When Open Space is Needed in an Instant
There are instances when you simply wish you were able to conveniently fold your wall and stack them to the corner of another wall to reclaim the space occupied by the wall or the door. For example, you may have a very beautiful home interior that opens to a wonderful rose garden or a Japanese garden complete with peach blossoms and koi pond. Unfortunately, if your door is of the ordinary swing type variety, then you simply won’t get the full view that you wanted. Sometimes, even if you already have a sliding door, you will still not be able to take full advantage of the entire beauty of the outside environment. This is because some of the panels will still be occupying a certain portion of the overall view.
The solution? AG Millworks Bi Fold Doors. These allow you to expand your lifestyle, folding the entire door panels and stack them against the wall of giving you unrestricted access to both the superb views and the open air spaces of the outside environment. This is perhaps the most often sought attribute of bi-fold doors. This is especially useful in large gatherings where freedom of movement is tantamount to the overall success of the party. This means that the interior and the exterior areas of the house are fully integrated allowing for the efficient flow of visitors, food, beverage, and, of course, unbridled fun.
Bi fold doors are often indicated to connect rooms to an even larger area such as the outdoors, the backyard, the garden, or even the conservatory. These are often used for different purposes. The bi fold doors system is composed of anywhere between 2 and 7 door panels connected to one another with hinges and are attached to heavy duty rollers located both at the top and bottom of the panels. In some cases, especially in colder climates, bi fold doors feature a traffic door which serves as a standard door for people to pass through without necessarily having to fold and stack the door system all the way to the wall. This allows the conservation of heat during the cold winter months by limiting the entry of cold air into the interior of the home. This helps minimize energy costs related to heating.
Additionally, bi-fold doors are also known for their very slim profile, low maintenance, versatility, modern contemporary appeal, and practicality. French doors and sliding patio doors may not be that practical especially when it comes to more confined spaces simply because these will still have certain parts of the door partially blocking access. This is a particular issue for families who may have persons with disabilities such as those on wheelchair. Opening the entire wall gives these individuals unrestricted access.
