What is a Bifold Traffic Door?

NOW Bifolding Doors doors can increase the opening to a property by up to 90%. This seamlessly blends your inside living space with the outside, creating an open plan living area and flooding your home in natural light.

However, one common aspect homeowners are often concerned about is having to fully fold the door panels when they want to use them. This can be solved simply by adding a traffic door.

So, what’s a traffic door?
Basically, a traffic door works just like a traditional door but is built into your bifold door. It’s purpose is simply to give you easy access in and out of your home or property.

Why is a traffic door in bifolds useful to have?
In the Summer months, you will reap the benefits of a set of NOW Aluminium bifold doors as they perfectly join your home and garden. However, as we know, the British weather quickly changes! In the Winter months, the last thing you want to do is let the elements in by fully opening your bifolds. Traffic doors cut out this problem and minimise the opening, providing quick and easy access inside and outside a property.

Are traffic doors always needed?
No, you don’t have to have a traffic door if you don’t need one. You may have a separate entrance route such as a kitchen or utility door. Also, you may be keen on maximum panel size which may lead to an even number of panels and prefer not to have a handle on the outside – in these circumstances, a traffic door isn’t necessary.
