When to Use Sliding Doors

Clear View Bi-Folding doors supply a complete range of aluminium framed windows and doors. This means that we supply a wide range of products, from windows to roof lanterns. We also supply sliding doors, but when should you go with sliding doors, over their bi-folding cousins?

As a quick run-down, sliding doors have been described as ‘a sliding glass wall’. Rather than folding up like a bi-fold door, the two or three panels slide behind one another. Due to this opening mechanism you can have huge panes of glass, which offer a more uninterrupted view when the doors are closed.

In the past Clear View have built sliding doors with widths in excess of 18 feet. But, even though some of these panes of glass can weigh more than 180kg, thanks to the smooth, silent glide mechanism they can often be pushed open with one finger.

So why chose sliding doors?

The main advantage of sliding and bi-folding doors is their ability to lower the barrier between the outdoors and in. Due to their opening mechanism, bi-folding doors can open up to 90% of the aperture. But to do so they need to have a lot of ‘folds’ and at each of these folds the glass is interrupted.

In contrast, though you won’t be able to open the door as wide as you can with bi-folding doors, you can enjoy a much greater uninterrupted view when they are closed.

And this is the crux of the issue. depending the geography and layout of your home you may plan on having your doors open a lot of the time, in which case bi-folding doors will be better suited to your needs. But, if you are likely to have them closed more often than not, then sliding doors are much better solution for your needs.

If you are still unsure about which door would better serve your needs give out in-house design team a call on 08001357167 and we’d be more than happy to talk with you.
