Compact and aesthetically pleasing profile
Over the years bi-folding doors have become a lot slimmer and less conspicuous. Thanks to innovation in the materials used, the frames today are smaller, yet still very strong.And because the doors fold, they take a lot less space when opened.
This allows them to open up an entire wall, which isn’t really possible with sliding patio doors. The doors neatly fold away to the edge of the frame. Your home will benefit from maximum visibility and unmatched convenient garden access.
Allow for more natural light
Due to their slim frame profile, the window surface is a lot larger, meaning they allow far more light into the room than any other window or door. Even when closed there’s little in the way of light, so there isn’t really a compromise. And obviously when opened the space is astounding, with nothing obstructing natural daylight.
Bi-folding doors can be perfect for rooms that don’t get much light, rooms which you’d like to enjoy more time in.
Superior security and safety
Although bi-folds may seem fragile and not very strong due to the fact they literally replace a brick wall with glass, they are very secure. So much so, that bi-folds are widely used by businesses in commercial environments.
The security elements which they have include multi-point locks, robust frames secure with heavy duty hinges, and in some cases, laminated triple glazed glass. The glass is tougher to break and the doors can’t be levered off the hinges. All that makes break ins very difficult and is likely to put off burglars.
