It is inevitable that you will be enticed by the entire aïr range; however you may find it difficult choosing between a bi-folding door or sliding door.
Your decision-making may be made a little easier once you have an understanding of some of the respective benefits of these two captivating door styles:
An aïr sliding door runs straight along a track and doesn’t open outwards, so it is a space saving solution.
You get a high glass to frame ratio in a sliding door and can therefore expect lots of natural light to travel through into your living space and profit from the most amazing uninterrupted views.
Sliding doors are generally chosen ahead of bi-folding doors when there is a significantly large aperture available.

The individual door leafs that comprise a bi-folding door can be completely concertinaed to one side so that you can fully open a wall and generate a complete opening into the outdoors.
They can open inwards or outwards. An outwards opening will be particularly beneficial if you want to maximise space indoors.
Bi-folding doors can dramatically increase the resale valuation of your home as they’re highly regarded by buyers.
