What are Bi-Folding Doors?

White Bi-Folding Door

The bi-folding doors are becoming more popular than ever before, thanks in part to their regular appearance in television home make-over and lifestyle programmes.

These are a set of 2 or more glass doors designed to open in a concertina style. They fold flat when opened, however, unlike the sliding patio doors, these will just stay half-open. These doors are designed to connect your living space to a garden or terrace.

In case your home and garden are only separated by a wall, it makes a lot of sense to use Bi-Folding Doors. These are made from PVC and they offer you a way to add some fresh air as well as lots of natural light inside your home. You basically get security and outstanding visuals at a very good price, without having to worry about any downsides.

Add the wow factor to your home

Imagine being able to open up an entire wall of your room, creating space and letting fresh air and natural daylight flood into your home.

Whether you have a bedroom with a Juliette balcony, a dining kitchen, a conservatory or an orangery, bi-folding doors can provide a stunning alternative to patio or French doors.

Oaktree’s bi-folding doors were the first fully bespoke PVCu bi-folds to be designed, engineered and made in the UK – and we believe they are still the best.

Available in a wide choice of opening configurations and colours, your Oaktree bi-fold has ultra-slim sightlines, providing your room with a clean, modern appearance.

Safety features include the innovative low threshold option for family-friendly and wheelchair use.

What’s more, the Oaktree bi-fold offers high energy efficiency, combined with the best security features on the market – bringing you a modern space-saving solution for your home that will definitely give it the ‘wow’ factor.

A Grand Design

Timber or aluminium are often perceived as the only materials that can be used for bi-folding doors, but doors more from lead-free PVCu can actually offer many more benefits:

  • Smoother operation
  • Higher thermal efficiency
  • Lower maintenance
  • Can perfectly match your other doors and windows

With Oaktree’s foiled woodgrain-effect options, your bi-folding doors can have the appearance of timber, without the need to repaint them each year.

If you choose our flat grey frames, your bi-folding doors will rival the most contemporary aluminium range on the market, keeping your home much warmer at a more cost-effective price.

What you will like about the Bi-Folding Doors is that they are designed with durability in mind. Their frames are very powerful, yet at the same time, you can easily adapt these doors to your own needs. You can add them as close or as far as you want from one another. On top of that, you can add a multitude of glass styles if you want, that’s up to you.
