The benefits of Bi-Folding Doors

Bi-folding doors have several sections that fold in pairs and can fold in or out to remove a partition and open up a space in both interior and exterior applications. They offer a remarkable level of flexibility and are very easy to operate. Bi-folding doors have seen a significant increase in popularity over the last decade due to their continued presence on TV on programs like Grand Designs on Channel 4, and rightly so, because they are simply perfect for any garden room.

So why are bi-folding doors so good for use with garden rooms?


When used on exterior applications, bi-folding doors must adhere to British regulations with regard to safety, being made of strengthened or laminated glass. They must also adhere to environmental regulations and be double-glazed in order to provide the necessary degree of thermal insulation, reducing heat loss in winter and exposure to too much heat in summer, making them perfect for use all year round, with little or no impact on energy bills.

The glazing itself should be made of toughened or laminated glass for safety reasons. External bi-folding doors must also be able to endure a variety of weather and as such are independently tested by manufacturers for resistance to penetration from air and water.

Better strength, looks, & more natural light

In terms of structure, bi-folding doors are commonly made from timber and PVCu, but we believe that aluminium is the best choice of any of these, because it is strong and lightweight, meaning that it is able to support larger glass panels and allow for thinner frames, which in turn has the effect of letting in more natural light.

Aluminium bi-fold doors come in an extensive range of colours and will keep their colour for longer than PVCu, for example. This is great news because as the presenters of Grand Designs and numerous other home improvement shows will tell you, the first rule of building a garden room is that it complements the rest of the house.
