Bi-fold doors are unquestionably the product of choice at the moment.
You only have to look around you to see that. Why are bi-folding patio doors the popular choice with businesses, designers and homeowners? Well, it’s simple. Bi-folding patio doors offer all the benefits of traditional patio doors, but with added advantages.
Bi-fold doors allow the maximum levels of light to enter buildings, yet still can offer the required levels of privacy.
Bi-folding sliding doors are ideal for both homes and businesses because of their solid construction and ease of use. They can also turn any outside space into another usable room. For any home or business wanting to enjoy a greater feeling of light and airiness, then bi-fold patio doors are the obvious choice. If those benefits aren’t enough to win you over, then consider the following compelling evidence, and we think you might just change your mind.
Ease of installation.
Bi-fold patio doors can be transported easily and safely. Why is this important? Well, if you wanted to install a patio door which gives access to a rear garden, but realise that the only access to this space is through the property itself, then you wouldn’t be able to use a traditional sliding patio door. 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 don’t just improve the look of properties: they encourage better access to outside spaces.
Many properties have gardens and outside spaces, but they are often underused because access to these spaces is restricted or difficult. Bi-fold doors solve that problem. They make your home much more accessible to the garden, and can totally transform the way you utilise the space. What’s more, they look the part too. They’re stylish and can enhance the property’s appeal and value.
Flexibility and practicality.
Bi-folding doors aren’t just intended for exterior use alone: they can also be incorporated inside properties too. Because of the way they are constructed, bi-folding patio doors can open into to or out of a room, or fold left or right. This practicality and added flexibility means that they will cause very little disturbance to the flow of a home, and won’t disrupt or interfere with the natural flow of light.
Easy to use and maintenance free.
Bi-folding patio doors run on a free-glide system which is practically frictionless because of the use of maintenance-free needle roller bearings. This efficient functionality will not deteriorate no matter how often they are opened and closed.
Style and design.
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 even get wood-effect finishes which are ideal for more traditionally constructed buildings. Because of this wide choice and variety, bi-fold patio doors can blend seamlessly into the design and aesthetic of any home.
Safety and security.
A bi-fold patio door’s slim profiles deliver the maximum possible glass area and visibility to the outside when closed; yet they remain completely weatherproof and offer excellent thermal efficiency. Despite the ease of access, bi-fold doors are very secure due to their multi-point locking systems. That’s what makes them ideally suited to both domestic and commercial environments.
