The glass doors generally come in many mechanisms and styles, from sliding & hinged, to pivoting, folding, and stacking, and many more. Thus, how do you choose which of the glass doors are well suited for your home? We will consider some types of the glass doors and benefits.
HINGED SINGLE DOOR
The hinged door is most traditional choice, with the swivelling hinge at one side of door frame and enabling other side of a door to open from wall. The single hinged door will open inwards, outwards and both and is for the internal or the external use.
The hinged doors are framed and frameless and, since these 2 images demonstrate, every offer different look. Selection of the door handle contributes to overall look & style of a door.
The French doors are the pair of the singled hinged doors, which open away from one another. Traditionally, they’ve the multiple timber glass panels & swing inwards, today, anything goes. It is used for interior & exterior doors, and provide elegant transition between the rooms and the spaces.
The French doors fill wider opening than single door and space needed in the front of opening is halved, just needing to be width of a door, not full opening.
Like single doors, they are used to maximise space of opening.
The Bi-fold doors can be made up of series of the individual folding panels, like single hinged doors, will be framed and frameless. They’re normally made up of 2 and more hinged panels, which fold and concertina along sill track, and are pushed to both sides of structural opening.
The Bi-fold doors will help to create illusion of larger interior, since wall opening doesn’t have any obstructive structural posts.
