Our external bi fold doors are energy efficient, secure and stylish, with toughened glass and multi-point locking systems. They’re available in 3 to 6 door configurations, to suit any openings from 1.8m to 4.8m. Like all our door systems, they come as a kit, complete with furnishings, tracks and easy-to-follow instructions. You’ll be enjoying your new, opened-up living space in no time!
Our Range of Internal Bi Fold Doors
Bi fold doors aren’t just for connecting the indoors with the outdoors; they are also a stylish and practical way to connect the spaces within your home. WIth our range of internal bi fold doors, you can seamlessly connect your kids’ play room with your living room or your kitchen with your dining room.
The beauty of internal bi fold doors is that they allow you to create an open-plan living space, with the ability to divide that space when you need it. Sometimes known as room dividers, they can be opened or closed as privacy or space requires. Our internal bi fold doors are available fully finished, or classic white primed. Or, if you wish to paint or stain them a particular colour to match your decor, you can opt for an unfinished set.
What are bi fold doors and how do they work?
Bi fold, or bi folding, doors, are sets of 2 or more connected panels that open up in a concertina style to provide a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors or between rooms in your home. The panels fold flat against themselves when open, rather than opening outwards like a French door, or covering half the opening, like a sliding patio door. The panels sit within a track, and when opened, they slide along and fold back against themselves simultaneously. This makes them an ideal choice for opening up your living space.

What size are bi fold doors?
Thanks to their flexibility, bi fold doors are available in a number of sizes. The individual panels are usually standard size, but the number of panels can vary depending on the size of the opening. This makes them an excellent choice for larger spaces, while the large glazed panels help to open up smaller spaces. Our smallest bi fold door sets are 2-panel internal sets, while our largest go up to 6 panels and openings up to 4.8m
Are bi fold doors expensive?
Bi fold doors can be more expensive than other types of door, as their complex construction means that manufacturing them is more expensive. The cost will also depend on any additional work needed, such as cutting or widening the opening. However, they are versatile, stylish and durable, so while bi fold doors are sometimes expensive, their high quality construction and energy efficiency make them a worthwhile investment.
Are bi fold doors draughty?
When installed and maintained correctly, bifold doors are no more draughty than any other type of door. The only time you might get a draught is if the doors are not closed properly, and this should be obvious as the door won’t sit flush in its frame. Otherwise, with proper care and maintenance, your bi fold doors will keep draughts, rain and snow at bay and keep your home warm and cosy for years to come.
Are bi fold doors secure?
In short, yes, bifold doors are secure. All of our external bifold doors conform to the standards set by Secured By Design. This is the official police initiative that works to improve the security of buildings so that they are safe places to live in and visit. In addition, as our doors are installed within tracking systems, they are difficult for intruders to remove without specialist equipment. Find out more about bi fold door security here.
