Folding Sliding Doors:- Let the outside in; with stylePublished on 3rd May 2012
Over the past few years Folding Sliding doors have become highly fashionable; allowing for the illusion of an uninterrupted flow from home to garden, across the bespoke conservatory market. Innovative as ever Apropos offers many styles of Folding Sliding doors; all fitted with ultra-slim frames, an industry exclusive at just 50mm wide. Many materials can be used in manufacturing Folding Sliding doors however all Apropos Folding Sliding doors are created using powder coated aluminium which is treated by our in house powder coating technology therefore achieving a minimalistic, modern look whilst able to withstand all harsh weather conditions.
“…Although many clients choose Folding Sliding doors as an addition to their Apropos conservatory or orangery they can also be fitted into existing rooms, either as a replacement for outdated windows or in order to open the room up: producing the idea of extra space as well as generating more natural light.”
Folding Sliding doors create a unique concertina effect allowing for a whole wall to be opened out either inwards or outwards, although outward folding doors are often considered more weather resistant, depending upon the structures requirements or the customer’s request. Another important decision to consider when choosing your Folding Sliding doors is which way your doors will be stacked upon opening: as Apropos offers both right and left Folding Sliding doors as well as symmetrical stacking. Conveniently Folding Sliding doors will also be fitted with a designated ‘traffic door’ for entering and exiting when the concertina doors are not in use. This concertina can be created to fit the individuals bespoke desires and may consist of as few or as many door panels as needed; meaning that each set are shaped perfectly toward the client’s vision.
Although many clients choose Folding Sliding doors as an addition to their Apropos conservatory or orangery they can also be fitted into existing rooms, either as a replacement for outdated windows or in order to open the room up: producing the idea of extra space as well as generating more natural light. The desirability of Folding Sliding Doors often comes from this illumination and many choose them, as an addition to their homes, to generate a brighter space and make the most of both their property and garden by merging the two. The result is a room where both garden and home can be enjoyed in unison and alfresco living is a constantly blissful reality.
Although, inevitably once you’ve got alfresco living in such easy reach you may be tempted to rejuvenate your garden areas. Some new planting, a strategically placed patio area and a selection of smart garden furniture, a whimsical porch swing or some well tailored blinds can work wonders and the space you’ll create – along with the flow from interior to exterior – will be well worth it.Return to Blog
