Bifold doors boast elegance and style, and with their practical features, will revolutionise your home space. They are aesthetic and modern, are hugely functional for accessibility, with low thresholds and wider openings for wheelchairs, pushchairs and pets, and are energy efficient and weatherproof. Bifold doors’ concertina design also works as a space saver, compared to hinged doors which need 90 degrees in order to open fully.
However, perhaps their biggest benefit, aluminium bifold doors provide unmatched security to your home.
The Security Benefits of Our Bifold Doors
Aluminium Bifold Doors
Aluminium is ideal for bifolding doors, as it is known for its strength and durability, therefore making aluminium bifold doors a great option for added security. They are difficult to bend, and with the added security measures that come included in the bifold doors, you would be making the best choice for your home security.
Our aluminium bifold doors are tested to PAS 24 standards, therefore providing the highest standard of protection against forced entry into your home. We also use glass with thickness of up to 45mm, which aids security measures by providing a thicker layer of protection. As our bifold doors are also bespoke to fit your home, this also ensures maximum security with a custom created frame, rather than a one size fits all, which may not provide the same level of security measure.
How to Secure Bifold Doors
Here at Glideline, we provide aluminium bifold doors, and one of our most asked questions is how to secure bifold doors.
Our bifold doors are installed with multi-point locking systems, allowing a high level of locking security to your home. We also offer a range of different styles of lock mechanisms, allowing you to choose which you feel would be best suited to your home’s security needs.
Our bifold doors are also fitted with reinforced hinges, and in some of our high end aluminium bifold door options, anti-lift mechanisms and concealed hardware to provide an even higher level of security for your home.
To also aid security, we also suggest installing blinds or curtains as an extra security measure to ensure the inside of your home is not visible to others outside of the home, and avoid leaving any valuables in view of the bifold doors to avoid attempted forced entry. Also ensuring all doors are locked when not in use would be suggested to avoid unwarranted entry. A home alarm system may also be beneficial in an effort to avoid security breaches, and would add a further peace of mind to you and your home.
At Glideline, we want to provide the best for your, or your customers, home. By investing in our bifold doors, and by understanding how to secure bifold doors, you are investing in the safety of your home.
