How do Bifold Doors Work

Bifold doors are a beautiful addition to any home and are wonderfully functional. Whether you want to add more space to your home, create more fluidity between rooms, or simply enjoy more natural light, bifold doors are the choice for you.


How Do Bifold Doors Work?

They work on a simple tacking system. They run along panels that are connected on a train, simply gliding along the tracking systems. They also fold in on themselves to save space. Made from a series of glass panels, folding doors fold up against the wall. Working just like a concertina, these doors save significant amounts of space. So, whether you want to save a small amount of large amount of space, these doors provide the solution. What’s more, bifold doors are exceptionally easy to move. So, the ‘shuddering’ that occurred when pushing open sliding doors or French Doors will be in the past.

Bifold doors are commonly available in pairs and are able to be opened either inwards or outwards. The ease of movement and flexibility provided is just one of the reasons why they are so popular.

Where Can Bifold Doors be Installed?

One of the many benefits of folding doors is that they can be installed inside in your interior spaces or outside. You can install them as a way to break up a large room, without losing that sense of space. Alternatively, you can install them as a divider between your house and the garden outside. Whatever you decide, bi folding doors are one of the most flexible and functional doors on the market.

External Bifold Doors and Their Uses

Bifold doors that are installed on the outside of your property help you make the most of the view. The large glass panels let natural light stream into your home or conservatory every day, creating a feeling of openness. What’s more, folding doors that open out onto your garden help bring a little of the outdoors in. So, even when the weather’s bad you can enjoy your garden.

If you’re worried about the security of external bifold doors, don’t be. When it comes to security, our team prioritise utmost security. With multiple locking points across the sliding track and double or even triple glazing, you can enjoy significantly improved home security.

Internal bifold doors are a popular choice for many people. They take up very little space when they are open, making them the perfect solution for small spaces. Because folding doors fold back on themselves, they provide full functionality and completely open up your space.
