If you’re thinking of adding a bifold glass door to your commercial project, you’ve probably got a few questions before you commit. Folding glass doors can make a significant impact in various spaces, and there’s a huge variety of types and uses. Here’s a look at the most frequently asked questions surrounding these doors so you can make the best decision for your project.
Will Bifold Doors Add Value To My Property?
Exterior folding glass doors allow more light to filter your building, making it look bigger and more open. Plenty of natural light is a selling point for renters, tenants, and other guests. Easy access to a well-kept patio or beautiful garden area can also add to your property’s value.
How Do I Clean My Bifold Glass Door?
Cleaning a bifold glass door is as easy as cleaning a window. For exterior doors, clean the inside first. Spray a window cleaner onto the door and wipe it off with a microfiber cloth. You can also use a squeegee to remove the cleaning solution if you prefer. Once the door is clean, buff it dry with a clean, dry cloth.
If your bifold door is used as a shower door, cleaning might take a few extra steps. First, spray the door with vinegar and let it sit for ten minutes. Then use a sponge and some baking soda to scrub the glass clean. Heavy buildup might require a few treatments of vinegar and baking soda. Follow with window cleaner, wipe off, and buff dry.
How Much Space Does a Folding Glass Door Take?
The answer to this question will vary depending on the size of your door, but the good news is that it takes less space than you think. Its space-saving nature is one of the most significant benefits of folding glass doors. They are ideal in small bathrooms and patios where you don’t have extra space to store a large swinging door.
Can You Have More Than Two Panels In a Bifold Glass Door?
Most folding glass doors you see have two panels, but many have more. The doors can be custom-made to fit your space and style with as many panels as is needed. Multisection doors work well for large openings, while smaller openings and shower doors typically only require two panels.
Are Exterior Bifold Doors Secure?
It might seem like having exterior glass doors would be a security nightmare, but that’s not the case at all. The glass used in exterior folding doors is toughened so it doesn’t break like typical glass would. Tough glass with a heavy frame and multi-point locking system makes folding glass doors every bit as safe and secure as a standard door.
