Sliding & Folding Doors

Sliding Doors


If you're thinking about replacing your old sliding doors or extending your home, wooden lift and slide patio doors can be an excellent alternative. Sliding doors can be made with much larger glass panels compared to French Doors or Bi-folding doors, making them an ideal choice to enjoy a clear view. If you're looking to create a large glazed area, sliding doors are the way to go.

Unlike bi-folding doors, sliding doors have far less frame in your sight line. The larger glass area will let in more light, and it will allow you to feel like you're merging the inside with the outside, even when the doors are closed. If you have a smaller property, a lift and slide patio door can also save space. They're a perfect option for balconies, small patios, or terraces. The sliding action of the doors means that there is no hinged or folding mechanism like a swing door or a folding door.

Bifold & Folding Doors


Bifold doors, also known as folding doors, have become increasingly popular as they offer a great way to seamlessly blend your living space with your garden or to create a removable room divider. Unlike sliding doors, bifold doors consist of panels that fold up neatly against the wall. They typically have between two to seven panels connected by hinges and attached to rollers at the top or bottom. 

Most bifold doors feature a traffic door at one end, which opens like a standard entrance door, allowing continued use of the bifold throughout colder months without having to push all the panels back. Bifold doors are famous for their ability to offer spectacular views by opening up large spaces without frames or part of the window left in place. 
Our Accoya bifold doors are made to order and are perfect for external use in balconies and patios, whether you are replacing existing doors or they are part of a new build extension. Accoya is a highly durable material and comes with a 50-year guarantee.
