If you have a wonderful home with a great view of your garden or a gorgeously spread out postcard landscape out front, then you need doors that provide an unobstructed view.
Consider standard options like sliding doors. A part of the opening will always remain covered regardless of whether you use two partitions or three partitions. French doors just don’t fit large openings. Custom folding doors are the answer, especially when the opening is large and an unrestricted view is desired. They save space and provide an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
The term folding doors may be a misnomer as these doors are, in effect, made up of several panels that fold together like an accordion or concertina into a compact group of panels that don’t take up much space and stay neatly on one side of the door. door. opening. You have a clear vision. Standard panel sizes can range from 24 to 36 inches wide or customized to fit the width of the openings, which might be a better option in some cases. Custom bifold doors can help save space and the use of matching hardware means it will be a pleasure to operate.
Personalization can take several forms. You can choose to have narrow or wider paneled folding doors to accommodate design considerations and aesthetics of how the door will look when fully closed. Narrow panels give a nice look, but in some cases one may want a less obstructed view, in which case the wider panels serve this purpose. The cost will also vary. Obviously, more panels cost more, but the advantage is that opening and closing the folds will be easier when the door has narrow panels and takes up less space.
Where there are doors with glass, the question of curtains or blinds always arises. Again, customization helps when you choose double-glazed panels with integrated louvers that are fully sealed on the inside and can be opened or closed by sliding a magnetic latch. These integrated folding doors also help save space and present a neater appearance. Then there are small details that the installer and the manufacturer will take care of, such as the use of quality slide rails, pivots and hinges that blend seamlessly into the aluminum frame. Another issue that requires customization is whether to place the track on top or bottom. It’s best to consult a reputable door installer and supplier and get a site inspection for a custom fit.
Bifold doors are not just a division between inside and outside. They can also be used indoors to good effect as space savers between rooms. You can have a larger opening without the drawback that large door panels create obstructions in tight spaces.
Folding doors have several advantages, such as ease of use, fully opening a room to the outside, security with the right set of hardware, and energy efficiency. These benefits can be further enhanced by customizing the folding panels along with the glazing and hardware.
