Bi-Fold Doors functionality relies on doors panels travelling in the opening and closing directions with the aid of pivot mechanism affixed to the upper and bottom door of the first door. The door panels are then connected with hinges allowing the door panels to fold on top of each other when opening the doors. This function can be identified as an ‘Accordion Motion’.
Bi-Fold Doors are ideal solution as a barrier or divider between two areas. They are commonly used between indoor and outdoor living areas like entry to a patio or backyard. Bi-Fold Doors are an effective solution for opening up living areas so that the space is not compromised with a wall. Essentially, bi-fold doors make the space larger in a seamless way. In addition, bi-fold doors provide better light and air flow into living areas.
Bif-fold doors can also be used as an internal barrier for separating areas in commercial and residential premises. Bi-fold doors are, for example, the perfect solution to separate a dining from a living area inside a house as they act like a wall with glass but retain the ability to be opened whenever required to provide for a natural transition of the layout achieving a larger space feel seamlessly.
Bi-fold doors can be made to open inward or outward and can be made and installed to open from one direction to the other, or, a bi-parting door travel motion providing for a centre stop point where the doors can be opened in opposite directions.
