Different uses for Glass Bifolding Doors

Many homeowners are choosing bifolding doors for their home improvement projects did you also know that bifolding doors actually have several uses in other buildings as well?

But what other uses for glass bifolding doors are there?

We already know that folding doors are excellent for connecting the inside of your property to your garden.

Bifolding doors for Flats and Apartments

With many modern apartments now featuring balconies, bifolding doors are ideal here. Compared to French doors, bifolds actually take up less space.

Even if you have a two pane bifolding door, the folding nature of this product ensures you are not left with leaves that have to stay open in a virtual 90 degree position like french doors.

Bifolding doors can also be made larger than typical french doors used in flats. This means there is no need for sidelights or stoplights often found with these products. The concertina effect of how bifolding doors open can help make the most of limited space.

Bifolding doors as room dividers

Did you know that slim doors with minimal framing are ideal as a glass room divider?

Studios are an excellent example of small spaces where glass doors can provide solutions. Studios can be separated with a bifolding door providing that much needed separate room but without losing out on light and space as you would with a dividing wall or partition.

Bifolding doors in Restaurants and Bars.

With town centres undergoing significant transformation in recent years you will not have failed to notice the increase in coffee shops, bars or restaurants with dedicated outside space.

Bifolding doors are now used more and more in commercial units and shops. For any business that serves food or drink, bifolding doors make the premises inviting and attractive with the al fresco feel.

During the winter months, glazed doors still provide an open appearance but it it in the summer that they really come into their own opening up an entire frontage and making any food or drink business appear busy, welcoming and inviting.

Bifolding doors can give you an extra room.

Our frameless glass doors are excellent if you have large rooms or an open space that you wish to divide. Perhaps you are looking to create a work space, a playroom for the children or any other kind of room.

Seek the right advice from a bifolding door professional and you can create that extra room whilst still enjoying maximum light and making the most of your available space.

Bifolding doors in Offices.

Replacement of Timber Bi Fold Doors with Frameless Curtains

When we purchased our house, it had two sets of timber bi fold doors, each spanning an opening of approx. 5m. These caused us a lot of problems with warping through the seasons, and the ration of timber to glass limited the light into the rooms.
We therefore replaced them with the frameless curtain
