Bi-fold Doors WeatherTight™

Bifolds are a great way to extend your living space in the summer by giving you an unobstructed opening to any outdoor living and entertainment areas allowing a greater sense of indoor-outdoor living.

Where you have an uneven number of panels, it is a good idea to include a hinged door. This allows convenient exit or entry without opening up the entire Bifold.

Bifolds are available as standard or in a Inline version, which folds back flush with the exterior cladding.
