Hardware is complex with bifold doors and must be precision engineered from quality materials besides being fitted just right during installation. Improper alignment can affect performance and cause stress on frames besides making the door hard to open and close. Quality systems have wheels that run on flat tracks and pivoted end doors for smooth movement even when the jamb does not allow much adjustment. Bifold door installation is important too when it comes to getting the threshold right to prevent rain seepage and yet creating a smooth transition that does not cause one to stub one’s toes. Rain penetration is an important matter especially if the door is exposed. This is where the expertise of installer comes into play to provide a perfectly rebated rain-proof threshold. Security is another aspect to consider in the matter of bifold door hardware and a typical secure door would have multipoint locking system with shoot bolt for intermediate panels.
Don’t make the mistake of choosing design over functionality. Selecting a durable yet lightweight material for the kitchen doors is an absolute necessity. These doors are considered to be the most used thing in your kitchen. Therefore, settle down for a design that will make your accessibility to the cabinets easier than ever.
Composite door sets made from fibreglass are becoming increasingly popular. Designed to resemble timber, they are manufactured from a mixture of glass fibres and resin and are supplied complete with a steel and PVC reinforced frame. Weather resistant and low maintenance, these doors come in a variety of colours, require no protective treatment and provide a realistic-looking alternative to timber versions. They are also lighter than wooden doors, making them easier to hang, and will not warp or split. Another low maintenance option is PVC. This heavy-duty plastic is still widely used for sliding patio doors, but is less favoured for front doors nowadays due to its relatively flimsy construction and synthetic appearance.
