Bifold Doors FAQ

Bifolding doors are a type of door that can be opened and closed by folding back in on itself. Typically, two or more panels make up a bifold door, and each panel is hinged so that it can fold back. Bifolding doors are a great option for homes and businesses that want to create an open space or conserve space.

Bifold doors can be installed internally or externally in your home. They are commonly used as an alternative to traditional doors, such as sliding glass doors, French doors, or even garage doors. Our bifold doors are most commonly used to open onto a patio or garden to create an airy indoor/outdoor living space, but they can also be used as internal dividers between two rooms.

Bifolding doors work by hinges that are attached to the door panels. When the door is opened, the hinges allow the door to fold back on itself. This creates an opening that is twice the width of the door. Bifolding doors can be opened manually or with the help of an electric motor.

Bifold patio doors offer many benefits over traditional doors. They are easy to operate and can be opened with the push of a button. Bifolding doors also provide a clear view, which can be advantageous over traditional doors that must be slid open. Bifolding doors are also a great way to divide a room or create an indoor/outdoor living space. Click here to learn more about the benefits of bifold doors.

Bifolding doors can be more expensive than traditional doors. They also require more space to open and close, so they may not be the best option for smaller homes or businesses. However, at Bifold Door Factory, our wide range of bespoke bifold doors means that you can find the perfect solution for your patio doors.

The price of your bifold doors will depend on their size, installation, and other factors, but prices usually start around £2300 for smaller concertina doors and increase with the doors’ size.

The minimum and maximum dimensions of bifold doors depend on your chosen bifold door model, as well as other factors such as where they are placed (for instance, on a corner) and the width of the sightlines on your doors.

Bifold doors using different materials will last differing amounts of time. Choosing uPVC bifold doors is often cheaper, and they are relatively long-lasting, generally lasting around 25-35 years. However, they are unlikely to last as long as aluminium bifold doors, which last around 45 years.

Bifold patio doors are very low-maintenance. Homeowners usually just need to clean and service them annually. If you live near the sea or in a city or factory with a lot of dust or pollution, you need to clean/service your folding doors every 3-6 months. Otherwise, salt, dust, and pollution could harm bifold doors. Read more about the maintenance of bifold doors.

Bifold doors are, in fact, more secure than traditional doors since they typically use multi-point locking systems. Additionally, bifold doors usually use hardy materials such as aluminium, which makes them more difficult to break through. Click here for information about the safety of bifold doors.

Yes, many people opt for fixed doors on either side of a bifold door set. Contact us for a recommendation suited to your specific patio door requirements.

Adding or replacing bifold doors is a relatively simple home improvement that, more often than not, does not require planning permission. However, you may require planning permission if your bifold door installation is part of any work which could potentially change the use of the building or significantly alter its appearance. In this case, you may need to obtain planning permission from your local authority. This includes works such as new builds and large extensions. Some development may fall under ‘permitted development rights’, meaning that you will not need to apply for planning permission. It is always best to check the specifics with your local council.

Some experts estimate that bi-folding doors can add around 5-10% to the resale value of a property. There are several reasons for this, such as their ability to open a property into the garden and create a seamless inside-outside atmosphere. Their exceptionally low U-values also help to keep the inside of a house thermally efficient, helping your property be more energy efficient and thus boosting its resale value. In addition, bi-folding doors will give your home added protection from intruders thanks to their rigid frames and the resilience of their secure locking mechanism.

A bifold door with a low threshold is ideal for creating flush levels between adjoining floor areas, such as between your house and a conservatory. For external bifold doors, a standard threshold is recommended in order to create a weather seal, along with insulating, triple-glazed glass.

Sightlines are the distance between two panes of glass on different doors or the combined width of two individual door frames where they meet. The smaller the sightlines, the bigger the glass area, providing better views of the outside space. Our products offer some of the best slim sightlines on the market, allowing you a more elegant and streamlined look for your bifold doors.

This depends on which model of bifold door you choose, but generally, many different configurations of bifold doors are available. The maximum number of panels is usually 7; the doors can open inwards or outwards, fold to the left, right, or both ways, and a traffic door can be fitted. The amount of clearance required for the doors to open varies depending on their configuration.
