Sierra Bifold Doorset

Description

Bi-fold doorsets offer a combination of functionality, versatility, and aesthetic appeal, making them a popular choice for creating expansive openings and providing stylish solutions connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.

Indoor-Outdoor Connectivity: Bi-fold doorsets are commonly used to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living areas such as gardens, patios, decks, and poolside areas. When fully opened, they provide an unobstructed view and easy access to the outdoors, enhancing the sense of space and openness.

Space Optimization: Bi-fold doorsets are designed to fold and stack neatly to one or both sides of the door opening when opened fully. This folding mechanism allows for maximum space utilization, making them ideal for areas with limited indoor or outdoor space.

Flexible Configuration: Bi-fold doorsets consist of multiple panels that are hinged together. Depending on the design and configuration, they can be folded inwards or outwards, allowing for various opening options to suit different preferences and spatial constraints.

Enhanced Natural Light and Ventilation: Similar to sliding patio doors, bi-fold doorsets often feature large glass panels that allow ample natural light to penetrate indoor spaces. When partially opened, they also provide ventilation, allowing fresh air to flow into the building.

Versatile Design Options: Bi-fold doorsets come in various designs, materials, finishes, and configurations to complement different architectural styles and interior décors. They can be customized with features such as grid patterns, decorative glass, and hardware finishes to achieve a desired aesthetic look.

Accessibility: Bi-fold doorsets offer easy access for individuals with mobility challenges, as they require minimal effort to operate. This makes them suitable for use in residential homes, commercial buildings, and public spaces where accessibility is important.

Energy Efficiency: High-quality bi-fold doorsets are designed with energy-efficient features such as insulated glass, thermal breaks, and weatherstripping to minimize heat loss or gain. This helps improve indoor comfort and reduce energy costs associated with heating and cooling.

Security: Bi-fold doorsets are equipped with secure locking mechanisms and hardware to ensure the safety and security of the building. Options for multi-point locking systems and toughened glass provide added protection against intrusions.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live.

SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification – provides a recognised standard for all security products that can deter and reduce crime.  This includes domestic windows and doors, and the components within them such as locks, hinges etc.

Janex is a registered member of Secured by Design and many of our products have been tested to meet the demands of the standard.

A U-Value, in simple terms, indicates how well your window will be at retaining the internal heat within your property and preventing it from escaping to the outside.  U-Values are measured in Watts per square metre, or W/m2 K. The lower the U-Value number, the better the heat retention of the window. All new or replacement windows require a minimum U Value of 1.6 W/m2 K. 

Ask your Janex consultant for further details and they’ll be only too happy to help.

It is very rare that you’ll need permission to replace your existing windows and doors. However, you will need to check to see if you are located in a conservation area as you may be restricted with what designs or materials you are allowed to use this may also be the case if your property is a listed building.

Absolutely! All of our windows and doors are made to measure and can be tailored to your requirements. This includes choosing from a range of colours, finishes and styles.

‘Engineered’ timber is the key to the strength and long-lasting properties of our windows and doors. It is created through a very old technique of layering wood sections with the grain of one section in the opposing direction to the grain of its neighbour.
