As bifolding door experts, we see many properties and meet a lot of different customers looking for the ideal bifolding door.
A new folding door will be marketed as a product that will give you lots of space and light, bring the outside in and give you a great way to open up the back of your home.
Some of the most important features of a bifolding door are flexible design, a professional installation and a door that will look good and work reliably for many years to come. Our frameless bifolding doors do all this and more.
How wide should each folding door panel be?
One of the most common questions customers ask us is how wide each door panel can be made. These clients have looked at conventionally framed aluminium bifolding doors marketed as being available with wide individual door panels over 1metre wide.
Many aluminium door systems can easily be made in these larger sizes. However, our clients looking for larger bifolding door panel are dissuaded from having them. Their window company or their builder will often tell them that:
– Wider aluminium bifolding doors are prone to dropping
– Large door panels will be too cumbersome to use.
– Large bifolding door panels will project too far into the inside or outside space when folded open.
Clients are often advised to add another door panel and make each door size smaller. This adds another one or two visible mullions and also makes the glass sizes smaller too.
Frameless bifolding doors give wide folding door panels with ease.
Our frameless glass doors can easily accommodate door panels of over 1m wide and up to 3metres in height. There is no risk of dropping doors or heavy doors with our frameless glass curtains.
The innovative gearing, sliding mechanisms and advanced materials we use mean we have the ideal door for anyone wanting large glass panels, the biggest possible glass panes and an uninterrupted view.
Moreover, because our doors have no visible mullion, no matter how many door panels you have, from two right up to 8 or more, all you see is glass and a beautiful view.
Better still, our doors are less than half the size of a standard bifold when folded back meaning they will not take up valuable space and make the most of your garden and your room. Four panels when folded back take up only 180mm.
