As the seasons move towards fireworks night and the Winter, take a look at some of the reasons why NOW Aluminium Bi Folding Doors are the perfect addition to your home despite the colder weather.
Bi folding doors are often seen as being a Summer addition to the home – allowing open plan living and effortlessly transitioning the interior and exterior space. It sets the perfect scene for entertaining guests, such as a dedicated BBQ or dining area. In the changeable autumn and winter months, you may find you are opening the doors less and less, so what benefit do NOW Aluminium doors serve during this time of year?
Slim Frames increase light
As you’re probably aware, you’ll be leaving for work in the dark and returning I the dark. The precious little light you get at the weekend you will be wanting to maximise – natural light makes most of us feel better. In fact, it’s medically proven that Seasonal Affective Disorder (or SAD) affects many millions each year. You can go for walks throughout your lunch hour, but at weekends what better way to increase the level of natural light than to replace entire walls with a bifold door system? When closed, this will dramatically increase natural light levels in your home.
Insulate your home
Contrary to what you may think, door made out of glass can massively improve the thermal retention of a particular wall or living space. If you select a glazed NW1 Aluminium Bifolding Door system, it will come with Planitherm high-performance thermal glazing as standard – this easily exceeds building regs, achieving U values as low as 1.4 which will retain the heat and even lower your energy bills in the winter months.
Winter scenes during the day and Fireworks at night!
Even with the doors closed for a majority of time, concertina doors help retain the connection with the outside allowing a view throughout the day, from dawn until dusk. In fact, some of our customers suggest that they prefer the winter scenes to the summer ones! Having that visual connection to the outside can help many feel more relaxed and sleep better – in fact, it’s one of the most noted methods of coping with SAD. What’s more, with bonfire night just 3 nights away, it will provide uninterrupted views of local fireworks displays or even an up-close view of a family fireworks show or bonfire in the garden without having to bear the freezing cold weather or typical English rain!
