Bifold Doors

Make the most of your opening by choosing McNaughton Bifolding doors. They can transform a space, bringing the outdoors in and creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living areas. Here are some of the key features of bifold doors:

  • Folding Design: Bifold doors are designed to fold back on themselves, with each panel stacking neatly against the adjacent panel. This design allows for a wide opening that can be customised to suit the needs of the space. We also offer a foldback option.


  • Space-Saving: The folding design of bifold doors means that they take up minimal space when open, making them an ideal choice for smaller areas where space is at a premium.


Overall, bifold doors are a stylish and practical option for anyone looking to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living spaces. With their folding design, large glass panels, and customisable configurations, they are a popular choice for homeowners and businesses alike.
