Benefits of bifold doors
The main benefit of bifold systems is that they provide a wide opening, which offers easy access and also allows light and air to flow throughout your premises.
Bifold windows and doors are great as a room divider, which can be opened to offer both privacy or a open area.
The most common materials used to manufacturer bifold doors are aluminium and glass, which combine to present a contemporary alternative to standard door systems.
Stack to one side
Bifold doors consist of multiple panels that stack to one side when opened.
Top track wheels
The doors are usually connected to a track system located above the doors, which contains rollers to enable easy operation.
High traffic areas such as shops and restaurants, where the doors are used every day, generally require a heavy duty design that can handle this daily use.
Some manufacturers have used lighter grade systems in the past, which have caused problems with the glass.
