Fit Bi-Folding Doors To Bring The Outdoors Indoors This Summer

Over the Easter period, Britain was bathed in sunshine and temperatures exceeded the norm for the time of year, which we can only hope is an indication that this summer will be a scorcher – wouldn’t it be nice if it was a repeat of last year’s heatwave!

Should our summer wishes come true, we very much doubt that you will want to spend much time indoors, preferring to spend the majority of it outdoors. You will have all the reason in the world to do that when you have bi-folding doors integrated into a part of your home that you can use to open out your indoor setting to your outdoor setting (they could be fitted into the rear of the original building or most form of home extensions (conservatory or orangery).

You could, of course, do something similar with a set of patio doors or French doors, but they won’t give you a full unrestricted opening like you get with a bi-folding door. The individual leafs can be completely folded out of the way at one end.

There have been examples of some very large patio door installations; indeed, we’ve been responsible for many of them. They can be matched by a bi-fold in terms of width as Pennine offers 7-pane-wide bi-folding doors that stretch a serious distance. Although, when wall space is in short supply, we can supply a 2-pane design. In both scenarios, the opening supplied by a bi-folding door will bring together home and garden in a fashion you could only dream of.

After the installation of bi-folding doors, you will very quickly become addicted to using them. Warm weather will give you all the excuse you need to take a hold of the handle and manoeuvre the doors along the tracking system. It’s unbelievable how lightweight they are when you consider that they contain such enormous pieces of glass and aluminium framework concealing these glass panes. The gentlest of pushes will suffice to get them moving.

It would though be naïve of us to expect the weather to hold up throughout the entire summer. But, when rain hits, you can still find enjoyment in admiring the outstanding view provided by the bi-folds as the framework takes a back seat to the wealth of glass within the design. This glass will also project warmth into your interior, so you can expect supreme comfort while waiting for conditions outside to improve.
