What’s nice about bi-fold doors is that when they’re open, the panels stack up against the walls leaving
the whole space wide open. Like their bigger cousins,
bi-fold doors can virtually pull a room outdoors.
These types of windows have been used commercially for many years in restaurants and bars, but they’re now finding their way into our homes. Bi-fold windows are often found between porches and outdoor living spaces, but they’re also suitable wherever fresh air
and unobstructed views are welcomed.
LIFT & SLIDE
The advantage of a lift and slide door is that the rollers the door glides on can be retracted so the entire weight of the door rests on the ground, creating a tight, energy-efficient seal.
This is a smart feature, especially in colder climates. A lever is used to push the rollers back out, which lifts the door off the ground so it can once again glide along its track. When lifted, the weather-stripping completely clears the sill, making a lift
and slide door exceptionally easy to open and close.
Standard multi-slide doors rely on a raised sill to create a weather resistant seal between the floor and the bottom of the door. Because a lift and slide door rests on the ground when closed, there is no gap that needs to be protected by a channel in the sill, which makes a raised sill unnecessary and allows the sill to sit flush with the flooring.
Eliminating a raised sill creates a virtually seamless transition from inside to the outdoors and minimizes trip hazards.
