Frequently Asked Questions about Buying Bifolding Doors

Are bifold doors a good idea?

Bifold doors are one of the best doors you can buy. They’re better than a sliding door because fully folded, they open up your entire door opening. Designed with a traffic or access door, they give you the same easy and quick access as a regular hinged door without having to fold the panels back. There’s no better door for an open aspect feel, open or closed.

How do I choose a bifold door?

A reliable and quality bifold doesn’t have to be expensive. Look for insulated aluminium frames and glass, a professionally applied range of colours, slim sightlines, a choice of standard or flush thresholds, high quality handles, locks and components, security, energy efficiency and good weather protection.

How secure are bifold doors?

Very secure. Modern aluminium bifold doors come with high quality locks, securing your doors across several points and also having a high-security key cylinder. The glass is fixed from inside, meaning it can’t be removed from outside and they come as standard with safety glass. Bifold doors are tested to the latest security standards with an overall design that makes them safe and secure when locked.

Are aluminium or PVCu bifold doors better?

Aluminium remains the best material for bifold doors. Aluminium is always significantly slimmer than PVCu giving you less bulky-looking doors, more glass and reduced visible aluminium. Aluminium is also substantially stronger and is regarded as more reliable than PVCu, especially for bifolds on sunny elevations. Aluminium makes your doors more reliable, especially on warmer days where PVCu expands more and can make our doors hard to move.

Where can you have bifold doors?

Because a bifold door starts at two panels, going up to ten or more, they’re perfect for existing or new openings of all sizes. A bifold with a low or flush threshold also makes an excellent room divider and is even better at separating a conservatory from the main room. You can have bifolds that open in or out and folding in one or both directions.

What are the problems with bifold doors?

Well-made and properly installed, there are no problems with bifold doors. The only consideration with a bifold is that fully folded the stacked panels do take up space on your patio or inside your room. When closed the more panels you have, the more vertical mullions you see, but choosing a slimline bifold reduces the sightlines, giving you a sleeker bifold, more glass, light and better views.
