Questions about 9ft Bifold Doors

What is Low E Toughened Double Glazing?

Low E toughened double glazing refers to a specific type of energy-efficient double-glazed glass used in windows and doors. It combines two essential features: low-emissivity (Low E) coating and toughened glass. Here's a brief explanation of each component:

  • Low E (Low-Emissivity) Coating: Low E coatings are thin, transparent layers of metal oxide applied to one of the glass surfaces within the double-glazed unit. The primary function of the Low E coating is to minimize heat transfer by reflecting heat back into the room. This means that during winter, it helps to retain warmth inside the house, while in summer, it helps to reduce the amount of heat entering the building. The result is enhanced energy efficiency, lower energy bills, and a more comfortable living environment.

  • Toughened Glass: Toughened glass, also known as tempered glass, is a type of safety glass that undergoes a special heat treatment process to increase its strength. When compared to standard annealed glass, toughened glass is four to five times stronger. In the event of breakage, it shatters into small, relatively harmless granules, significantly reducing the risk of injury. This characteristic makes toughened glass an ideal choice for applications where safety, security, and durability are essential, such as in doors, windows, and glass partitions.

Low E toughened double glazing combines the energy efficiency benefits of Low E coatings with the strength and safety features of toughened glass. This type of glazing is an excellent choice for homeowners looking to improve their home's thermal performance, security and overall comfort.

How do you measure for bifold patio doors?

Measuring for bifold patio doors is a straightforward process that ensures a proper fit for your new doors. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you accurately measure your space:

  • Measure the width:
    - Using a tape measure, measure the width of the opening at the top, middle, and bottom. Record all three measurements.
    - Choose the smallest of the three measurements as the width. This accounts for any irregularities in the frame and ensures a proper fit.
  • Measure the height:
    - Measure the height of the opening on both the left and right sides, as well as in the center. Take note of all three measurements.
    - Select the smallest of the three measurements as the height. This accommodates any discrepancies in the frame and guarantees an accurate fit.
  • Measure the door frame's depth:
    - Measure the depth of the door frame from the interior to the exterior surface. This is essential for determining the correct door frame size.
    - Ensure that the depth is sufficient to accommodate the bifold door system's required depth, including tracks and hardware.
  • Make allowances for fitting:
    - Factor in any necessary clearance for the top and bottom tracks, as well as side frames. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines for specific allowances.
    - Adjust your measurements accordingly to account for these clearances.
  • Double-check your measurements:
    - Re-measure the width, height, and depth to confirm their accuracy before ordering your bifold patio doors.
    - It's always a good idea to have someone else verify your measurements to avoid any mistakes.

By carefully following these steps, you can ensure a perfect fit for your new bifold patio doors, making installation smooth and hassle-free.
