Over the last ten years, the residential patio door market has changed dramatically. In many cases, homeowners have chosen bifold doors over more traditional sliding doors or French doors. Many homeowners, however, have been frustrated with the problems they’ve encountered when using bifold doors. Fortunately, there is now an alternative to bifold doors which takes the best points of bifold and sliding doors and injects some new innovations into the design. This alternative is New Wave Doors.
Why are New Wave Doors better than bifolds?
Bifold doors, as the blog title suggests, are designed to slide, turn, and stack, concertina style to one side when the door system is fully opened. Although this design creates a wide opening space, seamlessly connecting interior and exterior living space, it definitely has its limitations. With bifold doors, when one door panel is moved, all the others slide along because they are permanently connected to each other. This design can prove heavy to use and often puts too much strain on the sliding system resulting in damage.
With New Wave Doors, on the other hand, each door panel can be moved completely independently to provide the best versatility available today. New Wave Doors are designed to maximise user experience. They are versatile and smooth sliding, putting minimal stress on the operating system. Like a bifold door they can be fully opened but unlike a bifold door, with a New Wave Door, you can simply open as much or as little of the door as you wish. When closed New Wave Door sliding panels fully interlock from top to bottom with each other to create a much more secure door than bifolds or standard sliding doors.
