The larger the opening is beyond four metres, the more sliding doors come into their own


there will always be a place for bi-fold doors or French doors for smaller openings. The cut-off point between sizes is not set in stone, but in our experience the larger the opening is beyond four metres, the more sliding doors with narrower frames come into their own, while the smaller the opening the more bi-fold doors or French doors are chosen.


One element that needs to be considered that is not always clear at the point of specification is the logistics and costs involved in installations. With sliding doors featuring larger panels the likelihood of lifting equipment or additional manpower being required on site increases which can push up the costs involved. With smaller more manageable panel sizes, logistics are always more


straight forward with bi-fold doors. The most important piece of advice we offer customers, whichever system they are considering is to see the doors in person and to try them out for themselves. The old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ could not be more true in the glazing industry, and whether you opt for a sliding door or bi-fold door you want to ensure the system you have installed in your home doesn’t just look good, it also works perfectly time after time, year after year.
