5 benefits of bi-fold doors for your Kent home
15 April 2021 |Advice & Guidance
Whether you are looking to bring the outside in or create a seamless pathway from your house to the garden then our bi-fold doors offer you the perfect solution. Available in two materials: sleek and seamless aluminium bifold doors that are great for new build developments in Bromley or timeless traditional timber bifold doors that are bespoke to impressive Victorian homes in Sevenoaks. Here are 5 benefits that bifold doors from FineLine Windows has to offer.
Streamlined and sophisticated bi-fold doors
Bi-fold doors are recognised by their large expanses of glass which can be folded right back concertina-style to open an entire wall to your patio or garden. This instantly increases brightness and enhances the general atmosphere of your living space, ultimately creating the ‘wow-factor’ that we know a lot of our customers long for.
Even in smaller areas, bi-fold doors can help create the illusion of more space because their slim frames and vast expanses of glass help draw the eye beyond the end of the room and to the outside. Bi-fold doors can certainly make the area feel more spacious and stylish than the use of traditional French doors.
Just think of the garden parties, outdoor dining, and other spring and summer activities that you can host when the barrier between your home and garden is removed.
Bi-fold doors save you money on your energy bills
A benefit that we know all our customers love – saving money. Our aluminium bi-fold doors are fitted with thermally broken frames that can achieve A+ energy ratings.
Or our wooden bi-fold doors use one single piece of treated hardwood for optimal energy efficiency that can achieve A energy ratings. Depending on your house type, these impressive energy ratings could save you up to £120 a year on your energy bills – an attractive offering for anyone thinking about buying a home.
Featuring advanced security, bi-fold doors will keep you and your family safe
Both bi-fold materials offer advanced security. As standard for our aluminium bi-fold doors, 8-point locks are used to pass PAS 24 tests. Toughened glass is also used that is 5x stronger than standard glass.
As standard for our wooden doors, these are fitted with multi-point locks and shoot bolt systems to pass BS644 security requirements. Additional hardware can also be included.
Integral blinds can be fitted in bi-fold doors for retained privacy
Another great benefit of our bi-fold doors is that, regardless of material, they can be fitted with integral blinds. With either a slider or cordless slider option available, you will be able to adjust how much warmth enters the room. What’s even better about integral blinds is that because they are confined within the two panes of glass, they are not exposed to any elements and will remain in prestige condition for a long time.
A wide variety of colours to suit your Kent home
Another benefit of bi-fold doors is that they are available in a variety of colours. Both materials are available in over 150+ RAL colours, from the traditional Jet Black and Anthracite Grey to Grey White and Chartwell Green, we are confident that we can achieve your desired colour(s).
Our aluminium bi-fold doors also come in a variety of wood effects with optional dual-colour designs so you can have a different colour on the interior and exterior of your door if that is what you would like.
