Bespoke Bi-fold doors for Interior or exterior of your home or office
Over a number of years, the popularity of external Bi-Folding doors has grown with the appeal of bringing the outside into your home, something that has been popularised in warmer climates.

Internal bi-folding doors are manufactured mainly in Poplar but can be manufactured in any species required. Unlike external joinery, internal work is not subject to the rigours of the English climate and is therefore not restricted to specific species of timber.

In addition, all external bi-folding doors fully comply with today’s building control requirements. Locking systems, glazing and the construction of the product must all comply with current legislation.
To reach these standards all locking systems comply with the recent Part Q of the building regulations and all glazing is in the form of double glazed units argon filled, UV film-coated and toughened on both sides.
Bi-folding doors can open in or out and can finish flush with the internal floor level for a seamless transition from inside to out.
Internal bi-folding door screens are an ideal solution when closing an open space or through lounge/kitchen diner, but maintaining the flexibility of the larger space when needed for parties, family dinners etc.
