The difference between Bi Folding Doors and Sliding Doors.
Bi Folding doors and Sliding Doors are both popular options for homeowners looking to bring more natural light and a sense of openness to their properties. However, there are key differences between these two door types, and it’s important to understand them before making a decision.
Bi folding doors, also known as bi fold patio doors, are made up of multiple door panels that fold in on themselves, creating a wide opening between your home and your garden or patio. We offer these doors with 2 panel aluminium Bi Fold doors, 3 panel aluminium Bi Fold doors, 4 panel aluminium Bi Fold doors, 5 panel aluminium Bi Fold doors, 6 panel aluminium Bi Fold doors. The multiple panels mean more visible door panels and aluminium profile, which can be a disadvantage for some homeowners as it means smaller glass sizes and more aluminium with the doors closed. However, when fully opened, bi folding doors can create an illusion of more space and an expansive opening that is perfect for smaller homes and gardens.
Aluminium bifold doors are a popular choice for those looking for a luxury and premium external door. They have a sleek and modern design which we all crave. Bi-Folding doors are available in any RAL colour and offer many benefits such as thermal performance, energy efficiency and being able to fold away your doors to open up your entire wall. They are designed to effortlessly open and close, providing easy usability and access.
Sliding doors are made up of large panels that slide horizontally along a track to create an opening. They are better suited for larger panes of glass up to three metres wide or more, which can offer better views of the outdoors as there are fewer door panels. Sliding doors can also be designed to disappear into the wall of a new extension, giving an even more seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Aluminium sliding doors are also a popular choice and offer many of the same benefits as bi fold doors, including effortless usability and access, understated design, and high quality security. They are ideally suited to whatever your project may be, whether it’s a new extension, commercial space renovation, home renovation or replacement door.
