When you’re choosing a set of folding sliding doors or any other style of aluminium doors, there are a few things you may want to consider before making your final decision, such as the orientation of your property or the direction in which your sliding doors fold.
Your Home Orientation
A-rated glass doors are designed to maximise the energy gained from the sun. If you are deciding on putting large folding sliding doors in a bright south-facing room, you may find that this makes the room uncomfortably warm in the summer. In this case, it may be a better option to install folding sliding doors with a low U-value, which means they will be good at preserving heat in the winter.
Taking this point into consideration can actually save you money on your heating bills in the long run which is why it’s important to check your home orientation before installing your new sliding doors.
An Additional Traffic Door?
One of the other considerations when deciding on a set of sliding folding doors is whether fitting a traffic door is right for your home. The number of door leafs will be dictated by the size of the opening, but it is worth considering the benefits of choosing a design with a traffic door.
Designs with an odd number of door leafs, usually include a traffic door which is a single door leaf that can be opened without unlocking the rest of the door leafs, operating just like a normal back door. This is convenient for when you just want to quickly go out into the garden without the hassle of opening all of the door leafs.
