Bi-fold doors have the advantage that they can fully open up for almost the entire aperture.
The idea of opening up the whole space on a hot sunny day can be tremendously appealing.

had a large 3 pane sliding door and side glazing unit supplied and fitted by Marlin Windows... we were really impressed with the products on offer and the advice provided... delighted with the end result. The service provided throughout was first class, they went above and beyond to help us.
Designs and configuration should always be within the safe limits of the sliding door system which is governed by width, height and weight.
As a general guide the maximum sliding patio door width is 6 metres with a maximum panel width of 3 metres and a height of 2.5 metres.
Expansive walls of glass are attainable however, the overall width of the doors should not exceed 6m.
Low threshold options allow us to create the appearance of a seamless transition between the inside and out.
The continuous connection is achieved with a step free low threshold that delivers a fully accessible patio to enjoy.

Marlin have just completed the installation of a series of sliding doors. We are delighted with the finished product. All our other professional contractors on site have commented how impressed they are with the Marlin product quality & finish.
We have no hesitation in recommending Marlin & can only thank them again for their superb service.
Powder coating means a huge range of colours and textures are available including stunning anodised finishes and textured paint.
We can mix it up by choosing a different colour on the inside to out.
View the extensive range of RAL colours along with two ranges of textured paint finishes here.
Look for glazing with a U value of 1.8W/m²K or lower.
This ensures glazing exceeds the minimum thermal requirement for Building Regulations and as such will be an efficient insulator against adverse weather.
Ensure your doors include a protected locking system, such as the Avocet Break Secure (ABS) lock, which incorporates the latest technology, is incredibly secure and which burglars can't get past.
Look for the 'Secure By Design' logo.
Visoglide Plus is the most popular and recommended external sliding door system.
