In this article, we explain everything about these two products and what to consider.
Information about Schuco and Aluk bifolding doors.
First of all, both bifolding door brands are quality products. They come designed by two big businesses, with Aluk being a UK business and Schuco originating in Germany. We buy these doors only through approved manufacturers, highly regarded for their expertise and quality of manufacturing.
Another useful feature of both Aluk, as well as Schuco bifolds, is their specifications. For instance, aluminium profiles, the paint colour, seals, gaskets, locks and glass all meet strict British and European standards.
As well as this, the security and weather performance of both these doors come independently certified. Therefore, both these door brands offer high security as well as being fit for purpose as exterior quality doors for your home.
So when choosing which is a better door, there is little to choose between Aluk or Schuco.
