Bi-Folding Doors and Patio Doors

Based in Preston, we supply and install bi-folding doors throughout Lancashire. Capable of wider openings than conventional doors, they are an excellent choice for giving access to patios and gardens. The terms “bi-folding doors” and “bi-fold doors” can be used interchangeably.

What are Bi-folding doors ?

Bi-folding doors make a brilliant alternative to traditional French doors or sliding doors. They’re becoming increasingly popular thanks to their chic style and space-saving functionality. However, they are still widely misunderstood so, here, we’ll explain their design and benefits.

How do Bi-fold Doors Work?

Essentially, bi-fold doors are made up of multiple leaves which fold back on themselves with a sort of ‘concertina’ effect. The doors are fitted to runners and, when opened, they slide and fold at the same time. This means that they don’t need as much space to swing open like normal hinged doors. It also means that they can create wider openings than, say, traditional single doors or sliding doors.

Exceptional Bi-Folding Doors

Depending on the configuration chosen, bifold doors can be installed with what is known as a “traffic” door. This is a conventional door built into the bifold system, which sits on a normal hinge and has a standard lever handle. This allows for quick and easy access through the entranceway when you don’t want to fold and slide open every leaf in the bifold. This is particularly useful for busy entranceways which you tend to use regularly.
