What is a bi-fold door?

A bi-fold door is a type of door that is made up of two or more panels that are hinged together.

These panels fold back against each other when opened, creating a compact space-saving solution. Bi-fold doors are commonly used in places where space is limited, such as closets, laundry rooms, and as dividers between rooms or to connect indoor and outdoor spaces.

Advantages of Bi-Fold Doors:

  • Space-Saving: Bi-fold doors fold back on themselves, requiring less space to open compared to swing doors.

  • Flexibility: Can be used in various settings, including small closets, room dividers, and large openings to outdoor spaces.

  • Wide Opening: Provides a wider clear opening compared to sliding doors, which can be limited by the width of the panels.

  • Versatility: Available in different materials, finishes, and configurations to suit different aesthetic and functional needs.

Disadvantages of Bi-Fold Doors:

  • Complexity: Can be more complex to install due to the need for precise alignment and tracks.

  • Maintenance: The folding mechanism and tracks may require regular maintenance to ensure smooth operation.

  • Cost: Can be more expensive than standard swing doors due to the additional hardware and installation complexity.
