Do bifold doors need a bottom track?
When you choose to have bi-fold doors you can decide whether you want to have a bottom track installed or not. Having a bottom track can make the door more stable when you’re opening and closing it, but if you don’t want to cut into your floor then you can have top-hung bifold doors instead. However, as the top track will have to hold the full weight of the bifold door, it will have to be supported by a strong lintel. Unless you particularly don’t want to have a bottom track, we would normally recommend it as it will give your bifolding doors more stability and a smoother operating motion.
How long does it take to install bifold doors?
Once the bifold doors are made and brought into the property, they can be easily installed in one day by our expert engineers. However, you will first have to decide on what kind of bifold doors you want and then we will make them to your specifications in our state of the art factory, which can take around six weeks. Our manufacturers will check and test your bifolds to make sure they match your requirements exactly and they function perfectly before they leave the factory.

Will bifold doors add value to my house?
If you have a beautiful garden that you want to admire whatever the weather, then installing bifold doors allows you to integrate it seamlessly into your living area. Bifold doors are an excellent way to add value to your home, as they give your house increased natural light and can create a large unobstructed access area to your garden without taking up too much space. An attractive feature for potential buyers, bifold doors are secure, energy efficient and can be a real statement piece in your home. If you want to add bifold doors to your home, then contact us today to find out how we can get doors that are perfect for you.
How do bifold doors work?
Bifold doors are made up of multiple glass doors that, when closed, make up a large glass wall. When you open them, the leaves separate, and following the tracks they are installed on, fold back on themselves in a concertina style. This means that once the doors are fully open, you have the entire space open to the garden or outdoor space. The bifolding doors stack neatly along out of your way so there are no obstructions. If you want to know more about how bifold doors work and even try out one for yourself, find your nearest showroom and talk to one of our experts.
Are bifold doors better for large or small spaces?
Bifold doors can work equally well in both large and small spaces. For large spaces, they can completely open up your home to your garden, creating exceptional ventilation and natural light in your home. One of the advantages of bifold doors is that when they are completely open, the doors stack neatly, meaning that they are very practical for smaller spaces, as you don’t need to factor in extra space to open the door as you would with an inward-opening traditional door. Bi-fold doors are also good for small spaces in comparison to sliding patio doors as they open all the way, rather than leaving one glass panel that cannot be opened.
Do the doors stack inside or outside the frame?
You can decide whether you want the bifolds to stack inside your home or outside, and it is entirely down to personal preference. If you have plant pots and garden furniture that would obstruct your panels if they stacked outside, then choosing inside stacking doors is a good idea, especially if you have a larger indoor space. For those with limited space inside, it’s normally a better option to go with outside stacking; this way you won’t have to keep a space clear for the doors to move in.
