Bifold doors are undoubtedly a showstopper for any home in the summertime. However, many
people may overlook just how good their functionality can also be in the winter. Let’s discuss some of
the major selling points of bifolding doors and why they’re great all year round.
There’s no doubt that the bifold doors’ unique selling point is their huge opening, letting the outside
in. The wall-to-wall fitting of the doors merge your garden and home into one. When having company
over, it’s a stunning feature that’s sure to be a great talking point. The wide opening also means
better ventilation during the hottest summer days to let that cool summer breeze into your home.
With such huge panes of glass, you’re probably thinking they take up lots of space – well surprisingly
it’s the opposite! With each door connected to the next in an accordion fashion, the frames stack on
top of one another, meaning that they stay out of the way resulting in less obstruction.
While they are great for having company over and ventilation in the summer, it begs the question,
‘What are their benefits during winter?’ .
As the nights pull in during the winter season, bifold doors are excellent at maximising the natural
light in your home. The large panes of glass in the frames allow the doors to let a lot more sunshine
inside. This means you’ll make the most of the sun before the gloomy winter evening sets in.
As with all of our doors, the bifold’ s that we install have insulation and energy-efficient double glazing
technology. The larger panels of glass do not affect the capabilities of insulating your home. With
argon-filled cavities between the two layers of glass, each frame enhances the insulation of the
doors. In addition to this, our expert fitters do a great job of sealing the doors correctly – so you
won’t feel a draught coming into your home.
We hope that by taking into account these benefits of bifolds, it’s clear to see that the fittings aren’t
only for the summer, they’re great for the winter also. If you’re looking to get bifold doors fitted into
