What styles of bi-folding doors are available?

As many different styles of bi-folding doors are available it’s important to understand what each is so that you can choose the best possible design for your home or workspace. At Clearview we work with our customers to ensure they pick the most suitable products for their properties. Here are some of bi-folding doors available and the differences between them:

Two pane bi-folding door

This type of door is made up of two panels. They open in a sliding direction of your choice. A two panel bi-folding door is often chosen as an alternative to more traditional patio doors.

Three pane bi-folding door

As the name suggests, this style consists of three panes of glass. Here, two configurations are possible – the first is where all panels open in the same direction. The second is that two panels open one way, with the third being a separate, hinged door. This is what is known as an access leaf and is useful as a regular access door (for example for accessing an external area from inside).

Four pane bi-folding door

This kind of door allows for more potential configurations. As with all other bi-folding doors, it is possible to open it by sliding all panels in one direction. Three sliding in one direction and the fourth acting as an access leaf is also an option. In addition, a hinged configuration can be set whereby two doors open one way and two the other – similar to the way French windows open, but with hinges.

Five and more pane bi-folding door

Bi-folding doors can also be tailor made with five, six or even seven panels. Our technicians are able to discuss possible configurations with you upon request.

Clear View have been designing, manufacturing and installing aluminium bi-folding doors and windows since 2010. We work with both commercial and domestic clients to help them transform their work and living space.

Should you choose a roof lantern or a skylight?

Roof lanterns and skylights can both make fantastic additions to your home. Whilst structurally there are differences between the two, they both enable more light to enter the room they are installed in.
