Bi folding doors: an attractive investment no matter what the season
Bi folding doors are manufactured in modern facilities, and quotes can be obtained for construction work that employs bi folding doors, as well as the re-fitting of pre-existing installations. One of the advantages to fitting a set of this doors type in any development or home is the fact that they are likely not to require as much space, even when they are being fitted. If you are to take installations of other kinds – such as larger doors that do not fold, or kitchen worktops, frequently more space needs to be cleared and more room needs to be made to accommodate the transport of the doors or worktop surfaces into the home.
Although it’s always a good idea to keep kids and pets away from any work that’s going on, one thing you will not have to focus on as much is clearing a lot of space for entry and egress of the workmen with bi folding doors.
Speaking of the kids, bi folding doors usually employ child safety features such as finger protectors, and many of the doors have standard features like this. Make sure that you ask about each individual set of this doors type if you have any concerns about the possibility of danger.
Increasingly, we see an emphasis – through legislation and lobbying – on saving energy. Bearing this in mind, you will want your doors to keep heat in the colder months, rather than let it out. There are argon gas filled double glazed window units in many of the bi folding doors that are available. Alongside the seals around the edges of the doors, this means that heat is retained in the home or office, making energy efficiency an added bonus. Note that a good energy rating increases the value of any property – and not only that, but value will be added by the appearance and with the convenience of a bi folding doors set.
In the warmer months, you can effectively let the outdoors indoors by opening the doors right up. If it’s too hot or a little too cool, you have any number of options to let just a little of the outdoors inside too. For instance, you can simply open half of one bi folding door, locking it into place, to let a little fresh air into the home or the office. When the weather is finer, you can pull both doors fully open in order to let all of the warmth and sunshine into your home. It’s win-win!
You can be assured that the bi folding doors will look as majestic or as discreet as you want them to be. For instance, if someone is making a big entrance at a garden birthday party, you can invite them through the doors with the flourish of a monarch’s footman. You can go for a more subtle look for your doors by literally folding them back against the wall.
In any number of finishes, they suit many different kinds of property – no matter how old or new. Check out the bi folding doors on offer today.
