Alu Clad Bi-Fold Doors vs French And Standard Patio Doors
Thinking of why you should choose external bifold doors or timber bifold doors? Here’s where the difference may lie with each of these internal doors and external doors.
French doors continue to hold their place in many homes across the country, providing a more traditional look to homes. These folding sliding doors have become synonymous with traditional patios, allowing for a simple solution that’s both low-cost and requires minimal design.
Unlike bi-fold doors, French doors can swing outwards or inwards, depending on the configuration, and can take up additional space. With bi-folding doors, the folding panels can all open in one direction and can be stacked on either side. These doors take up less space when opened, and create a more minimal appeal.
Another traditional solution that has found a place in many homes over the years is sliding doors. These doors are available in either aluminium or wooden frames, with a standard glass pane. Unlike bi-folding doors, when used a sliding door only opens half over the door space.
On top of that, folding doors tend to have multiple locking points, whereas a sliding door will typically only have one. Insulation tends to be less efficient with sliding doors, although some newer designs are more flush with the floor and wall, allowing for improved thermal insulation.
Finally, depending on the design, sliding doors are typically only available in one or another material, and may lead to increased maintenance and replacement costs in the future.
