Bi-fold doors are without question the door of choice at the moment, not just with designers but with home owners too.
Why are bi-fold patio doors so popular? Well, it’s simple really: they have many advantages over traditional patio doors. Granted they might cost a bit more, but in the longer term they’ll certainly repay that extra initial expenditure.
Bi-fold doors allow the maximum levels of light to enter buildings, yet offer privacy when necessary.
Because of their solid construction and ease of use, bi-folding sliding doors are ideal for both homes and businesses. If you want to turn the outside space into another usable room, or would like the option of enjoying a greater feeling of light and airiness, then bi-fold patio doors are the obvious choice. However, you could say that that’s just the tip of the iceberg: bi-fold patio doors offer many other benefits too.
Bi-fold patio doors are easily transportable. If you are considering installing a patio door in a property to give access to a rear garden, but have no means of access to this space other than through the property, then you would find it very difficult to install any sort of traditional sliding patio door. There simply wouldn’t be the access. However, because bi-fold patio doors are transportable and foldable, they can be carried through the property to the installation site without any great difficulty.
Bi-fold patio doors improve the look of properties and encourage better access to outside spaces.
We’re in the middle of a recession, and are understandably reluctant to move in search of extra space. Many properties have gardens and outside spaces, but these are not used as often as they should be because access to these spaces is often difficult. Bi-fold doors solve that problem.They make your home much more accessible to the garden, and that could totally change the way you utilise the space. What’s more, they look great too. They’re stylish and can add to the property’s appeal and value.
Bi-folding doors aren’t just for exterior use: they can also be useful inside properties too. Because of their construction, they can either open into to or out of a room, or fold left or right. They are completely flexible. What that means is they will cause very little disturbance to the flow of a home, and will not disrupt or interfere with the natural flow of light.
Ease of use/ maintenance free.
Bi-folding patio doors run on a free-glide system which is practically frictionless due to the use of maintenance-free needle roller bearings. This means that they will remain easy to ease, regardless of how often they are opened and closed.
Bi-fold patio doors come in a wide range of styles and designs, and are available in a variety of different colours and finishes; you can now even get wood-effect finishes. Because of this bi-fold patio doors can blend seamlessly into the design and aesthetic of any home.
Safety and security.
Slim profiles ensure the maximum possible glass area and visibility to the outside when closed, yet are completely weatherproof and also offer excellent thermal efficiency. Despite offering incredibly useful access, bi-fold doors are very secure due to their multi-point locking systems, and consequently are widely used in both domestic and commercial environments.
