FIRST™ bi-fold windows run on an easy-slide track system and allow wide opening. They’re ideal where homeowners or designers want to capitalise on views, capture summer breezes, or create a unity between indoors and outdoors. Because bi-folds project outwards exercise caution in using them beside decks or walkways.
Configurations with even numbered panels are generally used, eg. 2 panels, 2+2 panels, 4 panels and 6 panels.
When to Use Bifold Windows
- Ideal for uninterrupted views
- Great for increasing airflow with large openings
- Where exterior walls or extra space allow for layback of panels
Other Uses for Bifold Windows
Bifold windows can be used to separate and connect interior rooms as well. For instance, you can install them between the dining room and the kitchen to make them appear more cohesive and open out both spaces. These can be customised to fit into your space and they are a popular option for commercial establishments as well as homes.
The bifold window design can be used for patio or balcony doors as well. You can have them installed with premium locks for security.
Advantages of Bifold Windows
Once installed, one of the key advantages of these windows is the low maintenance that they require. By choosing the appropriate type of glass, they are thermally efficient and keep the heat indoors during the winter.
Bifold Window Configurations
Configurations with even numbered panels are generally used, eg. 2 panels, 2+2 panels, 4 panels and 6 panels. Any combination of the above can also be used for larger spans.
