Bifold doors come in an array of design and panel options, and also offer the largest opening space from all the door types available.
Our aluminium bifold doors are available for supply only, to be installed by an experienced builder, or can come fully installed by our in-house team of skilled installers. Bifold doors longer than 2m will need site glazing, which may attract an additional cost from your builder. Otherwise, it is recommended that you use the Window Factory installers who can undertake the site glazing for you at no additional cost.
What are bifold doors?
Bifold doors are hinged, folding doors. They have multiple leaves that fold away, accordion-like, which has given rise to them being referred to by the name concertina doors. They need to be properly aligned and if they fall out of alignment, may not fold correctly or easily. The cost for aluminium doors will depend on the options you choose, across size, glazing options, framing and finishes.
When to use bifold doors
Bifold doors are a great way to blur the line between an indoor and outdoor space, making them perfect for decks or patios. They also give the illusion of a bigger space with an unobstructed opening. Aluminium bifold doors take up less space since they fold into themselves and don’t jut out, not encroaching into your indoor outdoor flow.
Bifold door configurations
You can choose whether you want your bifold door to open outwards or inwards. We have a range of bifold configurations for you to choose from, such as 2+1, 3 one way, etc. We also offer lay-back or standard aluminium bifold doors.
Some important things to consider when selecting a bifold door are:
- Configuration e.g. 2+ 1 or 3 one way
- Model of bifold as we have a selection available
- Single glazing or double glazing
- Lay-back or standard
‘Lay-back’ doors are available in 2-panel, 2+1, 1+2 and 2+2 configurations. This option is ideal for small outdoor spaces where the standard panels would be in the way.
Our sales people are very experienced in helping you choose the best configuration and model that best suits your purpose.
Framing and glazing options
Most bifolds are available in either standard aluminium or THERMALHeart, which offer additional insulation. Our bifold doors also come with the option of single or double glazing.
Colours and finishes available
Our aluminium bifold doors in Auckland are available for customised painting in more than a 100 different colours, for the powder finish. They also come in six different shades of anodised steel.
