Bi-fold doors are a real statement piece for any home. With Windows 3000 you're guaranteed to receive the highest standard of workmanship when it comes to installing your bi-fold doors. Our friendly team of professionals have had years of experience designing and installing a huge variety of bi-fold doors over the years, so you can be confident in the service you're getting bifold doors create a seamless connection between your home and your patio or garden, and are perfect for creating the illusion of space. They do this in 2 ways. Firstly, they usually consist of two or more standard sized doors which, when opened, will fold almost flat - Opening up approximately 90% of the door area. Compare this to a traditional sliding patio door where only 50% of the space is opened up and you can immediately see what a difference bi-fold doors can make. Secondly, as bi-fold doors are predominantly glass, they allow a significant amount of natural light into the property. This gives the illusion of a bigger and brighter room. To give you more control over the amount of natural light entering the property, you even have the option of installing blinds or window tinting.
There are three main materials used to create the frames on bi-fold doors: Aluminium, uPVC and timber, with the first two options being the most popular. We have hundreds of different stains to enhance that natural look and they can be painted any colour you desire.
Aluminium bi-folding doors are the most popular choice, this is largely down to being so versatile. Aluminium frames can suit both modern, contemporary homes as well as older, more traditional properties. As with timber frames, aluminium frames are available in any colour you choose to ensure they are in keeping with the design and style of your property. As well as having the advantage of being able to handle thinner frames than timber, Aluminium also has the added benefit of needing little to no maintenance once installed.
When researching bi-folding doors you will come across two phrases: 'top hung' and 'bottom rolling'. This is referring to the two different styles of supporting the doors. Top hung can be advantageous as leaves and debris etc. are less likely to interfere with the running system, plus most of the operating mechanisms are hidden away in the frame head. Bottom rolling has the advantage of not needing a sufficiently sturdy beam across the opening to support the door. If you're not sure which one to choose, our team of experts will be happy to advise you on what would suit your property best.
