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.

FGC installed a two-panel frameless glass door at our property yesterday. Wow!! the installation is exactly as discussed, and was carried out by two of FGC's team members who were so professional and courteous. They were excellent, and we have no hesitation in recommending FGC and their team to anyone considering such an installation.We are delighted with the installation, and very pleased we chose FGC.Well done FGC!!

We purchased a beautiful Origin sliding door and side window from FGC. FGC installed the sliding door and window on time, however the sliding door did not fit correctly. Issues can happen. FGC made the process of re-surveying and re-installation very simple. FGC is a very pleasant and professional company to deal with. We are very happy with their service and would strongly recommend them.

Excellent planning and product advice. All the staff were polite courteous and friendly.On the day of the installation, the team arrived bang on time -we live in Wales so a long drive from Kent! They had the job done by lunchtime (fitting a sliding patio door) and I have to say that on first impression of the unit, it looks and feels like solid quality.

We had a 5m stretch of these wonderful doors installed several years ago and have been very happy with the uninterrupted view of the garden that they allow from the living room. They are admired by every tradesman who sees them. A minor problem we experienced with water ingress last year was promptly and effectively resolved, and the doors were serviced for free at the same time.

What our customers say

Our Frameless Glass walls

Putting a frameless glass walls between our South facing lounge and dining room conservatories was one of the best things we have ever done in our house. When shut, they keep out the cold in winter and, most importantly, the heat on very hot summer days. When open during sunny winter days, the heat warms

Great product with amazing after sales service

All of our dealings with FGC have been great. They are professional, friendly and accommodating. Our glass curtain is wonderful and we love it even more than we thought we would. The few little settling in issues we’ve had have been dealt with so quickly and their technical team are incredibly easy to deal with.
