For the last two winters, Britain has been bashed by torrid weather. However, one thing is for certain, bi-folding doors have kept homeowners snug and warm.
And, with uncertain weather once again predicted, those same homeowners will be facing this winter safe in the knowledge that their bi-folding doors are more than ready for the task ahead.
Bi-folding doors – also known as folding sliding doors – are growing more and more popular with homeowners wanting to bring a touch of contemporary design to their homes. Bi-folding doors have replaced traditional patio doors as the desired choice for external rear and side doors for many people.
Every set of Apropos’ bi-folding doors are of a bespoke design, created uniquely for each individual client.
Bi-folding doors’ great beauty is in their ability to open up complete sides of properties to merge the inside with the outside, allowing homeowners to fully enjoy their gardens to the full during warm periods.
This is all well and good when the weather allows, but what about when the weather is unforgiving? This is when bi-folding doors’ second function comes into play. With their sweeping profiles and minimal frames, bi-folding doors provide the perfect conduit for light to flood into properties even on the darkest of winter days. Bi-folding doors also act as huge canvasses, making properties’ gardens picturesque backdrops that can be enjoyed cosily in the warmth of the home.
Bi-folding doors are also very thermally efficient. Apropos uses highly advanced double glazing to achieve great insulation ratings, with centre pane U-values better than 1.2 W/m2K. As a result, despite their large areas of glass, bi-folding doors combine their beautiful glazing with a great ability to keep homes warm all winter whatever the weather. This means that whilst the winter weather rages outside, light in the property is maximised and occupants won’t feel a pinch from Jack Frost thanks to their bi-folding doors.
