Configurations

Common configurations for our external doors and windows.

Configurations - Bi-fold Doors

A bi-fold door can accommodate many tastes, applications and building requirements.

There are over 100 opening styles, including: inward opening, outward opening, stacking to the left, stacking to the right and stacking both ways. Opening configurations ranging from two panels one way to ten panels both ways. You can also choose between inline and corner door options, and not forgetting you can choose between aluminum, hardwood timber, aluminum & timber, Vinyl & GlassIIEdge™ material options.

Bi-fold configurations at a glance
  • Over 100 opening styles, inc. inward and outward opening options
  • Both inward AND outward opening (dual opening) available
  • Left stacking, right stacking and stacking both ways
  • Configuration ranges from two panels one way to ten panels both ways
  • Configurations can incorporate an access door (traffic door/swing panel) or French doors
  • Available as inline or corner door sets

IMPORTANT NOTE: Bi-fold doors and Bi-fold windows are always viewed from the inside, so when ordering always give the opening direction of your door as you look at it from the inside.

Stacking Options

How will your doors stack when in use? Where will you have most room? Panels can stack inside or inside (or both) and locate left or right or both. These are things to consider when designing your bi-fold doors around your home.

Traffic Door/Access Door

A traffic door is an every day access door, that can be used independently without having to open all of the door set and behaves like a traditional door.

Bi-fold doors fold in pairs. In general an uneven number of panels will result in an extra panel that can be used as a traffic door. A three panel configuration access door for example naturally falls to the left or right.

Illustration 1 shows: three panels in one direction feature a bi-fold and an ACCESS DOOR. Illustration 2 shows: four panels in one direction feature two bi-folds but no access door.

Open In/Open Out

The beauty about bi-fold doors is you can choose whether to open your doors either inwards or outwards or even both!

You may have more room outside or an unused corner that will comfortable accommodate an open in option.

Inline or Corner Doors

You can choose a regular (inline) configuration, or choose a corner configuration.

With both options you still get to choose the number of panels (subject to minimum/maximum size constraints of course) and the panel configuration.
