Bi-fold doors are a sought-after form of external door, particularly for rooms that open into a garden or patio. External bifold doors are doors which slide open and fold up together in order to offer space efficiency. They let a lot of light into a room because of the sleek frames, and, because they concertina together, they open lots wider than other doors, letting a lot of air in and creating a seamless transition between internal and external spaces.
External bi-fold doors are very flexible, as they come in a wide range of sizes and different configurations. The smallest bifold doors have two leaves, but they are frequently in three to five panel designs, and several manufacturers produce designs with up to sixteen panels. Typically, using a design with less door leaves will be more affordable, as a lot of the expense of bifold doors is in the frame as opposed to the glass. The configurations of external bi-fold doors vary, for example all of the leaves could slide in one direction, or half in each, depending on your choice and the requirements of the property. Bi fold doors often incorporate a ‘traffic door’ into their design, which is a single panel of the door that opens outwards in the regular way.
External bifold doors will come in three types of material: aluminium, wood or UPVC. Additionally they come in a variety of styles and colours to accommodate any home. They provide increased security as they have very tough double glazing along with multi-point locking systems. External bi fold doors must adhere to building regulations for insulation which specify a U-value for heat loss through the door.
