No-nonsense Guide to Bi-Fold Doors and Screening Solutions
Bi-fold doors are able to change a drab living space into a spacious and inviting entertainment area that merges the indoors together with the outdoors. Here is a useful overview we have put together to answer any questions you might have about bi-fold door setups as well as how to screen them.
Before choosing your bi-fold doors, you will need to figure out if you have the right space for them. The best way to know for sure would be to speak with a professional, a window and door manufacturer or even an architect could give you the best answer. After checking out your property, they will be able to give you the advice you need about which kind and size of doors can be installed in your particular space.
Although bi-fold doors will normally fit any kind of space or aperture, it’s still better to be certain in order to ensure you get a perfect fit. A professional will also be able to let you know if your renovation will require council approval or not.
How do bi-fold doors work?
Sometimes referred to as “folding sliding doors”, bi-fold doors fold inwards or outwards in order to open up your living space. Bi-fold doors are made of panels that can be folded up and stacked against the wall to make the most out of your living space. Bi-fold doors can be used for both interiors and exteriors.
Interior bi-fold doors, for example, might be used to separate the pantry or the laundry room from the kitchen, whereas exterior bi-fold doors are used to open up a living space onto an outdoor area like a garden or terrace.
Exterior bi-fold doors are also usually glazed and have large glass panels designed to let in plenty of sunlight. These doors use a simple runner system, allowing the doors to slide smoothly aside with the help of small wheels.
The panels of the doors are connected with hinges which are attached to the roller track at the bottom or top of the door. Your bi-fold doors setup can also include a handy traffic door for any more frequent coming in and out of the house.
What are the main advantages?
- Flexible like no other door
- Customizable for nearly any situation
- Available in a variety of materials
- Easy to install, repair, and clean
- Very secure, usually having a multiple lock system along different points of the track
What kinds of setups are possible?
There are a variety of different setups for bi-fold doors. For example the specific number of doors and panels and how they open up. The exact configuration can be customised in basically whatever way you need in order to fit your space as well as be convenient or suit your taste.
Choose how many panels you would like, decide whether they should fold inwards or outwards, and figure out the best place to put your lead door, or the panel that will open first and be at the center of the locking system.
Which materials are available?
The most popular materials people usually opt for include timber, aluminum (this one is quite resistant and also easy to maintain), and PVC (which is more energy-efficient than aluminum). In the end, the kind of material you choose will depend on considerations like what will best suit your home, your aesthetic preferences, and finally energy-efficiency.
How to incorporate door fly screens with your bi-fold doors
Although there seems to be a popular belief that bi-fold doors are not compatible with fly screens, this is simply not true. It will definitely be possible to find screens to fit your doors no matter how intricate your configuration.
You can even find screens that will slide away into a cartridge at the side of the frame so that you can continue to enjoy your view of the outdoors at times or seasons when the screens are not necessary.
