Bi-fold doors are extensively glazed, meaning your home will be filled with lots of space-creating light all year long. This style of door opens wide, too – so you’ll be able to enjoy stunning panoramas of your garden while relaxing indoors.
But how do bifold doors work and why should you choose one for your home?
Bifold Doors Explained
Bifolding doors comprise multiple large glazed panes. These glazed elements are linked together to form a concertina shape – and slide smoothly along a dedicated runner.
Depending on your requirements, the threshold of your concertina door can be flush or lowered. In the latter example, the rail would be nearer the ground or sunken into it.
How do bifold doors work to protect your home? Modern systems usually feature a multi-point lock system that greatly reduces the risk of intruders gaining access to your property.
If you want to make your property even safer, consider fitting a composite door. Featuring a range of high-quality materials compressed together and built around a strong timber core, this style of a front door can withstand heavy impacts better than most other front doors.
Keeping your home energy-efficient is important. Bi-folding doors excel at trapping warm air inside while repelling cold air – resulting in a cosy environment that’s more cost-effective to heat. Overall, you want a system that produces a low U-value. Why not contact us to learn more?
