What is a bifold door?

Enhance any home with our bifold doors. At Aluminium Glazing Direct, we supply a variety of aluminium bifold door styles that you can use to transform your customers’ homes. In this article, we will discuss the key features of bifold doors and what they can bring to your customers’ homes.

What Is a Bifold Door?

Bifold doors are known for their folding door, or accordion, configurations. These folding panels open and close to each other, which creates a wide and smooth transition. They are commonly used as external doors leading to the garden, but they can also be internal to transition from room to room.  

Key Benefits:

Below are the many excellent benefits that bifold doors can provide to homeowners.

Maximise Natural Light

One key advantage of bifold doors is their ability to maximise natural light. These large glazing areas allow the optimum opportunity for natural light to hit the room, lighting up every corner. Not only will this enhance the space, but it will also reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day. 

Practical Space-Saving Solution

Not only are these doors aesthetically pleasing, but they also provide multiple practical benefits. One of these is that they can save space. As these bifolding doors fold into each other, you won’t need to worry about needing a room in front or behind the door. That’s why these doors are ideal for those with limited space or if you are working on a traditional home.

Effortless Operation

Bifold doors are straightforward to open when they are installed correctly. Their smooth gliding system allows easy opening and closing, allowing your customers to access their outdoor space effortlessly. 

Enhanced Security

Our bifold doors are made with security in mind. Their robust aluminium frames, paired with multi-point locking systems, provide your customers with the peace of mind that they are secure. Our doors also comply with PAS 24 requirements to show their durability. 

Customisable Options

Design a bifold door that is bespoke to each of your projects. We provide colour-matched hardware so you can blend these doors with your customers’ homes. Choose from our three glazing options: unglazed, standard glass, and solar/ obscure glass to control how the light hits the room.
