and OB-49 optimise thermal efficiency through some of the most sophisticated weather-tight seals and thermal breaks on the market, helping housebuilders meet increasingly stringent targets and reducing energy bills for future homeowners.

Peace of mind

Plus, prospective house buyers can have peace of mind that their property will be safe and sound as Origin Bi-fold Doors offer an unbeatable level of security, with an eight-point locking system and specially designed hinges. Both systems can comply with PAS:24 and achieve the police approved Secured by Design accreditation.

Like all of Origin’s products, the OB-49 and OB-72 systems are built to last and can significantly boost the appeal of new homes to the modern family.
