Open up your home with a bifold door
Why have a wall with one or two traditional windows and a single accessway to your garden, when you can combine the benefits of a large, uninterrupted pane of double-glazed glass with the security and energy efficiency of a modern door? Designed to maximise space and allow an influx of natural light into your home, a bifold door can open up your property by creating a seamless transition between your interior and exterior spaces. Engineered with minimal hardware, a bifold door offers panoramic views of your garden or patio area. They are suitable in both contemporary and traditional homes alike.
What is a bifold door?
Unlike a traditional patio door, bifold doors are designed to fold back on themselves in a zig-zag style. Often likened to a large accordion, a bifold door folds back neatly when open. Each leave stacks atop one another to sit neatly to the side. Bifold doors are carefully engineered together to offer a unique folding system. As a result, a bifold door can maximise natural light and airflow within a property.
Ideal in the summertime, bifold doors can be thrown back in the warmer months to truly open up your home. This fosters a sense of intimacy between your living spaces and your garden or patio. By bringing you and your family closer to nature, bifold doors can have a positive effect on your mental health and wellbeing by allowing plenty of fresh air and sunshine into your home. Homeowners can also easily create the much-revered indoor-outdoor flow within their property. This creates an ideal environment for both large social occasions and smaller, more intimate gatherings.
Are bifold doors energy efficient?
Modern bifold doors offer optimal energy efficiency ratings. They are ideal in the winter when you may be worried about the impact of adverse weather on your home. Manufactured from your choice of uPVC or aluminium, both materials offer premium energy efficiency ratings. These days, modern bifold doors are engineered with durable weatherproof seals, innovative internal beading and double-glazed glass. This means your home will be sealed from the elements for years to come. Perhaps most pertinent, bifold doors allow for an influx of natural light in even the harshest of weather. This is due to the expansive panes of glass.
Are bifold doors secure?
As bifold doors become increasingly popular, many question the security of a bifold door. So, will the installation of bifold doors compromise the security of your property?
Both uPVC and aluminium bifold doors are engineered to a very high standard. As a result, they are incredibly secure and robust. Manufactured with modern multi-lock mechanisms and internal beading, bifold doors are also securely fixed to a durable track. This means unwelcome intruders will be unable to lift your door from its track. In fact, it is impossible to do so without breaking the frame and making a lot of noise. As a result, you can rest assured your bifold door will keep your property safe and secure for decades to come.
How much are bifold doors?
The cost of your bifold doors will come down to the project at hand. This includes the exact specifications of your property. How many leaves you would like to install and your own personal tastes should also be factored in.
