How Secure Are Bifold Doors?
Whatever the era or aesthetics of your property, choosing to install aluminium bifold doors in your home creates a seamless transition between your interior and exterior spaces, as well as offering a full, unobstructed vista of your garden and outside landscaping – but how secure are bifold doors?
As aluminium bifold doors increase in popularity and property owners consider installation for their own project, many question the security of bifolds and whether the door will threaten the safety of their property.
The truth is aluminium is a far stronger and more durable material than traditional timber frames. Maintained correctly, aluminium is resilient to adverse weather conditions and has a lifespan of more than 30 years. Aluminium bifold doors from Majestic Designs are engineered with a high-security multi-point locking system as well as a high-quality aluminium track for smooth operation. With a high rating for energy efficiency, our range of aluminium bifold doors can also save you money on costly utility bills.
Is aluminium a suitable material for my bifold doors?
In recent years advancements in technology means aluminium windows and doors are no longer draughty nor engineered with disagreeable aesthetics unsuitable for residential properties. Sleek and lightweight, slender frames engineered from high-quality aluminium allows for larger panes of glass which in turn maximises the amount of natural light flowing into your interior living spaces.
Will my bifold doors be secure?
Besides the more obvious aesthetic improvements bifold doors can bring to your property, bifold doors are also just as secure as patio doors or French doors. The unfounded theory that bifold doors are easy to break into actually originates from the unfounded security risk posed by conservatories.
Aluminium bifold doors are infinitely more secure. With optimal thermal glazing technology and internal beading, your bifold doors will not only be energy-efficient but incredibly robust and securely fixed to a durable track with a multi-point locking system. Essentially, potential intruders will be unable to lift your bifold door from its frame or break in without causing a lot of noise.
Other benefits of aluminium bifold doors
Aluminium bifold doors can be engineered with up to seven leaves and are fabricated to sit on a durable and smooth track that allows the property owner to draw back the doors and create a wide vista into their exterior space. As a result, during the warmer summer months, bifold doors can be used to create a wide vista for improved ventilation, perfect for large social gatherings. During the chillier months, a bifold door allows maximum natural light on the stormiest of days while also retaining optimal thermal efficiency within your property.
