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.

Mr C R

How did we advise you on first contact? I was constructing a new extension and FGC were very helpful and understanding of the nature of the project. Updates to the original design (like addition of an extra door) were accomodated easily and efficiently Installation – were the installers polite and did they clean and tidy All polite and as clean as necessary, although given the site was a work in progress with other builders / materials around there was limited tidying required. Having said that, subsequent visits to rememdy teething issues have been also very efficient and tidy. Are you pleased with our frameless glass curtains? Yes and they are hugely popular with friends / guests when visiting. Would you recommend us to other people? Yes – and I have done so on several occasions already Do you have any advice for us? Keep up the good work … and keep innovating. 20150113

A Unique and Stylish System

There is no comparison between the usual bifold door products and the products provided by FGC. We visited FGC to see the manufacturing process and view their unique system. We were hooked, after a simple ordering process and site visit our 2 sets of replacement doors were fitted quickly and in a very professional manner.

All in all a very good experience with FGC

Thanks you for everything FGC did on this project for us.  We found you from an on-line search which doesn’t always identify helpful or committed suppliers, especially where the requirement is small or simple as this one was..  FGC were both helpful and committed.  Thank you especially for progressing things much quicker that the weeks
