Throughout the summer months, bifold doors are essential for letting cool air into your property. By leaving the doors wide open on a hot day, cool air can circulate and ventilate your home – removing the need for free-standing fans or air conditioning.

Alternatively, during winter months bifold doors can actually reduce your bills as the sturdy aluminium frames and double glazing makes them brilliantly energy efficient, retaining heat without the risk of draughts and cold spots. The doors are designed to seal your home externally, and if the sun is left to shine through the widespan glass all day into your home, the doors will keep the heat trapped.
