What is the Best Choice for External Doors?

Apart from traditional front doors, the most common external doors are those that open into a garden or patio area. These we refer to as patio doors. Whilst in the past the term patio doors generally referred exclusively to sliding doors, nowadays it is used to describe a wide range of external doors including French Doors and Bi Fold Doors. These are available in a wide range of styles and are constructed using a variety of alternative materials.

The Benefits of Having a Traffic Door in Your Bifold Doors

While bifold doors offer an elegant and functional solution for merging your internal living space and the outside world, providing the maximum open area and the most light, there are also some disadvantages: when internally locked you can’t get in from the outside; and you might not wish to open up the door in cold or inclement weather. These problems can be avoided, however, by designing in a traffic door.
