With so many suppliers and door types out there, picking your new aluminium doors can be a real headache. Should you go for sliding or bi-folding? How many panels, which glass, what colour and do you want hardware? Thankfully, with over 10 year’s experience and an in-house design team, Clear View Bi-Folding Doors are in the ideal situation to help you decide.
1. If your goal is to lower the barrier between the outside and in as much as possible then bi-folding doors could be the right choice for you. Bi-folding doors can be opened up to 90% of the aperture, making the transition between outside and in as low as possible.
2. The layout of your home should be considered when picking your doors. For example, folding doors need space to concertina in order to open properly. If space is an issue then sliding doors may be a better choice.
3. You may have secondary benefits in mind, such as increased thermal efficiency or better protection. So, putting some time into researching which glass you choose, such as thermal or tempered glass, can be massively beneficial and have surprising effects.
4. The finish of the doors is also of vital importance. While it does not affect the doors physically, the appearance can obviously affect the feel of the door, and of the home, as a whole. With an entire range of RAL colouring available, as well as natural aluminium finish, there is bound to be something that helps you find the aesthetic you require.
These are just four things to look out for when considering making a purchase on aluminium doors.
