Internal bi-folding doors can be a unique asset to any house hold, creating a temporary barrier between two rooms, whilst being able to at a moment’s notice create one large expanse by opening them up. Internal bi-fold doors are different in that the bottom rail is in fact embedded into the floor so that there is no step or sill that would interfere movement between the rooms, making them as unobtrusive as possible and indeed creating one large room.

The mechanism of bi-folding doors is often compared to the musical instrument, the ‘concertina’.
This reed produces sounds as mechanisms fold in on each other, and that’s exactly how bi-folding doors work!
Each door panel folds onto the next, allowing them to slide and stack neatly to one or both sides. They operate by sliding along a track, typically installed at the top and bottom of the door frame.
The design ensures that the doors can be opened fully, partially, or remain closed, providing flexibility in how the space is used.
