What Are The Benefits Of Having Bi-Folding Doors

Have you ever known a British summer like it before? The majority of us haven’t and who knows how long it will last, but while it does you should take every opportunity to embrace the weather and the presence of bi-folding doors in your home will let you do it to the limit.

Unlike any other residential door solution

Bi-folding doors are so much different to patio doors or French doors for a number of reasons. Firstly, they can span up to 7 panes wide, and secondly, they fold and glide when you push them open. You can probably imagine yourself that a 7 pane wide bi-folding door will create quite an opening into the garden so that you can take in the sunshine! These door leafs collectively move with such elegance too as you help them along their way.

A lack of wall space to accommodate a 7 pane bi-folding door needn’t cause an issue if you really want one as a bi-folding door can be comprised of as little as 2 panes.

Here’s why you’d be wise to add bi-folds to your summer shopping list


Unspeakably stylish

The appearance of bi-folding doors alone is usually enough to make you want some as they look so classy. Aluminium is a most aesthetically-pleasing building material and this is immediately obvious when you see the aluminium frames of a bi-fold right in front of you.

Slender sightlines

Aluminium is known for being an intensely tough material, but it can be very easily moulded. Bi-folds use the slenderest of aluminium frames and these frames can house a vast span of glazing. This abundance of glass gives you virtually undisturbed views of the outdoors.

Talking point

We love it when people talk favourably about our homes and they’ll certainly speak positively about bi-folding doors as they have such an impressive quality about them. Guests will be captivated by how they gorgeous glide open and they’ll be the main point of discussion during their visit.

Selling point

They’re not just a talking point as bi-folds can also be a major selling point if you ever decide to put your property on the market. Any estate agent that comes to value the house will add bi-folding doors to the listing when advertising the property and buyers are bound to be attracted by them.


Maybe we’re feeling the heat a little too much but we’re currently waiving the cost of door fitting at Orion Windows to make sure our customers don’t have to splash out too much of their summer spends on new bi-folding doors. Get your FREE quote now to capitalise on this fantastic offer.
