Bi-Folding Doors are a little similar to Sliding Doors in that they are fitted onto a roller to achieve a sliding effect. Where they are different comes from the fact that, unlike Sliding Doors which move along in a conventional direction, Bi-Folding Doors have an inverted opening, meaning that they open together but they do so inwards and they close outwards, as opposed to moving along a straight line or being pulled backwards or forwards at a 90-degree angle.
These doors are most commonly associated with garden patios and back-doors of homes, though they can be applied anywhere that the proprietor of a building is looking to achieve a unique effect different to any other doors within the complex.
Aluminium is the best material for Bi-Folding Doors because it is light and intricately designed, which matches the careful, slow nature of the Bi-Folding Doors themselves. It also links into these doors being seen at the rear of a building because the aluminium material is recyclable, meaning it will protect the doors from adverse weather conditions and general deterioration.
It achieves a cool effect and makes a home or an office garden stand out from others in the area. What’s more, they do not have to be opened completely wide; there is the option to be flexible with how far you open and close them, which helps during particularly hot days where you want to bring in some warmth, but not to a huge degree. Add to that the increased presence of glass panels which allow plenty of sunlight to shine through even when the doors are closed, and you have the best option when it comes to Bi-Folding Doors that are effective and aesthetically impactful.
