How to open and close frameless bifolding doors

The design of our frameless system makes our doors one of the easiest types of slide and fold doors to operate. Using the latest bifolding door hardware, designed by us for our doors, they are effortless to use as well as safe.  We explain how to open and close frameless bifolding doors with our short guide.

How to open and close frameless bifolding doors.

how to open and close frameless bifolding doors

Depending upon the configuration, all our frameless door sets consisting of three panels or more are designed with a master locking door and three independent leaves.  The sequence in how to open and close frameless bifolding doors is very simple.

  1. In the locked position rotate the locking handle to unlock the master locking door.
  2. Swing open the master locking door to its fully open position.  This will be either inside or out depending upon the opening action.
  3. Take each intermediate door panel and slide it to its open position until a ‘stop’ is felt.  This door can then be swung open.
  4. Repeat for each additional intermediate leaf.
  5. The door set is now fully open.

To close the doors the opening procedure is simply reversed.

  1.  Swing to the closed position each intermediate leaf in turn.
  2. Slide each leaf to its closed position.
  3. Finally, swing closed the master locking door.
  4. Rotate the handle to lock and engage the master and intermediate door leaves.

Other features of frameless slide and fold doors.

Our frameless slide and fold doors can also offer enhanced ventilation for your home, over and above conventional aluminium bifolding doors or concertina doors.

Each panel opens independently meaning they can be left in the partial opening position giving excellent airflow into a room. All you need to do is slide each panel to anywhere along the frame and track and leave the door panel in that position.  You can create as much or as little ventilation as you like depending upon the outside temperature or how much airflow you want to let into your room.

As you can see from our video, how to open and close frameless bifolding doors is child’s play.  Contact us for a free demonstration and to find out what makes our bespoke frameless doors unique.

It’s nearly a year since you installed our glass curtains. They have been really great, exceeding our expectations, particularly during the winter months when they were absolutely draught free. When they are fully open you really feel that the lounge is part of the garden, it all becomes one space. Many thanks, they were one

Mr & Mrs F @ lower road one house Stowmarket

From the time of our first visit to your premises we felt comfortable with your product. It was a product just as we had hoped and envisaged for our new kitchen extension – double glazed, frameless glass doors to cover a 7.310 meter opening ! Until then we were not sure if it was possible.

Very Happy with our doors

Thank you again for the doors, we’re very happy with them and, once the renderer has finished (hopefully tomorrow), we’re really looking forward to removing the plastic protection so we can see through them properly. Mr B, Brighton

From the moment I contacted FGC their help and attention to detail was exemplary. I had particular requirements which meant that each of the glass doors where different sizes. FGC decided to install in two visits rather than one at no extra cost to ensure that they achieved what I wanted We are extremely pleased
