Larger and better views with frameless bifolding doors

If you are embarking on building a new extension for the home, you may be looking at a design that incorporates large glass panels to try and gain the maximum amount of glass area.

A large window is perfectly possible with today’s modern window materials, design and technology.  But if you’re looking for large bifolding doors what options are open to you?

Advantages of wide and tall bifolding doors.

Having large doors designed into your new extension offers real design possibilities. You can create that real “Grand Designs” type extension that you’ll often see on television programmes where large glass walls are created.

If you are lucky enough to live in a property that enjoys great view of the city, the countryside or even the sea, making your doors wide and tall simply makes your view much better.  Our image here is typical of a modern glazed extension or home where large glass panels are popular.

However, what you may not know is that many normal bifolding doors can’t go as wide or as tall as you wish.

Comparing sizes of frameless doors and conventional doors.

In doing your research, you’ll see some bifolding door manufacturers publicising their maximum sizes.  For  many of the most popular systems, the maximum heights are typically no more than 2400mm.  Some bifold doors can go up to 270mm high, whilst a few of the high end products specified by architects can go up to 3metres in height.

When it comes to door widths, there are several things to consider.  It is true that the wider the panel the better the overall view.  However with any folding door the wider the door panel the more room it will take up when open and folded back. If your doors open inwards you many want to keep your door panels as narrow as possible.  If your doors open out some homes with smaller gardens many also want to take into account how wide each door panel is.

However, if you are not restricted on space and are looking for wide door panels it’s important again to look at the product offerings from the well known bifolding door brands.  In many cases you’ll find they can only be made up to 1000mm wide or rarely 1200mm wide.

Do your research carefully and you’ll often see that whilst a folding door may state a maximum width of say 1200mm and a maximum height of 3000mm often these maximum sizes can’t be used to create a door panel of 1200 x 3000mm.  You’ll very often find that a wide door needs to be shorter than the maximum and a tall door needs to be narrower than the maximum.

Frameless Bifolding doors can be made wider and taller than conventional doors.

Minor Problem Addressed
