The benefits of bifold doors for summer

Apr 23, 2019

Having just had marvellous weather for Easter across the UK our thoughts inevitably turn to hoping that summer will have as much sun and blue skies.

Bifold doors are captivating in every way – from how they work to how they look. Whether supplied as a 2-pane, 7-pane or corner set design and folded like a concertina to the end of their tracking system, they will provide you with the perfect outdoor escape route from your home extension or traditional living space. This will be particularly useful when the weather is at its best for a series of reasons…


Let’s be optimistic and predict that this summer will be as wonderful as last year’s in terms of warmth and being dry. You might not have any plans to go abroad, but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on getting a tan and owning bifold doors will give you every excuse to go out and get one every opportunity you can.


Summer just wouldn’t be the same without the good old British barbecue. A full-on garden party attended by your closest friends and relatives with all sorts of meaty treats prepared on the grill will be aided by the presence of bifold doors as you can take dinnerware, cutlery, and condiments outside without any hassle. They’ll also give you a quick pathway for shelter if the weather takes a turn for the worse.


Anybody with children knows how difficult it can be trying to keep children occupied throughout the six-week school holidays. They will have an incentive to play out in the garden more frequently during their break as the view through a bifolding door is certain to entice them outdoors. While they do that, you can keep an eye on them with the door open or closed.


You will be especially thankful that you own bi-folding doors if temperatures really rocket this summer as you can use them to ventilate the inside of their respective location. Using the free fresh air to ventilate exceptionally warm areas is a much cheaper option than relying on a fan system to cool things down.
