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.

in this architects practice, our all glass doors help create privacy whilst retaining an open plan feel.

Open plan working is very much the way modern businesses lay out their offices. However for meeting rooms, interview rooms or any other kind of private environment needed in the workspace, glass doors are ideal.

Our all glass doors are a better alternative to fixed glass office partitions or solid doors and can provide a wow factor to your office building impressing your customers and suppliers alike.

Let Frameless Glass Curtains provide the solution for you.

Our unique range of sliding and folding doors are tried and tested and successfully used in many domestic and commercial environments. Even global brands such as Manchester United have benefitted from the maximum light and space provided by our doors.

Great post installation service

In addition to the quality of the product – which is stunning, and head an shoulders above anything else on the market – the ongoing support and maintenance is impressive.

Grand Designs!

We are both delighted with the FGC product and have no issues with any future viewings. From our perspective the “outside has truly come inside”, we use the decking on a daily basis as the FGC curtains have transformed the house which I think adds a significant value to the property. The only trouble now

New doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space

When it has been sunny we have made full use of the new doors and they have transformed our relationship with the outdoor space. The design and colour of the doors has modernised the look of the back of the house especially now we do not have lashings of uPVC everywhere. We were very happy

Happy with all your support

The bottom line, I am happy with all your support to get me the financial support for this project.  Without your help the project would not have been realised.

We have had these doors for several months now and are very pleased with them. Our initial contact with the company was very positive, the structure and operation of the doors clearly explained. The installation was carried out very efficiently with no disruption and the installers were friendly, their work clean and tidy. Our friends

I had an installation of 4 doors in December 2018. During the cold snap in January this year the outside glass handle cracked.

Delighted

Delighted with final result and extremely pleased that I decided on these ‘frameless glass doors’ over conventional bifolds. The company had no end of patience with any pre-order questions that I raised and the factory visit and visit to view an existing installation were very informative and reassuring. The team that fitted were professional, attentive

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
