Opening up your home to the outdoors is becoming increasingly popular to those looking to close the proximity between their gardens and indoor space. As many of us choose to update and renovate our homes rather than sell up and move, installing glazing and creating a lighter and brighter living space is one way to add value to our homes.

So where should you start? Browsing inspirational case studies online is a great way of getting ideas of what might work in your home, but to really get a feel for the glazing innovations you need to step foot in a showroom and try them out for yourself. Express Bi-folding Doors has some of the most impressive showrooms in the industry having recently opened a Europe-first space.

Inspiring and utterly unique showrooms

Express Bi-folding Doors has four showrooms in the UK, including Leeds, Glasgow, Redhill and Romford. Each has its own unique layout of glazing displays, including full-size show houses and fully dressed room sets to truly inspire your home renovation. You won’t find dull window displays or dimly lit rooms, only bright, beautiful and open-plan spaces.

The company’s flagship Leeds showroom is the largest-of-its-kind in Europe and features three show houses, built especially to demonstrate the best and most innovative glazing Express has to offer. A truly unique destination, everything from roof lanterns to bi-folding doors and bespoke curtain walling is on display, alongside carefully selected industry partners showcasing exterior details such as paving and lawn solutions. Each of Express’ showrooms has been finished with the same attention to detail as the Leeds flagship, making them some of the most impressive showrooms in Scotland and the South East of England.

Industry-leading glazing solutions

Express is the UK’s largest specialist manufacturer and installer of aluminium bi-folding and sliding doors and offers a full end-to-end service, with all glazing innovations manufactured in Yorkshire to strict quality and energy efficiency controls. Express then oversees all aspects of the project, from installation through to aftercare. Some of the company’s most popular glazing products have also recently been awarded police-backed Secured By Design status, adding another level of superiority to the range.

Despite the name, Express expanded its portfolio from bi-folding doors years ago in line with trends and is increasingly the company of choice for bespoke projects, incorporating the best of their aluminium glazing solutions. Their website is now brimming with case studies demonstrating the variety of products they offer – from sliding doors to curtain walling and bespoke glass roof designs, as well as joint projects with sister company Express in the Home.
