Bi-folding doors have become increasingly popular and it’s easy to see why. They are versatile, aesthetically pleasing and provide a modern and efficient way to create a seamless divide between external and internal living spaces. The number of panels you choose for your door set will depend on the available space you have in your home and the ways in which you will use them. Our bi-folding door systems can be effortlessly swept aside in seconds enabling any room to feel instantly connected to the great outdoors or to simply extend the space in use.
Folding doors slide in pairs so when you have an odd number of panels one of them can operate independently as a traffic or access door. If your door is a main exit point for your property then it is advised to include an access leaf in your configuration for easy access. Like a traditional door, you can access outside without needing to fold every panel back.
There are different configurations available when including a traffic door, depending on whether you have an odd or even number of panels. With an odd number, you can choose to have all panels sliding one way with a traffic door hinged at the end. However this design wouldn’t work with an even number of panes and so you would need to split them so that an odd number of panels open in each direction. So your traffic door would open one direction and the remaining panels would open the other way.
Our wooden bi-folding doors can be designed to create either a traditional or modern finish depending on the style of your home or extension. They are also suitable for those adhering to specific guidelines given for period properties.
We use the highest quality sliding door gear when hanging the doors, making them exceptionally durable and robust, ensuring they retain their quality for years to come. Please contact us to see if we can help provide a suitable bi-folding door set for your project.
