Why Choose Bifold Doors?
Bifold doors are a very popular choice because they let in a lot of extra light into your home. They are also a great way to save some space in tight areas and make small rooms seem larger.
Because of their design, they let in a lot of natural light which will freshen up your room, especially in the winter months. They are an especially good option when it comes to external doors, because of their ability to be secure.
One of the main advantages over sliding doors is that with bifolding doors, you can moreorless open up the whole of your room to the garden in the summer months, whereas with sliding doors, one of the doors has to remain fixed/unopened.
Are Origin Bifold Doors Secure?
Origin bifold doors are secure for many reasons.
They are actually just as secure as regular patio doors or French doors and more secure in some instances.
Most bifold door systems have a multi-point locking system which can even make them more secure than regular doors. They are also installed on an in-line tracking system that a potential intruder will not be able to lift off the tracks.
The doors are attached to the track with a gear, so an intruder would have to make a lot of noise and spend a lot of time removing the gear before they would be able to access your home. Because burglars understand this concept, they know bifold doors are not an easy target. It usually takes longer to access a home from a bifold door entrance than a different kind of door.
While bifold doors have a multi-point locking system, they typically only have three or five points. Origin bifold doors are even more secure because they employ an eight-point locking system that is unique to their brand.
Glazing is also something that comes standard for bifold doors. There are many different options when it comes to glazing, but using double-glazing is the standard option. This serves several purposes. It is a great way to help with the energy efficiency of your home. Double-glazing also adds a level of sturdiness to your door which adds greater protection to your home.
How Do I Choose the Right Bifold Door?
Even if you know that you want to install bifold doors in your home, you may still be unsure about how to narrow down your choices. You will obviously have to make decisions about color and design that fit in with your house’s aesthetic, but the choices you will have to make will go far beyond that as well.
One of the most important things you will need to decide when it comes to security for your bifold doors is the kind of locks it will have on it. Lock systems help to keep possible intruders out of your home, but it also needs to be easy to operate for you and your family.
Origin bifold doors use heavy-duty zinc hinges so they are secure and resistant to attacks, even from experienced intruders. Using a cylinder lock has been shown to prevent common attacks like picking, drilling, bumping, and snapping. Knowing your doors are secure against all kinds of attacks will help you feel safe in your home.
Deadbolts are usually installed as a standard feature for a bifold door system. They can be controlled either with a twisting lock on the door or with a key. These will usually be a perfectly secure option to use with your bifold doors to make them secure. If you have small children, then you may also want to look into child-proof locks. There are many varieties that give you options to fit the needs of your family.
What is Glazing?
As mentioned briefly above, glazing is another way you can add a little extra security to your bifold door system. Glazing makes glass tougher which will protect against accidents and help you reduce your energy bills as well. It also adds another level of security to your doors. Adding more levels of security to your home can also help you get a better UK home insurance policy for your home.
Can I Add More Security?
If you still want to add more layers of security to your bifold doors, there are some options. You can use security screens which are mesh screens installed behind or in front of the doors. This means you can keep the doors open when it is warm outside without losing security. The screen can also help keep the flies out!
It is also possible to add a security system to a set of bifold doors that will alert you if the doors are tampered with in some way. Laminated glass will add a layer of vinyl between the sheets of glass that protect against glass cutters. It is impact-resistant, so it is harder to break and is less dangerous when broken.
