Exterior bifold doors make a stunning upgrade to any home or building, opening up your interior space to the outside to create the perfect indoor-outdoor living, dining, or entertaining space. Now let’s take this a step further and take a look at cornered bi fold patio doors! As the name would suggest, these are glass doors that can be fitted to open up not just one wall, but an entire corner of your building. They even have the possibility of extending as far as the length of two walls of your room, depending on the structural capacity of your property. These cornered glass bifold doors can be fitted with a fixed post at the corner, or without. The former is fairly self-explanatory, so we’re going to take a detailed look at the latter.
“Floating corner”, “open corner”, “frameless corner”, or even “cornerless” patio folding doors are just a few of the names these doors have been given, and they are perfect for opening up a dark corner of your home or expanding your entertaining area into one all-inclusive room. Don’t feel like opening up the entire door system? Ask your dealer about configurations that allow access in and out by just opening a single panel, much like a French door.
When considering cornerless glass bifold doors for your property, it’s important to have the building professionally evaluated by an architect or structural engineer to ensure viability. In many cases, some structural work may be required to make sure the weight of the house is cantilevered away from the corner where the patio folding doors meet. Another option can be to install the post a little further inside the building if you are able to find a place that makes sense both structurally and functionally.
As with all types of exterior bifold doors, it is imperative that these cornerless versions are installed professionally. The Folding Door Store not only has in-house installation contractors, we also have an extensive background in the construction industry that has given us working knowledge and understanding of all that is required for such an endeavor. We would love to help you with your project with cornered or cornerless bi fold patio doors!
