"It was hard to decide who to place our order with as there are so many Internet companies selling bi-folding doors and all claiming to be the best. Our builder recommended the Glass Door Centre and after checking prices we went with them as they were amongst the cheapest selling the Korniche doors. Everything turned up on time and the new doors look great. Thanks to Albert for his help & advice."

What is the best configuration for a bifold door?
Most homeowners prefer to have what is called a ‘traffic door’ which is a single door that can be easily opened without the need to open any of the other doors. The best way to achieve a traffic door is to select an odd number of doors. It is possible to have a four and six bifold door set with a traffic door but the doors do not fold to one side which for some, looks more aesthetically pleasing.
Should my bifold doors open inwards or outwards?
Most people tend to open bifold doors outwards for two main reasons. Reason one is if it’s been raining, and the doors are wet on the outside, they won’t drip onto your flooring when open.
