Timber bi-fold doors from Chase Window Company are custom made, so we’re able to produce bespoke doors capable of opening up virtually any aperture, up to a maximum 15 metres wide. Made from sustainably sourced hardwood, our timber bi-fold doors are built to last a lifetime. Bi-fold doors glide effortlessly on their durable tracks and fold neatly to one side, allowing for maximum access to the outside world. Also, because they consist mainly of glass they allow virtually full visibility over an exceptionally wide area plus they allow for an abundance of natural light to flood into the room.
Bi-fold doors can be installed to an outside wall or an internal opening, where a large inner space may at special times be preferred. There are many advantages of an internal partition, without blocking the direct view into the adjoining room.
Commercial and residential use
Bi-fold doors, sliding doors or folding doors as they are sometimes called, have obvious benefits for the residential property, as previously stated. However, they are also becoming quite popular for commercial use, especially in showrooms and shop fronts, with 3, 4 and 5 panel options. Restaurants and Cafes are popular locations for Bi-folding doors enabling the front to be opened up during those popular summer months.
The most popular choice of glazing for timber bi-fold doors is double glazing, with argon gas filled units and toughened safety glass. This special glass is also very energy efficient, helping to retain heat and keep energy bills low. They are fitted with draught and weather excluding seals to keep the elements at bay.
Security is always paramount with any type of external door. Our timber bi-fold doors are fitted with galvanised steel hinges and leading multi-point locking systems as standard. These locks exceed the requirements set by the Association of British Insurers, and are British Standard BS3621 compliant.
