BI-FOLD DOORS

High-Quality Bi Folding Door Designs That Are Both Practical and Stylish

Bi Fold Doors are One of the Most Popular Choices for Both Commercial and Domestic Door Installation

With a similar aesthetic to large sliding glass doors, their major difference is revealed when the doors are opened. With bi fold doors, each panel concertinas back to create a much larger open space, as well as a way to move between an indoor and outdoor space easily.
For home extension projects, this can make an entertaining area much larger and more inviting, and for bedrooms and kitchens can allow the peace and calm of nature from outdoors to come indoors.
For commercial applications such as pubs and restaurants, bi fold doors can create a larger area for seating more customers and, on warmer days will help to facilitate a feeling of being in the outdoors while dining.

Bi Fold Doors for Your Home Extension

Bi Fold Doors Unite Your Home’s Internal and External Areas

Homeowners generally choose to add an extension to their home for one primary purpose: to create more space and have a bigger home. There are many reasons to create extra space, but one of the most common, and most exciting, is to create a bigger space for socialising and spending quality time with friends and family. If this is your end goal, bi fold doors can make your dream a reality by creating a larger living room, expanding the kitchen, or even joining an indoor entertaining area such as a conservatory with an outdoor patio or deck.

It’s not just a practical decision; building an extension is an important aesthetic choice too. An extension, if done correctly, can dramatically improve the look and feel of your home as well as increasing the amount of space available. One of the best ways to maximise your use of space while focusing on a beautiful aesthetic is to install aluminium bi fold doors that will help to get the most out of the new extension.

Timeless

With their slim frames and large double glazed (or triple glazed glass), bi fold doors will make the extension feel more spacious by filling it with beautiful natural light. In addition to this fresh energy and spaciousness, you will also benefit from beautiful, uninterrupted views and easy access to outside.

Slim Bi Fold Doors to Maximise Light and Complement Your Design

Bi Fold Doors Offer Full, Customisable Flexibility for Your Extension

To ensure that your extension blends in the rest of the house, it’s important to choose a door solution that will blend in well. Bi fold doors like the Smarts Visifold 1000 that we install features beautifully slim sightlines at a sleek 132mm without compromising on a sturdy, secure design. In this way, the doors do not become the focal point of the room but can enhance the design by ensuring that the maximum amount of light is able to enter.

Smarts Visifold 1000 bi fold doors offer unmatched variety and flexibility. Every new project has different requirements, from the size of the opening to the finish that is needed. Aluminium bi fold doors can be customised to match the interior and exterior of the home as they are available in over 200 RAL colours, as well as a number of metallic and textured finishes.

Additionally, bi fold doors come complete with an industry-leading locking system to give homeowners complete peace of mind. They can also be supplied with integral blinds so that you can have complete privacy when you need it but without the hassle of having to keep blinds dust-free.

And with glazed glass as well as high-performing weather seals and frames that are thermally efficient, your extension will remain warm and inviting, even in the cold winter months. An extension should be much more than just an added extra for your home; rather it is an opportunity to enhance the look and feel of your home making it a place that you’re happy to come home to at the end of the day.

This is the perfect use case for bi fold doors where a relaxed al fresco dining experience will entice people to choose your restaurant. And when all your tables are full, adding more tables is easy because your venue has expanded with the additional available floor space that is now available.

The Benefits of Bi Fold Doors for an Eatery

Bi fold doors have many benefits for restaurants are bars, and because they can be uniquely customised to meet the specific requirements of each installation, they can match the design of the restaurant perfectly.

Deciding whether bi fold doors are the best fit for your eatery will depend on the configuration of your restaurant and what you want to offer. In many cases, such as a poolside restaurant or a pub with an outside eating area, bi fold doors will be the best way to maximise your floor space and create an inviting, inclusive dining experience for your customers.

Specifically, for bars and restaurants, bi fold doors are able to offer:

  • Increased flexibility, if your restaurant gets busy, bi fold doors can be folded back to quickly increase the available floor space. Also, if you are hosting a special event, the doors can be folded back to make space for a dance floor or a customised configuration for the event.
  • Better natural lighting, bi fold doors create an area that has more light whether it’s cold outside and the doors are shut, or if it’s warm out and the doors have been opened. It’s also the perfect solution for giving patrons the best access to the outside views.
  • Improved temperature control, bi fold doors offer better ventilation and a way to enjoy a warmer day by opening up the doors. On colder days, the doors seal shut tightly helping to keep the interior of your restaurant of pub warm.
  • A stylish aesthetic, with bi fold doors you create an inviting environment which enhances your cub appeal making it easier to attract new customers. It’s for this exact reason that restaurants in popular seaside resorts choose to install bi fold doors to entice passing trade.
  • Better access, serving staff can be run off their feet during busy periods and if the restaurant has both an inside and outside dining area, it is a lot easier for staff to serve everyone with open bi fold doors for better access.
