Types of Folding Doors
Folding doors are lighter than regular doors and are actually space savers because you can just move them to the side without trying to make space for them like a regular door. The most common types of folding doors are as follows:
- Folding glass doors (exterior) – these doors come in different sizes and width. They are good for that modern look in your house and are ideal if you prefer that open look.
- Folding patio doors –These doors are ideal because they do not take up a lot of space and are pleasing to look at, both open and closed.
- Folding French doors – these doors are somewhat similar to folding glass doors and patio doors. French doors have equal panels on their glass and may either be wide or thin. They can also be good as an interior door and can give your house that quaint ambiance.
- Accordion folding doors – these doors are patterned like the accordion wherein their folds are very near each other giving off that appearance of an accordion. They are interior doors that are used mainly as dividers but have now been used as doors and space savers. Although the majority of accordion doors are made out of wood, others are made out of different materials like glass, aluminum, metal, and vinyl. Their prices also vary depending on the materials used.
