Steel Framed Bi Fold Doors?

Having work done on our kitchen and dining room which will involve installign two sets of doors leading out onto the garden. Bi fold doors seem to be the best option, but i've been wondering about the possibility of looking at steel framed doors (in a kind of french patio door style, with the horizontal transoms/frames - as in the photo i've attached). Have seen several on Pinterest but haven't managed to identify any UK based companies that might do similar to guage whether or not they might be in our price bracket.

I suspect they are going to be a whack more than the normal wood/upvc/aluminium types - but if anyone has had these installed and can tell me otherwise that would be great! Thanks.

Er... pass - but it's only when I've googled steel frames that this style has come up. I've not seen any aluminium framed doors that have such slimline frames - i'm happy to be corrected though!

Following. Love these. My pinterest boards are full of them. Have a feeling they are loadsamoney.

You could try Ideal Combi - they have a new range of aluminium frames which are pretty slimline www.idealcombi.com/DOMESTIC/PRODUCTS/Product_Series/Futurai.aspx.

I think they're called crittall doors, if that helps with googling

Megabucks, I priced up something similar and the quote I got back was 11k shock

They were on Grand Designs this week. They said it was a company in Bognor Regis if that helps?
