Introduction of folding doors

Among the various door designs, folding doors are another type of doors commonly used in interior design and are becoming more and more popular today due to their modern features, versatility and functionality. So, one may still ask, "What is a folding door and what is the difference between a flush door and a sliding door?"



The difference between folding doors and sliding doors

Folding doors, also known as bi-fold doors or hexagonal accordion doors, are inspired by a musical instrument called the hexagonal accordion because of its similar characteristics to the instrument. This type of door consists of multiple panels or sections that can be opened and folded on the inside or outside. When you open the door, each panel will fold back and stack on top of each other. It can also be moved to the side that allows you to have more space. Thus, these unique features mark a huge difference from traditional French doors and sliding doors.


Benefits of folding doors

In modern home design, folding doors are the most common and are widely used as interior or exterior room dividers. Folding doors act as a separator between two rooms or between a room and an outdoor space. There is no doubt that folding doors are a great option and solution for those who need more space. While traditional swing and sliding doors can only open to a certain extent, folding doors with folding technology can be easily folded and extended to maximize the opening space. Compared to swing and sliding doors, folding doors allow for greater entrance access and easier transitions between two rooms. Folding doors are effective space savers, adding convenience and comfort to life.

On the other hand, contrary to most traditional doors that are restricted to a specific width and size, most folding doors can be adapted to different space requirements and room layouts. They can be customized to suit the location of use and can be several meters wide, making them easier to use and more practical.



In summary

Despite the many advantages of folding doors, you must remember that when you consider specifying and installing folding doors in your home, you are actually looking to replace most of your walls with glass. If the doors are of poor quality, you run the risk of bringing rainwater into your home because they are not airtight and watertight enough. This will hurt the efficiency of your property. Poor quality doors will wear out quickly, affecting the performance and operation of the door or even permanently damaging it. It is therefore important to do your research beforehand to ensure that only high quality components are used when choosing a door.
