Concertina door combinations have always been a popular choice of door either as a patio door or as a way of opening up the side of a conservatory. However, they have almost always proved cost prohibitive due to the lengthy manufacturing time and complicated operating systems.
In recent months we have been asked more and more about concertina or bi-folding door combinations from consumers in Nottingham and Derby. After lengthy research we have found a suitable operating system that is far cheaper than other systems we have looked at and with this new system, our existing Deceuninck profiles can be used to fabricate the doors. This cuts down the manufacturing time and also means we can take advantage of the discounts we have with the Deceuninck system. It also means that the door can be fabricated to in 60mm or 70mm profiles in white, rosewood, mahogany or light oak....we can blend the Bi-Folding door profile in to any of our installations in Nottingham or Derby.
The operating systems is where the leap forward has been made and with this new hardware the bi-folding / concertina doors can be made in almost any combination from a full bi-folding / concertina door to a single door combined with a concertina door.
The main advantage of this bi-folding door is that it can be used to completely open up an aperture either from the house or from the conservatory without the constraints of French doors and sliding doors (i.e. size constraints and a constricted opening space). Not only will it give a feeling of light and space but it will also bring the garden into the conservatory, perfect for summer barbeques and for people who really enjoy the outdoors.
While this type of bi-folding / concertina door has made a huge leap forward and is much cheaper than it used to be it is still more expensive than French or sliding doors but we think the benefits of this type of door far outweigh the difference in price.
