Whether fitted inside as a room divider or outside to connect indoors and out, new bi fold doors make your home feel bigger. They also integrate your private space with the outdoors, letting in natural light and gentle cooling breezes.
To keep your new bi fold doors looking and working their best, you’ll need to regularly lubricate the hinges. We recommend using a light oil like WD-40.
Modern bi fold doors are designed with beauty in mind. Their clean lines and smooth operation make them a beautiful feature in any home.
When open, they create an expansive space that easily connects interior and exterior spaces. In addition, they allow maximum sunlight into your home. This natural light not only makes rooms look bigger, it also enhances your wellbeing.
The patented New Wave Door panels interlock to create an airtight seal when shut, which helps keep warm air in during winter and cool air out in summer. This can significantly reduce energy bills and improve the comfort of your home.
Bifold doors come with multi point locking systems to ensure the safety of your home. They also offer a number of other security benefits such as low aluminium thresholds that help prevent trips and falls, especially for elderly residents.
Childproof locks can be slipped on to the locking system, which is a great way to keep small fingers from becoming trapped and injured in the frame. This is particularly helpful for households with young children.
Several bifold door providers now offer anti-pick cylinders that are designed to make it incredibly difficult for burglars to drill out the cylinder in the lock and gain entry into your home. This is a particularly important feature to consider when choosing your bi fold doors. As well as boosting your home’s security, these cylinders also add an extra level of weather protection, keeping cold air out and warm air in throughout the year.
With their large glass panes that slide open, bi fold doors help to maximise light into your home. This doesn’t just increase the sense of space but can also improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Whether you’re throwing your dinner guests into a fit of bi-fold envy or simply enjoying the view from inside, these doors look ultra-modern and can transform your property with a sleek design.
When it comes to styling around your new bi-folds, consider a neutral colour scheme that doesn’t detract from the natural lighting. Remember, your bi-fold doors are going to be the main feature of your room, so anything too over-busy will draw attention away from them.
As well as offering the option of opening up a room and connecting spaces, bi fold doors allow for an optimal flow of natural light. This allows for an abundance of beautiful, warm light that can make a room feel larger, brighter and more inviting to spend time in.
Having an open plan aesthetic is a popular trend for homes and bi fold doors are the perfect way to create this look. They can be closed when privacy is needed, and they also provide the ability to let a breeze into a space when it is hot outside.
The ability to install bi fold doors yourself is a great feature for people who want to save money on installation costs. Our store page has a guide on how to do this, so make sure you check it out!
With regular cleaning, bi fold doors and frames can keep their pristine looks for years to come. They can be cleaned with non-abrasive household cleaning products or soap, water, and gently wiped down.
Adding a squirt of oil to the external tracks once a month also helps them run smoothly and prevent damage. This is particularly important if your home is in a more corrosive environment, such as a coastal location.
It’s also a good idea to regularly remove the cladding from the frames to keep it looking fresh and free of dirt and dust. This is easy enough to do with a soft brush and some household cleaning fluid. Just be sure not to use any abrasive cleaners on the aluminium or UPVC material to avoid scratching.
