“Are Bifold doors secure?”
If your bifold doors are external (leading from the rear of your home into your kitchen, living room, dining room or conservatory) then you want to ensure they are secure.
Our doors are aluminium framed and come fully assembled and ready to install. Some cheaper alternatives come flat packed.
There are multi-point locking systems that lock at various points on the tracks below and above the doors.
The glass used is double glazed & toughened & 4mm thick on both panes and meets British Standards BS 5286.
“Are Bifold doors energy efficient?”
This obviously only relates to exterior bifold doors, and as long as they are installed properly, they should be very energy efficient indeed.
Keep the cold out and the warm in.
The energy efficiency of your bi-fold doors depends on your U-Value. A lower U-Value means your home is more energy efficient, with a decent U-Value typically sitting at around 1.3 or 1.4. A structure’s U-Value is calculated by measuring the rate at which heat is transferred through it and dividing it by the difference in temperature throughout your home. To achieve a lower U-Value you’ll want to make sure your doors are air tight and that you use toughened glass, which will naturally have a lower U-Value.
“What design options are available?”
You can choose the number of leafs you require – 3,4, or 5 (are the most popular) or more depending on the size of your opening, the weight of the doors and the structural integrity of your house.
There are many variations of how the doors can be configured.
A traffic door (the main door you go in and out of) can be placed at any position of your choice within the Bi Fold door system.
Doors don’t have to slide from one side to another, they can slide either way, from the centre or off centre and can fold inside or outside.
“What is the best way to clean my Bifold doors?”
Bifold doors are easy to clean. Just use soap and water with a microfibre cloth to keep the glass sparkling clean and a mild detergent with a cloth or sponge to clean the frames.
Use a vacuum cleaner to clean out any dirt or dust from the tracks.
“What are the heights of the Bifold doors?”
