- Do you want your Bifold doors to open in or out ?
- How many panels would you like in your doors ? (you can have your bifold doors divided into panes right the way up to 6 so the opening can be from 1.5m to 6m wide ! )
Handles & Glazing
Some Bi-Fold Door systems offer concealed handles as an option giving a sleek design and taking up less room, allowing the doors to open and fold back more completely.
The glass is normally clear to give a stunning open view to the outside. You can however upgrade the specification to a higher grade glass with solar control to reduce the glare from the sun.
A good idea if the doors are South facing with a large surface area of glass.
You can also opt for integral blinds that sit within the glass units and are operated by remote control. Wow just got better and the offer privacy and solar control at the touch of a button!
