Custom Bifold Doors
Transform your Living Area
Unlike sliding doors where only half the total area can be opened, folding doors open completely and create large panoramic openings into your garden or yard. Bifold doors consist of two or more door connected panels that open concertina style, folding away flat to one side when open. Folding patio doors are the best way to get the most natural light and largest uninterrupted views. Neuffer offers you a wide range of RAL colour options, finishes, frame styles and sizes to craft a bespoke solution to your project.
Style, Versatility and Quality
With their accordion like opening and closing system, folding doors were only used on the interior in the past. Today's modern technology and manufacturing techniques means their security and the seals between each panel can match any other style. Bi-fold doors can be opened completely with all doors stowed to the side. This means you get 100% of the overall door space in contrast to sliding doors. However, since bi-folding doors are made from a series of individual sections, they can also be opened partially, panel by panel.
Today, bi-folding doors are ideal for patio doors and balconies which connect the interior of your home with the exterior. They add lots of light and space, both particularly important in urban areas.
Why Choose Bi-fold Doors vs French and Sliding Doors?
French doors have long been the most common style and are synonymous with patio door. They are great for smaller installation areas in the facade. Yet, by swinging inwards or outwards, they unfortunately take up further room which may already be at a premium. They also only offer inswing and outswing options whereas folding patio doors can open all in one direction, in the middle, or to both sides.
Compared to sliding doors, bi-folding doors open entirely whereas sliders can only open over half of the overall door space. Since folding doors are made up of several panels, they have more locking points than sliding ones and also make it easier to install blinds. There is also no threshold as they are flush with the floor making them automatically barrier-free whereas sliding doors have to be additionally configured to be so.
