Steel Look Bifolding Doors featured in Build It

Are bifold doors right for your project?


Bifolding doors are one of the most popular options to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor environments. Bifolding doors come in a choice of designs, from slim framed minimalistic systems to steel look bifolds that have a crisscrossing glazing bar design.

Choosing between bifolding and sliding doors is usually the hardest decision when it comes to choosing the right glazing system for large openings. There are many benefits to each system and it really comes down to which is the best option for the needs of the homeowners. When choosing between these glazing systems, one of the main elements to consider is how often the bifolds will be pushed back fully to open the whole aperture (especially in the UK).

Emily Brooks from Build It Magazine explains that with bifolding doors “you’ll get a lot of framing… this can be perceived as an irritant when it comes to sightlines” because with sliding doors you can achieve a very minimalistic finish which enables the homeowners to enjoy uninterrupted views of their garden all year round – however you cannot open up the whole aperture like you can with bifolds.


Emily Brooks goes on to explain “If the thickness of the frame is a problem, then there are ultra-slim versions available but at a slightly higher price point… for extra tall bifolds, look at Sieger® Systems” new Super Lux Bifolding Door which can achieve heights of 3,000mm plus – something that is usually only available with sliders”.

Sieger® Systems was featured on page 85 in the August 2019 edition of Build It Magazine in an article that discussed all the benefits and options for bifolding doors. Quarrendon Street’s aluminium bifolding doors were featured within this article to showcase the design possibilities available with bifold doors. The Sieger® Legacy Bifolds was the centrepiece of this residential renovation in London to achieve a steel look aesthetic.
