Reynaers sell both bi-fold and sliding patio doors that are available to suit all design and functional requirements. However, when it comes to choosing between which to buy, here are just a few considerations…
Firstly, there is the opening and the view. When the doors are closed, sliding doors offer the most uninterrupted views as they consist of fewer, wider door leaves with bigger panes of glass. Bi-fold doors have more door leaves, each with a frame around them.
There are design options to consider also. Bifold doors can be designed so that all the leaves stack to one side or you can choose to have some stacking to one side and some to the other.
You can also choose whether the leaves open inwards or outwards. Many people choose to have the doors opening outwards so that if the doors are wet after rain, they can be opened without the rainwater dripping onto the carpet.
Of course a sliding door needs no such considerations as they open and close along the track; though you can choose which doors slide and which are fixed.
And there is ease of use. Most people expect a large sliding door to require a bit of effort to open; certainly this is the case for many standard sliding doors, although it does not have to be so.
Reynaers’ lift-and-slide doors offer a state-of-the-art solution whereby the door is fitted with a slightly longer handle and a very clever sliding mechanism. Turning the handle through 180° lifts the door by a few millimetres and so reduces the friction between the door leaf and the frame. This makes it possible to open even a large door leaf with the lightest of touches.
