What Are Bifold Doors?

Bifold door installations have been growing in popularity over recent years. These folding doors have a unique function and can be tailor made to suit your specifications. Unlike French doors that open out on hinges, or patio doors that slide on rails, bifold doors open by folding neatly to the side. This concertina style opening allows the large glazed doors to create unobstructed garden access and panoramic views when fully opened.

How to Find the Perfect Fit – Measuring for Bifold Doors

A contemporary bifold door installation can enhance your home’s appearance and overall thermal performance. Energy efficient bifold doors are built with weather proofing gaskets, thermally broken frames, secure locking systems and high spec glazing. All of these modern features enhance the performance of the bifold door profile but will not deliver to their full potential if the door is the wrong size.

A poorly fitted bifold door can allow cold draughts to enter your home and offer poor levels of heat retention. Alongside inferior thermal performance, a poor fit can also jeopardise the security of your doors and put your property at risk of intrusion.

To avoid security and performance issues in the future, it is important that you measure your space correctly and invest in a professional bifold door installation.

Here is a quick guide to measuring up for a bifold door installation:

• Measure the door opening width (aperture). Take a measurement for the top, middle and bottom and then use the smallest measurement for your door width.

• Measure the door height on the right, left and in the middle of your chosen space. Again, use the smallest measurement as your door height.

• It is also important to consider the depth of the aperture, this will help you to determine the thickness and number of glazing panels needed. Once you have measured up your available space, you can start to think about your door’s configuration.
