The entire assembly is enclosed within uPVC or aluminium frames. These frames are incorporated into the main frame of the sliding doors. Such frames can also be retrofitted into existing sliding doors to give interiors a new, pleasantly polished look not to speak of the convenience that this type of blinds for sliding doors provides. It could be and possibly is the best option for sliding doors.
If one considers installation of new bifolds then it is best to order such doors with integral blinds. Functionality and aesthetics improve with such integrated blinds. If one already has single paned bifolds then it is a good idea to get a retrofit of double glazing with integrated blinds. It does represent some investment but the lasting improvements will give so much ease of use as well as value addition to the house. The current trend is towards minimalism and clean, neat lines in interiors. Integral blinds exemplify this trend, resolving all aesthetic and practical considerations in one simple, single stroke.
The easiest way to keep your little ones from accessing things they shouldn’t is by adding a lock or bolt on to the door or cabinet of your choice. I personally went for antique bronze door bolts over locks as they were more in keeping with the tone of the house, and to be honest they looked easier to fit. However when fitting the bolt or lock, I would highly recommend you attach it where it is out of reach. When I first installed the bolts in the bathroom, I was naïve to think that with a bolt on the door the kids wouldn’t be able to get in. I’ll never forget the day when I walked into the bathroom and my youngest was sitting on the floor holding the bottle of toilet bleach. Luckily she couldn’t get past the twisted cap, but in that moment I had realised that the bolts needed to be a lot higher. That evening my husband came home and after he helped me put the kids to bed, we went round the house and moved all of the bolts up higher. Since then I have had peace of mind knowing my cheeky little monsters can’t reach substances that are hazardous to their health’s.
