Create a natural living room by making your garden, patio or decked area a true extension of the house

Bi-Fold Doors


Need Space? You’ve Found It

Bi-fold doors are a cross between French doors and patio doors. French doors are fixed at the hinge ends and open either inwards or outwards. Patio doors slide from left or right.

Bi-fold doors offer the best of both worlds. The fold and slide. For, example, you can open one end and slide it open while perhaps leaving the other end fixed. Or why not open all of the locks and slide back everything. If you need to create some serious impact by converting a wall of glass into an open space with totally uninterrupted views outside, then bi-fold doors are the answer.

You really can go the whole hog and remove a brick wall and install bi-fold doors. Daylight and heat from the sun will now flood the room. The effect is breathtaking. Imagine going into your room, flick a couple of handles and push back a wall of glass and either sit back and enjoy the view or step outside into your garden.

Patio doors and French doors generally offer about 45% of unobstructed opening. Bi-fold doors get close to 95%. There really is no better way to bring the outdoors inside. They transform any room and have stunning impact whether open or closed. They will become a feature of your home. No wonder so many new-build properties now feature bi-fold doors as standard. Once you’ve either seen them or had them installed, you will wonder how on Earth you managed before.

Here at Scandinavian Windows, aluminium bi-fold doors are one of our favourite products. Most people have an inkling as to what sort of effect installing French doors or patio doors will have, but when they first slide open their bi-fold doors, it really does take some getting used to.

Of course, being a Scandinavian Windows product means that they will be triple glazed and offer the ultimate in terms of energy efficiency.  They will have multiple locking mechanisms to keep you secure. You will immediately notice the sound-deadening effects of the triple glazing.

If you want to transfer your home, aluminium patio doors are one of the most cost-effective products you can buy.
