Aluminium Windows in AucklandBifold Windows

Bifold Windows

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.

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.

FAQs

What is a bifold window?

A bifold window is a contemporary window design that offers you an unobstructed view of the outside. Framed panels are fixed adjacent to one another along a track which slide back when opened.  Each window panel is fixed to the other with hinges.

How do bifold windows work?

As you push the handles open, they fold outwards and arrange themselves in a neat stack at either end.

This gives you an unhampered view of the outside in addition to allowing plenty of breeze and sunshine into your space. Generally, between two and ten panels are used. Bifold windows are often favoured as a design tool to make a room look more spacious.
