Posted on 27.04.2021

Bifold doors are an ever growing, popular choice for new home projects as they ooze modern style and completely transform any living space. The abundance of design options of bifold doors allows complete configuration flexibility so that that you can have them created to suit your family’s living space, making outdoor to indoor living seamless and easy. You can select the bifold door opening options, number of panels, size and colour options of your door. No matter what project you’re working on, we have a bifold door option for your space.

Panel sizes

Aluminium bifold doors

For both our Bowalker aluminium and aïr 800 bifold doors, you can choose from a range of configurations to suit your living space, to make life easier for the whole family when nipping in and out of the house, as well as creating a stunning, open plan living area.

aïr 800 bifold doors create large openings for your space with impressive panel dimensions of 1.2m wide and 3m high along with sightlines as slim as 108mm. Bowalker’s standard aluminium bifold door panels are available in a maximum height of 2.5m and maximum width of 1m. With these two options, you can make the most out of your available space and have them designed to meet your exact specifications and plans.

Panel options

The size of your bifold door opening ultimately depends on the size of your wall. So, the larger your wall is, the larger your bifold door can be to make use of the space. You can also choose the number of panels for your bifold doors. The more panels you opt for, the more open space you will add into your home. For example, if you have 10 panels at 1.2m wide, you can create a feature wall of glass that’s an amazing 12m wide.

Opening your bifold doors

Both ranges are designed to completely open up your living space. You can have your bifold doors stacked inside or outside and have them either completely fold away to open in one direction or split to fold on both sides. Additionally, you can choose whether your doors open from the left or right, which is determined by what will suit your living space best and how you’d like the layout of your room to be.

Traffic doors

Whilst having a wall of glass that completely unfolds is a great way to open up your home, sometimes it’s handy to have the option of a smaller opening too. This is when a traffic door can be implemented. These are built into the bifold door system, but open separately so they can be used as a single door. This way, you can have quick, and easy access to your garden as and when you need to nip out.

Colour options

This all depends on the style and aesthetics of your home, and whether you want to create a standout feature or effortlessly blend your new glazed doors in with the rest of your property. Our full bifold door range can be selected in any RAL colour, so you can choose the exact shade of your liking. This way, you could match your bifold door frames to the colours in your garden to bring the nature one step further into your home.
