When selecting a Bi Fold Door you must consider how you want to design (configure) your doors to suit not only your home but the new opening and what you want to achieve (the smooth transition from the inside to your outdoor entertainment area) as an example. Aluminium Bifold doors can have an active door which is a door that is opened and closed easily without having to open two or three sections for access. This door can be positioned in the middle or at one end depending on how many doors you have but we can help guide you in this process and see what is best suited for your home. Your Bifold can also have an even number of panels folding away in the one corner.
With bifold doors you have many different configurations and here are just a few:
(1 ) Your doors can all open to the left, stacking to the end.
2. They can open to the right, stacking to the end.
3. The doors can even open from the middle, allowing half to open to the right and half to the left.
(4) Your doors can open in or out.
(5) The doors can be made in certain widths up to 1000mm wide which may vary to suit the look or use you would like to achieve.
Please see our gallery for just a couple of options you could have in your home…..
Bi Fold Door widths can impact on space when opening in and or out into your entertainment area. Some people reduce the size of each door panel to combat this. There are advantages and down sides to both options. If you reduce the panels to much you reduce the size of visible glass making it look too busy, but you generally can fit it into any space.
