The team at Clear View has recently manufactured an unusually large bi-folding door at our based in Meltham Mills. The door has a total length of 7400mm (24ft) and features eight panels.
This is one of the largest (in length) doors we have ever manufactured at Clear View. To put this length into scale, the average sliding door opening is around 2000mm and bi-folding door around 5000m so this is a very large door.
The door will be used in conjunction with a range of other aluminium doors and windows for a large project we are completing within the summer.
Why choose the bi-folding door?
This homeowner chose a bi-folding door for many reasons, with the size of the opening also aiding to their decision. With such a large opening within the house, the bi-folding door will allow the family to use its concertina movement method to fold the door back the whole way and have a very large unrestricted space for movement in and out of the property.
As well as the free movement, the eight panels will also feature large amounts of glass which will help flood the roof with natural light – proven to have many health benefits. This natural light will also help, with the addition of high efficiency glazing which will be installed into the glass, to keep the room at a comfortable condition all year round, helping to sue the sun’s rays to warm the area in the winter and keep it cool in the summer.
